Paper Diamonds

[V1}
Walking through life with ambitions
Dreamis what the future might hold
Nothing to stop all our visions
Nothing but fortune and gold
Worked all our lives to build our dreams
Spent far too long though apart
Paid all our bills but still struggled
So now our heartaches must start

[Chorus]
My life's filled with paper diamonds, promises that can't be met
We fill our lives with paper diamonds
None of them have worked out yet
We filled our lives with paper diamonds, none of them have worked out yet
My life's filled with paper diamonds
Promises that can't be met

[V2]
Work hard for so little money
Nothing we can do to change that
Lived the best years of our lives
This is now where we are at
Dreams were our paper diamonds
None have worked for us yet
Must be more than paper diamonds
We've just not found out yet

[Chorus]
My life's filled with paper diamonds, promises that can't be met
We fill our lives with paper diamonds
None of them have worked out yet
We filled our lives with paper diamonds, none of them have worked out yet
My life's filled with paper diamonds
Promises that can't be met

[Chorus]
My life's filled with paper diamonds, promises that can't be met
We fill our lives with paper diamonds
And though those stones are set.
The give no sparkle. they don't shine they are worthless fake and yet,
We fill our lives with paper diamonds
They're all that we can get
