lyrics

I wear my heart on my sleeve but I need a reprieve
Because I'm ever so clumsyI walk into things
I need some armour, protection, a nice thick coat
I need a bigger buffer maybe build me a moat
around, my heart
that feels, like a good start

Being vulnerable isn't always so easy,
You heart can get bruised, made to feel sleezy
Like you're just too much, Or not enough
Or want different things
Maybe just a little fun, or maybe
Diamond Rings

Life is so simple, and yet it's so hard
every time you score a touchdown, you lose another yard
One step forward and two steps back
everytime I start over how I want to go back to the start
1,2,3, wish it could be forever first dates
movies and ice creams
like the first time, we kissed in your car that night
before I ever wanted more, before I ever cried

Being vulnerable isn't always so easy,
You heart can get bruised, made to feel sleezy
Like you're just too much, Or not enough
Or want different things
Maybe just a little fun, or maybe
Diamond Rings

Being vulnerable isn't always so easy,
You heart can get bruised, made to feel sleezy
Like you're just too much, Or not enough
Or want different things, or like you're too off the cuff
Maybe you're just not the one
or maybe just a little bit of fun
or maybe we want different things
or maybe, just maybe
Diamond Rings
don't mean a thing, oh no
no it don't have to mean a thing
it's a little, a little old, a little old
diamond ring
