Bek Lyrics

Diamond In The Sleaze

(From the Japan Nobody's Fault But My Own Single)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

A diamond in the sleaze
Down on bended knees
A thousand grizzled nerves
Hangin' loose at the end
It's later than you think
It's gone before you blink
Out of the crosshairs and into the crowd

Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go?

A lion in the cage
Shakes his golden mane
He doesn't care who notices where he's gonna lie
You came to beg a meal, you're older than you feel
Keyboard of your memory is comin' apart

It's a weight upon my shoulder
It's a weight upon my shoulder
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go?
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go

The doctor takes a rest
Inside a hornets nest
Polaroids of patients
Who refuse to be cured
A life lived under glass
Stolen Cadillacs
Can you hear the saxophones peelin' the paint

Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go?
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
