Sell Me a Diamond

This song is by David Crosby and appears on the album Sky Trails (2017).

He wanted to sell me a diamond
He said it was conflict free
Was such a beautiful concept
That such a thing could be
See it shining on the velvet
Faceted fire lying there
While I listen to a couple arguing
Three feet behind my chair

Bitterness soaks their voices
It's been riding them for years
Anger they keep on carrying
Old hurt words in their ears

Sell me a diamond, I have to know
If this transaction is the key to letting go
Empty my pockets, you'll find a ring
Is there a crime if no one loses anything
Sell me a diamond, one fluid moment
And seven crows above could be an omen
Sell me a diamond

I'll just stop watching news I guess
You know that would be a gift
Just listen to children laughing
And give myself a lift

And maybe I'll see somebody
Kind to someone in the street
And I will give this gift to
The next diamond soul I meet

Sell me a diamond, one fluid moment
You know seven crows above could be an omen
Empty my pockets, you'll find a ring
Is there a crime if no one loses anything
Sell me a diamond, I have to know
If this transaction is the key to letting go
Sell me a diamond

Makes conflict free sound good to me
Makes conflict free sound good to me
Makes conflict free sound good to me
Makes conflict free sound good to me
