Judas Priest – Diamonds and Rust [Joan Baez]


This is how you Rock God…

Artist: Judas Priest
Album: Sin After Sin
Year: 1977

Lyrics:
I’ll be damned, here comes your ghost again
But that’s not unusual
It’s just that the moon is full
And you decided to call
And here I sit, hand on the telephone
Hearing the voice I’d known
A couple of light years ago
Headed straight for a fall
But we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust
Yes we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust
Now I see you standing with brown leaves all around and snow in your hair
Now we’re smiling out the window of the crummy hotel over Washington Square
Our breath comes in white clouds, mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me we both could’ve died then and there
Now you’re telling me you’re not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You were so good with words
And at keeping things vague
‘Cause I need some of that vagueness now
It’s all come back too clearly, yes, I love you dearly
And if you’re offering me diamonds and rust, I’ve already paid
But we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust
Yes we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust
Diamonds, diamonds and rust
Diamonds, diamonds and rust
Diamonds, diamonds and rust
Diamonds, diamonds and rust
