Diamonds and Rust (鑽石與鐵鏽) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Written by:Joan Baez

Well I'll be damned here comes your ghost again

But that's not unusual

It's just that the moon is full

And you happen 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

 

As I remember your eyes

Were bluer than robin's eggs

My poetry was lousy you said

Where are you calling from

 

A booth in the midwest

 

Ten years ago

I bought you some cufflinks

 

You brought me something

We both know what memories can bring

They bring diamonds and rust

 

You burst on the scene

Already a legend

 

The unwashed phenomenon

The original vagabond

You strayed into my arms

 

And there you stayed

Temporarily lost at sea

The Madonna was yours for free

Yes the girl on the half shell

 

Would keep you unharmed

 

Now I see you standing

With brown leaves falling around

And snow in your hair

Now you're smiling out the window

Of that crummy hotel

Over Washington Square

Our breath comes out white clouds

Mingles and hangs in the air

 

Speaking strictly for me

We both could have 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
