Diamond Tears

Author:Troy
Theme: Tribulation/Purification/testing

V.1 (Mother) torn from me Because she was too old
Orphaned to the world of wicked (cruel, warring, murder) man
Cold- alone naked in the snow
Her tears freezing in my tiny hands

DIAMOND TEARS ; DIAMOND TEARS

V.2 I have swallowed (mother's) all her tears inside me
Hiding from the cruel unkind
All the mud and blood are washed away now
On my heart they brightly shine

DIAMOND TEARS ; DIAMOND TEARS

BRIDGE: They cannot die
Cannot be crushed
Eternal, strong like mother's love
Love cannot be (destroyed) burned up by fear
It's Tough and hard like diamond tears

V3: I will give these tears to my daughter
and she will pass them to her child
They will see- We are the real diamonds
Diamonds that will always shine

DIAMOND TEARS ; DIAMOND TEARS; DIAMOND TEARS ; DIAMOND TEARS

TAG: I am Touching (holding, clutching) my mother's tears - DIAMOND TEARS
I am crying my mother's tears - DIAMOND TEARS
I am wearing my mother's tears - DIAMOND TEARS
I am ONE OF my mother's tears - DIAMOND TEARS

SHORT VERSION: Young tears fall like honey
Trailing down your face
Old tears cut like diamonds
Paths time won't erase

Torn from my old mother
Orphaned to cruel man
Naked in the cold snow
tears freezing in my hands

DIAMOND TEARS

I have swallowed them deep inside me
To hide from the unkind
But the blood and mud have washed away
And on my heart they shine

I will give them to my daughter
She''ill pass them to her child
They'll see- We are the diamonds
That will always shine

DIAMOND TEARS

IDEAS:

OPTIONAL 1st VERSE: When young tears (tears first) fall they feel warm like water
(rolling) Trailing softly down your face
When tears grow old they cut hard like diamonds
tearing (making) paths time can't erase
I am touching my mother's tears...

CHORUS: I am touching my mother's tears
they are hard like Diamonds
I am Touching (clutching) my mother's tears
And in her tears I find her (they sing to me in silence)

All she left was what was in her cloak

Hide our tears from those who hate us
Our tears may buy us time
We are the real diamonds
Shedding tears to buy us time

(Diamonds from the one who made us)

I have hidden her tears from those who hate us
Who can never understand our love
Who could not see that we are the real diamonds
Children of our God above
(My mother, sister, father brother and I)

Mother's Tears are made of diamonds
I touch her tears and there I find her


I am touching my mother's tears (diamond tears)
I find her (they sing to me in silence)
