Yoakam, Dwight - If Teardrops Were Diamonds Lyrics

If teardrops were diamonds
And only mine were used
They could pave every highway
Coast to coast

And not be close to through
If teardrops were diamonds
Cold blue
If heartaches were rubies
Stacked up just like stones
There would be a mountain
Ten miles high
Built by mine alone
If heartaches were rubies
Mine alone
You might begin to understand
The price that love has to pay
For being wrong


If sad thoughts were emeralds
And with not counting
In between
Just half the ones
I've had today
Could turn
The whole world green
If sad thoughts were emeralds
And the world turned green

You might just
Get the message that
There's more to loneliness
Than can be seen
If teardrops were diamonds
And only mine were used...

    I know people see this when they listen to the song so with that, I just have to say : I am gonna die with a Brokin Heart Not only cause of these songs I listen to its just the way the people / So called friends treat me and it seems to never stop so here I sit  home alone with a broken heart and all alone with so much on my mind Get this I have been alone for 5 days now in the past its not normal to not speak or see someone but this time its different not to see or hear from anyone WHAT A LIFE well I just gotta try to get through another night this time with a few drinks and more tears


    Are you rea l?
