Diamond Dust is scattered
    On my velvet sky
    A window pane shattered
    And they waved goodbye

    The moonlight then glinted
    On the broken shards of glass
    Their goodbyes were tinted
    Their sins you could not surpass

    They got on their seaworthy vessels
    Ready to fly away
    And in their skin the glass nestles
    I guess it leaves today

    Now the velvet is slightly battered
    And diamond dust is in short supply
