Diamonds and Stiletto Shoes

Has anybody said it
Has anybody had the nerve
Has anybody told you
Some day you will get what you deserve
Has anybody mentioned you ain't got no lovin' in your heart
This is not a happy ending
I knew it from the start

You’ve got diamonds and stiletto shoes
And you never bother with the blues
Living on the run
Cutting everyone
With your diamonds and stiletto shoes

No one ever taught you anything
Because you know it all
No one ever reached you
No one’s ever broken down the wall
Nothin’ I can do will alter how you navigate the world
Mama may have raised you
But you’re really daddy’s little girl


How I longed to be close to you baby
But you knew how to hurt and to hate me
I said child, open up, have a heart
See the light!
Or say goodnight
