I won’t apologize if you get blinded

Trying to chase after me-

The diamond you left in the dust

So long ago she’s an antique now

It was your force that sent this bridge

Crashing under the sea

But I turned into a mermaid and got to work

On cleaning off the silt while you wore a suit

So now the diamond you left in the dust

Is shunting, she’s on display, she’s glorious

And she’s singing her song, not one for you.

For once she’s not sorry.
