Lyrics

Didn’t I always say-ay-ay
I wouldn’t end up this way-ay-ay?
Hostage to a silent telephone;
Forgotten how to be alone.

Thought I heard a siren’s song;
Lingered there and stayed too long.
We give away our necklaces of pearl
Before we see the tail twirl,

And it was
A trick of the light
Turned sand into gold,
The diamonds I saw were
The sun in my eyes.
I thought I carried
Winners’ treasure,
But it was only
A consolation prize.


Funny how all my dreams came true -
The ones I dreamed for you-ou-ou.
I hadn’t seen you happy for a while;
It’s good to see you smile.

(Chorus:)
It was
A trick of the light
Turned sand into gold,
The diamonds I saw were
The sun in my eyes.
I thought I was your
Hidden treasure,
But I was only
Your consolation prize.

Filling up time,
Blocking the view -
The memories of her,
The memories of you.
Filling up time,
Blocking the view -
The memories of her,
The memories of you.

(Chorus)
A trick of the light
Turned sand into gold,
The diamonds I saw were
The sun in my eyes.
I thought I was your
Hidden treasure,
But I was only
A consolation prize.
