Lyrics Diamonds and Rust

Well I'll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that's not unusual it's just that the moon is full and you happened to call
And here I sit hand on the telephone hearing a voice I'd known
A couple of light years ago heading straight for a fall
As I remember your eyes were bluer than robin's eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?
A booth in the midwest
Ten years ago
I bought you some cufflinks
You brought me something
We both know what memories can bring they bring diamonds and rust
Well you burst on the scene already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell to keep you unharmed
Now I see you standing with brown leaves falling around and snow in your hair
Now you're smiling out the window of that crummy hotel over Washington Square
Our breath comes out white clouds mingles and hangs in the air speaking strictly for me
We both could have died then and there
Now you're telling me you're not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words and at keeping things vague
Because I need some of that vagueness now it's all come back too clearly
Yes I loved you dearly and if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid
