Take the rings off your fingers as if they were tears and find a new kind of beauty to put a silver lining on your golden years All your clever talk and your glamour bright lies you don't hear anymore You've gone so far out all you want is the tide to take you back to the shore Take courage Take courage said the sign You used to wait for it every morning Now you are looking so dumb and they don't see you standing there Trying to figure out why all your promises left you hanging in mid-air And you lost your war of words, but your heart was strong. You said, "the dirt can have my pretty things, but to the earth my heart does not belong. if we could walk without our crutches would we have anything to offer them? if we could walk without our crutches would they have anything to see. take the rings off your fingers. as if they were tears cause all the diamonds are hollow and ring painfully in our ears. and if you want someone to help you. don't get carried away. last thing you need right now is a lesson in humility. take courage. take courage. said the sign. you used to wait for it every morning. every morning. every morning. but now you see that it was just another woman.
