Billy Talent

Diamond on a Landmine

Intro

[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
[woah-ah-oh]

Verse 1

Slapped my face, slammed the door
A dozen roses lay on the floor
I saw her friends and I was told
She blocked my number from her cell phone
 
You said we were meant to be
Now this obsession is killing me
Until I have a heart attack
I’ll keep on trying to win you back

Pre-Chorus

^[Alone at last]
I can’t wait till we’re ^[alone at last]
All I wanted was a second chance, second chance
To ^[hold you in my arms at last]

Chorus

Forever, forever
I’ll walk a thousand miles
Just to tell her, to tell her
Our love is still alive
 
And I’ll never, I’ll never
I’ll never let it die
[Well, you better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
 
Backings (layered)

[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
[woah-ah-oh]

Verse 2

I’m not so sure about this word
But she kept calling me insecure
I tried to quit but there’s no use
‘Cause I’m addicted to her abuse
 
She’s in control of everything
I’m just a puppet, she pulls my strings
Denying truth, I’ll test my fate
And keep on playing this wicked game

Pre-Chorus

^[Alone at last]
I can’t wait till we’re ^[alone at last]
All I wanted was a second chance, second chance
To hold you ^[in my arms at last]

Chorus

Forever, forever
I’ll walk a thousand miles
Just to tell her, to tell her
Our love is still alive
 
And I’ll never, I’ll never
I’ll never let it die
[Well, you better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
 
[You better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
[You better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
 
Waiting to explode
 
Backings (layered)

[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]

Bridge

We’re dancing on thin ice before
Frozen from the winter’s cold
And if it were the crack below
I’d never let you go

Pre-Chorus

^[Alone at last]
I can’t wait till we’re ^[alone at last]
All I wanted was a second chance, second chance
To hold you ^[in my arms at last]

Chorus

Forever, forever
I’ll walk a thousand miles
Just to tell her, to tell her
Our love is still alive
 
And I’ll never, I’ll never
I’ll never let it die
[Well, you better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
 
[You better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
[You better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
 
Waiting to explode
 
Backings (layered)

[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]

Outro

[You better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
[You better watch your step]
She’s a diamond on a landmine
 
[You better not touch that]
Diamond on a landmine
[You're better to forget that]
Diamond on a landmine
 
Waiting to explode
 
Backings (layered)

[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
[woah-ah-oh]
[woah-oh]
