Hold This Shining Diamond

Chorus: Hold this shining diamond, it's your star and moonlight on those long and dark nights when I'm far and you show fright; a brighter one you surely wouldn't have found: see no distance between these lips and arms! Verse I Aren't the distant stars the shining diamonds of the awesome and mysterious universe... that God created only for those true lovers, so they would thank Him with a lovely verse? Verse II Sunsets have the pretty colors of roses, we can pick the ones we like more, we have ignored them until now, dearest love; they were all the while in front of us; from here we see an ocean with waves that gleam... it might seem that a vision in a wonderful dream! Volta: All around is quiet, someone is playing the violin, and his music moves us and makes us cry from emotion; while the foaming waves roll and roar...clear skies are ahead; no reason to hide and be afraid: no storm is in sight! Chorus: Hold this shining diamond, it's your star and moonlight on those long and dark nights when I'm far and you show fright; a brighter one you surely wouldn't have found: see no distance between these lips and arms! Verse III All we hear is the fluttering wings of shrieking geese, going for the last flight alongside the warm breeze; I put down flowers and a shiny diamond in your lap, curious people walking by stop and gladly clap; I whisper the words of an improvised poet... while you are thinking of the paintings of Monet! Chorus: Hold this shining diamond, it's your star and moonlight on those long and dark nights... when I'm far and you show fright; a brighter one you surely wouldn't have found: see no distance between these lips and arms!
