Just like this troubles that I'm leaving to the wind.
Like sapphires in boxcars speeding towards the end.

Jewel box of sadness, bring to catch your tear
Crystallize illusion shine, forgot I'm here

Silver studs of promise hide in the red crushed velvet folds.
Inaction, intention, like emeralds I stole.
My speech of custom gold.
I think I ought to know.
Jewel box of sadness, bring to catch your tear
Crystallize illusion shine, forgot I'm here
Jewel box of sadness, bring to catch your tear
Oh, you left some stars in my belly.
You left some stars in my belly.
You left some stars in my belly.
