  • Diamond rings and old barstools
    One's for queens and one's for fools
    One's the future and one's the past
    One's forever and one won't last

    It ain't like midnight and cigarette smoke
    It ain't like watered down whiskey and coke
    I guess some things just don't mix like you hoped
    Like me and you
    And diamond rings and old barstools

    The wrongs and rights, the highs and lows
    The "I love you's," the "I told you so's"
    Past few miles to wherever is home
    Another morning waking up alone

    It ain't like midnight and cigarette smoke
    It ain't like watered down whiskey and coke
    I guess some things just don't mix like you hoped
    Like me and you
    And diamond rings and old barstools

    We ain't like midnight and cigarette smoke
    Nothing like watered down whiskey and coke
    I guess some things just don't mix like you hoped
    Like me and you
    And diamond rings and old barstools Writer/s: Barry George Dean, Jonathan David Singleton, Luke Robert Laird
