LILITH CZAR // CREATED FROM FILTH AND DUST // OUT NOW (Formerly known as Juliet Simms) Buy / Stream: Subscribe: -- DIAMONDS TO DUST // LYRICS Where do I go from here? I stand behind the cage I built around my fear This is the price I pay and itʼs so hard  Everything turns to ash When the smoke clears there ainʼt no going back no Maybe Iʼm scared of what Iʼll find  In this heart of mine  Every time I find something golden I break away before itʼs even broken  I run, to keep my heart from falling  Something that should last forever Washed away like as if it never was Here I go again turning diamonds into dust  Diamonds to dust  Is it my soul I canʼt trust Or am I hell bent in the way I self destruct Grinding the reasons to millions of pieces And taking the blame for it all   Every time I find something golden I break away before itʼs even broken  I run to keep my heart from falling  Something that should last forever Washed away like as if it never was Here I go again turning diamonds into dust Bridge I donʼt wanna run from this anymore I donʼt wanna live like this anymore  Anymore Every time I find something golden I break away before itʼs even broken  I run, to keep my heart from falling  Something that should last forever Washed away like as if it never was Here I go again turning diamonds into dust Diamonds into dust Diamonds into dust Diamonds to dust  -- FOLLOW LILITH CZAR: FOLLOW SUMERIAN RECORDS: #LilithCzar #CreatedFromFilthandDust #SumerianRecords #DiamondsToDust
