Song Stories: Raw Diamond Ring

I didn’t think I’d ever get to a point where I felt like truly looking into a ring.  She always liked raw diamonds - and I paid attention.  It didn’t work out and thankfully no rings were purchased, but the song was too good to throw away along with the relationship.  “Two lovers, two fighters, two ships out at sea… / Threading the needle with astonishing ease.” That’s where I was at one point.  And that’s where I hope to be again one day.  I hope this song brings joy to those people who are so intertwined and deeply connected to one another that they’d consider spending the rest of their lives together.  Sometimes you lose yourself in the best way. I want this song to allow people to get lost for just a few minutes of unfiltered, unwavering hope and happiness.
