about

Down-to-earth. Playful. "Harder Than Diamonds."
Jesse Lacy's latest song is a cocktail (shaken, not stirred) inspired by his time in New York City and a hint of themes reflected in Grammy winning song "Falling Slowly" by Glen Hansard. With it's weightless harmonies and driving rhythm section, this acoustic song will give you a hop-in-your-step.

lyrics

Harder Than Diamonds (2014)

Shared a secret with a stranger
as she cashed out my bill
blushing in her apron
laughing harder than diamonds.

Found a wash in Harlem
from the hands of the children –
braided hair and barefoot
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.

Caught a moment in the grass
where the lovers were rooted,
exchanging dimpled glances,
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.

Traded time for stories
where the creek was golden.
Poked your thigh of sunburn,
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.
