What lasts forever ?

Hi michael,

it is hard to tell what will last longer in life, material stuff or love ?
At least when Shirley Bassey sings it, it sounds very convincing to me, that “…diamonds will lustre on, when love”s gone.”

Diamonds are forever
Sparkling round my little finger
Unlike men, the diamonds linger
Men are mere mortals who are not worth going to your grave for

I don”t need love
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me
For when love”s gone
They”ll lustre on

/ghazal

Hi Ghazal, my Dear

There is no doubt, that the diamonds will lustre on, and they will last forever, even when the love is gone. But I think that their sparkling shine will lose its importance for us. Maybe it will even become painful, since it reminds us of better times.

Shirley Bassey also had songs with the complete opposite connotation, for instance in this one “the way a woman loves” it says “… a man would love discretely, a woman gives herself away completely.”
