Richard Clapton - Diamond Mine lyrics

Clapton

The city haze in the summertime
The traffic rolls like a serpentine
Sitting down here by the harbor with a six pack of cold beer
So many thoughts fly round my head and then they disappear.

Back in the days when I was young
I found a place where I belonged
But there's been so many changes, innocence got complicated
I'm a prisoner of my dreams and this tangled web I've weaved.

Lost my way in the city lights
Now I try too hard to make up the time
The journey doesn't end here and the end is not in sight
If I keep on digging deeper, there'll be diamonds down the mine.

Long ago in the underworld
I was down and out 'til I met a girl
And she never tried to change me and I knew she trusted in me
Led me through her garden gate 'til I finally found my way.

The road is dark and it ain't too clear
Whatever things have brought me here
Sometimes brings me so undone and I knew this day would come
When I would finally see through the shadows of my dreams.

Lost my way in the city lights
Now I try too hard to make up the time
Looking back over my shoulder at the shadows of my dreams
Though I can't escape the future trying to fight my way upstream.

Though I know there's so far to go
There's so much to do, so much room to grow
The journey doesn't end here, I can make up for lost time
If I keep on digging deeper, there'll be diamonds down the mine.

I'm sitting down by the harbor side
So many things flying 'round my mind
Can't stop thinking about you, baby, you have brought me so much good
I wish that I could find the words but I'm so misunderstood.

Lost my way in the city lights
Now I try too hard to make up the time
The journey doesn't end here and the end is not in sight
If I keep on digging deeper, there'll be diamonds down the mine.

I thought that I had a poet's mind
I've tried so hard, but I can't describe
What it is about you, baby, I can't seem to get it right
But my every imperfection you have filled up with your light.

Lost my way in the city lights
Now I try too hard to make up the time
Looking back over my shoulder at the shadows of my dreams
Though I can't escape the future trying to fight my way upstream.

Lost my way in the city lights
Now I try too hard to make up the time
The journey doesn't end here and the end is not in sight
If I keep on digging deeper, there'll be diamonds down the mine.
