lyrics

A little closer to the sun or a little bit further away
We would all be frozen stiffs or going down in flames
But we keep hanging on
Here in the right place
mercy don’t care if you call her
gravity or grace

a diamond aint nothing but a stone
dug up from the ground when they put a price tag on
add a little polish, people play along
still a diamond aint nothing but a stone


Daddy done alright by me
gave more than he got
the records in his cabinet
Told me things he could not
I can find peace of mind
sunday morning road alone
Tuned into a station
playing honest songs


CHORUS and Music break

I can pick a flower for my girl, she don’t need a rose


CHORUS
