Lyrics
I've searched the world over all of my life
Just looking for something
To make my love shine
Like a candle that burns in the night
But I came up with nothing
Till I looked in your eyes
Deeper and deeper inside

And all of the treasures
I found in your soul
Was like finding a diamond
When you're mining for coal

I've been a fool for glitter and gold
And women that sparkle shiny and cold
Like a statue carved out of ice
They shimmer like tinsel
On a blue Christmas night
But they never were quite so bright

As all of the treasures
That loving you holds
It's like finding a diamond
When you're mining for coal

I was a miner
And you were a rock in the dust
But you became flawless
When you were you polished by love

And when I found you
I lost all control
I found me a diamond
Just mining for coal
