"Precious Stone" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
Life is a book and then we find the pen
Used to feel like the walls are closing in
You made decisions that you never thought you could
You've been crying in the night, yeah, yeah, yeah

You precious stone
Washed Up, feelin low
Gonna clean you up, make you feel
Like you know the answer

I've got the keys to the jail yeah (with this love)
A little love never fails yeah (overcome)
I've got the keys to the jail yeah (with this love)
A little love never fails yeah

You've been all the things that you never thought you were
You saw the devil in the night and it haunts you
Don't think about the things you can never answer
You gotta live, you gotta learn how to to love

I say,
You precious stone
Washed up, feelin low
Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you gleam yeah
You precious stone
Why we're stuck, you don't know
Gonna clean you up, make you feel
Like you know the answer

I've got the keys to your jail yeah (with this love)
A little love never fails yeah (overcome)
I've got the keys to your jail yeah (with this love)
A little love never ever fails yeah
You're the one
With this love
Overcome
With this love

You precious stone
Washed up, feelin low
Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you glow
You precious stone
Washed Up, you don't know
Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you whole
You precious stone
On the beach, you're alone
Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you gleam yeah
You precious stone
Washed Up on the beach yeah
Gonna clean you up, make you feel
Like you know the

    General CommentIn my opinion, this is one of Richards best songs. It was a B-side so it wasn't popular, but for me, this song is amazing.

    General CommentCorrect lyrics:

    Life's a book and even if we find a plan
    You still feel like the walls are closing in
    You make decisions that you never thought you could
    You've been crying in the night, yeah, yeah, yeah

    You, precious stone, washed up, feeling low
    Gonna clean you up, make you feel like you know all the answers

    I got the keys to your jail, yeah - with this love
    A little love, it never fails yeah - overcome
    I got the keys to your jail, yeah - with this love
    A little love, it never fails yeah

    You've done all the things that you never thought you would
    You shot the devil in the night, and he haunts you
    Don't think about the things you can never answer
    You gotta live, you gotta learn how to love, I said

    You, precious stone, washed up, feeling low
    Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you gleam, yeah
    You, precious stone, washed up, feeling low
    Gonna clean you up, make you feel like you know all the answers

    I got the keys to your jail, yeah - with this love
    A little love, it never fails yeah - overcome
    I got the keys to your jail, yeah - with this love
    A little love, it never fails yeah
    You're the one
    With this love
    Overcome
    With this love

    Hey you, precious stone, washed up, feeling low
    Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you glow
    Hey you, precious stone, washed up, feeling low
    Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you whole

    Hey you, precious stone, on a beach, below
    Gonna clean you up, make you shine, make you gleam yeah
    You, precious stone, washed up, on a beach
    Gonna clean you up, make you feel like you know all the answers
