Some days are diamonds
Some days are rocks
Some doors are open
Some roads are blocked

Sundowns are golden
Then fade away
And if I never do nothing
I'll get you back some day

Because you got a heart so big it could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down

And all around your island
There's a barricade
It keeps out the danger
It holds in the pain

And sometimes you're happy
Sometimes you cry
Half of me is ocean
Half of me is sky

But you got a heart so big it could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down

Yes, they do

Oh!

And some things are over
Some things go on
And part of me you carry
Part of me is gone

But you got a heart so big it could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down
Baby, you got a heart so big it could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down

Yeah, I guess they do

Yes, they do

They fall down
