"Diamond Mine" as written by and Richard Clapton Colin Coorie....
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
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
