Mining For Coal Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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

Well, 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 polished by love

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

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