I look up; the sky is full of diamonds
My hands off the cuffs, remindin’ me of home
And it’s a ways, ways away

I guess the people meant to stay should never go
They say that people change; it’s just us getting older
But it’s a shame if you felt the same
Oh, the heartache

What more does one need than to be what you please?
Please tell me how to explain this to me
A sailor with no sea, a burden with no plea
All the countless times I’ve waited countlessly

I’ll wait in vein in the pouring rain all night

To my dad and mom, I hope your sleep is calming
You know you showed me home and surrounded me with bliss
From Tennessee my love can be seen so easily

With so much to say and you cannot find a way
Way out beyond what seems already gone
For the sins I don’t repay and the leaves – they do not change
I live for all who I hold close to me

Without the coals the fire slows and goes away
