Coal Makes Diamonds Lyrics

Blue October – Coal Makes Diamonds Lyrics

from album: Home (2016)
[Verse 1]
If I'm a desert, my face is the wind
I know where I'm going and I know where I've been
You're the horizon and the wide open space
And I surround you, caressing your face
There's not a limit to the things that I'd do
I'd give you stars, but the stars wouldn't do
You're like the lava burning buried below
An eruption but too early to show

[Pre-Chorus]
We are islands
Hear our sirens
And so we wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)
We wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)

[Chorus]
'Cause when pressure heightens
Our coal makes diamonds
And so we wait... (wait, down, in front of me)
We wait... (wait, down, wait, down)

[Verse 2]
The flood comes shifting the soil
Our blood runs thicker than oil
It's like erosion, cutting straight to the core
No human nature ever felt this before

[Verse 2]
And we become an unbreakable vow
I wanna hold you up, higher than most
Because it feels like flying out

[Pre-Chorus]
We are islands
Hear our sirens
And so we wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)
We wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)

[Chorus]
'Cause when pressure heightens
Our coal makes diamonds
And so we wait... (wait, down, in front of me)
We wait... (wait, down, wait, down)
(Wait, down, in front of me)

[Pre-Chorus]
We are islands
Hear our sirens
And so we wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)
We wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)

[Chorus]
'Cause when pressure heightens
Our coal makes diamonds
And so we wait... (wait, down, in front of me)
We wait... (wait, down, wait, down)

Wait, down, in front of me
Wait, down
