lyrics

stones

let's take a walk out in the garden
feel the stones beneath your shoes
aint no getting around the truth
there's a technicolour sunset
but all you see is gray
clouds hang in your way

could it be you believe there's seeds left to sow
with no one else to blame for being left alone
could it be you lost a diamond
while you collected stones

all we ever have are chances
every key unlocks a door
every wave finds a distant shore
so take your glass and smash it
on the stones beneath your feet
turn you back on what you see

could it be you believe there's seeds left to sow
with no one else to blame for being left alone
could it be you lost a diamond while you collected stones

in another life, everything's alright, yeah
in another world, throwing swine at pearls, yeah, yeah

could it be you believe there's dreams in the stones
and no one left to say you'll dream them alone
could it be you lost a diamond
while you collected stones

Cletis Carr Nashville, Tennessee

Singer-songwriter Cletis Carr knows a good yarn. Especially when paired with a good melody and some gritty slide guitar.
