Rubies and Rocks

from by Thao & Mirah



I had it all, yes I believed
Everything I was holding effortlessly

Was made out of rubies and rocks, rocks, rocks
Out of diamonds and stones, stones, stones
With pearls I painted
Myself a home, home, home

Remember when I said
Oh baby please take me, on down the road of love
And you never mind, where the chains come from

Never wanted to stop, stop, stop
Just wanted to roll, roll, roll
You kept it hot, hot, hot
You knew how to hold me, but that would not hold

Now, was it that you set me free, when you did that you did to me
You said you were my family, but what does that really mean

When you let me drop, drop, drop
You just went cold, cold, cold
All the rubies and rocks, rocks, rocks
I bought got sold, sold, sold

Now everybody on the left side, and everybody on the right
Clap your hands and sing it to me, we've got all night

When you find it you've got to hold
Gotta keep that love in your life
All the hearts are gold, gold, gold
When they're shined up just right
