Mining For Coal

This song is by Randy Travis and appears on the album No Holdin' Back (1989).

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 nothin'
'Til 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.

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 you 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...
