precious stone

oh i know that i'll find the one
through the heads of confusion
like a sticky dough
i'm searching for a ruby
yeah a precious stone
but the search isn't easy
nothing but an old bone

you see 'cos i'm walking through the rows of my friends
listening to the groans of a troubled man
now i don't wanna find that i've been treated unkind
to waste precious time on an empty mind

oh i know that i'll find the one
through the heads of confusion
like a sticky dough
i'm searching for a ruby
yeah a precious stone
but the search isn't easy
nothing but an old bone

oh i know that i'll find the one
through the heads of confusion
like a sticky dough
i'm searching for a ruby
yeah a precious stone
but the search isn't easy
nothing but an old bone

i know i'll find it somewhere out in the sea
i've just got to be patient and let it find me
the tides will change and the wind will hurl
then amongst the grit i will find a pearl

oh i know that i'll find the one
through the heads of confusion
like a sticky dough
i'm searching for a ruby
yeah a precious stone
but the search isn't easy
nothing but an old bone
