Lyrics

Stones out my bed

Written By: Grant James

Everything is silent
With my eyes upon the rocks
I'm over at the glasshouse
Looking out on empty docks
take me to your goldmine
Show me the dreams in your head
I'm begging with you lover
Kick these stones out of my bed.

Youve met my brother Michael
he has a stone on his cross
eyes that burn your heart out
Just like chilli sauce
I got 3 wheels on my mercedes
still got a mission in my head
I'm begging with you lover
Kick these stones out of my bed
