lyrics

I keep wandering around digging my hands into the mud
I keep scanning the ground but I have not yet found
This little piece of purity, of perfect symmetry
And oh so naturally

I keep collecting stones

I keep your stone inside a box beneath my bed
It lets me never forget how you feel about me
And I want you to know how I feel about you
My love is true

I keep collecting stones

I got a whole collection, it's kind of rare indeed
Still I can't decide which stone should be yours to keep
I got egg-shaped, heart-shaped, marble white and gem-like stones
Volcanic rocks and copper shale

I keep collecting stones

I no longer want to wait, there are no stones in perfect shape
I need to tell you right away, I fell in love with you that day
I reach for my collection, afraight of your reaction
Now it's your selection

Choose a stone
Keep it close
Love us both
