Lyrics

Tamara
Word and Music by RAW Boswin


A stitch in time, That's me in the mine, And that's Tamara beside me...
This photograph, well it reads like a map And it always serves to remind me
We cut our lives from the depths of the loam, Picking coal from the table
Lifting millions of would-be diamonds, From the pit to the edge of the rainbow,
Before they light up the sky...

Don't worry, we can make it through Tamara, We'll work the seam so we'll be taken care of,
We're feeding the lines and the lights of the city...

While I'm at work, so deep in the earth, I feel the devil beside me,
I think of you, its all I can do, when the earth started moving around me..
Another Driller set another charge, Another fire in the hole
A hundred tons of rock come flying and the pit starts raining coal
And the driller said it's out of control

Chorus 2
You shine the light, Tamara you remind me, there's a hundred men trying to find me
Feeding the lines and the lights of the city... Yeah

Instrumental Break

A stitch in time, that's me in the mine, The Holy Father beside me
We took a trip to the edge of the rainbow, before we lit up the sky...

Chorus 3
Don't worry, we can make it through Tamara, We'll work the seam so we'll be taken care of,
We're feeding the lines and the lights of the city...
