A stone turned up where no stones turned up where stones turn up, where we dug today... A stone turned up when no stones turned up where stones turn up, when we dug today... Maybe if you saw it with my eyes, and from my cracking heart...Maybe if you held it in my shaking hands, maybe if you saw it through my steaming tears... Maybe if you saw it there, where stones turn up when, today no stones turned up. You, too woulda seen the heartstone I saw as I buried the heart I buried where stones turn up.
