lyrics

Oh how I long for those warm soft breezes
The hot dogs, the popcorn, the beer, and the peanuts
Some seasons we lost, yeah we took quite a beating
But came back the next year to win what a feeling

And I’ll miss how you taught me to love this game
And I’ll miss how you taught me to pitch, not to aim
How no two innings are ever the same
How the game’s never over as long as you play
And it still isn’t over ya know

Cuz there’s a diamond in the sky
Where they’ll play for you and I
Where the lights they shine so bright
Where we’ll root all through the night

That little league game where the scouts came down
But I couldn’t find the strike zone and ran from the mound
As I cried like a babe, you said son there’s no hurry
Your grace under pressure will come, don’t you worry

You’re the goat one day but the next day redeemed
You can pick yourself up and move on from defeat
Yeah your failure just lasts ‘til your next at bat
And life can be hard, but as simple as that
And it never is over ya know

Cuz there’s a diamond in the sky
Where you’ll pitch to me this time
Where the sun it shines so bright
Where you’ll throw only strikes

There’s a diamond in the sky
Where they’ll play for you and I
Where the lights they shine so bright
Where we’ll root all through the night
