Diamond In The Rough Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

As a little girl I came down to the water
With a little stone in my hand
And it would shimmer and sing
And I knew everything

In a little while I got steeped in authority
Heaven only knows what when wrong when there is
Nothing so cruel than to bury that jewel
When it was mine all along and I'm gonna find it

You're shining, I can see you
You're smiling, that's enough well
I'm holding onto you like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

Every now and then I can see that I am getting somewhere
Where I have to go is so deep
I was angry back then and you know I still am
I have lost too much sleep and I'm gonna find it

You're shining, I can see you
You're smiling, that's enough well
I'm holding onto you like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

Snake's in the grass, better step on the gas

In my dreams I go down by the water
With a little girl in my arms and we shimmer
And sing and we know everything
As a little girl I came down

You're shining, I can see you
You're smiling, that's enough well
I'm holding onto you like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough
