I knew a girl, her name was Truth
She was a horrible liar
She couldn't spend one day alone
But she couldn't be satisfied

When you have everything
You have everything to lose
She made herself a bed of nails
And she's planning on putting it to use

But she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

A candle throws it's light into the darkness
In a nasty world so shines a good deed
Make sure the fortune that you seek
Is the fortune that you need

So tell me why the first to ask
Is the last to give every time
What you say and do not mean
Follows you close behind

She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
Diamonds
Diamonds

Like the soldier long standing under fire
Any change comes as a relief
Let the giver's name remain unspoken
Well she is just a generous thief

But she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds
(Diamonds)
Ohh diamonds
She had diamonds
(Wore)
She wore diamonds
(Diamonds)
Diamonds
