Lyrics

Diamonds On The Inside
I knew a girl
Her name was Truth
She was a horrible liar
She could not spend
One day alone
And she couldn't be satisfied

When you have everything
You’ve got everything to lose
She made herself
Oh, a bed of nails
and she planned on putting it to use

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

A candle burns its 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, oh, so close behind

But but you have diamonds on the inside
Diamonds on the inside
You have diamonds
On the inside
Diamonds

Whoa, whoa
Yeah

Like the soldier
caught under fire
any change comes as a relief
Let the giver's name remain
unspoken, she was just a generous thief

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

Oh and you have diamonds on the inside
Diamonds on the inside
