      About "Diamond In The Rough"

      Lyrics for Shawn Colvin - "Diamond In The Rough"

      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

      Ever 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
