I-I am a diamond and I cannot be broken
I-I am a diamond and I cannot be broken

Mother please don't cry for me
I rolled the dice
just give it some time

If you could just be kind
to me
'cuz I don't care
The life I waste is
mine.

It don't mean much in the grand scheme
I've given up and given
everything

Chorus:
It's worth repeating
over again
I'll keep my head up and swallow my pride
again
I'll give it away
again
It's been dead so long it can't die there
again.

I-I am a diamond and I cannot be broken
I-I am a diamond and I cannot be broken

Mother mine's a foolish game
but
the same could be said
said about yours

He took your youth and he took your name
What did YOUR journey here ensure?

(chorus)

Bridge:
I'm all grown up
I've got my pride
Why let me live
to let me die?

I'm all grown up now
I've got my pride
Let me live
Let me die.

(chorus)

I-I am a diamond and I cannot be broken
I-I am a diamond and I cannot be broken

You're a diamond too
I was cut from you
