If it's good to complicate
Then both of us are doing fine
Just keep your eyes on your part
And leave me alone to mine

If it's good to instigate
We're a fast horse, bet on us
I'm not calling you an animal
I think we just fight too much
Come on!

In spite of this we're doing just fine
Even diamonds start as coal
Give us time to shine
Even diamonds start as coal

We're both aligned in frame of mind
But circumstance got us good
And now you're seeing a side of me
I wish no one ever would

Yeah if it's right to pick a fight
We're fingers in a sugar bowl
Love isn't perfect
Even diamonds start as coal

In spite of this we're doing just fine
Even diamonds start as coal
Give us time to shine
Even diamonds start out as coal

Even diamonds start as coal
Yeah we're incomplete and infanitile
Even diamonds start as coal
Aye!

Give it time girl, the fire feels divine
The sweetest things they burn before they shine
We think way too much (we think way too much)
Look at us losing touch (and we're losing touch)
A promise is a promise until...

Yeah, in spite of this we're doing just fine
Even diamonds start as coal
Give us time to shine
Even diamonds start as coal
Ohhh oooo hoooo oooo ooo

Even diamonds start as coal
Yeah we're incomplete and infantine
Even diamonds start as coal
Aye!
