Social Distortion – Diamond in the rough lyrics

Well I've been up, yeah,
And I've been down.
Been kicked around, yeah,
This god-forsaken town.
So many faults, so little time.
I've gotta find my piece of mind.
Piece of mind. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I was looking for somethin',
Anything at all.
Something to believe in,
Spray painted on the walls.
I've made mistakes, yeah, I've payed for them too.
What's a punk boy supposed to do?

Then she said you're like a diamond in the rough.
You're dirty and you're damaged,
All you need's a little love.
But inside there's a sparkle, like the stars above.
You'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough.

There was a time when, I could not say,
I got a reason to live another day.
I'll pick my fights, yeah, I'll pick some more.
Won't you help me up from the floor?

I've been chasing you like a diamond in the rough.
You're damaged and you're dirty,
All you need's a little love.
But inside you sparkle, like the stars above.
You'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough.

I've been chasing you like a diamond in the rough.
You're dirty and you're damaged,
All you need's a little love.
But inside you sparkle, like the stars above.
You'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough.

Yeah, yeah, like a diamond in the rough.
Yeah, yeah, all you need's a little love.
Yeah, yeah, like the stars above.
You'll be there in the morning, when the going gets tough.

Diamond in the rough, yeah, yeah.
Like the stars above, yeah, yeah.
All you need's a little love, yeah, yeah.
