Various Artists – Diamonds On The Inside lyrics

I knew a girl, her name was Truth
She was a horrible liar
She couldn't spend, she couldn't spend one day long
But she couldn't be, couldn't be satisfied

Oh now when you have, when you have everything
You have every everything to lose
She made herself a bed of nails
And she's plannin' on puttin' it to use

Cause she had diamonds on inside
She had diamonds on inside
Oh you, you have diamonds on the inside
Oh diamonds

A candle, a candle throws its light into the darkness
In a nasty world, so shines a good deed
Make sure the fortune, the fortune that you seek
Is the fortune, the fortune you need

So tell me why, why the first to ask
Is the last one to give every time
What you say, what you say and do not mean
It follows you close behind

Cause she wore diamonds on inside
She had diamonds on, on the inside
Oh you have diamonds, you have diamonds on the inside
Oh diamonds, oh diamonds, hey diamonds
Oh diamonds on the inside

Like a soldier long standing under fire
Any change, any change comes as a relief
Let the giver's name remain unspoken
For she is just a generous thief

But she wore diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
Oh you have diamonds on the inside
Oh diamonds, oh diamonds, oh diamonds
Oh she wore diamonds on the inside
Oh diamonds, diamonds on the inside
