Shawn Colvin – Diamond In The Rough lyrics

Shawn colvin - john leventhal

As a little girl I came down to the water
With a little stone in my hand
It would shimmer and sing
And we knew everything
As a little girl I came down


But in a little while I got steeped in authority
Heaven only knows what went wrong
There is nothing so cruel than
To bury that jewel
When it was mine all along
I'm gonna find it


You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough


Every now and then
I can see that I'm 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
But I'm gonna find it


You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough


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
In my dreams I go down


You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough
