Trae Tha Truth – Like A Diamond lyrics

(Bridge)
I shine bright like a diamond… (x5)

(Hook)
Shine bright like a diamond (x4)

(Verse)
What a wonderful fuckin life, lookin to get some closure
Opposite of these fuck niggas lookin to get exposure
Haters in violation, trust nothing of what they showed ya
Battle until it's over, Trae goin up like a soldier
Tell em I've been in the back, sick of muthafuckas lookin over this life of mine
My Thompson it's time to shine til the brick that they going blind
I've done been through so much, my testimony stay fresh, I load up I got the hood
I hope the rest get hold up, get this money til the rest get fold up, I gotta win
Tryna close the door but now I got em in
I done missed my shot, been shot again
My time to go, I ain't stopping again
Know the road is rough but I'mma hop in
So many can get it and lose it
Not me, you gon know when I choose it
You can tell I'm determined to get it and if I want it ain't no way to refuse it
I told my grandfather I shine through, I'm just like a diamond
Even though it's dark I told em spark the light and you can find em
For those who are trapped in shit, homie I'm right here to remind em
The Truth focused on moving forward like you can't rewind

(Hook)
Shine bright like a diamond (x6)

(Verse)
King of the streets, 13 plus, tell em I've been that
Even though they left me missin tell them bitch niggas I've been back
I'm stuntin like I was diamond deep in the dirt but now I done rose up
You can close yo eyes if you want but in my prison shit get froze up
Position til I chose up, right after that go all in
Yet they gon get this work, if they don't want it tell them call in
Nigga I'm a pulse, you out here stressing, tryin to work for hire
You wanna be me, no list of real, what the fuck it require?
Yeah, I shine bright like a diamond
I was promised to see the top and got to climbing
On my way
Ain't no less than being great like Mohamed we'll speak in 3
All I know is handle business, if nothing I'm in the way
And I'd take a team but niggas done stopped this light of mine, I'm like lights in Manhattan
I'm in the game to make the plays, now they callin me Madden
And that's enough to make niggas bitter
But I don't give a fuck, the world is mine and I'm gon get er
For real nigga

(Hook)
Shine bright like a diamond (x7)
