Diamonds on the inside
Ben Harper

I knew a girl
Her name was truth
She was a horrible liar
She couldn't spend one day alone
But she couldn't be satisfied
When you have everything
You have everything to lose
She made herself a bed of nails
And she's planning on putting it to use

CHORUS : But she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside (x2) Diamonds

A candle throws its light into the darkness
In a nasty world so shines a good deed
Make sure the fortune that you seek
Is the fortune that you need
Tell me why the first to ask
Is the last to give every time
What you say and do not mean
Follows you close behind

CHORUS : She had diamonds on the inside (x2)
She wore diamonds on the inside
Diamonds (x2)

SOLO

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

CHORUS : She had diamonds on the inside (x2)
She wore diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds
Oh diamonds
She had diamonds
She wore diamonds, Diamonds
