THE DIAMOND INSIDE
(G. CHAMBERS)

VERSE
SHE STRUTS LIKE ALWAYS READY TO SING
SHE WANTS TO GET MARRIED BUT SHE AIN’T GOT NO RING
SHE’S LOOKING FOR A HUSBAND WHO’S A SO AND SO
AIN’T GOT NO RELIGION AND HER SPIRITS ARE LOW
WEARS THE LATEST FASHIONS, SHE’S A SLAVE TO HER CLOTHES (but never)
SHE FOLLOWS ALL HER PASSIONS BUT SHE’S NEVER IN LOVE
BUYS HER DRESSES IN PARIS AND HER LEATHER IN SPAIN
SHE’S A GOD-GIVEN BEAUTY BUT SHE’S GOING IN INSANE

CHORUS
BUT I KNOW, I KNOW WHY, WHY HER CAGED BIRD INSIDE WILL NOT SING
SHE WOULD FLY, BUT HER ANGEL INSIDE BROKE IT’S WINGS
I KNOW WHY, WHY SHE’S BURDENED BY MATERIAL THINGS
BUT SHE WILL SHINE WHEN I SHOW HER THE DIAMOND INSIDE

VERSE
SHE’S CRYING ON THE INSIDE BUT SHE SMILES FOR THE CROWD
SHE BURIES HER EMOTIONS, SHE WON’T LET THEM OUT
SHE’S THE LIFE OF THE PARTY BUT SHE’S JUST SO VAIN
SHE’D NEVER ADMIT THAT SHE’S IN SO MUCH PAIN

CHORUS

BRIDGE
SHE THINKS BEING SHREWD WILL EARN HER SUCCESS
BUT A LIFE DIGGING GOLD BEARS NO HAPPINESS
SHE’S MASTERED THE ART OF GETTING MORE FOR LESS
BUT WHAT SHE NEEDS IS TO BELIEVE IN HERSELF
I KNOW WHY

CHORUS
