Diamonds On The Inside

This song is by Ben Harper and appears on the album Diamonds on the Inside (2003).

I knew a girl
Her name was truth
She was a horrible liar.

She couldn't spend one day long
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 plannin' on puttin' it to use.

'Cause she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

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

So tell me why, the first to ask, is the last to give, every time
What you say and do not mean
Follow too close behind

'Cause she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

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

But she had diamonds on the inside
'Cause she had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds
Oh diamonds
She had diamonds
She wore diamonds
Diamonds
