Diamond In The Rough

This song is by Jennifer Knapp and appears on the album Lay It Down (2000).

This song is a cover of "Diamond in the Rough" by Shawn Colvin.
As a little girl I came down to the water
With a little stone in my hand
And it would shimmer and sing
And I knew everything
As a little girl I came down

In a little while I got steeped in authority
Heaven only knows what went wrong
When there was nothing so cruel
Than to bury that jewel
When it was mine all along
And I'm gonna find it

You're shining, I can see you
You're smiling, that's enough well
I'm holding onto you like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

Every now and then I can see
That I am 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 and now I'm gonna find it

You're shining, I can see you
You're smiling, that's enough well
I'm holding onto you like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

Snakes in the grass
Better step on the gas
Snakes in the grass
Better step on the gas

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, I go down

You're shining, I can see you
You're smiling, that's enough well
I'm holding onto you like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough
