Diamonds And Monsters

This song is by Tarsha Vega and appears on the album Diamonds and Monsters (2000).

First things first, ay yo she didn't fit in
She knew that she was different and she couldn't pretend
That she hadn't been abused by some messed up dudes
When her daddy said goodbye, step-daddy moved in

Unwanted hands under the sheets up in the sleepless nights
Where she's afraid to dim the lights and monsters creep in the night
And she keeps her mouth shut 'cause no one would ever believe
Fifteen and petrified of her dreams, c'mon

Keep on healin' all the scars in your heart
You keep on realin' as they tear you apart
Don't let them take away your pride and dignity
'Cause scars will heal themselves eventually

Her mama got a drawer diamonds and pearls
Gettin' dusty like the Rhodes they call the fender
Now mama won't remember if they gone through November
Baby pockets up the rocks and she take on the world like
Rahzel be boxin' beats

Girl ya boxin' the streets
Ya sell the stones high as hell and lose the shoes from ya feet
Turn a trick not for treat, why did heaven deceive?
And every face look like a monster end the treachery, uh
You gotta

Keep on healin' all the scars in your heart
You keep on realin' as they tear you apart
Don't let them take away your pride and dignity
'Cause scars will heal themselves eventually

Na na na na na [unverified]

They put her in da juvenile facility
Where dey question da mental competency
No one there to pay the tab in 30 days she's free
Anutha Runaway who's prey up in the belly of the beast

Oh girl, time just can't erase
Oh girl, we find angels in the strangest place
In a hopeless space in a lifeless case
Ay yo, I see my life reflected in the lines on ya face

Ay
(Ay yo)
Ay yo
And it's a waste

Keep on healin' all the scars in your heart
You keep on realin' as they tear you apart
Don't let them take away your pride and dignity
'Cause scars will heal themselves eventually

Somewhere beyond the sky you and I
Live with diamonds and monsters
Without a care in the world
Somewhere beyond the sky you and I
Live with diamonds and monsters, yeah, yeah
