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

In a little while I got steeped in authority
Heaven only knows what when wrong

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

Ever 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 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

Snake's 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
As a little girl I came 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
