Lyrics

I SEE MY FRIENDS LOST INSIDE THE BITTER SWEET OF DREAMS
AS THEY GROW OLDER
TRYING HARD TO KEEP THE FAITH THEIR LIVES HAVE CHANGED
A BABY CRIES TO HOLD HER
CATCHING UP TO ME THE MAN UPSTAIRS
CALLS OUT MY NAME
THE BREATH OF LIFE SEEMS CLOSE AT HAND
BUT OH SO FAR AWAY
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
WAITING FOR WAITING FOR THE SHINE
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
A SPARKLE THAT IN TIME ..WON?T FADE
UNTIL WE MAKE THE GRADE..JUST DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
HIDING IN THE WINGS I CATCH A FLEETING GLIMPSE
OF ACTORS ON A STAGE
LAUGHING AT THIS CASUALTY WHO?S WAITING
FOR A PART IN HIS OWN PLAY
IT?S SAID THAT GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE
WITH PATIENCE IN THE END
BUT IF PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE
HOW COME IT?S DONE ME IN
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
WAITING FOR WAITING FOR THE SHINE
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
A SPARKLE THAT IN TIME..WON?T FADE
UNTIL WE MAKE THE GRADE ..JUST DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
WE TAKE OUR TIME
TO SEE THE WORLD
AS THOUGH WE?RE VISIONARY
HOLDING ON TO
WHAT WE HOPE IS NOT
SO ORDINARY
