Story Behind the Song

Diamonds are not always a girl's best friend. Some are rather rough around the edges.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Really powerful presentation both musically and vocally. Very professional sounding production and arrangement. Sounds every bit as good as just about anything out there today.

    - MGB

I love the lead vocals and the backing vocals as well - very tight sounding drums and bass guitar. Sounds a little like Abba!

Lyrics

DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
(Simon Finn)

I'd made that journey many times
I knew by heart the danger signs
Took a little chance on a stranger
I'd been hurt before but I'd survived

You soon became a precious stone
You told me you were mine to own
Didn't have the strength to resist you
'Cause it was different when I kissed you
I knew part of me had died
I went in open-eyed 

You were a
Diamond in the rough
Brilliant and tough
Diamonds are forever
I was so in love
But you're not this girl's best friend
No use to pretend
Baby it was you
Who wasn't good enough
Diamond in the rough

It's hard to take the temperature
When love's declared on messenger
Blow a little kiss with an icon
To conceal the fact you slept with her

You pulled me up and tugged the strings
Sent me an image of a wedding ring
Didn't make it onto my finger
But hope would linger 'til
you shattered dreams into my fears
Now it's crystal clear

You were a
Diamond in the rough
Brilliant and tough
Diamonds are forever
I was so in love
But you're not this girl's best friend
No use to pretend
Baby it was you
Who wasn't good enough
Diamond in the rough

My friends say in time I will learn to forget you
But my only fear is I'll grow to regret you

You were a
Diamond in the rough
Brilliant and tough
Diamonds are forever
I was so in love
But you're not this girl's best friend
No use to pretend
Baby it was you
Who wasn't good enough
Diamond in the rough
