my lyricsbox
As a little girl I came down to the water
With a little stone in my hand
It would shimmer and sing
And we knew everything
As a little girl I came down

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

You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough

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

You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

Snakes in the grass got to step on the gas
Snakes in the grass got to 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, everything
In my dreams I go down, I go down

You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
And I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

And you're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I am holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

Snakes in the grass got to step on the gas
Snakes in the grass got to step on the gas
Snakes in the grass got to step on the gas
