    Lyrics

    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
    ...
