Lyrics

Well I’ve been up yea and I’ve been down
Been kicked around yea, this God forsaken town
So many faults, so little time
I’ve got to find my peace of mind…
Peace of mind

I was looking for something, anything at all
Something to believe in, spray-painted on the walls
Well I’ve made mistakes yea; I paid for them too
What’s a poor boy supposed to do?

Chorus:
Then she said yea, yea
“You’re like a diamond in the rough
You’re dirty and you’re damaged
All you need is a little love
But inside there’s a sparkle
That’ll light the stars above
And you’ll be there in the morning
When the going… gets tough”

There was a time when, I could not say
I gotta reason to live another day
A discarded treasure, they all passed on by
And I can understand the reasons why

Repeat Chorus
