Diamond in The Rough - Social Distortion

Well, I've been up, yeah
And I've been down
Been kicked around, yeah
This god-forsaken town
So many faults, so little time
I've gotta find my piece of mind
Peace of mind

I was looking for something
Anything at all
Something to believe in
Spray-painted on the walls
I've made mistakes, yeah
I've paid for them too
What's a poor boy supposed to do

Then she said yea, yea
"You're like a diamond in the rough
You're dirty and you're damaged
All you need's 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 got a reason to live another day
A discarded treasure, they all passed on by
And I can understand the reasons why

Then she said yea, yea
"You're like a diamond in the rough
You're dirty and you're damaged
All you need's 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"
[x2]

Yea, yea, diamond in the rough
Yea, yea, gonna light the stars above
Yea, yea, all you need's a little love
You'll be there in the morning
When the going? gets tough
Diamond in the rough now, yea, yea
Who'll light the stars above, yea, yea
All you need's a little love now, yea, yea
