Lyrics

[Verse 1]

When I find myself awake

I'll put my thoughts down on the page

Half-asleep, I'll make a list

Then read back all my greatest hits

Should meditate, should work out more

Should read until my brain gets sore

Meet someone, go far away

Try being socially less strange

[Chorus]

That's how a diamond grows, yeah

Give yourself the right chance over time

Don't believe them if they try to sell you something quicker, yeah

[Verse 2]

I cut at least half of my friends

But no one noticed or mentioned

I thought at last I'd breathe easy

But then I thought a lot of things

Hey, new year, hey, new you

You left so much low-hanging fruit

You're in the ring for the title fight

With only montage training time

[Chorus]

That's how a diamond grows, yeah

Give yourself the right chance over time

Don't believe them if they try to sell you something quicker, yeah

That's how a diamond grows, yeah

Reach as far as you can, then hold tight

Don't believe them if they try to tell you something different, yeah


[Bridge]

They say a diamond grows with time

I believe it 'cause I've seen it with my eyes

Well, there's a guaranteed parade of broken promises

Did you expect some kind of miracle?

You do what you can do, that's all, all, all

[Chorus]

That's how a diamond grows, yeah

Give yourself the right chance over time

Don't believe them if they try to sell you something quicker, yeah

That's how a diamond grows with time

Don't believe them if they try to tell you something different
