Diamonds On the Inside
Ben Harper Lyrics


I knew a girl
Her name was truth
She was a horrible liar.

She couldn't spend one day alone
But she couldn't be satisfied.

When you have everything,
You have everything to lose.
She made herself
A bed of nails
And she's plannin' on puttin' it to use.

'Cause she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

A candle throws its light into the darkness
In a nasty world,so shines the good deed
Make sure the fortune, that you seek
Is the fortune you need.

So tell me why, the first to ask, is the last to give, every time
What you say and do not mean
Follow too close behind

'Cause she had diamonds on the inside
She had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
Diamonds

Like a soldier standing long under fire
Any change comes as a relief.
Let the giver's name remain unspoken
For she is just a generous thief.

But she had diamonds on the inside
'Cause she had diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds on the inside
She wore diamonds
Oh diamonds
She had diamonds
She wore diamonds
Diamonds

Esta letra diz muito e nos faz pensar e perceber que ainda existem pessoas muito sábias que descobriram como ser feliz com muito pouco na vida, sem a busca insana por riquezas a qualquer custo. Na verdade precisamos de muito pouco para sermos felizes, mas apenas da natureza e de uns aos outros vivendo em paz. Reginaldo.

This lirycs says a lot and makes us think and realize that there are really wise people who have found how to be happy with very little in life, out of the insane searching for wealth at any price. In fact we need almost nothing to be happy, but only nature and each other in peace. Reginaldo.
