I've searched the world over all of my life
To make my love shine
But I came up with nothing
Deeper and deeper inside
And all of the treasures
Was like finding a diamond

And women that sparkle shiny and cold
They shimmer like tinsel
But they never were quite so bright
As all of the treasures
It's like finding a diamond

And you were a rock in the dust
When you were you polished by love
And when I found you
I found me a diamond
