• Manafest - Diamonds (feat. Trevor McNevan) Lyrics

    From the album The Moment

    CAUSE I KNOW, DIAMONDS AREN'T THE ONLY THING, THE SHINE
    AND I KNOW, LOVE CAN MAKE THE DARKNESS SING

    I THROW MYSELF OUT MY OWN HOUSE
    COULDN'T STOP MYSELF SO I JUST WALKED OUT

    HUH

    ALMOST DID IT AGAIN SPOKE TOO SOON
    CALLED A COUPLE OF FRIENDS
    BLOOD BOILED OVER I'LL BE COOL IN A MINUTE
    KICK A FEW THINGS THAT'S ENOUGH ARE YOU FINISHED

    HEART IN HAND CALM AS I WALK IN THE DOOR
    HOLD MY BREATH WHEN I LET OUT A ROAR
    EVEN GOOD MEN NEED A LITTLE GRACE
    PUT THE WORLD DOWN & I PICKUP FAITH

    ONLY SCARED BOYS TRY TO SAVE FACE
    PRIDE IN THE MOUTH ITS A BITTER TASTE
    SPIT IT OUT DON'T WANT IT
    DON'T NEED IT PUT IT DOWN AND I JUST LEAVE IT

    BUT I KEEP HEARING IT TALK TO ME
    KNOWS WHAT I'M THINKING LIKE IT'S ON TO ME
    HOLD MY BREATH WHEN IT'S HARD TO BREATHE

    CAUSE I KNOW, DIAMONDS AREN'T THE ONLY THING, THAT SHINE,
    AND I KNOW, THAT LOVE CAN MAKE THE DARKNESS SING
    AND I KNOW, DIAMONDS AREN'T THE ONLY THING, THAT SHINE
    AND I KNOW, THAT LOVE CAN MAKE THE DARKNESS SING

    I NEED A STRONG TOWER WILL POWER, NO COWARD
    TAKE BACK THE FLOWERS SELL THE CASKET
    MY SOULS ESTABLISHED FOUND A PASSAGE
    STRIKE THE MATCHES LIGHT MY BLACK

    AND WHITE THE SKY WIPE MY FEARS
    REDEEM THE TIME
    THE BATHROOM MIRROR I'M EYE TO EYE
    LOOK INSIDE MY SOUL AND TRY

    TO TALK TO THE GUY IF HE'S STILL ALIVE
    PINCH MYSELF TRY NOT TO CRY
    WALKING BY THE SEA OF A GREAT DIVIDE
    LEFT MY PRINT I STILL SURVIVED

    IS THIS THE ONE THE TIME IS NOW
    MY MOMENT JUMP AND LEAVE THE CROWD
    WALKING WITH A KING I'M TALL AND PROUD
    STANDING RE-BORN GOT THE VICTORS CROWN

    CAUSE I KNOW, DIAMONDS AREN'T THE ONLY THING, THAT SHINE,
    AND I KNOW, THAT LOVE CAN MAKE THE DARKNESS SING
    AND I KNOW, DIAMONDS AREN'T THE ONLY THING, THAT SHINE
    AND I KNOW, THAT LOVE CAN MAKE THE DARKNESS SING

    I NO LONGER HAVE TO WAIT, FOR THE SPARK THAT COVERS ME,
    IT'S A STAND FOR ME TO TAKE, IT'S NOT A WAND THAT WE CAN WAVE

    IT'S THE FAITH LIKE A CHILD THAT COUNTS WHEN I,
    TRY TO DO WHAT I THINK I FEEL IS RIGHT,
    BUT IT'S NEVER BEEN SOMETHING I CONTROLLED
    IT'S SO HARD TO COMMIT WHEN I DON'T KNOW
