Just to let ya know girl
I had to let ya go girl
Now my world has all the diamonds
Now my world has all the pearls.
But don’t be fooled girl
It’s not Hollywood lights
You have to dig deep for diamonds
You have to weep, scrape, claw, and fight.
And pearls don’t just float to the top
You have to dive down to the ocean floor
You have to go where the pressure hurts
Where chests implode and tears slowly pour.
So when you think of me, think of a child
Who hangs on to dreams when mom’s not there
Who hurts so badly in hopes she’ll return
Who craves the peace of answered prayers.
