[Intro]
A5 E5 B5 D5 Dsus D Dsus2
A5 E5 B5 D5 Dsus D Dsus2
 
 
[Verse 1]
A5      E5           B5                D5     Dsus D Dsus2 A5
When I find myself awake, I'll put my thoughts down on the page
        E5               B5                   D5 Dsus D Dsus2 A5
Half-asleep, I'll make a list, then read back all my greatest hits
           E5                    B5                   D5 Dsus D Dsus2  A5
Should meditate, should work out more, should read until my brain gets sore
         E5            B5            D5   Dsus D Dsus2
Meet someone, go far away, try being socially less strange

[Chorus]
A5            E5
That's how a diamond grows, yeah
B5                D5                A5
Give yourself the right chance over time
         E5                B5               D5
Don't believe them if they try to sell you something quicker, yeah
 
 
[Verse 2]
A5        E5               B5                 D5 Dsus D Dsus2       A5
I cut at least half of my friends but no one noticed or         mentioned
              E5                B5              D5 Dsus D Dsus2    A5
I thought at last I'd breathe easy but then I thought a lot of   things
          E5             B5              D5 Dsus D Dsus2   A5
Hey, new year, hey, new you, you left so much low-hanging fruit
               E5                 B5             D5 Dsus D Dsus2
You're in the ring for the title fight with only montage training time

G|-----------------| x2

That's how a diamond grows, yeah
B5                D5                A5
Give yourself the right chance over time
         E5                B5               D5
Don't believe them if they try to sell you something quicker, yeah
A5            E5
That's how a diamond grows, yeah
B5               D5                A5
Reach as far as you can, then hold tight
         E5                B5               D5
Don't believe them if they try to tell you something different, yeah
 
 
[Bridge]
G5          D5                C5
They say a diamond grows with time
              G5              D5         C5
I believe it 'cause I've seen it with my eyes
                G5            D5            C5
Well, there's a guaranteed parade of broken promises
                             G5
Did you expect some kind of miracle?
             D5                C5   C5    C5
You do what you can do, that's all, all, all
 
 
[Chorus]
A5            E5
That's how a diamond grows, yeah
B5                D5                A5
Give yourself the right chance over time
         E5                B5               D5
Don't believe them if they try to sell you something quicker, yeah
A5            E5                 B5       D5
That's how a diamond grows, with time
A5       E5                B5               D5
Don't believe them if they try to tell you something different
