lyricsTo the dirty mean streets I was called when I was very young
But I see beauty in the desolation
Wild flowers greet my eyes with colour
As I wait for you by the old canal

Heaven sparkles in the muddy water shining in my eye
Migrant birds will land here from great distant shores
To breed again by the old abandoned mill
Hope lives here still

I remember when I felt so low
I stared at the water and I heard it call
But hear my ideology
That strength is born of adversity

Like diamonds in the dirt
We're like diamonds in the dirt

And when you're approaching senses keen and troubled waters stir
I sense momentum in your movements here
Green things growing from the walls
Of abandoned mills as I wait here still

I remember when I felt so low
I stared at the water and I heard it call out

Diamonds in the dirt
We're like diamonds in dirt
We are diamonds in dirt
And there's gold beneath the earth
