Liner Notes: 

The song prompt on the FB Song Skirmish group was "Diamond" and I thought of my daughter who is muddling her way through tweenage-hood and can't can't see how amazing she is. This song is for her. She's my diamond.

Lyrics: 

Diamond
Music and Lyrics (c) 2019 Ariana Evans

V1
I see you pushing trying to figure out just who you are
Head in the clouds, eyes always searching for that second star
It’s wonderful, it’s crazy, It’s beautiful, it’s so hard.

Chorus
Give it time, Give it time. Baby you are doing just fine
Give it time, Give it time. You are under pressure now
But you’re gonna shine

V2
The world has never known anyone like you, not in a million years
You’ve got steel in your soul and joy in your heart, I love to see you face down your fear
It’s wonderful, it’s crazy, It’s beautiful, it’s so hard.

Chorus
Give it time, Give it time. Baby you are doing just fine
Give it time, Give it time. You are under pressure now
But you’re gonna shine

Bridge
Baby girl, Nobody has it all figured out
That’s the secret. Everyone has their doubts
We are all doing the best we can
Every child, every woman and man

Chorus
Give it time, Give it time. Baby you are doing just fine
Give it time, Give it time. You are under pressure now
But you’re gonna shine

Nice one. Lovely build up to lift off around 1.30. Very enjoyable.

The chorus is uplifting and reaffirming. I hope your daughter can appreciate how true it this is if she hasn't already. Your voice is incredibly soulful and sincere. I'm gonna listen to this one a few more times.

Great use of the diamond theme -- and I hope your daughter loves this song because it's awesome. I have a daughter in the tweens as well and it's a hard time for them!!

Just loving the melody, especially when you jump into the higher register.

That second chorus...don't even gotta say anything...
Beautiful song and sentiment. I will neither confirm nor deny that I went all mushy with this one.
I've already expressed my admiration for your singing, so...yeah lol
I love what this is about and that its for your daughter during one of the hardest periods of growing up.

Great twist on the prompt. Sharing of wisdom is an important thing. A very complete song and wonderfully sung. Good work.

i love how you have used the qualities of diamonds in such clever ways, like time, pressure, shine etc without actually stating the diamond title directly. great strong anthem, you have an amazing voice too. and a skirmish? wow! very nice work

This is so good. I love your voice. Great song, strong message. I wish I'd listened when they told me this 30 odd years ago.
