"Rough Diamonds" as written by and Justin Burford....
Oh no look at the way they start to rot
I know I've been away too long to ask

Caught in a sea of rough diamonds
If that's not enough
Imagining if you were not here
This wicked spell of traveling's
Just a mystery unraveling
I'm holding on to when you are here

And now baby where are you
So much I wanted to say
When I get home
Well I can love you I miss you
Honestly I can't resist you
No I'm coming home

Wait and I'll stick around
Till I have found my feet on the ground
I'm holding to when you are here
There's a ghost I'm carrying
Around like mindless worrying
There's a song I want you to hear

'cause baby where are you
So much I wanted to say
When I get home
Well I can love you I miss you
Oh honestly I can't resist you
No I'm coming home

Oh no look at the way they start to rot
I know I've been away too long to ask

Oh baby where are you
So many things I've got to say
When I get home
Well I can love you I miss you
Oh honestly I can't resist you
No I'm coming home

La la la la la la

Caught in a sea of rough diamonds
If that's not enough
Imagining if you were not here

    Rough Diamonds

    Oh no, look at the way they start to act
    I know, I've been away to long to ask

    Caught in a sea of rough,
    Diamonds if that's not enough,
    Imagine me if you were not here
    This wicked spell of travelling,
    Just a mystery unravelling,
    I'm holding on to when you are here

    And now baby, where are you?
    Theres so much I wanted to say,
    When I get home
    Like I love you, I miss you,
    Honestly I can't resist you,
    No, I'm coming home

    Wait and I'll stick around,
    Till I have found my feet on the ground,
    I'm half of me when you are not here
    There's a ghost I'm carrying,
    Around like memories marrying,
    There's a song I want you to hear

    Cause baby, where are you?
    There's so much I wanted to say,
    When I get home
    Like I love you, I miss you,
    Honestly I can't resist you,
    No, I'm coming home

    Oh no, look at the way they start to act

    Oh my baby, where are you?
    There's so many things I've got to say,
    When I get home
    Like I love you, I miss you yeah,
    Honestly I can't resist you,
    No, I'm coming home

    Na Na, Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na (repeat)

    Caught in a sea of rough,
    Diamonds if that's not enough,
    Imagine me if you were not here

    General CommentAwesome song, one of the songs that got me liking end of fashion. about being apart from the one that you love, most likely when on tour.
