We, Diamonds

New breed
Stop calling me ambitious when I dream farther than Curry's three point range
It's not a compliment when you doubt my success in a polite way
I'm used to being the underdog 'cause black girls who have minds and a cause are stifled with leashes and clichés
But we new breeds
We run over insults and fuck niggas like Bobby Boucher
We new breeds
We coast over doubts like Tony Hawk in the prime of his X Games

I had to be the one to learn the shit the hard way
Pick up the pieces even though I wasn't the one to blame
No excuses 'cause it only made up my game
Grind up, gotta keep my grind up
I wasn't chasing nothing that was never mine to take
Rockin' the best, dressed head to toe in my mistakes
I got that type of shit, that type of shit don't ever fade
Shine up, gotta keep my shine up

So won't you put that pressure on me?
'Cause then you'll see the best in me

Darling, you ain't notice
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds
And even though we're broken
That don't mean we ain't diamonds
I know that we ain't polished
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds
We rough around the edges
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds

What I got up in my pocket don't come easily
I had to drop it off gwaf it ain't pleasing me
Never play with people that's prepared to cheat on me
Eyes up, got to keep your eyes up
I wake up every morning and I'm feeling hella free
Paid my dues so I can do this shit the way I please
I've been on my grind, I've been waiting patiently
Hustle up, gotta keep your hustle up

So won't you put that pressure on me?
'Cause then you'll see the best in me

Darling, you ain't notice
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds (That don't mean we)
And even though we're broken
That don't mean we ain't diamonds (We)
I know that we ain't polished
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds (That don't mean)
We rough around the edges
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds

We were made under the weight of mountains
So we can take whatever you throw at us

Darling, you ain't notice
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds
And even though we're broken
That don't mean we ain't diamonds
I know that we ain't polished
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds
We rough around the edges
But that don't mean we ain't diamonds (No, no, no, no, no, no)
