Ooh, woah, oh, woah, nah, nah
Long time, long time

Took a long time, but I’m here (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Now I’m shinin’, chandelier (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I was a dirty diamond in the rough (yeah, yeah, yeah)
But now I’m polished, see me clear
And I ain’t never give up (wow, nah)
Stay down ’til you come up (stay down ’til you come up)
Woah, nah, woah, woah

Started pressure, then I applied (then I applied)
I be lyin’ if I say the limit it is sky
You know they hate everything I do, tell ’em I try (tell ’em I try)
They got the TV, see the hate, we on the rush (woah, ah)
Get it out the mud, feel different when you grew up with no luck
Came from the bottom, straight to the top
I swear they know me (swear they know)
Came in the game, ain’t have a thing, feel like they owe me
Outside, Winter in the cold
Know they talk behind my back, but I ain’t trippin’, I won’t fold
Been a long time comin’, it’s weighin’ heavy on my soul
Know they’ll cross me in a minute, but I’m prepared for the road

Took a long time, but I’m here (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Now I’m shinin’, chandelier (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I was a dirty diamond in the rough (yeah, yeah, yeah)
But now I’m polished, see me clear
And I ain’t never give up (wow, nah)
Stay down ’til you come up (stay down ’til you come up)
Woah, nah, woah, woah

They hate the fact they gotta see me
‘Cause I’m on flat screens and poor people TV
I feed my dawgs and my miss but they ain’t needy
Five hundred thousand dollar bills on the ceiling
My shawty natural with Malaysian hair
The penthouse suite, I just go bath in there
I got mansions and exotic bitches in the livin’ room
Inside and outside pool, it’s okay to drool (let’s go)
You look like a fool tryna tie your two’s
Ain’t talkin’ Yeezy’s, but the Lambo’ got some new shoes
I trip you up with red bottom, oh
Before I ever tried, I dead the problems I don’t gotta say this

Took a long time, but I’m here
Now I’m shinin’, chandelier
I was a dirty diamond in the rough
But now I’m polished, see me clear
And I ain’t never give up (wow, nah)
Stay down ’til you come up (stay down ’til you come up)
Woah, nah, woah, woah

Hit hard, and move silent, yeah
