about

Diamonds on the Street turns wounded histories into stories of hope.

We collaborate with individuals and communities in need of hope by co-creating music, stories and drama so that they are healed and empowered to be a voice of hope to others.

We shine a spotlight on the intangible things that matter such as love, loss, joy, sorrow, brokenness and hope.

Through life’s adversities, we come face-to-face with our weaknesses and in the process, we find strength to overcome our challenges. It’s the way diamonds are made – put into high-temperature, high-pressure conditions just before the carbon starts to shine.

That’s the story all of us have. Born from ashes and refined by fire, we live to shine a light.

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” – Nelson Mandela

Track Name: There'll Be Spring
O barren lady can't you see
Your spring is coming, time to sing
Cast off the ache of pain, the reproach and the shame
Let your past be your past

You think you'll never see the sun
You're learning how to limp not run
You've got to learn to live
Don't forget who you are
You will live to go far

Chorus:
Lift your eyes, lift your eyes
There's a garden of spring
You can dance, you can sing
There'll be spring!
Wipe away all your tears
And let goodness take your hand
Come on dance, come on sing
There'll be spring!

What if you never reach your dreams
Why hold on to a hope so far
It's more the journey that gives life to your dreams
It takes belief, just believe

Springtime is coming

Flowers are blooming in the cool breeze
Pink, lavender and yellow
Spring is a lover's kiss on his lover's cheek
It’s my favourite season
Track Name: S-M-I-L-E
S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

You're my guide and my pillar
My listening ear, my everything
You have never failed to encourage me and brighten up my day
Your care, concern and laughter make me S-M-I-L-E
If you only knew how much you mean to me

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

I wanna thank you for being my guardian angel
Never forsaking, always forgiving and never giving up on me
Gratitude is remembering all the things that you have done for me
I wanna keep you in my mind forevermore

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

Thank you for being so outstanding
In all that you do
Thank you for persevering
When no one sees what you do
You've got a heart of gold
And in case you didn't know
It's necessary that I spell it for you

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me
Track Name: Love Is
Life is much harder than we think
Emptiness, feeling lost
Just some reasons to give up

But through all my tears and sleepless nights, you have shown me that love makes me strong

Love is when you are always there for me
Riding through the storms and the seas
Love is giving me your time and your all
Catching me whenever I fall
Yes I hope our love will never die
Love is standing strong come rain or shine

We’ve all had mistakes and regrets
All the scars, memories that we try to forget

I can never turn back time for us, but I hope that love will see us through

Love is when you are always there for me
Riding through the storms and the seas
Love is giving me your time and your all
Catching me whenever I fall

Love is when you are always there for me
Riding through the storms and the seas
Love is giving me your time and your all
Catching me whenever I fall
Yes I hope our love will never die
Love is standing strong come rain or shine
Track Name: Ride On
She was a regular girl next door
Chasing seconds that ticked on the wall
Building sandcastles of dreams

One day, she had a sudden knock on her door
The stranger came and started a war
Drowning sandcastles within

All her crowns of yesterday
Broke and flew away
As the dawn broke and senses woke
These words sang in her head

Life is like a giant playground,
It’s a climb up or a ride down the slide
Your wind give me wings to fly and ride

Enter pain, he crept by to visit her fall
Stripped her pride and dug up a knoll
Of loneliness and heartache

Then came hope, he came by and planted a trace
In her mind and birthed daily grace
Even when she couldn’t see

All her crowns of yesterday
Broke and flew away
As the dawn broke and senses woke
These words sang in her head

Life is like a giant playground
It’s a climb up or a ride down the slide
Your wind gives me wings to fly
The bully’s gone now, he was chased out
by a bigger and stronger Hero
who picked me up from the dusty sand
It’s no myth that we can stand
after the fall and ride on

Standing at the edge of unknown
Looking for a light
Waiting for a sign from above
To cross over and take flight

Life is like a giant playground
It’s a climb up or a ride down the slide
Your wind gives me wings to fly
The bully’s gone now, he was chased out
by a bigger and stronger Hero
who picked me up from the dusty sand
It’s no myth that we can stand
after the fall and ride on
Track Name: Beautiful Sight
I am looking at my future
From the ending point I see
Trees have blossomed, there are grapes on the vine
And the fields have come alive

Everything that once was barren, all restored and now abundant
From the ending point I see
A beautiful, beautiful, beautiful sight

Look and see, look and see at the birds in the air
None of them will fall outside Your care
I believe, I believe I am worth much more
That You only have good things in store
I'll be brave, I'll be brave when the darkness surrounds
Yes I know that a new day will come
I am never alone, one day I'll see
That all will be beautiful

Many times, my future seems to take
Such a long time to come
And my hope fades, oh my heart aches
Tomorrow when will you, when will you come?
Tomorrow when will you, when will you come?

I, I will wait patiently
It won't be delayed, it won't be delayed
I, I will wait hopefully
It'll surely take place, it'll surely take place

A new day awaits, a new day awaits
Yeah my future awakes
So I won't give up on hope

I won't give up

Everything that once was barren, all restored and now abundant
From the ending point I see
A beautiful, beautiful, beautiful sight
