Sam Smith – Diamonds Lyrics

Diamonds By Sam Smith

(Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
(Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
(Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
(Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)

Have it all
Rip our memories off the wall
All the special things I bought
They mean nothing to me any more
But to you
They were everything we were
They meant more than every word
Now I know just what you love me for (Mmm-mmm)

Take all the money you want from me
Hope you become what you want to be
Show me how little you care
How little you care, how little you care
You dream of glitter and gold
My heart’s already been sold
Show you how little I care
How little I care, how little I care

My diamonds leave with you (Mmm)
You’re never gonna hear my heart break (Mmm)
Never gonna move in dark ways (Mmm)
Baby, you’re so cruel
My diamonds leave with you (Mmm)
Material love won’t fool me (Mmm)
When you’re not here I can breathe (Mmm)
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)

Shake it off
Shake the fear of feeling lost
Always me that pays the cost
I should never trust so easily
You lied to me
Lie-lied to me
Then left with my heart ’round your chest (Mmm-mmm)

Take all the money you want from me
Hope you become what you want to be
Show me how little you care
How little you care, how little you care
You dream of glitter and gold
My heart’s already been sold
Show you how little I care
How little I care, how little I care

My diamonds leave with you (Mmm)
You’re never gonna hear my heart break (Mmm)
Never gonna move in dark ways (Mmm)
Baby, you’re so cruel
My diamonds leave with you (Mmm)
Material love won’t fool me (Mmm)
When you’re not here I can breathe (Mmm)
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)

Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Always knew
My diamonds leave with you (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Always knew (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)

You’re never gonna hear my heart break
Never gonna move in dark ways
Baby, you’re so cruel
My diamonds leave with you
Material love won’t fool me
When you’re not here I can breathe
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you, oh- whoa

You’re never gonna hear my heart break (Mmm)
Never gonna move in dark ways (Mmm)
Baby, you’re so cruel (So cruel)
My diamonds leave with you (Mmm)
Material love won’t fool me (Mmm)
When you’re not here I can breathe (Mmm)
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)

Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Always knew
My diamonds leave with you (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Whoa-oh (Diamonds-diamonds-diamonds-diamonds)
Always knew
My diamonds leave with yo


“Diamonds,” it was co-written with Shellback and Oscar Holter; Shellback and Oscar Görres produced.
On “Diamonds,” Smith lets go of material love and a greedy lover who wanted them for the glitz and the glamour as opposed to who they really were. “My diamonds leave with you,” they sing as the electro-pop track builds up to a dance-y climax on the chorus
