Lyrics for Diamonds by Rihanna:

Intro
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Verse 1
Find light in the beautiful sea
I choose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We're like diamonds in the sky
You're a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I'm alive
We're like diamonds in the sky

Pre-Chorus
I knew that we'd become one right away
Oh, right away
At first sight, I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

Chorus
So shine bright, tonight
You and I
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye
So alive
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky

Post-Chorus
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shinin' bright like a diamond
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shinin' bright like a diamond
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky

Verse 2
Palms rise to the universe
As we moonshine and molly
Feel the warmth, we'll never die
We're like diamonds in the sky
You're a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I'm alive
We're like diamonds in the sky

Pre-Chorus
At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

Chorus
So shine bright, tonight
You and I
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye
So alive
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky

Post-Chorus
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shinin' bright like a diamond
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shinin' bright like a diamond
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky

Bridge
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Chorus
So shine bright, tonight
You and I
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye
So alive
We're beautiful, like diamonds in the sky

Outro
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond
Oh-oh, yeah
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond (Woah)
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Song Facts

“Diamonds” was released as the lead single from Rihanna’s seventh studio album, Unapologetic. It became her twelfth number-one in the US.

The song was written by Sia, who wrote the chart topping hit in just 14 minutes.

We’re sitting there trying to make records, and we finally just said, ‘Let’s just do something we like. Let’s make a hip-hop record with some really cool chords on it… It didn’t sound Rihanna at all. We were more thinking of making a record that sounds like Kanye. Let’s make a record with a dope beat. So we did. Then Sia heard the track and instantly gravitated towards it. We weren’t even thinking of putting a pop song on it, but she wrote this amazing song.“
––Benny Blanco (Producer)

I literally punched him in the arm. I thought Benny was playing a trick on me, [Rihanna] could’ve done it her own way, but I think she really genuinely liked the way it was.“
––Sia
