Lyrics for Diamonds by Sam Smith:

Intro
Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds
Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds
Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds
Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds

Verse 1
Have it all, rip our memories off the wall
All the special things I bought
They mean nothing to me anymore
But to you, they were everything we were
They meant more than every word
Now I know just what you love me for, mm

Pre-Chorus
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 hеart's already been sold
Show you how little I care
How littlе I care, how little I care

Chorus
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't breathe (Mmm)
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you
(Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)

Verse 2
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)

Pre-Chorus
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

Chorus
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't breathe (Mmm)
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you
(Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)

Refrain
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Always knew, my diamonds leave with you
(Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Always knew (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)

Bridge
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't breathe
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you, oh-whoa

Chorus
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 (So cruel)
My diamonds leave with you (Mmm)
Material love won't fool me (Mmm)
When you're not here, I can't breathe (Mmm)
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you
(Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)

Outro
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Always knew, my diamonds leave with you
(Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Woah-oh (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
Always knew my diamonds leave with you

Song Facts

“Diamonds” is the second official single by English singer Sam Smith, taken from their upcoming third studio album, Love Goes. The upbeat song, follows July 2020’s first single “My Oasis” with Burna Boy

Along with the release of the song, Smith took to social media to announce the new release date of their third studio album, as well as the new cover art, track-list, and cover art.

Sam wrote:

The last two years have been the most experimental time of my life, personally but also musically. Every time I went into the studio I promised myself I would shoot for the stars and have no limitations.

“Diamonds” is a fast-tempo electro-pop production with a strong beat, in minor key, and marks a new departure in style for Sam.

Rolling Stone magazine reported that “Sam is reborn — three minutes and 34 seconds of catharsis. Smith sings of a lying love who cared more about the star’s fame and material goods than their heart.” It adds that the song is a “dance-floor anthem … a catchy bass line comes in just in time for the chorus. … The song’s rhythm section is joined by a funky guitar riff that makes the listener want to body-roll their blues away.”

Billboard Magazine described the song as a “heartbreaking track, juxtaposed onto a deliciously synth-y beat.”
