Here Are the Lyrics to Sam Smith’s ‘Diamonds’

Sam Smith shines like “Diamonds” on the latest single from their third studio album, Love Goes.

In an interview with Apple Music about Love Goes, the English singer-songwriter retold the story they imagined to go along with the song. “When I wrote ‘Diamonds’ — in 2019 in London — I was in the studio and I was pretending to be a really rich woman whose husband had left her and taken all her things. She’s just in this wedding dress in the middle of a huge mansion. Think Moira Rose of Schitt’s Creek,” Smith explained. “This wasn’t even going to be on the album, but I just kept returning to it in quarantine. The moment I knew this song was something was when I played it to my mum and she freaked out. I call it a sexy exorcism.”

(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 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)

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

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

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

(Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
(Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)
