Smith sings about a lying lover who cared more for the star’s fame and material goods than for his heart. “Having it all, ripping our memories off the wall, all the special things I bought,” they coo in the first verse. “They don’t mean anything to me anymore.” A series of rhythmic snapshots kick off the pre-chorus, and the listener begins to realize that what could have been a signature ballad is actually a dance floor hymn. Smith tells the mystery man from their past to go ahead and take their money, insisting that they show how little they care now. A catchy bass line arrives just in time for the chorus. By the time the second verse rolls around, the song’s confident rhythm section is joined by a funky guitar riff that makes the listener want to roll his blues with his body.

Diamonds – 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 nothin’ 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 (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 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 breathe (Mmm)
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you (Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds, diamonds)

[Post-Chorus]
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)
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 breathe
Think I always knew
My diamonds leave with you, oh

[Chorus]
You’re never gonna hear my heart break (Mmm)
Never gonna move in dark ways (Mmm, oh)
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)

[Post-Chorus]
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)
Always knew
My diamonds leave with you
