Song Description

After having a falling out with my best friend, I was feeling really down. I was thinking of a way to write about it when I was on Facebook and saw my friend had made her status "threw away a diamond" - I became inspired! We started writing about my friendship with my best friend using the metaphor of diamonds and how special they are. For instance, the bridge talks about how "everyone has a rhinestone, but I lost what I just can't find," which refers to how rare diamonds are, just like my best friend.

Lyrics

I LOST MY DIAMOND
Don McLeod, Ali Milner

(INTRO) Bb - Gm
OOOH OH
Bb - Gm - Bb - Gm - Bb - Gm - Eb - C
WISH I COULD HEAR THE MUSIC BOX PLAY
SEEMS LIKE I LOCKED IT AWAY
NO LONGER A BEAUTIFUL DAY... WHAT A SHAME

Bb - Gm - Bb - Gm - Bb - Gm - Eb - D7
STRING OF PEARLS WRAPPED ROUND MY NECK
GETTING TIGHT CAN'T CATCH MY BREATH
GAVE IT ALL IT I HAD NOTHING LEFT... WHAT A SHAME

(CHORUS) Eb - Gm - Eb - C
I LOST MY DIAMOND, I LOST MY DIAMOND
I LOST THE ONLY THING THAT GLITTERED
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT BUT GOLD
I LOST MY DIAMOND

(TAG) Bb - Gm
OOOH OH

NO NEED TO REPEAT WHAT NORMA JEAN SAID
NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D LET IT GET TO YOUR HEAD
YOUR BRILLIANT CUT HAS LEFT ME FOR DEAD... WHAT A SHAME

SO NOW WHAT'S A GIRL TO DO
TARNISHED CHARMS THOUGH TRIED AND TRUE
THESE OLD GEMS DON'T SHINE LIKE YOU... WHAT A SHAME

(CHORUS) Eb - Gm - Eb - C
I LOST MY DIAMOND, I LOST MY DIAMOND
I LOST THE ONLY THING THAT GLITTERED
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT BUT GOLD
I LOST MY DIAMOND

(BRIDGE) Bb - Gm - Eb - C - D7
PEARLS COME AND PEARLS GO
EVERY BODY'S GOT A RHINESTONE
ME, I WANT WHAT I JUST CAN'T FIND I

X2 (CHORUS) Eb - Gm - Eb - C
LOST MY DIAMOND, I LOST MY DIAMOND
I LOST THE ONLY THING THAT GLITTERED
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT BUT GOLD
I LOST MY DIAMOND

(TAG) Bb - Gm
OOOH OH (adlib) I LOST MY DIAMOND
