Katy Perry – Diamonds Song Lyrics

About Katy Perry: Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), known professionally as Katy Perry, is an American singer, songwriter, and television judge. After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson under her birth name in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful. She moved to Los Angeles the following year to venture into secular music after Red Hill ceased operations and she subsequently began working with producers Glen Ballard, Dr. Luke, and Max Martin. After adopting the stage name Katy Perry and being dropped by The Island Def Jam Music Group and Columbia Records, she signed a recording contract with Capitol Records in April 2007.

Lyrics:

I’ve got people to see, places to go
Deadlines to meet, a reputation to uphold
It’s like a ton of bricks breaking on my back
It’s like the force of gravity in full effect I got money to burn and I’m on the sake
They bet their bomb on me ’cause I’m their ace of spades
I feel the walls getting closer
I’m like a bomb with all red wires All this pressure, all this pressure
Maybe it means I’m gonna be
All this pressure, all this pressure
Maybe this means I’m gonna be A diamond, it won’t ever bend
A diamond, ’cause they’re ladies, best friends
A diamond, but there, there has to be more
Than what these pirates are gambling for If not for the push I’d probably be a pebble
If not for the pressure I’d be forgotten forever
Just another stone skipped upon the water
Drowning fast before the other failures I don’t wanna be a distant memory on your wall
Just another CD that you burned and never bought
Am I not worth it to you after all that drama
That we’ve been though? All this pressure, all this pressure
Maybe it means I’m gonna be
All this pressure, all this pressure
Maybe this means I’m gonna be A diamond, it won’t ever bend
A diamond, ’cause they’re ladies, best friends
A diamond, but there, there has to be more
Than what these pirates are gambling for Ooh ooh, diamond
I’ve gotta be a diamond
(I’m a diamond in the sky)
(With you standing by)
(Now catch me if I fall)
Oh, oh, oh, yeah yeah yeah All this pressure, all this pressure
Oh, I’ve gotta be, oh, I’ve gotta be
All this pressure, all this pressure
Oh, I’ve gotta be, oh, I’ve gotta be I’m a diamond in the sky
With you standing by
Now catch me if I fall
Into the arms of a coma All this pressure, I’ve got pressure
I’m gonna be a diamond, baby, I’ve gotta be a diamond
You’re gonna see, I’m gonna be a diamond
