Her Diamonds

The new Rob Thomas solo album Cradlesong is set to release June 30th, 2009. The new single, Her Diamonds, from that album is set to hit radio waves Wednesday, April 22. But you can here it here before then (click Song Player). Rob’s first solo release Something To Be was a big success selling over 1.5 million copies. Rob also became the first male artist from a rock or pop group to have their first solo album debut at number one since Billboard introduced the chart fifty years ago. To say his latest solo effort will be a hit would be an understatement. Here are the lyrics for Her Diamonds.


OH WHAT THE HELL SHE SAID
I JUST CAN’T WIN FOR LOSING
AND SHE LAYS BACK DOWN
MAN THERE’S SO MANY TIMES
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOIN
LIKE I DON’T KNOW NOW

BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON
SHE RUBS HER EYES
SAYS IT’S FUNNY HOW THE NIGHT
CAN MAKE YOU BLIND
I CAN JUST IMAGINE
AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M SUPPOSED TO DO
BUT IF SHE FEELS BAD THEN I DO TOO
SO I LET HER BE

AND SHE SAYS OOOH
I CAN’T TAKE NO MORE
HER TEARS LIKE DIAMONDS ON THE FLOOR
AND HER DIAMONDS BRING ME DOWN
CUZ I CAN’T HELP HER NOW
SHE’S DOWN IN IT
SHE TRIED HER BEST BUT NOW SHE’S DOWN IN IT’S
HARD TO SEE THEM ON THE GROUND
HER DIAMONDS FALLING DOWN

SHE SITS DOWN AND STARES INTO THE DISTANCE
AND IT TAKES ALL NIGHT
AND I KNOW I COULD BREAK HER CONCENTRATION
BUT IT DON’T FEEL RIGHT

BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON
SHE RUBS HER EYES
SITS DOWN ON THE BED AND STARTS TO CRY
AND THERE’S SOMETHING LESS ABOUT HER
AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M SUPPOSED TO DO
SO I SIT DOWN AND I CRY TOO
AND DON’T LET HER SEE

AND SHE SAYS OOOH
I CAN’T TAKE NO MORE
HER TEARS LIKE DIAMONDS ON THE FLOOR
AND HER DIAMONDS BRING ME DOWN
CUZ I CAN’T HELP HER NOW
SHE’S DOWN IN IT
SHE TRIED HER BEST BUT NOW SHE’S DOWN IN IT’S
HARD TO SEE THEM ON THE GROUND
HER DIAMONDS FALLING DOWN

SHE SHUTS OUT THE NIGHT
TRIES TO CLOSE HER EYES
IF SHE CAN FIND DAYLIGHT
SHE’LL BE ALRIGHT
SHE’LL BE ALRIGHT
JUST NOT TONIGHT

AND SHE SAYS OOOH
I CAN’T TAKE NO MORE
HER TEARS LIKE DIAMONDS ON THE FLOOR
AND HER DIAMONDS BRING ME DOWN
CUZ I CAN’T HELP HER NOW
SHE’S DOWN IN IT
SHE TRIED HER BEST BUT NOW SHE’S DOWN IN IT’S
HARD TO SEE THEM ON THE GROUND
HER DIAMONDS FALLING DOWN
