Diamonds are forever

Well, it’s a song by Shirley Bassey for one of the James Bond’ movie. I knew the expression that goes diamonds are girls best friends. I listened to it for many years now but suddenly I realized the lyrics filled with frustration towards love. This song is only a divertion from love towards something else matter in life. In this case it’s diamond. Honestly, now I think it’s a very sad song compare my earlier exposure to this song.

If you look at the phrase ‘Diamonds never lie to me’, you will understand that diamond is not a person who have the ability to cheat another person.

Another part is ‘I can see every part, nothing hides in the heart to hurt me’. Well human hearts are complex and rather pretentious. It differs us from diamonds which are only physical attribute.

Diamonds are forever,
They are all I need to please me,
They can stimulate and tease me,
They won’t leave in the night,
I’ve no fear that they might desert me.
Diamonds are forever,
Hold one up and then caress it,
Touch it, stroke it and undress it,
I can see every part,
Nothing hides in the heart to hurt me.

I don’t need love,
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love’s gone,
They’ll luster on.

Diamonds are forever,
Sparkling round my little finger.
Unlike men, the diamonds linger;
Men are mere mortals who
Are not worth going to your grave for.

I don’t need love,
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love’s gone,
They’ll luster on.

Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Forever and ever.
