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
