Shine Bright like a Diamond (2x)

Find light in the beautiful sea
I choose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We're like diamonds in the sky

You're a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I'm alive
We're like diamonds in the sky

I knew that we'd become one right away
Oh right away
At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (3x)
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (3x)
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Palms rise to the universe
As we moonshine and molly
Feel the warmth we'll never die
We're like diamonds in the sky

You're a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I'm alive
We're like diamonds in the sky

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (3x)
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (3x)
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (3x)

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond (3x)
Woah... oh... yeah...

Shine bright like a diamond (4x)

    Of course there is something special hidden between the lines,.. This song is Satanic..

    "I choose to be happy" - an invocation to freedom, outside of any rule but oneself.
    Satan said in his heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; Isaiah 14:13

    "You're a shooting star I see, a vision of ecstasy"

    "How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth," Isaiah 14:12

    "Palms rise to the universe"

    "I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit." Isaiah 14:14-15

    As we moonshine and molly
    Feel the warmth we'll never die"

    "All your pomp has been brought down to the grave," Isaiah 14:11

    YES I LOVE THIS SONG TO, BUT I REALLY LOVE WHEN SHE GOES BACK TO HERE ROOTS, AND BRING US SOME OF HER ISLAND MUSIC, I LOVE THE BEATS. SHE'S SO TALENTED, SHE CAN SING ANYTHING. SHE DOESN'T HAVE THE STRONGEST VOICE, BUT SHE HAS SOMETHING ELSE THAT MAKES UP FOR IT. I HAVE ALL OF HER CD'S. KEEP IT COMING RHIANNA:)

    A diamond simply reflects light that is shown to it. It does not produce it's own light. Who's light is Rihanna reflecting?
