Lady Gaga – Diamond Heart lyrics
[Verse 1]
Young, wild, American
Lookin' to be somethin'
Out of school go-go'n
For a hundred or two
Some asshole broke me in
Wrecked all my innocence
I'll just keep go-go'n
And this dance is on you

[Pre-Chorus]
One, five, ten, lay a million on me
Before the end of this song
[Chorus]
Young, wild, American
C'mon baby, do you have a girlfriend?
Rain on me a million
I'm not flawless, but I gotta diamond heart

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, I
I might not be flawless, but you know
I gotta diamond heart
Oh, I
I might not be flawless, but you know
I gotta diamond heart

[Verse 2]
Young, wild, American
Head full of Jameson
Girl's playin' bad 'cause it doesn't pay to be good
A cruel king made me tough
Daddy's girl's never good enough
I'll just keep go-go'n
'Cause this dance is on you

[Pre-Chorus]
One, five, ten, lay a million on me
Before the end of this song

[Chorus]
Young, wild, American
C'mon baby, do you have a girlfriend?
Rain on me a million
I'm not flawless, but I gotta diamond heart

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, I
I might not be flawless, but you know
I gotta diamond heart
Oh, I
I might not be flawless, but you know
I gotta diamond heart

[Bridge]
Good thing I know what I'm worth
Want a good thing, put the money down first
Better get a good look baby
'Cause soon I'm breaking out of here

[Chorus]
Young, wild, American
C'mon baby, do you have a girlfriend?
Rain on me a million
I'm not flawless, but I gotta diamond heart

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, I
I might not be flawless, but you know
I gotta diamond heart
Oh, I
I might not be flawless, but you know
I gotta diamond heart

[Outro]
Diamond heart

    It's a song about a girl who is a stripper and wants something more in life, she strips for money but wants out. Her past has broken her down and made her feel like she is never good enough. Mainly the men in her life, including her father. When she sings "one five ten lay a million on me before the end of this song" she is referring to the money they give her and wants as much as possible "a million dollars" in order to "break out" or leave the stripping life. She is a dancer but she is still good at heart. She has a Diamond heart.
