"Coal To Diamonds" as written by and Nathan Howdeshell Hannah Blilie....
I think I feel a little hurt
My fists are turning coal to diamonds
Why no one told me so much work
Would all go into tryin'?
Oh, but those feelings ain't the same
How some things never change
Well, nobody's perfect
And I knew better
Anyway

I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse
I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse

So I was wrong
What could I do?
I knew all along

So we don't, don't think about it
Think it about it
Or talk about it talk about it
We don't think about it think about

I think I feel a little hurt
My fists are turning coal to diamonds
Why no one told me so much work
Would all go into tryin'?
Oh, but those feelings ain't this strange
How some things never change
Well, nobody's perfect
And I knew better
Anyway

I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse
I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse

So I was wrong
What could I do?
I knew all along

I'm a fool for you

    General Commentto me this song is about something a boyfriend/girlfriend has done in the past and you try not the let it bother you but you do think about it and the more you do the worse you feel about itand it makes you feel like how could somebody like this get involved with something like that.

    thats just to me probably nothing to do with it

    her voice is so beautiful here though :)

    General CommentDef about relationships.
    How angry/frustrating they are - 'my fists are turning coal to diamonds'
    'I think I feel a little hurt' - how you try to put a brave face on things.
    'Why no one told me so much work' - can feel like a real struggle.

    General CommentI love how there's no glimmer of resolution, no development at all. Her voice is diamond.

    General CommentTo me it's about her being in a relationship with somebody who she knew would eventually hurt her ("I knew all along")- and it happened. She doesn't put blame on that person (because "nobody is perfect"), but she can't stop thinking about it anyway, which doesn't solve a thing.
