"Diamonds" as written by and Benjamin John Howard....
All I am is the bones you made for me so garishly clean
White as the horses, they carry me away
And all my demons, you said, come and go with a haze
I might as well took a
I'll grow old in my way just like you do

Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more
So be clear, just to be clear
So be clear, be clear

All I am is the bones you made for me
Just driftwood for the sea
Heavy as the horses, that carry me away
That carry me away

Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more
So be clear, be clear

Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
Oh oh oh ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh oh oh ain't no way to say I love you more
So be clear, just to be clear
So be clear, be clear

Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
No there ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more
So be clear, be clear

    General CommentWell, at T in the Park Ben said "this is a song about my mum" just before settling into one of the nicest and saddest songs I've ever heard in front of a completely mental crowd.

    General CommentAll I am is the bones you made for me
    So garishly clean
    White as the horses, they carry me away
    And all my demons, you said, come and go with a haze
    I might as well took a (?)
    I'll grow old in my way.
    Just like you do.

    Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom

    All I am is the bones you made for me
    Just driftwood for the sea
    Heavy as the horses, that carry me away.
    That carry me away.

    Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
    Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear

    No there ain't no darkness that I fear
    Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more
    So be clear, be clear.

    Lyric CorrectionThe first verse goes like this:

    All I am is the bones you made for me
    So garishly clean
    White as the horses that carry me away
    And all my demons, you said,
    Come and go with the days
    A mind's will to play
    I grow old in my way,
    Just like you do.

    So garishly clean
    White as the horses
    That carry me away
    And all my demons you said
    Come and go with the days
    A mind’s will to play
    I grow old in my ways, just like you do

    Oh there ain’t no diamonds in the bottom
    Oh there ain’t no darkness that I fear
    Oh there ain’t no way to say I love you more
    So be clear, just to be clear
    So be clear, be clear

    All I am is the bones you made for me
    Just driftwood for the sea
    Heavy as the horses
    That carry me away
    (Oh, that carry me away)
