Music Friday: Fresh Artist Matt Palmer Sings His First Single, ‘Diamond Love’

Welcome to Music Friday when we bring you super songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today, we introduce you to a song that qualifies on all accounts. It’s “Diamond Love,” the first single released by New York City-based singer/songwriter Matt Palmer.

The storyline goes something like this: Palmer implores the girl of his dreams, his “perfect sapphire,” to dump her current boyfriend because he is taking her for granted. Our hero compares the girl to a “diamond in the rough” and if she gives him a chance, he’ll “let her shine.”

“Diamond Love” is the lead track to Palmer’s debut album, Let Go, which released at the end of 2010. The album, which incorporates contemporary pop and electronic dance elements, marked the artist’s transition from a songwriter to singer/songwriter. Said the 25-year-old artist, “I could have been scared about how I’d be perceived as an artist and remain a songwriter only, or I could put myself out there and see what happens.”

Enjoy the “Diamond Love” video at the end of this post. The lyrics are below if you’d like to sing along.

“Diamond Love”

Written and performed by Matt Palmer.

How long has it been,
Since he started taking you for granted
It’s gotta be a sin
And nobody wins
I can’t believe I let him have it
Girl you must not know, oh
How far you could go, oh
Without him riding on your coat
You should take it off
Tell him to get lost
It’s ’bout time you know

[Chorus: x2]
You’re one of a kind
You take a lifetime a lifetime to find
You’re a diamond in the rough
Baby you should be mine
And I’ll let you shine
You’re my diamond lover

[Verse 2:]
The best that I’ve seen
Straight out of my dreams
The perfect sapphire
A piece saved for me
The most beautiful ring
With me girl you can fly
Girl you must not know, oh
How far you could go, oh
Without him riding on your coat

You should take it off
Tell him to get lost
It’s ’bout time you know

[Chorus: x2]
You’re one of a kind
You take a lifetime a lifetime to find
You’re a diamond in the rough
Baby you should be mine
And I’ll let you shine
You’re my diamond lover

[Bridge:]
And if you could see my love
All the things we could be my love
We could walk out across the ocean
Part the seas my love
And if you could know my love
You’re like silver and gold my love
When I’m with you girl I lose all control

[Chorus: x4]
You’re one of a kind
You take a lifetime a lifetime to find
You’re a diamond in the rough
Baby you should be mine
And I’ll let you shine
You’re my diamond lover
