Diamonds from Sierra Leone by Kanye West

Posted in Uncategorized by marbleseawrites on June 19, 2010

Diamonds are forever they won’t leave in the night

I’ve no fear that they might desert me

(diamonds are forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

(diamonds are forever)

The roc is still alive every time i rhyme

(forever)

Forever ever? forever ever? ever ever? ever ever?

(and ever)

Ever ever? ever ever? ever ever?

Close your eyes and imagine feel the magic

Vegas on acid seen through yves st. laurent glasses

And i’ve realized that i’ve arrived ’cause

It take more than a magazine to kill my vibe

Does he write his own rhymes well sort of i think ’em

That mean i forgot better **** than you ever thought of

Damn is he really that caught up?

I ask if you talkin’ ’bout classics do my name get brought up?

I remember i couldn’t afford a ford escort

Or even a four-track recorder

So it’s only right that i let the top drop on a drop-top porsche

It’s for yourself that’s important

If you stripper name porsche and you get tips from many men

Then your fat friend her nickname is minivan

Excuse me that’s just the henny man

I smoke i drink i’m supposed to stop i can’t because

(diamonds are forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

(diamonds are forever)

The roc is still alive every time i rhyme

(forever)

Forever ever? forever ever? ever ever? ever ever?

(and ever)

Ever ever? ever ever? ever ever?

I was sick about awards couldn’t nobody cure me

Only playa that got robbed but kept all his jewelry

Alicia keys tried to talk some sense in ’em

30 minutes later seein’ there’s no convincin’ ’em

What more can you ask for? the international

Who complains about what he is owed?

And throw a tantrum like he is 3 years old?

You gotta love it though somebody still speaks from his soul

And wouldn’t change by the change or the game or the fame

When he came in the game he made his own lane

Now all i need is y’all to pronounce my name

It’s kanye but some of my plaques they still say ‘kane’

Got family in the d kin-folk from motown

Back in the chi them folks ain’t from motown

Life movin’ too fast i need to slow down

Girl ain’t give me no *** she need to go down

My father ben said i need jesus so he took me to church

And let the water wash over my creaser

The preacher said we need leaders

Right then my body got still like a paraplegic

You know who you can call you gotta best believe it

The roc stand tall and you would never believe it

Take your diamonds and throw ’em up like you bulimic

Yeah the beat cold but the flow is anemic

After debris settles and the dust get swept off

Big k pick up where young hov left off

Right when magazines wrote kanye west off

I dropped my new **** sound like the best of

A&r’s lookin’ like “pssh we messed up”

Grammy night damn right we got dressed up

Bottle after bottle ’til we got messed up

In the studio where really though yeah he next up

People askin’ me is i gon’ give my chain back?

That’ll be the same day i give the game back

You know the next question dog “yo where dame at?”

This track the indian dance to bring our reign back

“what’s up with you and jay man are y’all okay man?”

They pray for the death of our dynasty like amen

Right here stands a man

With the power to make a diamond with his bare hands

(diamonds are forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

(diamonds are forever)

The roc is still alive every time i rhyme

(forever)

Forever ever? forever ever? ever ever? ever ever?

(and ever)

Ever ever? ever ever? ever ever? ever ever?

Ever ever? ever ever?

Diamonds are forever

Diamonds are forever

Forever and ever
