INTRO
Am F | G   | Am F | G    |

VERSE
Am             Dm7
Oh, I'm a dark diamond
G7                   C
I've turned hard and cold
F                     Dm7        G
Once was a jewel with fire in my soul
        Am             Dm7
There's two sides of a mirror
G7                   C
One I couldn't break through
       F                      Dm7             E7
Stayed trapped on the inside, wound up losing you

CHORUS
        C
Tell me how does it work
           C7/E        F
How do you make things fit
      Em                    F

I've put it together and it falls apart
  C                         C7/E F
I thought to myself I might understand
             E  
But when the wall's built

And the heart hardens
G7              C
 You get a dark diamond

But you're something else
    F            Dm7           G7
You read me more than I read myself
    Am               Dm7
The one star I could count on
     G7            C
Only comet I could trust
    F                            Dm7             E7
You burnt through my life to the true meaning of love

I thought to myself I might understand
             E  
But when the wall's built

And the heart hardens

About the artist behind Dark Diamond Chords:

Sir Elton Hercules John CBE[1] [2] (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March 1947) is an English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist.

In his four-decade career, John has been one of the dominant forces in rock and popular music, especially during the 1970s. He has sold more than 250 million albums[citation needed] and over one hundred million singles,[3] making him one of the most successful artists of all time. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits including seven consecutive #1 U.S. albums, 59 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, 4 #2 hits, and nine #1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards and one Academy Award. His success has had a profound impact on popular music and has contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.[4]

Some of the characteristics of John's musical talent include an ability to quickly craft melodies for the lyrics of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, his former rich tenor (now baritone) voice, his classical and gospel-influenced piano, the aggressive orchestral arrangements of Paul Buckmaster among others and the flamboyant fashions, outlandishly excessive eye glasses, and on-stage showmanship, especially evident during the 1970s.

John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s and was knighted in 1998. He entered into a civil partnership with David Furnish on 21 December 2005 and continues to be a champion for the LGBT social movements. On April 9, 2008 Elton John held a benefit concert for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign, and raised $2.5 million.[5]
