Rammstein Diamant lyrics with English translation

Buy Rammstein song “Diamant” on Amazon

Du bist so schön, so wunderschön You’re so beautiful, so wonderfully beautiful
Ich will nur dich, immer nur dich anseh’n I only want you, just to look at you always
Du lässt die Welt um mich verblassen You make the world fade away around me
Kann den Blick nicht von dir lassen Can’t take my eyes off you
 
Und dieses Funkeln deiner Augen And that sparkle in your eyes
Will die Seele aus mir saugen wants to suck the soul out of me
 
Du bist schön wie ein Diamant You’re beautiful like a diamond
Schön anzuseh’n wie ein Diamant Beautiful to look at, like a diamond
Doch bitte lass mich geh’n But please let me go
 
Wie ein Juwel, so klar und rein Like a jewel, so clear and pure
Dein feines Licht war mein ganzes Sein Your delicate light was my entire being
Wollte dich ins Herzen fassen I wanted to take your heart
Doch was nicht lieben kann, muss hassen But what cannot love must hate
 
Und dieses Funkeln deiner Augen And that sparkle in your eyes
Will die Seele aus mir saugen wants to suck the soul out of me
 
Du bist schön wie ein Diamant You’re beautiful like a diamond
Schön anzuseh’n wie ein Diamant Beautiful to look at, like a diamond
Doch bitte lass mich geh’n But please let me go
Welche Kraft, was für ein Schein What strength, what shine
Wunderschön wie ein Diamant Wonderfully beautiful, like a diamond
Doch nur ein Stein But only a stone

  1. I was in a relationship with a narcissistic girl.
    This is dead on how I felt when I finally managed to leave her.

  2. Du lässt die Welt um mich verblassen

    (DU) is not there. I have Rammstein special edition, and in the lyric book

    It’s lässt die Welt um mich verblassen

  3. Ad to this another layer: the value of diamonds is artificially inflated, in order to be seen as precious, despite the fact that most “useful” diamonds (used as drillheads, lenses, etc.) are often artificially created these days.

    Despite the fact that the woman may be enticing, her entire “appeal” may just be artifice – no matter how beautiful she is, she is cold, dumb, and overestimates her worth, despite the fact that her only value – her beauty – isn’t hers to begin with.
    And yet, people are still drawn to her like moths to a flame.

    I think this could be applied to many public idols.
    Then again, considering how “soft” and “personal” the song sounds like, it does seem like its more about someone being in a toxic, unrewarding relationship, or holding admiration towards someone who they know doesn’t really deserve it, rather than being a potshot at celebrities. “Ich will” does a better job at that.

  4. To me Diamant seems to be a song about (lets say) young beautiful woman. So beautiful that he cant resist being in the vicinity of her. But at the same time he also knows that beauty is the only asset the woman has. She might be completely dumb, supercilious, arrogant, you name it… So beautiful but still just a stone – nothing useful inside.

  5. Love song in the Rammstein style. A person who is in a toxic relationship. Madly in love with their SO, but they are tired of it.
