  • This song's title "Diamonds and Coal" represents how a relationship between a couple may become or begin badly to symbolize coal. We have to understand that there are trails and conflicts we encounter in a relationship, but if we try we can keep things together and go from coal to a diamond. The song's meaning is actually quite literal actual at one point, "Love isn't perfect even diamonds start out as coal." >>
