Smashing Pumpkins - One Diamond, One Heart Lyrics




I'm not here to hold your hand
I'm just here to understand
If you're feeling low I can help
I'm always on your side
Forever near your light
I'm always on your side
However you must fight
Within your darkest night
I'm always on your side

Lover as lonely as lanterns lost
Show me faith's real cost
I'm always on your side
Forever near your light
I'm always on your side
Wherever you must fight
Within the darkest night
I'm always on your side
They won't rush you from me
'Cause here I'll always be
I'm always on your side
Forever near your light

I'm not here to hold you down
I'm not here to love you when
Your stars align and you let me and your heart win
I'm always on your side
Forever near your light
I'm always on your side

Lover, teach me sweet command
Show me where I land
I'm always on your side

I'm always on your side
Forever near your light
I'm always on your side
However you must fight
Within your darkest night
I'm always on your side
With evidence of trust
And eminence of love
I'm always on your side
Capitulate and fade
Resurrect and break
I'm always on your side
Forever near your light

I'm always on your side
Lover, light the way

  5. tfetzer888

    This album was very underrated and honestly way better than Monuments to an Elegy. Nicole kills it on bass.

  6. Q Oscar Jenkins

    I annoy my bitch wit pumpkins and real estate everyday.. Makes me laugh

  7. Kristiana Pinnell

    Yesssssss so much yessssssss

  8. Isolated 937

    Oceania had one of my favorite album covers from the Pumpkins. It set the atmosphere for the album.

  10. Luis Sandoval

    i think this is my favorite one, it reminds me everything <3

  11. Anthony Cervantes

    I'm glad Billy is happy now and accomplished being a man and loving your woman. Bravo. Good music throughout the years.

  12. Thomas Ramquist

    This ALBUM is timeless and I put it right on the same level as Siamese Dream And MCATIS....yes.... it really is that good!

    NosferatuNite

    Me too I replayed this album so many times!! I just wished they made to music videos to promote this better

    Nebulous

    Agreed!! And disgustingly underrated.

    Justin Shandorf

    Very true! I feel the same!

  13. Christhian Alejandro Jacome Gonzalez

    I fucking love this song, thanks Billy Corgan

  14. Armesis P

    This is awesome.

  15. William Tael

    It's for songs like this that I should look at humanity with a raised thumb and a smile of approval in respect for this awesome species.

  16. J Nah

    Lovely!!!!

  17. Leavemealoneabout Usingmyname

    one of the most romantic songs ever

    Kristiana Pinnell

    Monuments and melodies - incubus

  18. TheDistorted

    Reminds me of the material from Billy's solo album (Future Embrace).
    I always liked that album more than most, so this is cool to see he has retained some of that album's sounds and brought it in to the fold of the band's repertoire.
    One of my favs from Oceania.

  19. goodboy

    sweet commands = tell her to do the dishes, laundry, etc.

  20. Megafayce

    Sweet Comanche 

  21. Kevin Eddy

    This is a beautiful love song.  It is right up there with some of Billy's best. I love everything about this song and mostly the lyrics. Unconditional love! SP has always been about pushing the envelope and taking musical risks. This is another gem IMHO.  

  22. Michael Mitchell

    I can't help feeling the first minute sounds exactly like Just Say Yes by Snow Patrol. That's not a bad thing though, both are great songs.

  23. Samyaza Shemyazaz

    @bora bahadir : you stupid fuck Billy is the band... D'arcy she was sexy but she was just the bass player.. fuck off.

    Kieren Moore

    D'arcy was barely a bass player, even ... Her ass was her best 'ass'et ... (pun intended, sadly)

  24. engin bora bahadır

    i love James and darcy...fuck billy

    ScentlisApprentice

    Billy writes all the music you stupid fuck.

    cdreyes81

    Go listen to their music...oh right...

    chris soldatos

    +cdreyes81 i like James’ last album. It’s on Spotify

  25. OneEyedJack 111

    That is one very nice cover

  26. RavernVermount

    I recently went to their show last month & the same thing happen. Most of the fans gave more reaction to their old stuffs compare to the new 1. I personally love some of their new tracks, but I don't think there's a need for a long instrumental piece. 1 of the fans was dumb enough to throw a can to the stage & I can clearly see the unpleasant look in Corgan face. At the end of the show, there's no encore performance at all, even though their setlist that time include 1979 track as an encore.

  27. rogoldomedonfors

    I didn't like this band in their heyday; still don't like their recordings from that era. But this latest album, and this song in particular are incredible. Which a**hole said life is over at 40?

  28. Kingopersia

    the SPs had just been a band I'd always heard of and had a few songs but never really got into. I hear Panopticon a couple weeks ago and I like it...I start listening to more and more from Zeitgeist up to now and I feel like I've been living under a rock. always thought SD was their best work but they just don't stop getting better! I literally feel in love with this melody the second I heard it. just added the SP to my list of favorite bands

  29. lacorde

    Sad but understandable. I went myself to one of their concert. It was the first time and probably the last time I would see them. I wanted the old stuff. Like everyone else in the crowd. Songs from Mellon Collie, or Siamese Dream. The essence of the Pumpkins, the reason I love them so much.
    And I'm definitely not a "bad" fan.

  30. nixter417

    Plus he's already made much starker changes in style like with the adore album (which I liked) this is hardly an extreme change for them.

  31. SAMMY LOVE

    I LOVE this song...

  32. nixter417

    Not only that, but the new stuff isn't bad,and it's really not that dramatically different musically. Still that unique pumpkin sound.

  33. Katherine Schildmeyer

    Absolutely enjoy the sway of the song.

  34. jason1980dtown

    Billy and his music are constantly evolving, as the world is as well. These people that complain about the new music not being the same need shut up and not listen anymore

  35. Armesis P

    The lyrics are truly special

  36. kynes333

    The point is: W/ D'Arcy, Chamberlin, etc. Is one Phase of the AWESOME SP. This is a new phase... they're together. Like one life whose link between middle age and 18 is so differnt yet the same person... All who were there benefit in the moment: before and forward. Corgan is just doing what he knows...and its awesome. I've been a fan of him and the band since the 90s. If you don't do something that makes your fans uncomfortable...then it's not art.

  37. themightyfinbar

    forget the musical content, whether it is hard or soft rock.......listen to and read the lyrics, that's the real Genius of Billy Corgan, It doesn't matter what the style of music is behind them.......

  38. Dean Coggins

    me too.......awesome..

  39. yougazer11

    Without D'arcy, there're still The Smashing Pumpkins.
    Without James, there're still The Smashing Pumpkins.
    Without Jimmy, there're still The Smashing Pumpkins.
    Without Billy, there will never be The Smashing Pumpkins.

    chris soldatos

    Guess who’s back?

  40. Powered by Tesla

    I agree, its really unfortunate too because there is a lot people are missing by feeling so entitled. A generation of whiney babies with lawyers

  41. Mr. Matt fox

    awesome song. :)

  42. Doctor Professor 3000

    They're ungrateful and undeserving. Too many fans are like that they can't appreciate anything that they don't understand. All they do is want, want, want. That's the problem they can never be satisfied, it's just the culture we live in.

  43. Luke Johnson

    Yes it is, dear.

  44. RakensenFlame

    I feel bad for all the people hating on this.
    This shit is just pure fucking art.

  45. Bieber Hater

    IT IS THE SMASHING PUMPKINS.

  46. yasin albayrak

    this is not smashing pumkins dear

    chris soldatos

    Bless your Heart

  47. KimGstudios

    even though they didn't play 1979 at their concert it was one of the best concerts I've ever been too

  48. cramthe man

    7 months on I'm still listening to this awesome album every day.

  49. Karma Kush

    and we are back together now stronger then ever. :o Ugh reading that took me back to that horrible time. Never wanna feel like that again!. Gonna be3 yrs in Aug! =D

  50. libertarianjury

    The Pumpkins should make at least one song for the Wachowskis' adaptation of "The Diamond Age" ...That would be a perfect match. With Clark (Warp Records "Future Daniel" thrown in, Autechre "chatter") --this is some of the best rock and roll ever made. Amazingly beautiful. I'd love to see this be the music Nell listens to as she grows up... ...as we all grow into the coming Diamond Age of high intelligence and perfect prediction.

  51. tlv156

    I actually like their newer "shit". I like their old too. Perhaps it's because I am a fan of a lot of synth pop bands. It's simply a transition, I think Billy is showing he's not afraid to try something new. I call it courageous for a band to test new waters. Just my 2 cents, call me crazy if you want.... All I know is I've had their album in my CD player and had it playing nonstop for 5 months. lol

  52. 1banana2kiwis

    New SP isn't as popluar as the old because we don't live in the 90's?? I get what you are trying to say, but I think kind of silly too. If Gish and SD were released today they'd be bigger albums then their last 2 would be back then. No disrespect, just disagree. There were a ton of alt bands that failed back then, a ton. It all comes to quality, and quality brings demand. If we forget about era's for second, and we should. The earlier SP shit kills the newer shit. All good... just different good

    chris soldatos

    How many 90’s bands are still popular today?

  53. PsYcHo_OuTrAgE

    not heard much of the smashing pumpkins at all but i like them alot :)

  54. Jeroen Bakker

    2/2 The new SP material isn't seen in a light of nostalgia like the 90's stuff, which is a huge part of the popularity. But then again, popularity doesn't mean anything. It's the music that counts and Oceania is great. Just my opinion.

  55. Jeroen Bakker

    First of all: Adore is my favorite Pumpkin album. That's just a matter of taste. Jimmy is an amazing drummer, but Mike really isn't inferior to him. Have you seen him live? He is fantastic! I think the reason why the new Pumpkins stuff isn't as popular as the older material is the fact that we don't live in the 90's. Don't forget that these were the years of alternative music, a perfect climate for a band like SP. Right now we live in a time ruled by social media and Facebook likes. 1/2

  56. thefirstpumpkin

    2nd part. if isn't this true, why Billy don't have the same success? Why Thefutureembrace was unsuccessful, if Billy was solo ? don't you get it! they got it 'cause they was a good band, don't have to write in every song for have talent. sometimes, inspire, have good feeling, mediate, or give support, it is equally important than write the song, sorry if i don't write this well, i don't know english at all and i don't care

  57. thefirstpumpkin

    tThe Smashing Pumpkins were great when D'arcy, james and jimmy were members, Adore without jimmy wasn't good enough, the machinas without d'arcy wasn'yt good enough neither, Zeitgeist without james and d'arcy wasn't good. This, only with Billy is just a good album for any artist, but not for The Smashing Pumpkins, maybe james and D'arcy weren't a key piece, but Jimmy? The Fifth Best drummer in the world was a key piece of the sound and success,

  58. Voldy [Aaron] Krug

    good album, i still like some of there older stuff better, but great album for 2012

  59. Darrin Todaro

    Amazing Song. So true for me.

  60. The God of Hentai - Guy Fieri

    this album is pretty good but i mean, the whole album, the drummer doesnt really have a presence. Also, i miss james T.T

  61. The Phoenician Fulgrim

    The more that I listened to this album the more I liked it then loved it, it fits with me right now where I am at in my life, thank you Billy and crew....

  62. The Phoenician Fulgrim

    Zwan is dead and never coming back, but i loved that album as well, I see your point though there are many Zwan undertones in this album.

  63. millerhxc

    This sounds like it would have been better on a Zwan album...if they were ever to bring something out again..

  64. TheMikoras

    Taylor, Zack, Isaac = HANSON

  65. James Robinson

    *billy and jimmy

  66. hattrickpete

    God I loooooooooooove this song!

  67. Kyle McAfee

    Love it, it's the kind of song you can't like unless you actually get into it. You wouldn't like it as something to accompany another, it's got definition.

  68. juliet

    Philidelphia

  69. Alex Metcalf

    Where did this happen?

  70. juliet

    I went to a concert for this, and the fans were all really hating on him. All they wanted was the old "metal" music. So Billy Corgan when up to the mike and said these words: "Listen here. First we're gonna do the new shit. Then we're gonna do the old shit. Got it?" I laughed so hard. I almost feel bad for them. Whenever they try to artistic stuff, the bad fans get mad. :(

  71. Jonas Gamill

    Megadeth is a better example.
    Dave Mustaine = Megadeth
    just as Billy Corgan = Smashing Pumpkins

  72. TragedyBound27

    Well said Mr. Corgan, I couldn't agree more. Those are excellent examples. In my opinion you are The Smashing Pumpkins through and through no matter who happens to jam with you. Thanks for two decades of pure magic and joy, hope there are many more to come!! Oceana is superb!!!!

  73. Paul Arzooman

    Such a terrific record -- song after song just great.

  74. Pat_Orr2020

    Fantastic song and album.

  75. Brandon Farrell

    This has always been Billy's band, I'll leave it to him to tell me what SP is. And it sounds great. Your "highschool heart" will just have to deal with it.

  76. KiloBravo19

    I Just recently seen Smashing Pumpkins in Concert for their new Album and it was amazing!!! I love the new album!!

  77. KiloBravo19

    His voice is so amazing! His music has so much feeling <3

  78. Marcela Morales

    i just went to see them live performing this new album and billy himself said he feels extremely happy with the new cd, you could see him feeling his music. i actually like it, it is a bit different but that doesnt mean its bad

  79. Tony Ball

    reminds me of the movie Drive

  80. kelseynsuggs

    I absolutely love this song!

  81. Blinky Sails

    This is better than Maroon 5 you retarded ass bags....

  82. agenerichuman

    the Pumpkins were always the Corgan's vision. he did most the writing and controlled most aspects of the music. you can even listen to a lot of his demos and see how much they match up to the Pumpkin's songs. the only other member of who was anywhere near as important was Jimmy Chamberlin. that man is one talented drummer. but even he said, it's no real secret this is Corgan's baby. i miss Jimmy but this was always Billy's band. why change the name? he's still writing music.

  83. Poois Parrot

    As much as I respect Billy as a musician, he is a control freak. Even though he played 90% of the old studio recordings, you can't deny that jimmy, darcy n james had an influence on the sound and structure of the songs, not to mention the live shows. At the moment Billy is surrounded by a bunch of yes men, they're too afraid to speak up against the bands direction. In my opinion Billy should have put the lid on the pumpkins after Machina, and instead focus on projects like Zwan

  84. Matilda Manila

    I think what happened was that Billy transcended into something more mature and soulful. This is why the album sounds this way. The Past is always different from the Present. Without difference, no growth would manifest.

  85. Tool19781

    Shame on you

  86. Shannan McCausland

    Billy Corgan IS SMASHING PUMPKINS...Hands down! The band is great and so was the original but lets face it, with out Billy it's not SP!!!!!!

  87. Jeroen Bakker

    Billy Corgan IS the Smashing Pumpkins. Don't you get it?

  88. Karma Kush

    me and my boyfriend just broke up 2 days ago .. it's so unfortunate.. i feel so blessed to have met him and his beautiful family. this pretty much sums up how I feel about him and how I always will.

  89. Aaron Pigue

    His voice has changed dramatically.

  90. ergheiz83

    Best song of this album by far.

  91. r.d. laing

    so so....the songs arent that bad,,,they just dont have that killer connection or message or riff..billy used to hit yur brain with a bullet of a riff,melody,lyric,tune,watever u wanna call it,with all due respect to the man theres nothing on here that made go WOW...in fact i havnt had that rush from billy since Everlasting Glow & to a lesser extent the fuzz n buzz of Tarantula.

  92. andreadi79

    I tried it, the production is there, the sound is there, but it seemed a bit uninspired to me, simple melodies and hollow body.
    I am criticizing because I was expecting something better. A pleasant surprise like a crooked vultures thing.

  93. Ardakapalasan

    that is a more acceptable criticism than waste of bandwidth - which would apply to ke$ha, lana del rey and the shitzillion clips of stupid drunk bimbos tripping over or fat kids farting that litter youtube... Have you tried the rest of the album? It's actually pretty good

  94. andreadi79

    oh, I got pawned...

    Come on man, it sounds like an A-Ha song.
    I am not here to hold your hand, I am here to understand....

  95. Ardakapalasan

    haters are gonna hate. let them simmer in their own poison

  96. Ardakapalasan

    and you are a waste of water and oxygen

  97. timmya4000

    don't lose the synths billy, continue what you're doing........inventing, creating, inspiring

  98. jbioarma

    ese teclado me llega al alma ♥
