Diamond Heart Lyrics
I know that you'll be the death of me
Feel like the morning after ecstasy
I am drowning in an endless sea
Hello, old friend
Here's the misery that knows no end
So I'm doing everything I can
To make sure I never love...

Grief is often amused to as being experienced as an endless sea. The vocalist has experienced a drastic and painful heartbreak which has shaken her to the very core of her being.
She has taken precautions and put up walls in order to spare her experiencing the cyclic grief she has gone through with multiple heartbreak.
The phrase referring to the place broken lovers go supports the claim she has experienced many heart wrenching romances while also wishing she had a stone heart devoid of emotions and love.
Diamonds are forged from coal under millions of tons of pressure and can be only cut or broken with lasers, yet the singer knows she incapable of surrendering herself to an existence devoid of feeling. She would offer the unconditional love she seeks if her heart was unbreakable like a diamond, weathering all the horrors which come with failed love.
The second verse is a goodbye to the one she loves, accepting the only way to emerge from the dark void of heartbreak is to leave the one she loves and save herself. She questions her actions, wondering if her decision will truly give her the peace she seeks. Letting go of love is also explained as being difficult as you have “built a future or a dream of a future” with the one you love.
The chorus is telling the love of her life she would face every manner of darkness and pain to be with them if she only had an unbreakable diamond heart

A toxic relationship or an unrequited love, where she loved with all her heart ("good bye, my love, you are everything my dreams made up" or "my dream's made of"), while he kept being cold and hurting her ("shoot with a gun of gold, dagger, fire, wires, poison..."). So, she finally realizes she cannot go on and she's leaving with a broken heart ("So I'm doing everything I can, to make sure I never love again").

The singer is afraid of loving someone. She wants too and she would if she was not afraid of being hurt again. She cannot fully commit because she wants to protect herself.

Diamond Heart by Alan Walker, the lyrics is very deep and at the same time, it is also clear. The latest comment, analyzed the lyrics and I think majority of those in relationships experienced this situation.

It kinda feels like the opposite that I originally thought the song was about, I thought it was dealing with grief or the end of a relationship and doing so with a head held high, but Now I get the feeling that its about being out of a relationship, knowing it isn't good or positive, and the singer wants nothing more than the comfort of being with that person again, but they wish for strength and thick skin so that they could handle the pains of the relationship.
