James "Jim" Diamond was een Britse zanger uit Schotland, die bekend was als zanger van Ph.D. en als solozanger.

Diamond was in de jaren zeventig zanger van de rockband Bandit.



Hij brak in 1981 echt door met Ph.D., dat een internationale hit had met het nummer I Won't Let You Down. De band ging kort daarna uit elkaar en Diamond startte een solocarrière met onder meer de hit I Should Have Known Better.



Met Hi Ho Silver in 1986 haalde hij een nummer-5-notering in de UK Singles Chart. In 1999 verscheen het compilatiealbum The Best of Jim Diamond.



In 2005 bracht Diamond opnieuw een soloalbum uit (Souled and Healed) en pakte hij de draad weer op met Ph.D., wat in 2009 resulteerde in het album Ph.D. Three.



Jim Diamond overleed op 8 oktober 2015, onverwachts, in zijn slaap. Hij werd 64 jaar.

Songtekst

And I should have known better
To lie to one as beautiful as you.
Yeah I should have known better
To take a chance on ever losing you,
But I thought you'd understand.
Can you forgive me?

I saw you walking by the other day
I know that you saw me you turned away
And I was lost.
You see I've never loved no one as much as you
I've fooled around but tell me now just who
Is hurting who?

And I should have known better
To lie to one as beautiful as you.
Yeah I should have known better
To take a chance on ever losing you,
But I thought you'd understand.
Can you forgive me?

I, I, I, I, I should have known better
I, I, I, I, I should have known better

It's true
I took our love for granted all along
And trying to explain where I went wrong
I just don't know.

I cry
But tears don't seem to help me carry on,
And now there is no chance you'll come back home,
Got too much pride

And I should have known better
To lie to one as beautiful as you.
Yeah I should have known better
To take a chance on ever losing you,
But I thought you'd understand.
Can you forgive me?

I, I, I, I, I love you
I, I, I, I, I love you

And I should have known better
To lie with one as beautiful as you
