"Suitcase" (also known as "Diamond Candy") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande. It was later sold to Elva Hsiao for her tenth studio album of the same name, Diamond Candy.

Background[]

While Grande has never released the studio version of the song, she did plan to release it the day after the performance, as this tweet states. It was also hinted to have a music video due to a choreographer being credited for the video, which suggests that this song could've been a single. Although it could have just been for the dance seen on stage.

It was purchased by Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao, the Chinese version of the song is called "Diamond Candy" (鑽石糖), which was released on October 9, 2009, meaning Grande performed the song exactly three months after it had become Elva's song.[1]

When Grande was told in an interview that a fan loved Suitcase and hoped it was on her album Yours Truly, she again stated that it would most likely not be on the album but she would put it somewhere else for them to listen to it.[2]

Trivia[]

  • Grande performed this song on January 9, 2010, when she was only 16 years old for the first and only time.[3]
    • She recorded it when she was either thirteen or fourteen years old, most likely for her demo album.[4]
  • Grande's full studio version has yet to leak as of 2024, and is claimed to be vaulted by the Discord server "Grande", which is a renowned Ariana leaks server.
  • It's possible that before the track was sold, it was intended for Grande's Demo CD but ultimately scrapped.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
I was there in the rain,
Crying again
You said that you've changed,
But you're just the same
Now don't make it worse
By trying to lie
I saw you kiss her
With my own eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't worry I'm not angry,
I'm way past that already
These are the last tears you'll see,
So don't you,
Don't you worry about me

[Chorus]
I know what to do, boy
To get over you
I'm gonna send you away
But I'm not ready so
Just get out of my face
Stop standing in my way
I'm going out to stay
And when you're gone
I'm gonna get out my suitcase
Get out of this place
I'm going somewhere
I can let down my hair
I'm gonna have fun (fun have)
Maybe meet someone (someone)
And when I get home (get home)
You know you better be gone (you better be)
Boy, you know you better be gone
(Ooh, You better be gone) (you better be)

[Verse 2]
Boy, don't look so confused
Remember the truth
Now when I met you
We had nothing at all
I guess that you thought
What mine is yours
And maybe it was
But it's not anymore

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't worry I'm not angry,
(Oh, oh, oh)
I'm way past that already
(That already)
These are the last tears you'll see,
(Last tears you'll see)
So don't you, don't you worry about me

[Chorus]
I know what to do, boy
To get over you
I'm gonna send you away
But I'm not ready so
Just get out of my face
Stop standing in my way
I'm going out to stay
And when you're gone
I'm gonna get out my suitcase
Get out of this place
I'm going somewhere
I can let down my hair
I'm gonna have fun
Maybe meet someone
And when I get home
You know you better be gone (you better be)
Boy you know you better be gone!
(Ooh, You better be gone) (you better be)

[Bridge]
So we believed the one that loved
And had to hurt and lie
So, please, don't make the same mistakes
The problem isn't mine
'Cause I know what to do, boy
Oh, oh, yeah
I gotta get over you, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
No, no, no oh oh oh!
Oh yeah...

[Chorus]
I know what to do, boy
To get over you
I'm gonna send you away
But I'm not ready so
(But I'm not ready)
Just get out of my face
Stop standing in my way
(Stop standing in my way)
I'm going out to stay
And when you're gone
I'm gonna get out my suitcase
(I'm gonna)
Get out of this place
I'm going somewhere
I can let down my hair
I'm gonna have fun
(Have fun)
Maybe meet someone
(Someone)
And when I get home
You know you better be gone

[Outro]
Boy you know you better be gone
(You better be gone)
And when I get back
You know you better be gone
You better be gone
You better be gone
You better be gone

[Verse 1]
Love is like choosing a candy, don't be blind.
Keep your eyes open wide, don't surrender easily,
Beautiful appearance may not be a virtud,
you have to open it before knowing whether you've won the prize.

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't worry too much, be ready to taste,
every candy contains hope,
No one can be kept from being hurt,
Choose the right candy and make yourself shine.

[Chorus]
Shiny diamond candy is your sweet dream,
all of us keep exploring the ingredients of happiness,
Shiny diamond candy has the ray of happiness,
when the right one arrives, the ray may spread,

[Post-Chorus]
Will he give you a shoulder? Will he be a soft candy?
Will the passion be kept long enough, warming your heart?
Wait for the best date to taste, keep it by your side before the expiry date,
The ideal love must be held in your hand.
Happiness must be held in your hand.

[Verse 2]
It tastes like bitter candy losing your love, with bad flavors,
you must be strong enough to be ready to try,
It takes like honey candy being in love, with the ray of diamond,
you must hold your happiness, without being taken by others.

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't worry too much, be ready to taste,
every candy contains hope,
No one can be kept from being hurt,
Choose the right candy and make yourself shine.

[Chorus]
Shiny diamond candy is your sweet dream,
all of us keep exploring the ingredients of happiness,
Shiny diamond candy has the ray of happiness,
when the right one arrives, the ray may spread,

[Post-Chorus]
Will he give you a shoulder? Will he be a soft candy?
Will the passion be kept long enough, warming your heart?
Wait for the best date to taste, keep it by your side before the expiry date,
The ideal love must be held in your hand.
Happiness must be held in your hand.

[Bridge]
My life should not be ruined by loneliness,
I long for my true love, who will travel around with me, oh,
The formula of love is courage.
 
[Post-Chorus]
Will he give you a shoulder? Will he be a soft candy?
Will the passion be kept long enough, warming your heart?
Wait for the best date to taste, keep it by your side before the expiry date,
The ideal love must be held in your hand.
Happiness must be held in your hand.

[Outro]
Hold it in your hand,
Keep the happiness in your hand,
Keep it in your hand...
