Marina and the Diamonds - Savages - Lyrics


V1

Murder lives forever
And so does war
It’s survival of the fittest
Rich against the poor
At the end of the day
It’s a human trait
Sewn deep down inside of our DNA

V2

One man can build a bomb
Another run a race
To save somebody’s life and have it blow up in his face
I’m not the only one who finds it hard to understand
I’m not afraid of God
I am afraid of man

PRE

Is it running in our blood
Is it running in our veins
Is it running in our genes
Is it in our DNA
Humans aren’t gonna behave as we think we always should
Yeah, we can bad as we can be good

CHORUS

Underneath it all we’re just savages
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
How could we expect anything at all?
We’re just animals still learning how to crawl

V3

We live, we die
We steal, we kill, we lie
Just like animals
But with far less grace
We laugh, we cry
Like babies in the night
Forever running wild
In the human race

V4

Another day, another tale of rape
Another ticking bomb to bury deep and detonate
I’m not the only one who finds it hard to understand
I’m not afraid of God
I am afraid of man

PRE

You can see it on the news
You can watch it on TV
You can read it on your phone
You can say it’s troubling
Humans aren’t gonna behave as we think we always should
Yeah, we can be bad as we can good

CHORUS

Underneath it all we’re just savages
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
How could we expect anything at all?
We’re just animals still learning how to crawl

Underneath it all we’re just savages
Hidden behind shirts, ties & marriages
Truth is in us all, cradle to the grave
We’re just animals still learning to behave

M8

All the hate coming out from a generation
Who got everything + nothing guided by temptation
Were we born to abuse, shoot a gun + run
Or has something deep inside of us come undone?
Is it a human trait or is it learned behaviour
Are you killing for yourself or killing for your saviour?

CHORUS

Underneath it all, we’re just savages
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
How could we expect anything at all?
We’re just animals still learning how to crawl

Underneath it all we’re just savages
Hidden behind shirts, ties & marriages
Truth is in us all, cradle to the grave
We’re just animals still learning to behave

Marina and the Diamonds - Weeds - Lyrics


V1

Could have filled a garden
With all the flowers that you gave me
But none of them were ours
You know the problem with history
It keeps coming back like a weed
And when nothing feels enough
At least you taught me how to love
But he keeps growing back

CHORUS

Like weeds
Baby, just open your eyes to see
He’s growing from inside me
And I just don’t know what I can do
I thought I cut him at the root
Like Weeds
Like Weeds

V2

I miss all of my exes
They’re the only ones that know me
And God knows that sex is
A way to feel a bit, a little bit less lonely

Yeah, I tried to keep it covered up
Yeah, I thought I cut him at the root
But now I think my time is up
Cause he keeps growing back

CHORUS

Like weeds
Baby, just open your eyes to see
He’s growing from inside me
And I just don’t know what I can do
I thought I cut him at the root
Like Weeds
Like Weeds
Like Weeds
Yeah

M8

Baby…

CHORUS

Like weeds
Like weeds
Like weeds
Yeah, yeah

Baby, just open your eyes to see
He’s growing from inside me
And I just don’t know what I can do
I thought I cut him at the root
Like Weeds
Like Weeds

Marina and the Diamonds - Better Than That - Lyrics


V1

You’re just another in a long line of men she screwed
Just another in a long line of men she knew
And yeah she did, yeah she did what she wanted to do
Like all the boys before
Another dream come true

V2

It’s a power, it’s a power, it’s a power move
And while I’m not quite sure what she’s trying to prove
They all say she’s got low self-esteem
So, why is she looking like a cat who got the cream?

PRE

But you, you can do better than
You can do better than that

CHORUS

I know you’ve been feeling sad
I’ve got no right to be mad
But you can do better than that
And I know that you’re not to blame
You just got caught in a game
But you can do better than that
Better than that
Better than that

V3

She’s the apple of everybody’s eye
With an angel voice
Devil in disguise
Got a sour face like a poisoned fruit
That the boys can taste ’til they’re out of use

V4

And she’ll network ’til her dreams come true
Even if it means getting into bed with you
Everybody’s friend, does it ring a bell?
I know a little too much but I’ll never tell

PRE

But you, you can do better than
You can do better than that

CHORUS

I know you’ve been feeling sad
I’ve got no right to be mad
But you can do better than that
And I know you’ve been feeling down
You’re always out on the town
But you can do better than that
Better than that
Better than that

M8

Well, I guess it’s just what humans do
Hook up with other people until it all falls through
And when it’s over they go out and try and heal their pain
Hook up with another lover, do it all again
I’m not passing judgment on her sexual life
I’m passing judgement on the way she always stuck her knife
In my back ever since we were starting out
Suspicious from the start, I always had my doubts about you

But you can do better than
You can do better than that

CHORUS

I know you’ve been feeling sad
I’ve got no right to be mad
But you can do better than that
And I know that you’re not to blame
You just got caught in a game
But you can do better than that
Better than that
Better than that

Marina and the Diamonds - Solitaire - Lyrics


V1

Don’t wanna talk anymore
I’m obsessed with silence
I go home and I lock my door
I can hear the sirens

I see buildings and bars from the window
And I listen to the wind blow
I see people and cars covered in gold
And I’m happy to be on my own

PRE

Hard like a rock, cold like a stone
White like a diamond, black like coal
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair
Myself when you’re not there

CHORUS

Solitaire
Something you consider
Rare
I don’t wanna be compared
With that cheap shimmer + glitter
Solitaire

V2

I’m in love with the ice blue grey skies of England
I’ll admit all I wanna do is get drunk and silent
Watch my life unfold all around me
Like a beautiful garden
I see flowers so tall they surround me
Oh my heart, it became so hardened

PRE

Hard like a rock, cold like a stone
White like a diamond, black like coal
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair
Myself when you’re not there

CHORUS

Solitaire
Something you consider
Rare
I don’t wanna be compared
With that cheap shimmer + glitter
Solitaire

M8

And all the other jewels around me
They astounded me at first
I covered up my heart in boundaries
And all the fakes they called me cursed
But I’m not cursed, I’m not cursed
I was just covered in the dirt

CHORUS

Solitaire
Something you consider
Rare
I don’t wanna be compared
With that cheap shimmer + glitter
Solitaire

Marina and the Diamonds - Can't Pin Me Down - Lyrics


INTRO

You can paint me any colour
And I can be your clown
But you ain’t got my number
Yeah you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down

V1

Now I got your back up
What do you not like
Do you think I’m stuck up
Cause I’m always picking fights
You might think I’m one thing but I am another
You can’t call my bluff
Time to back off motherfucker

PRE

Do you really want me to write a feminist anthem
I’m happy cooking dinner in the kitchen for my husband

Yeah, Yeah…

CHORUS

You can paint me any colour
And I can be your clown
But you ain’t got my number
No you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down

V2

You ain’t got me sussed yet
You’re not even close
Baby it’s the one thing
that I hate the most
All these contradictions pouring out of me
Just another girl in the 21st century

PRE

I’m never gonna give you anything that you expect
You think i’m like the others
Boy you need to get your eyes checked

CHORUS

You can paint me any colour
And I can be your clown
But you ain’t got my number
No you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down

M8

I could be your sister
I could be your mother
I could be your neighbour
I could be your lover
Do you like my body?
Do you like my mind?
What is it that you are having trouble to define?

I am never gonna give you anything you expect
You think I’m like the others,
Boy you need to get your eyes
Checked, checked

CHORUS

You can paint me any colour
I can be your russian doll
but you ain’t got my number
no, you can’t make me small
You can paint me any colour
And I can be your clown
But you ain’t got my number
No you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down
Yeah you can’t pin me down

Marina and the Diamonds - Gold - Lyrics


V1

You’ve got it in the palm of your hands
It’s slipping through your fingers like sand
Cause they don’t understand who you are
Does’t matter long as I am your star, star

PRE

Yeah I know that I need the gold
But what I love can’t be bought or sold

CHORUS

Don’t think I want what I used to want
Don’t think I need what I used to need
Don’t think I want what I used to want
Don’t think I see what I used to see

V2

I’ve been waiting, waiting for the penny to drop
I’ve been working, working to get back what I lost
But whatever happens I’ll be okay
Cause fortune’s running out of my veins

PRE

You can't take away the Midas touch
So you'd better make way for a Greek gold rush

CHORUS

Don’t think I want what I used to want
Don’t think I need what I used to need
Don’t think I want what I used to want
Don’t think I see what I used to see
In El Dorado your gold
To Colorado can’t be bought or sold

M8

Now there’s no moral to this story
But I can hear my freedom calling me, calling me

CHORUS

Don’t think I want what I used to want
Don’t think I need what I used to need
Don’t think I want what I used to want
Don’t think I see what I used to see
In El Dorado your gold
To Colorado can’t be bought or sold

ALT CHORUS

I don’t care that everybody knows
I’m a million dollars in the hole
I don’t care that everybody knows
Baby I don’t even want your gold
From El Dorado, your gold
To Colorado can’t be bought or sold

Gold Rush
Gold Rush

Free, I am free

 

Marina and the Diamonds - Forget - Lyrics


V1

Sometimes I think I’m not that strong
But there’s a force that carries me on
Sick of my small heart, made of steel
Sick of those wounds that never heal
(never heal)

PRE

Cause I have lived my life in debt
I’ve spent my days in deep regret
Yeah I been living in the red
Oh, cause I can’t forgive and I can’t forget

Forget…

CHORUS

Forget, forget, forget
Ain’t no time to regret
Yeah, it’s time to forget

V2

Ever since I can remember
Life was like a tipping scale
Like an abacus I played with
Counting every win and fail

PRE

Cause I have lived my life in debt
I’ve spent my days in deep regret
Yeah, I’ve been living in the red
But I wanna forgive and forget

CHORUS

Forget, forget, forget
Ain’t no time for regret
Yeah, it’s time…

M8

To be letting go
Oh baby you know
What I’m talking about
Got nothing to lose and nothing to prove
Oh baby, I’m bowing out
Out, I’m bowing out

BREAKDOWN

Yeah, I’ve been dancing with the devil
I love that he pretends to care
If I’ll ever get to heaven
When a million dollars gets you there
Oh, all the time that I have wasted
Chasing rabbits down a hole
When I was born to be the tortoise
I was born to walk alone

Forget about it
Forget about it
Forget about it

CHORUS

Forget, forget, forget
Ain’t no time to regret

OUTRO

I’m gonna leave the past behind
I’ve had enough, I’m breaking free
No pressing stop, erase, rewind
That chain of thought that followed me

I’ve put my money where my mouth is
For the first time in my life
I’ve made mistakes but I believe that
Everything was worth the fight
Cause in the end, the road is long
But only cause it makes you strong
It’s filled with peaks & twists & turns
Sometimes you have to learn forget about it

Marina and the Diamonds - Blue - Lyrics


V1

We’ve broken up and now I regret it
I said goodbye when I shouldn’t have said it
I even cried but I never meant it
And I don’t know why but I can’t forget it

PRE

Gimme love, gimme dreams, gimme a good self esteem
Gimme good and pure, what you waiting for?
Gimme everything, all your heart can bring
Something good and true
I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore (Blue)
I don’t wanna feel blue anymore (Blue)

Gimme, gimme…

CHORUS

Gimme one more night
One last goodbye
Let’s do it one last time
Let’s do it one last time
One more time

V2

No, I don’t love you
No, I don’t care
I just want to be held when I’m scared
And all I want is one night with you
Just cause I’m selfish
I know it’s true

PRE

Gimme love, gimme dreams, gimme a good self esteem
Gimme good and pure, what you waiting for?
Gimme everything, all your heart can bring
Something good and true
I don’t wanna feel Blue anymore (Blue)

Gimme, gimme…

CHORUS

Gimme one more night
One last goodbye
Let’s do it one last time
Let’s do it one last time
One more time

MIDDLE 8

I’m sick of looking after you
I need a man to hold on to
I’m bored of everything we do
But I just keep coming back to you

I’m sick of looking after you
I need a man to hold on to
I’m bored of everything we do
But I just keep coming back to you

CHORUS

For one more night
One last goodbye
Let’s do it one last time
Let’s do it one last time
One more time

OUTRO

Gimme love, gimme dreams
Gimme a good self esteem
Gimme good and pure, what you waiting for?
Gimme everything, all your heart can bring
Something good and true

I don’t wanna feel blue anymore (Blue)

Gimme, gimme, gimme anything
But blue, blue, blue, royal Blue
I just wanna know who I’m looking for (Blue)
Gimme, gimme, gimme anything but blue, blue, blue…

Marina and the Diamonds - Happy - Lyrics


V1
Couldn’t relax
Couldn’t sit back
And let the sunlight
In my lap

I sang a hymn
To bring me peace
And then it came
A melody

V2
It felt so sweet
It felt so strong
It made me feel like
I belonged

And all the sadness inside me
Melted away
Like I was free

CHORUS
I found what I’d been looking for in myself
Found a life worth living for someone else
Never thought that I could be
Happy, Happy

V3
Don’t go out
much at all
I’ve never been
the type to call

I realise to be happy
Maybe I need
a little company

V4
So now you know
you know it all
That I’ve been
desperately alone

I haven’t found the one for me
But I believe in divinity

CHORUS
I found what I’d been looking for in myself
Found a life worth living for someone else
Never thought that I could be
Happy, Happy

I believe in possibility
I believe someone’s watching over me
And finally I have found a way to be
Happy, Happy

MIDDLE 8
From the concrete to the coast
I was looking for a holy ghost
Like the land joining the sea
Happiness it followed me

CHORUS
I believe in possibility
I believe someone’s watching over me
And finally I have found a way to be
Happy, Happy

Marina and the Diamonds - Immortal - Lyrics


V1
I WANNA BE IMMORTAL
LIKE A GOD IN THE SKY
I WANNA BE A SILK FLOWER
LIKE I’M NEVER GONNA DIE
I WANNA LIVE FOREVER
FOREVER IN YOUR HEART
AND WE’LL ALWAYS BE TOGETHER
FROM THE END TO THE START

PRE
THAT’S WHAT WE DO IT FOR
TO RESERVE A PLACE
IT’S JUST ANOTHER PART OF THE HUMAN RACE
THAT’S WHAT WE DO IT FOR
TO RESERVE A SPACE
IN HISTORY IT’S JUST
PART OF THE HUMAN RACE
RACE, RACE, RACE, RACE

CHORUS
I’M FOREVER CHASING AFTER TIME
BUT EVERYBODY DIES, DIES
IF I COULD BUY FOREVER AT A PRICE
I WOULD BUY IT TWICE, TWICE
BUT IF THE EARTH ENDS IN FIRE
AND THE SEAS ARE FROZEN IN TIME
THERE’LL BE JUST ONE SURVIVOR
THE MEMORY THAT I WAS YOURS AND YOU WERE MINE
EVERYBODY DIES
CHASING AFTER TIME

V2
WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEBODY
THEY’LL ALWAYS LEAVE TOO SOON
BUT A MEMORY, A MEMORY
CAN MAKE A FLOWER BLOOM
WE WANNA BE REMEMBERED
DON’T WANNA LIVE IN VEIN
BUT NOTHING LASTS FOREVER
THIS WORLD IS IN A LOSING GAME

PRE
I WANNA MEAN SOMETHING TO SOMEBODY ELSE
FEEL A SIGNIFICANCE IN THE REAL WORLD
IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO LIVE OUT A LUCKY LIFE

CHORUS
I’M FOREVER CHASING AFTER TIME
BUT EVERYBODY DIES, DIES
IF I COULD BUY FOREVER AT A PRICE
I WOULD BUY IT TWICE, TWICE
BUT IF THE EARTH ENDS IN FIRE
AND THE SEAS ARE FROZEN IN TIME
THERE’LL BE JUST ONE SURVIVOR
THE MEMORY THAT I WAS YOURS AND YOU WERE MINE
EVERYBODY DIES
CHASING AFTER TIME

MIDDLE 8
NO, I DONT WANNA BE AFRAID, AFRAID TO DIE
I JUST WANNA BE ABLE TO SAY THAT I HAVE LIVED MY LIFE
OH, ALL THESE THINGS THAT HUMANS DO
TO LEAVE BEHIND A LITTLE PROOF
BUT THE ONLY THING THAT DOESNT DIE IS LOVE

CHORUS
I’M FOREVER CHASING AFTER TIME
BUT EVERYBODY DIES, DIES
IF I COULD BUY FOREVER AT A PRICE
I WOULD BUY IT TWICE, TWICE
BUT IF THE EARTH ENDS IN FIRE
AND THE SEAS ARE FROZEN IN TIME
THERE’LL BE JUST ONE SURVIVOR
THE MEMORIES OF OUR LIFE TIME
EVERYBODY DIES
CHASING AFTER TIME
SO KEEP ME ALIVE
SO KEEP ME ALIVE
SO KEEP ME ALIVE

“Sad to think of the horrors so many good people went through there
but they deserve our attendance to keep their memories alive”
