Sam's song of the day!

Apr 13

MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS- OH NO!

Don’t do love, don’t do friends
I’m only after success
Don’t need a relationship
I’ll never soften my grip

Don’t want cash, don’t want card
Want it fast, want it hard
Don’t need money, don’t need fame
I just want to make a change
I just wanna change (x4)

CHORUS:
I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I WANT AND WHO I WANT TO BE

I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
I’m now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no

One track mind, one track heart
IF I FAIL, I’LL FALL APART
Maybe it is all a test
Cause I feel like I’m the worst
So I always act like I’m the best

If you are not very careful
Your possessions will possess you
TV TAUGHT ME HOW TO FEEL
NOW REAL LIFE HAS NO APPEAL
It has no appeal (x4)

(chorus repeat twice)

I
'm gonna live, I'm gonna fly,
I’m gonna fail, I’m gonna die,
I’m gonna live, I’m gonna fly
I’m gonna fail, gonna die, die, die, die

(chorus repeat twice)

Da-da-dum…
Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no

MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS- SCABS AND PLASTER


I STEPPED INTO A ROOM OF CLOCKS THAT ALL TOLD DIFFERENT TIMES
I stepped into a mirrored world that mirrored all our crimes 
YOU KEEP PICKING AT THE SCAB AND I’LL KEEP SELLING THE PLASTER
YOU KEEP ON TELLING ME I’M BAD
But I keep on getting better faster 

YOU HOLD ME DOWN AND HOLD ME UP
YOU CAN’T COMMUNICATE
You brought me up just to bring me down 
I’VE NOTHING LEFT TO SAY

I’VE LOST, I’VE LOST MY INNOCENCE
I’ve found my self-belief 
And in a cup of loneliness 
I’ve found instant relief 

You hold me down, you hold me up 
Oh Daddy, are we out of luck? 
YOU BROUGHT ME DOWN TO BRING ME UP
You shut me in, you shut me up 

I’m gone, I’m gone to heaven 
I’m gone, I’m gone to hell 
IF NOBODY COULD SEE I’D HOLD MY HAND OUT TO BE HELD
I wish that you could just admit
That you did bad things too
Instead of criticising me
So I don’t look at you

You hold me down and you hold me up 
I can’t communicate 
You brought me up just to bring me down 
I’VE NOTHING LEFT TO SAY

I’ve lost, I’ve lost my innocence 
I’ve found my self-belief 
AND IN A CUP OF LONELINESS 
I’VE FOUND INSTANT RELIEF

You hold me down, you hold me up 
Oh Daddy, are we out of luck? 
You brought me up, you bring me down 
You shut me in, you shut me up 

You keep picking at the scab 
So I’ll keep on selling the plaster 
And you, you think I’m bad 
SO I’LL KEEP ON GETTING BETTER FASTER

I’ve lost, I’ve lost my innocence 
I’VE FOUND MY SELF-BELIEF
And in a cup of loneliness 
I’ve found instant relief 

You hold me down, you hold me up 
Oh Daddy, are we out of luck? 
You brought me up to bring me down 
YOU SHUT ME IN, YOU SHUT ME UP

I’ve lost, I’ve lost my confidence 
I FOUND MY SELF BELIEF
And in a cup of loneliness 
I found instant relief

You tell me what to say and wear 
YOU SAY THAT IT’S BECAUSE YOU CARE
But I prefer to be alone 
THAN LIVE A LIFE THAT’S NOT MY OWN

MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS- FEAR AND LOATHING


I’VE LIVED A LOT OF DIFFERENT LIVES
BEEN DIFFERENT PEOPLE MANY TIMES
I live my life in bitterness
AND FILL MY HEART WITH EMPTINESS

And now I see, I see it for the first time,
There is no crime in being kind
Not everyone is out to screw you over
MAYBE, OH JUST MAYBE, THEY WANNA GET TO KNOW YA

Now the time is here,
Baby you don’t have to live your life in fear
And the sky is clear, is clear of fear

DON’T WANNA LIVE IN FEAR AND LOATHING
I WANNA FEEL LIKE I AM FLOATING
INSTEAD OF CONSTANTLY EXPLODING
IN FEAR AND LOATHING

GOT DIFFERENT PEOPLE INSIDE MY HEAD
I WONDER WHICH ONE THEY LIKE BEST
I’M DONE TRYIN’ TO HAVE IT ALL
AND ENDIN’ UP WITH NOT MUCH AT ALL

And now the time is here,
Baby you don’t have to live your life in fear
AND THE SKY IS CLEAR OF FEAR, IS CLEAR OF FEAR
OF FEAR

Don’t wanna live in fear and loathing
I wanna feel like I am floating
Instead of constantly exploding
In fear and loathing.

And when the time comes along
And the lights run out,
I KNOW WHERE I BELONG
WHEN THEY BLOW ME OUT

Don’t wanna live in fear and loathing
I wanna feel like I am floating
Instead of constantly exploding
In fear and loathing.

I WANNA BE COMPLETELY WEIGHTLESS
I WANNA TOUCH THE EDGE OF GREATNESS
DON’T WANNA BE COMPLETELY FAITHLESS
COMPLETELY FAITHLESS

When the time comes around
When the lights will go out
WHEN THE TIME COMES AROUND
WHEN THE LIGHTS THEY GO OUT.

MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS- THE STATE OF DREAMING

Millions of girls float on their one quote
Living on their last hope, on their last hope
I LIVE MY LIFE INSIDE A DREAM
ONLY WAKING WHEN I SLEEP
I WOULD SELL MY SORRY SOUL, IF I COULD HAVE IT ALL

MY LIFE IS A PLAY, IS A PLAY, IS A PLAY
MY LIFE IS A PLAY, IS A PLAY, IS A PLAY

YEAH I’VE BEEN LIVING IN THE STATE OF DREAMING
LIVING IN A MAKE BELIEVE LAND
living in the state of dreaming, of dreaming, of dreaming

ALL I REALLY WANT IS TO BE WONDERFUL
PEOPLE IN THIS TOWN THEY, THEY CAN BE SO CRUEL
I live my life inside a dream,
only waking when I sleep
If I could sell my sorry soul, I would have it all

My life is a play, is a play, is a play
My life is a play, is a play, is a play
YEAH I’VE BEEN LIVING IN THE STATE OF DREAMING
living in a make-believe land
living in the state of dreaming, of dreaming, of dreaming

IF ONLY YOU KNEW MY DEAR,
HOW I LIVE MY LIFE IN FEAR
If only you knew my dear,
How I know my time is near

Yeah I’ve been living in the state of dreaming
living in a make-believe land
living in the state of dreaming, of dreaming, of dreaming
living in the state of dreaming
living in a make-believe land
living in the state of dreaming, of dreaming, of dreaming


MY LIFE IS A PLAY, IS A PLAY, IS A PLAY
