Signs as Marina and the Diamonds Songs


Bubblegum Bitch-
I’ll chew you up and I’ll spit you out
‘Cause that’s what young love is all about

Are You Satisfied-
My problem, it’s my problem
That I never am happy
It’s my problem, it’s my problem
On how fast I will succeed


Gimme love, gimme dreams, gimme a good self esteem
Gimme good and pure, what you waiting for? 

Better Than That-
I know you’ve been feeling sad
I’ve got no right to be mad, mad
But you can do better than that


I’ve seen seasons come and go,
from winter sun to summer snow
This ain’t my first time at the rodeo

Valley of the Dolls-
Pick a personality for free
When you feel like nobody, body


Lies, don’t wanna know, don’t wanna know
I can’t let you go, can’t let you go

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love


Starring Role-
It almost feels like a joke to play out a part
When you are not the starring role in someone else’s heart

Living life like I’m in a play
In the limelight I want to stay
I know I’ve got a big ego
I really don’t know why it’s such a big deal though


I believe in possibility
I believe someone’s watching over me

I guess you could say that my life’s a mess
But I’m still looking pretty in this dress


Who are you to tell me, tell me
Who to, to be, to be?

Oh No!- 
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


I Am Not a Robot-
Better to be hated 
than loved, loved, loved for what you’re not 

Power and Control-
Give a little, get a lot,
That’s just how you are with love
Give a little, get a lot,
Yeah, you may be good looking,
But you’re not a piece of art


Buy the Stars-
All my life I’ve been so lonely
All in the name of being holy
Still, you’d like to think you know me
You keep buyin’ stars

I feel numb most of the time
The lower I get the higher I’ll climb


I’m in love with the ice-blue, gray skies of England
I’ll admit, all I wanna do is get drunk and silent
Watch my life unfold all around me

Miss Y-
I walked all night long in the dark just to be standing here
Only to feel like nobody and Miss Y am I here?


The Outsider-
Hop into the backseat baby
I’ll show you some fun 

Can’t Pin Me Down-
All these contradictions pouring out of me
Just another girl in the 21st century


Drinking champagne meant for a wedding
Toast to the bride of fairy tale endings

State of Dreaming-
I live my life inside a dream
Only waking when I sleep
