Marina And The Diamonds – Better Than That lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
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?

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

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

[Verse 3]
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

[Verse 4]
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



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
