You bought a star in the sky tonight Because your life is dark and it needs some light You named it after me, but I’m not yours to keep Because you’ll never see, that the stars are free
Oh we don’t own our heavens now We only own our hell And if you don’t know that by now Then you don’t know me that well
All my life I’ve been so lonely All in the name of being holy Still, you’d like to think you own me You keep buyin’ stars And you could buy up all of the stars, but it wouldn’t change who you are You’re still living life in the dark It’s just who you are
You bought a star in the sky tonight And in your man-made dark The light inside you died
You know only how to own me
You’re buying stars to shut out the light We come alone and alone we die And no matter how hard you try I’ll always belong in the sky
And you could buy up all of the stars, but it wouldn’t change who you are.
You’re still living life in the dark It’s just who you are It’s who you are
Wise lessons in love from Marina & the Diamonds in her new song Homewrecker. “Every boyfriend is the one until otherwise proven”, “the good are never easy, the easy never good”. She’s the proud Queen of the Lonely Hearts Club, referring to herselves as the homewrecker. But deep down all she wants is “love - the pure kind we all dream of”. Electra Heart is out on April 30 with the first single Primadonna set to hit the charts on April 16.
“I guess you could say my life’s a mess but I’m still looking pretty in this dress.”
