Marina & The Diamonds – Starring Role

I’ve been a little under the weather the past few days but I guess that’s just the time of year that’s why I always like to find new tunes that are a little more upbeat but still have an aggressive message, I just think the majority of us are feeling a little more aggression around this time.

Marina & The Diamonds really hit home lyrically in this track.  I have to always stop and remind myself that maybe when we feel a distance from someone in our lives or anything in general its not necessarily us, but maybe the weather or the work and I am a firm believer in finding a way to communicate so d0nt turn and run like a Zombie or feel like you are always getting the short end of the stick.

you’re hard to hug, tough to talk to
and i never fall asleep, when you’re in my bed
all you give me is a heartbeat
i’ve turned into a statue
and it makes me feel depressed
cause the only time you open up is when we get undressed

I think we always want to feel like we are giving everything our all and clawing to stay on top, weather it be with work, family or your significant other.  I feel like there are more things to be said then just love in this track.   One thing in your life cant just  make you happy, most of has to be making sense and making you satisfied.  If work sucks, find a new job because your work situation could be affecting the others around and your mind mostly.  If your loved one isn’t making you happy put in some effort and spice it up because the emotional part of life can really cause a damper as well.

it almost feels like a joke to play out the part
when you are not the starring role in someone else’s heart
you know i’d rather walk alone, than play a supporting role
if i can’t get the starring role”

As cliche as it might now it’s better to be optimistic and look at things on the bright side even when its sh*&y outside!  We have too many options but if you need to vent and be a little aggressive then definitely hit play on this one and get the dirt out of your system…Enjoy!
