Marina And The Diamonds & Charli XCX – Just Desserts

At this very moment on NYC there is thunder, lightening, and rain pouring down in buckets.  And the strange creature that I am loves this kind of weather, my mind feeds off of it.  It’s like right after you have just had the most amazing orgasm of your life and your body has electricity running through it, in short it’s a rush, it’s dangerous and beautiful all at the same time.  I listened to this yesterday and have heard this track by Marina and Charli XCX before, but was a bit hesitant to post it.  One because it couldn’t speak more truth to my life and two because I wear my heart on my sleeve and have questioned whether this is a good idea or not.  But what I have realized  recently is that I don’t care what other people think, I pretty much haven’t my whole life, but I am human and sometimes for a moment we can lose track of the greatness we have in us, I bounce back quickly and that is something I am grateful for, and I remember how valuable my emotions and my passions are.  I speak honesty, I breath truth as though if I didn’t I would die.  Sometimes we live in fears and we can either take those fears and let them drive us or we can let them weaken us..I choose driving forward!

This is something I appreciate so much about Marina’s music, her lyrics are so deep and yet her voice and her delivery of the words have so much strength and power that it reminds me at least, that weakness just doesn’t have to exist.  It takes a certain type of person and a certain passion and vulnerability to deliver a song like this the way Marina and Charli do.  As well the production which couldn’t have been more spot on in making this one dark, but uplifting with the electro pop, bitter sweet subtleties.  You cannot fake these types of words, emotions and truth, so for that I applaud this song and Marina and Charli, two dark beautiful women exuding a certain type of rare power. All the words must be seen, so here you go:

Your heart breaks hard…
When you don’t have a plastic heart
You sucked me in through the cinnamon stars
‘Cause you’ve tasted so bitter
But the bitter was sweet
I’m the lovelorn princess
And I’m yours to eatI gave you too much
Gave you too much to touch
Was the hardcore iron through the velvet glove
You were a lullaby
And you had me blind
But now I laugh
‘Cause you’re the one who’s being left behind
I see you cryNow that the shoe’s on the other foot
(Yeah) Now that the shoe’s on the other foot
You suddenly decided to knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighborhood
Telling everybody that I’m no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would
And it feels so good
When the shoe is put
On the other footYeah baby
I know that it hurts
When you’re about to get
Your just dessertsOh heart breaks hard
Harder than glittering cars
Harder than living life fast
Harder than crashing and burning
I hope you that learned your lesson
(I hope that you learned your lesson)They always said that I was a mess of a girl
Ever since you stepped your toes
Into my perfect world
You flipped me upside down
But I see clear from here
That you’re a mess of a boy
You’ll cry these tears for years
Look in the mirror baby

Now that the shoe’s on the other foot
(Yeah) Now that the shoe’s on the other foot
You suddenly decided to knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighborhood
Telling everybody that I’m no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would
And it feels so good
When the shoe is put
On the other foot

Yeah baby, I know that it hurts
When you’re about to get your just desserts

I’m glad that you crashed and burned
Guys like you – they never learn
Never learn
Baby, revenge is sweet
When I am playing
You on repeat

Now that the shoe’s on the other foot
You suddenly decided
To knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighborhood
Telling everybody that I’m no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would
And it feels so good
When the shoe is put
On the other foot

Now that the shoe’s on the other foot
Karma came around like you knew it would
Like you knew it would
Like you knew it would.”

If you are experiencing the weather I am right now, don’t let it get you down, try to look at it in a powerful, electric way.  Hope everybody is getting ready for an amazing Memorial Day weekend, press play and enjoy!
