Homewrecker
Marina & the Diamonds Lyrics


Every boyfriend is the one, until otherwise proven
The good are never easy, the easy never good
And love, it never happens like you think it really should
Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love, the other, hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

And I don't belong to anyone
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
(I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
(I broke a million hearts just for fun)
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
(I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
(I broke a million hearts just for fun)

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone
I guess you could say that my life's a mess
But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love and trust and laughter
What you get is happy never after
But deep down all you want is love
The pure kind we all dream of
But we cannot escape the past
So you and I will never last

'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
(I'm only happy when I'm on the ru-u-un)
'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
(I break a million hearts just for fu-u-un)
'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
(I'm only happy when I'm on the ru-u-un)
'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
(I break a million hearts just for fu-u-un)

'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker

"Deception and perfection are wonderful traits. One will breed love. The other? Hate."

It's a cool line because it changes meaning depending on the definition of "love" being used...

If "love" is taken to mean a deep connection, then perfection breeds love and deception breeds hate.

If "love" is taken to mean lust, then deception breeds love and perfection breeds hate (jealousy).

My favourite lines...

Every boyfriend is the one
Until otherwise proven
The good are never easy
The easy never good
And love it never happens like you think it really should

Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love
The other hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone

I guess you could say that my life's a mess
But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love and trust and laughter
What you get is happy never after
But deep down all you want is love
The pure kind we all dream of
But we cannot escape the past
So you and I will never last

'Cause I'm a Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
'Cause I'm a Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
'Cause I'm a Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
'Cause I'm a Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
'Cause I'm a Homewrecker

This character she created is so incredibly complex. You listen to her songs at first, realizing it's a satire bimbo-y character who uses men and as you listen more, you realize there's so much to the story than that and that she's actually very broken.

"I don't belong to anyone."
If you really listen, there is so much heartbreak. She is this way as a defense mechanism.

If only more writers would create characters with this much dimension to them.

Strangely I did

ari sebastian

she copes with her fear of rejection, abandonment and heartbreak by hiding behind a mask that she can no longer rip off. she got so into that fake persona she created, that she can no longer point out what’s true and what’s not. i feel like she also deals with counterdependency; i personally deal with that. it’s the opposite of codependency.

@Andrew Wheeler
Something can be wrong and still be a defense mechanism.
Not all forms of coping are healthy.
Many, like drug addictions, are problematic for everyone involved.
Her actions may be shitty or unjustified, but that doesn't make it any less of a coping or defense mechanism.

Alyssa Baker

@Andrew Wheeler
Psychopathy isnt a defense mechanism.
Psychopathy, which is a type of ASPD, is a born trait, not a learned or environmentally formed diagnosis.
It is not a coping mechanism.
It is a condition where one lacks empathy, because of the formation of their brain and issues with the prefrontal cortex.

@Andrew Wheeler Never said heartbreakers were innocent. Including Electra Heart.
My take on it is that after being heartbroken in some way from various past relationships, she's going to be the heartbreaker this time instead of the heartbroken as a defense mechanism against "losing at love again."

"Electra Heart is the girl you run into in the supermarket wearing a faux fur coat and sunglasses, leisurely picking through the avocado. Her cart is filled with champagne and strawberries and she doesn’t even care that you’ve been staring at her from the bakery aisle. She’s angsty, and you can tell that her phone conversation didn’t end well by the way she dramatically dropped her phone and wiped a solitary tear from her cheek. The same cheek that has a eyeliner-drawn heart on it." Is how they describe Electra Heart in the description. And they couldn't have described her better.

@Soft Whispers She is suppousedly the character MARINA is playing. The bomb queen that is described in the songs.
