Lies
Marina & the Diamonds Lyrics


You're never gonna love me, so what's the use?
What's the point in playing a game you're gonna lose?
What's the point in saying you love me like a friend?
What's the point in saying it's never gonna end?

You're too proud to say that you made a mistake
You're a coward till the end
I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
No, I'm not the type that you like
Why don't we just pretend?

Lies
Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it's all been worth the fight
Lies
Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

You only ever touch me in the dark
Only if we're drinking can you see my spark
And only in the evening could you give yourself to me
'Cause the night is your woman, and she'll set you free

You're too proud to say that you made a mistake
You're a coward till the end
I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
No, I'm not the type that you like
Why don't we just pretend?

Lies
Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it's all been worth the fight
Lies
Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

(Ooh)
(Lie-ee-i-ee-ies)

Lies
Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it's all been worth the fight
Lies
Don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

+Soapfee She probably got this differently, but I'll tell you the way I got it:

Fear and Loathing: Marina decides to change into someone she's not to be accepted, so she creates and becomes Electra.

Radioactive: Electra (because she's no longer Marina at this point) falls in love with a guy who's as lecherous as she is.

The Archetypes: Electra has 4 archetypes (housewife, beauty queen, homewrecker & teen idle) and she tries to find which one she wants to be.

Primadonna: Electra decides to be her Beauty Queen archetype (aka a Primadonna)

Su-Barbie-A: Electra looks back at her Beauty Queen archetype and she starts thinking that she's fake like a Barbie doll. So she becomes her Housewife archetype but she still feels fake and that no one takes her seriously.

Power and Control: Electra is in a relationship with a guy (I'm 99% sure it's the same one that she fell in love with in Radioactive) and he's in control of their relationship. Electra decides that she wants to be in control. That brings
fights between them and at the end, the guy dumps her.

How To Be A Heartbreaker: Electra starts dating multiple guys, to cure her broken heart, hoping she'll find love again but she also thinks "If he can do it to me, I can do it to them"

E.V.O.L: Electra stops trying to find love and convinces herself that love is evil.

The State of Dreaming: Electra sees that she only focuses in her dreams and not on reality. She becomes Marina again.

Lies: Marina tells Electra that she's a lie and that Electra doesn't love Marina as much as Marina thought Electra did when she created her (a lot of people think Lies is a love song, and it is in one way but in another way, it's not at all)

Electra Heart: Marina looks back at her life as Electra and regrets deeply all the things she did. She says that Electra only lives in the dark and is blinded by the light, where Marina wants to lead her and confront her. They go to the forest. The song has the line "Can we go back?". It's unclear whether it's Marina or Electra saying that. If it's Marina, she wants to go back to the start and never create Electra. If it's Electra, she apologises to Marina and wants to make it up to her by going back and undoing everything. But Marina can't and won't come back because she knows that Electra will always be Electra because of the archetypes she has. And then, Marina wipes off the heart from her cheek. That does NOT mean that Electra committed suicide, nor that Marina killed her. The heart was smudged and not completely erased. That means that Marina won the war between her and Electra, defeated her and since because of that Electra was no longer part of Marina, Marina left Electra behind and is ready to move on and start her life again as Marina

You're never gonna love me, so what's the use?
What's the point in playing a game you're gonna lose?
What's the point in saying you love me like a friend?
What's the point in saying it's never gonna end?

You're too proud to say that you've made a mistake
You're a coward 'til the end
I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
No, I'm not the type that you like
Why don't we just pretend?

Lies, don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it's all been worth the fight
Lies, don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

You only ever touch me in the dark
Only if we're drinking, can you see my spark?
And only in the evening could you give yourself to me
Cause the night is your woman, and she'll set you free

You're too proud to say that you've made a mistake
You're a coward 'til the end
I don't wanna admit that we're not gonna fit
No, I'm not the type that you like
Why don't we just pretend?

Lies, don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it's all been worth the fight
Lies, don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh

Lies, don't wanna know, don't wanna know, oh
I can't let you go, can't let you go, oh
I just want it to be perfect
To believe it's all been worth the fight
Lies, don't wanna know, don't wanna know oh

Also, by the way, not many artists would want to show different sides of themselves. A side where they are always angry, emotional, communicative or not as social, loving or unloving, or acting like their usual selves.


Marina is the type of person who likes to be different and that is who she is as an individual, person, and mortal. She wants to show different sides of herself which is the reason why Marina likes to be different, but not like sticking with something like Lana Del Rey has.


Lana Del Rey doesn't show a different side of her self. Because of her aesthetic, tone, and style for her music is different from Marina. She wants her music to be aesthetically pleasing but the music you want to listen to in the past. If you listened to her "Love" or "Young and Beautiful songs. It looks like Lana Del Rey lives in a different time period that's the style, aesthetic or maybe kind of music which is old but new.


Compared to Marinas it's similar but it is old pop music instead of Lana's type of music.


I love Marina's music that is related to old pop.
