Starring Role
Marina & the Diamonds Lyrics


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

You don't love me, big fucking deal
I'll never tell you how I feel
You don't love me, not a big deal
I'll never tell you how I feel

It almost feels like a joke to play out a 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

Sometimes I ignore you, so I feel in control
'Cause really, I adore you and I can't leave you alone
Fed up with the fantasies that cover what is wrong
Come on, baby, let's just get drunk, forget we don't get on

You're like my dad, you'd get on well
I send my best, regards from hell

It almost feels like a joke to play out a 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

I never sang for love, I never had a heart to mend
Because before the start began, I always saw the end
Yeah, I wait for you to open up, to give yourself to me
But nothing's ever gonna give, I'll never set you free
Yeah, I'll never set you free

It almost feels like a joke to play out a 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

The starring role

Your hard to hug
Tough to talk Road
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 is we undressed.

You don't love me
Big fucking deal
I'll never tell you how i feel
You dont love me
Not a big deal
I'll never tell you how i feel
It almost feels like a joke to play out the part
When you are not the starring role in someone elses heart

You know i'd rather walk alone
Than a play a supporting role
If i can't get the starring role

Sometimes i ignore you
So i feel in control
'Cause really i adore you
And i can't leave you alone

I'm fed up with the fantasies
They cover what is wrong
Come on baby
Let's just get drunk
Forget we don't get on

You like my dad
You get on well
I'll send my best
Regards from hell

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
Then play a supporting role
If in can't get the starring role

I never felt for love
I never had a heart to mend
Because before the start began I'll always saw the end
Yeah i wait for you to open up
To give yourself to me

But nothing ever gonna give I'll never set you free

Yeah I'll never set you free

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
Then play a supporting role
If i cant the starring role
The starring role.
