MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS - I'm A Ruin


MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS - I'm A Ruin chords and lyrics.
This song is from the album Froot(2015) released on April 06, 2015.
I loved the production of this song, especially the rhythm. The snare has got that bite to it that makes it really nice to listen to. The performance by her is also interesting. The bass could have been improved, because it feels a little uninteresting in certain parts. The lyrics are great and she sings it with such passion and emotion. Hats off to the producer for such an amazing track.

Fm                       Eb
I know that I can't have it all
Bbm                    C#
But without you I am afraid I'll fall
Fm                        Eb
I know I'm playing with your heart
   Bbm                              C#
And I could treat you better but I'm not that smart
Fm                                 Eb
When it comes to love, you're an easy fight
Bbm                    C#
A flower in a gun, a bird in flight
Fm                   Eb
It isn't fair and it isn't right
Bbm                        C#
To lead you on like it's all alright

[PRE-CHORUS]

It's difficult to move on when nothing was right and nothing's wrong
Fm                      Eb
You still can't look me in the eye
        Bbm                                 C#
Cause you've been bitten once and now you're twice as shy

And easier to live a lover's lie

When I'm planning to move on and you're still standing there
Bbm                      C#                                Fm    Eb
