MARINA & THE DIAMONDS - Better Than That

This song is from the album FROOT(2015), released on Mar 16, 2015.
This song had a very different vibe from the rest of the song. The energy and the power felt a lot different. The production felt almost the same, but the lyrics and the power in her voice was really interesting. The chords used were great as well, it added a great feel to the song. The background vocals and the reverb on her vocals glued the performance and made it excellent.

[VERSE]
              Em
You're just another in a long line of men she screwed
        G
Just another in a long line of men she knew
       D
And yeah she did, yeah she did what she wanted to do
              A
Like all the boys before
A
Another dream come true


       Em
It's a power, it's a power, it's a power move
                G
And while I'm not quite sure what she's trying to prove
          D
They all say she's got low self-esteem
                A
So, why is she looking like the cat who got the cream

[PRE-CHORUS]
    C                        D
But you, you can do better than
D                       Em
You can do better than that

[CHORUS]
Em                           D
I know you've been feeling sad
D                        A C
I've got no right to be mad
C                            Em
But you can do better than that
Em                              D
And I know that you're not to blame
D                         A C
You just got caught in a game
C                           Em
But you can do better than that
             D
Better than that
              A C
Better than that
             Em
Better than that
             D
Better than that
              A C
Better than that

[VERSE]
Em
She's the apple of everybody's eye
          G
With an angel voice, devil in disguise
        D
Got a sour face like poisoned fruit
            A
That the boys can taste 'till they're out of use

             Em
And she'll network 'till her dreams come true
             G
Even if it means getting into bed with you
       D
Everybody's friend, does it ring a bell
           A
I know a little too much, but I'll never tell

[PRE-CHORUS]
    C                        D
But you, you can do better than
D                       Em
You can do better than that

[CHORUS]
Em                           D
I know you've been feeling sad
D                        A C
I've got no right to be mad
C                            Em
But you can do better than that
Em                              D
And I know that you're not to blame
D                         A C
You just got caught in a game
C                           Em
But you can do better than that
             D
Better than that
              A C
Better than that
             Em
Better than that
             D
Better than that
              A C
Better than that

[BRIDGE]
         Em
Well, I guess it's just what humans do
          G
Hook up with other people until it all falls through
               D
And when it's over, they go out and try to heal their pain
A
Hook up with another lover, do it all again
     Em
I'm not passing judgment on her sexual life
                G
I'm passing judgment on the way she always stuck her knife
       D
In my back ever since we were starting out
            A
Suspicious from the start, I always had my doubts about you

[PRE-CHORUS]
    C                        D
But you, you can do better than
D                       Em
You can do better than that

[CHORUS]
Em                           D
I know you've been feeling sad
D                        A C
I've got no right to be mad
C                            Em
But you can do better than that
Em                              D
And I know that you're not to blame
D                         A C
You just got caught in a game
C                           Em
But you can do better than that
             D
Better than that
              A C
Better than that
             Em
Better than that
             D
Better than that
              A C Em
Better than that
