MARINA & THE DIAMONDS - Froot

This song is from the album FROOT(2015), released on Mar 16, 2015.
What I liked about this song is the weirdness of the chords. The song started on a G Major chord, then it transformed into a G Minor chord. I loved the creativity of the band and that adds a nice effect to the song. The production felt retro and interesting, while the vocals had that modern age sound to it. The snares and the background music felt really interesting and compelling.

[INTRO]
[VERSE]
G
I've seen seasons come and go
     Bb                     D
From winter sun to summer snow
G                                  Bb D
This ain't my first time at the rodeo

G
Nature ain't a fruit machine
        Bb              D
She's gotta keep her credits clean
G
Good things come to those who wait
    Bb               D
But I ain't in a patient phase

Gm                      Eb           D
It's summer time and I hang on the vine
Gm                          Eb        D
They're gonna make me into sweet red wine
Fm                      Eb        D
Hanging around like a fruit on a tree
   Gm                          D
Waiting to be picked, come on cut me free

[PRE-CHORUS]
G
Come on fill your cup up
Bb                  D
Looking for some good luck
G          Bb            D
Good luck, good luck to you
G
Hanging like a fruit
Bb             D
Ready to be juiced
Eb
Juiced, juiced

[CHORUS]
                  Gm
Living la dolce vita
Eb         D            Gm
Life couldn't get much sweeter
Bb           F        Cm
Don't you give me a reason
                          Gm
That it's not the right season

G
Baby, I am plump and ripe
      Bb              D
I'm pinker than shepherd's delight
G                                Bb D
Sweet like honeysuckle late at night
G
Leave it too long I'll go rot
Bb              D
Like an apple you forgot
G
Birds and worms will come for me
      Bb            D
The cycle of life is complete

          Gm                      Eb     D
I'm your carnal flower, I'm your bloody rose
          Gn                    Eb        D
Pick my petals off and make my heart explode
             Gm                         Eb    D
I'm your deadly nightshade, I'm your cherry tree
           Gm                       D
You're my one true love, I'm your destiny
