MARINA & THE DIAMONDS - Solitaire

This song is from the album FROOT(2015), released on Mar 16, 2015.
This one felt like a great song. I enjoyed the lyrics and the production of it. The background music, although a bit annoying at the beginning, became a little interesting as the song progressed. The slight distortion on her voice added a great feel and emotion to the song. The lyrics were really interesting and the concept was impressive as well.

[INTRO] Gm D Eb Gm D F Cm
[VERSE]
Gm                D
Don't wanna talk anymore
D                   Eb
I'm obsessed with silence
Gm                D
I go home and lock my door
F                Cm
I can hear the sirens
       Gm                          D
I see buildings and bars from the window
G                     Cm
And I listen to the wind blow
       Gm                         D
I see people and cars covered in gold
F                   Cm
And I'm happy to be on my own

[PRE-CHORUS]
Gm          D      Eb           Bb
Hard like a rock, cold like a stone
Gm              F       Eb       Bb
White like a diamond, black like coal
Gm          D       Eb      Bb
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair
Gm            F       Cm
Myself when you're not there

Something you consider rare
          Gm         Eb Bb F
I don't wanna be compared
            Cm              Eb
With that cheap shimmer and glitter

[VERSE]
Gm               D                        Eb
I'm in love with ice blue-gray skies of England
Gm                      D           F          Cm
I'll admit, all I wanna do is get drunk and silent
          Gm                 D
Watch my life unfold all around me
F                   Cm
Like a beautiful garden
         Gm                       D
I see flowers so tall, they surround me
F                   Cm
Oh my heart, it became so hardened

[PRE-CHORUS]
Gm          D      Eb           Bb
Hard like a rock, cold like a stone
Gm              F       Eb       Bb
White like a diamond, black like coal
Gm          D       Eb      Bb
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair
Gm            F       Cm
Myself when you're not there

[BRIDGE]
     Eb                   Bb
And all the other jewels around me
            Gm          F
They astounded me at first
     Eb                     Bb
I covered up my heart in boundaries
              Gm                   F
And all the fakes, they called me cursed
               Eb              Cm
But I'm not cursed, I'm not cursed
              Cm            Bb F Gm Bb F Cm
I was just covered in the dirt
