MARINA & THE DIAMONDS - Weeds

This song is from the album FROOT(2015), released on Mar 16,2015.
I really enjoyed the rhythm of this song. The kick had such power and energy that it solely carried the song across. The guitar lead in between added a new level of complexity in the production that made it really interesting. The vocals and the vocal effects were impressive, it added that much needed depth and width which made the song even more beautiful. The bass could have been better, because it felt a little laid down in the back.

[INTRO] F Fmaj7 Gm Bb
[VERSE]
F                       Fmaj7
Could have filled a garden
                 Gm                        Bb
With all the flowers that you gave me, baby
F                       Fmaj7
But none of them were ours
                Gm
You know the problem with history
Bb                           F
It keeps coming back like a weed
           Fmaj7          Gm
And when nothing feels enough
               Bb               F
At least you taught me how to love
        Fmaj7 Gm
How to love
          Bb
But he keeps growing back

[CHORUS]
       F Fmaj7
Like weeds
             Gm
Baby, just open your eyes to see
Bb                       F Fmaj7
He's growing from inside me
            Gm
And I just don't know what I can do
Bb                          Gm Bb
I thought I cut him at the root
        Dm C
Like weeds
         Gm Bb
Like weeds
        F Fmaj7 Gm Bb
Like weeds  Yeah

[VERSE]
F   Fmaj7         Gm
I miss all of my exes
            Bb                  F
They're the only ones that know me
     Fmaj7
And God knows that sex is
Gm                    Bb                 Dm
A way to feel a bit, a little bit less lonely
        C
Yeah, I tried to keep it covered up
Gm         Bb                      Dm
Yeah, I thought I cut him at the root
     C                      Gm
But now I think my time is up
           Bb
'Cause he keeps growing back

[CHORUS]
       F Fmaj7
Like weeds
             Gm
Baby, just open your eyes to see
Bb                       F Fmaj7
He's growing from inside me
            Gm
And I just don't know what I can do
Bb                          Gm Bb
I thought I cut him at the root
        Dm C
Like weeds

Baby, baby baby baby
