Starring Role

MARINA


You're hard to hug, tough to talk to
And I never fall asleep
When you're in my bed
All you give me is a heartbeat
I've turned into a statue and it
Makes me feel depressed
'Cause the only time you open up
Is when we get undressed

You don't love me, big fucking deal
I'll never tell you how I feel
You don't love me, not a big deal
I'll never tell you how I feel

It almost feels like a joke to play out a part
When you are not the starring role
In someone else's heart
You know I'd rather walk alone
Than play a supporting role
If I can't get the starring role

Sometimes I ignore you
So I feel in control
'Cause really I adore you
And I can't leave you alone
Fed up with the fantasies
That cover what is wrong
C'mon baby, let's just get drunk
Forget we don't get on

You're like my dad, you'd get on well
I send my best regards from hell

It almost feels like a joke to play out a part
When you are not the starring role
In someone else's heart
You know I'd rather walk alone
Than play a supporting role
If I can't get the starring role

I never sang for love
I never had a heart to mend
Because before the start began
I always saw the end, yeah
I wait for you to open up
To give yourself to me
But nothing's ever gonna give
I'll never set you free

Yeah, I'll never set you free

It almost feels like a joke to play out a part
When you are not the starring role
In someone else's heart
You know I'd rather walk alone
Than play a supporting role
If I can't get the starring role
