Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - The Outsider


A Week of Marina (Day 1 of 7)

I've posted songs by Marina and the Diamonds before. Visit her official website here:

"I Am Not A Robot"

October 23, 2011:
Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - Are You Satisfied?
"Are You Satisfied?" and "Obsessions"

Those three songs are her best, in my opinion. But I've been listening to her album "The Family Jewels" a lot lately and think there are a lot of good songs on it. Not only that, but the whole album does a decent job of capturing how I feel lately.

So ... I'm doing a Week of Marina this week. Read what you want into my song choices.


First song, posted on YouTube by Barney4000:
"Marina & the Diamonds - The Outsider [WITH LYRICS]"

Feeling like a loser
Feeling like a bum
Sitting on the outside
Observing the fun

Don't get on my bad side
I can work a gun
Hop into the backseat baby
I'll show you some fun

All I know is I cannot pretend
I'm sitting on the outside again
I've got the energy to blend
So I'm sitting on the outside again

These people are really weird
And they're giving me the fear
Just because you know my name
Doesn't mean you know my game

All of us are in your face
And whisper "I'm in the wrong place"
Is there more to lose than gain
If I go on my own again? (On my own again)

Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside...

People are connecting
Don't know what to say
I'm good at protecting
What they want to take

Spilt the milk at breakfast
Hit me double hard
And I grinned at you softly
Because I'm a fucking wild card

All I know is I cannot pretend
I'm sitting on the outside again
I've got the energy to blend
So I'm sitting on the outside again

These people are really weird
And they're giving me the fear
Just because you know my name
Doesn't mean you know my game

All of us are in your face
And whisper "I'm in the wrong place"
Is there more to lose than gain
If I go on my own again? (On my own again)

Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside...

On my own again
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside the outsider (on my own again)
Inside (again)
