"Homewrecker" (titled "Home-wrecker" on the US release) is a song by Marina and the Diamonds on her second studio album, Electra Heart. The song was released as a free download on Diamandis's official website upon signing up to her mailing list. [1]

Background and compositionEdit

Diamandis described "Homewrecker" as a response to the previous track, "Lies," in that "Lies" is about playing the victim, whereas "Homewrecker" is about playing "the slayer instead of the slain." She goes on to state that "Homewrecker" fits in a trio along with "Bubblegum Bitch" and "Primadonna" as songs that are about being such an agressor.[2]

LyricsEdit

Every boyfriend is the one until otherwise proven
The good are never easy, the easy never good
And love, it never happens
Like you'd think it really should
Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love, the other hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under "I'm after a brand new start"

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
I'm only happy when I'm on the run
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
I broke a million hearts just for fun
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
I'm only happy when I'm on the run
They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
I broke a million hearts just for fun

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone
I guess you could see that my life's a mess
But I'm still lookin' pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love and trust and laughter
What you get is happy never after
But deep down all you want is love
The pure kind we all dream of
But we cannot escape the past
So you and I will never last

'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
I'm only happy when I'm on the run
'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
I broke a million hearts just for fun
'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
I'm only happy when I'm on the run
'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
I broke a million hearts just for fun
'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
