"Immortal" is a song by Marina and the Diamonds from her third studio album, Froot. The song is the closing track of Froot, described as "another impressive cut and arguably the darkest thing she's ever written." The lyrics were uncovered on Marina's website due to a design flaw. The song was released as a promotional single for the album on January 1, 2015 and was the third Froot of the Month. The Froot was a blueberry.


BackgroundEdit

In her first interview for Froot, Marina said about "Immortal", "I started writing that song when I went to a war memorial in Poland. Something that somebody I was with just struck me... they said 'It's not a very beautiful memorial, but it deserves to be visited to keep their memory alive.' That's how the song—well, the lyrics—started."[1]

LyricsEdit

  Verse 1.  
I wanna be immortal

Like a god in the sky
I wanna be a silk flower
Like I’m never gonna die
I wanna live forever
Forever in your heart
And we’ll always be together
From the end to the start

  Pre-chorus.  
That’s what we do it for

To reserve a place
It’s just another part of the human race
That’s what we do it for
To reserve a space
In history it’s just
Part of the human race
Race, race, race, race

  Chorus.  
I’m forever chasing after time

But everybody dies, dies
If i could buy forever at a price
I would buy it twice, twice
But if the world ends in fire
And the seas are frozen in time
There’ll be just one survivor
The memory that I was yours and you were mine
Everybody dies
Chasing after time

  Verse 2.  
When you love somebody

They’ll always leave too soon
But a memory, a memory
Can make a flower bloom
We wanna be remembered
Don’t wanna live in vein
But nothing lasts forever
This world is in a losing game

  Pre-chorus.  
I wanna mean something to somebody else

Feel a significance in the real world
It’s not enough to live out a lucky life

  Chorus.  
I’m forever chasing after time

But everybody dies, dies
If i could buy forever at a price
I would buy it twice, twice
But if the world ends in fire
And the trees are frozen in time
There’ll be just one survivor
The memory that I was yours and you were mine
Everybody dies
Chasing after time

  Middle eight.  
No, I dont wanna be afraid, afraid to die

I just wanna be able to say that I have lived my life
Oh, all these things that humans do
To leave behind a little proof
But the only thing that doesnt die is love

  Chorus.  
I’m forever chasing after time

But everybody dies, dies
If I could buy forever at a price
I would buy it twice, twice
But if the world ends in fire
And the seas are frozen in time
There’ll be just one survivor
The memories of our life time
Everybody dies
Chasing after time
So keep me alive
So keep me alive
So keep me alive
