"Just Desserts" (originally called "The Other Foot") is a single by Marina and the Diamonds and Charli XCX, released on May 1, 2013.

BackgroundEdit

The song, probably recorded in 2011 or 2012, was originally a solo song by Diamandis entitled "The Other Foot". The demo did not make the cut for Electra Heart, but it was leaked on June 3, 2012.

The song was updated in early 2013 with new material from Charli XCX. Two slightly different versions of the duet exist, one uploaded (then quickly deleted) by Charli XCX, and the final version uploaded a few hours later by both artists. Fans speculated that the two would perform the song together on the North American leg of The Lonely Hearts Club Tour, but this never occurred.

Official versions Edit

  • Final version 1 (with Charli XCX) - 3:44
  • Final version 2 (with Charli XCX) - Unknown
  • Demo (Solo version by Marina and the Diamonds) - 1:20

LyricsEdit

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Intro∶ Marina and the Diamonds  
Oooh, oh ooh oooh, oh ooh oooh, oh ooh oooh, oh ooh


Charli XCX-icon  Verse 1∶ Charli XCX  
Oh heartbreak's hard when you don't have a plastic heart

You sucked me in through the cinnamon stars
'Cause you tasted so bitter but the bitter was sweet
I'm the lovelorn princess and I'm yours to eat
I gave you too much, gave you too much to touch
Was the hardcore iron through the velvet glove
You were a lullaby and you had me blind
But now I laugh 'cause you're the one that's being left behind
I see you cry

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Pre-chorus∶ Marina and the Diamonds (Charli XCX) Charli XCX-icon 
Now that the shoe's on the other foot

Ha, ha (Yeah)

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Chorus∶ Marina and the Diamonds  
Now that the shoe is on the other foot

You suddenly decided to knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighbourhood
Telling everybody that I'm no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would, and it feels so good
When the shoe is put on the other foot

Marina and the Diamonds-icon Charli XCX-icon Chorus 2∶ Marina and the Diamonds and Charli XCX  
Yeah, baby, I know that it hurts

When you're about to get your just desserts (Yeah)

Charli XCX-icon  Verse 2∶ Charli XCX (Marina and the Diamonds and Charli XCX) Marina and the Diamonds-icon Charli XCX-icon
Oh heartbreak's hard, harder than glittering cars

Harder than living life fast
(Harder than crashing then burning)
(Hope that you learned your lesson) I hope that you learned your lesson
They always said that I was a mess of a girl
Ever since you stepped your toes into my perfect world
(You flipped me upside down, but I see clear from here)
That you're a mess of a boy, you'll cry these tears for years
Look in the mirror baby

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Pre-chorus∶ Marina and the Diamonds (Charli XCX) Charli XCX-icon 
Now that the shoe's on the other foot

Ha, ha (Yeah)

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Chorus∶ Marina and the Diamonds  
Now that the shoe is on the other foot

You suddenly decided to knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighbourhood
Telling everybody that I'm no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would, and it feels so good
When the shoe is put on the other foot

Marina and the Diamonds-icon Charli XCX-icon Chorus 2∶ Marina and the Diamonds and Charli XCX  
Yeah, baby, I know that it hurts

When you're about to get your just desserts (Yeah)

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Bridge∶ Marina and the Diamonds  
I'm glad that you crashed and burned

Guys like you, they never learn, never learn
Baby, revenge is sweet
When I am playing you on repeat

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Chorus∶ Marina and the Diamonds  
Now that the shoe is on the other foot

You suddenly decided to knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighbourhood
Telling everybody that I'm no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would, and it feels so good
When the shoe is put on the other foot

Marina and the Diamonds-icon  Outro∶ Marina and the Diamonds  
Now that the shoe's on the other foot...

Karma came back like you knew it would
Like you knew it would
