"Weeds" is a song by Marina and the Diamonds off of her third studio album, Froot.

Background and compositionEdit

In an interview, Diamandis described the song as the conflicted feelings and struggles you feel still being in love with an ex while currently dating someone new. [1] Weeds is currently the only song Marina has never performed for a live audience, it has yet to be determined as to why this is as Diamandis has never made an official statement regarding the exclusiveness of this song.

Lyrics Edit

  Verse 1.  

Could have filled a garden
With all the flowers that you gave me
But none of them were ours
You know the problem with history
It keeps coming back like weed
And when nothing feels enough
At least you taught me how to love,
How to love, love
But he keeps growing back

  Pre-chorus.  

Like weeds
Baby, just open your eyes to see
He's growing from inside me
And I just don't know what I can do
I thought I cut him at the root

  Chorus.  

Like weeds
Like weeds
Like weeds

  Verse 2.  

Yeah, yeah
I miss all of my exes
They're the only ones that know me
And God knows that sex is
A way to feel a bit, a little bit less lonely
Yeah, I tried to keep it covered up
Yeah, I thought I cut him at the root
But now I think my time is up
'Cause he keeps growing back

  Pre-chorus.  

Like weeds
Baby, just open your eyes to see
He's growing from inside me
And I just don't know what I can do
I thought I cut him at the root

  Chorus.  

Like weeds
Like weeds
Like weeds

  Middle eight.  

Like weeds
Like weeds
Like weeds
Yeah, yeah
Like weeds
Like weeds
Like weeds
Yeah, yeah

Baby, baby, baby, baby

Like weeds
Like weeds
Like weeds
Yeah, yeah

  Chorus.  

Yeah-eah eh, yeah-eah eh
Eh-eh-eh, eh-eh-eh
Yeah-eah eh, yeah-eah eh
Eh-eh-eh, eh-eh-eh (eh-eh-eh)

Baby, baby, baby, baby
