"Better Than That" es una canción de Marina and The Diamonds de su tercer álbum de estudio, FROOT.

Para promocionar su álbum antes de salir a la venta mundialmente, Diamandis comenzó una cuenta regresiva subiendo a Youtube (y siendo promocionadas por algún sitio popular) las canciones de este diariamente hasta su lanzamiento. Better Than That fue lanzada al noveno día después de que esto comenzara.

Letra Editar

You're just another in a long line of men she screwed
Just another in a long line of men she knew
And yeah she did, yeah she did what she wanted to do
Like all the boys before
Another dream come true

It's a power, it's a power, it's a power move
And while I'm not quite sure what she's trying to prove
They all say she's got low self-esteem
So, why is she looking like the cat who got the cream?

But you, you can do better than
You can do better than that

I know you've been feeling sad
I've got no right to be mad
But you can do better than that
And I know that you're not to blame
You just got caught in a game
But you can do better than that
Better than that
Better than that

She's the apple of everybody's eye
With an angel voice, devil in disguise
Got a sour face like a poisoned fruit
That the boys can taste 'till they're out of use

And she'll network 'till her dreams come true
Even if it means getting into bed with you
Everybody's friend, does it ring a bell?
I know a little too much, but I'll never tell

But you, you can do better than
You can do better than that

I know you've been feeling sad
I've got no right to be mad, mad
But you can do better than that
And I know you've been feeling down
You're always out on the town, town
But you can do better than that
Better than that
Better than that

Well, I guess it's just what humans do
Hook up with other people until it all falls through
And when it's over, they go out and try to heal their pain
Hook up with another lover, do it all again
I'm not passing judgment on her sexual life
I'm passing judgment on the way she always stuck her knife
In my back ever since we were starting out
Suspicious from the start, I always had my doubts about you

But you, you can do better than
You can do better than that

I know you've been feeling sad
I've got no right to be mad
But you can do better than that
And I know that you're not to blame
You just got caught in a game
But you can do better than that
Better than that
Better than that

CuriosidadesEditar

  • La canción reutiliza la frase "the cat who got the cream" en esta canción. Aquella frase fue utilizada por primera vez en "Are You Satisfied?".
  • Se cree que la canción podría hacer referencia a Ellie Goulding, esto porque la canción contiene las frases "Like all the boys before" y "It's just what humans do", que Ellie usa en "Under the Sheets" y "Anything Could Happen" respectivamente. Además, la mujer de la que se habla en la canción es mencionada de haber "comenzado" con Marina, y se sabe que Marina y Ellie básicamente comenzaron sus carreras juntas.
