Bat For Lashes - Marilyn Lyrics




See your face at night
Touch you black and white
You're a silver screen
Visual balladry
Wanna move in the dark
Play the part
Put your star in me
Visual balladry

Holding you I'm touching a star
Turning into a Marilyn
Leaning out of your big car
Holding you I'm touching a star
Stay the night if you think you know
Think you know what you're good for

See your face at night
In forever light
You're a silver beam
Visual balladry
On a move in the dark
Play the part
Put your star in me
Visual balladry

Holding you I'm touching a star
Turning into a Marilyn
Leaning out of your big car
Holding you I'm touching a star
Stay the night if you think you know
Think you know what you're good for

  6. Luke Berry

    See your face and I touch you, black and white
    You're a silver screen, place your boundary
    On a move in the dark, play the part
    Put your star in me, place your boundary

    Holding you, I'm touching a star
    Turn it into Marilyn, leaning out every big car
    Holding you, I'm touching a star
    Stay the night, if you're thinking of, thinking out what you're good for

    See your face at night, in forever light
    You're a silver beam, place your boundary
    On a move in the dark, play the part
    Put your star in me, place your boundary

    Holding you, I'm touching a star
    Turn it into Marilyn, leaning out every big car
    Holding you, I'm touching a star
    Stay the night, if you're thinking of, thinking out what you're good for

  13. MartyvH

    So there's no video? Bummer

  14. LoveTheKeyOfLife

    not sure why i come back to this song every single evening..

  15. John Gallagher

    Watched her perform this last Sunday while it poured rain outside. She was dressed in a white bridal gown. Made it quite atmospheric and sad.

  16. maggie ramirez

    I saw her live on 4/20/16 she performed this song and I was amazing!! before she played it she told us to hold onto our lovers 💕💕

  17. Lorraine Wise

    Her lyrical work is astounding.

  18. LoveTheKeyOfLife

  21. Annui Nova

    Esto es bat for lashes y el corazon de natasha khan♡

  22. mimi123b

    I love this song so much

  23. Spartan

    This song hardly has any views. The epitome of underrated. She is such a unique and talented artists, been to see her live, just amazing and beautiful too.

    Jeremiah Mahoney

    she is a beautiful human being. so talented.

  24. sidetracked

    So much talent, really magical.

  25. TLV

    it´s just too good

  26. Mario hernandez

    Incredible.

  27. Roland Dechaine

    Best song on the alum

  28. 56bluegold

    Love this song !

  29. NightSeaBreeze

    Those ratings are fake.

  30. Uatumã Rocha

    F A N T A S T I C F A B U L O U S

  31. Saif Khan Chishty

    Fantastic!

  32. Scott Wallace

    wow I generally don't gravitate to this style...but IM an instant fan. Done.

  33. MaLoveRedhead

    Yuhuuu..!

    Angelo Lima

    yu huuue

  34. Midobecker Gundisalvus

    Most people only like a catchy song and a repetitive beat. We like Good Elaborate Music, Good Lyrics and Good Singers

  35. Jake St. John

    Because fewer people like challenging music nowadays.

  36. N30PH0BIA

    Different genre of music? The Pussycat Dolls have hook-based music that gets stuck in people's heads... If I controlled radio I'd make it so there was representation of the best of all genres but I don't so

  37. pedrofsoarest

    no it isn't

  38. M DE

    Sorry but not sorry this album is TRASH

  39. xxstar6969xx

    Great song

  40. Sandy Bad-Molars Gonzalez

    It's the stupid media that gives them hype. The real artists aren't about to dedicate their lives (or sell their souls) to tabloids and trivial celebrity bullshit. The best we can do is support these cool artists and not participate in what mainstream media wants to feed us!

  41. Wolfe59

    that whole "YOOHOO" part kinda ruined this song

    MartyvH

    Wolfe59 That yoohoo was one of Marilyn Monroe's trademarks

    Anthony Miklo

    MartyvH It's actually really pretty

  42. Theflowoflove

    My pooches are very fussy about music; they love to sing along to this.
    If pussycat dolls came on, they would walk out of the room. Nothing to do with the cat name, dogs have great hearing, so many people are just senseless.

  43. Daniel Wilkinson

    i recognise that bit from 2:54 is it from postman pat 'yoo-hoo' hahaha

  44. 56bluegold

    Love this song !

  45. Miguel Araújo

    That`s life! In my opinion this album deserves to be one of the best 2012 albuns!

  46. CharlieCat

    this is brilliant!

  47. ToolsnFire

    The AmericanVogue version rips all over this version. Damnn. So go check it out on AmericanVogue

  48. Lia Em

    that woman has something magical, she makes me feel full of love! :)

  49. Andie K

    Beautiful

  50. Daniel Amorim

    Amazing !

  51. greencoat95

    Please explain how instrument choice determines musical ability, ingenuity, and sound? It's not what you use, it's how you use it.

  52. Nelson Romero

    so dreamy. love it.

  53. Tyler Smith

    I hate to say it folks, but she's so beautiful because she's lucsifer! You can look into it yourself and make your own decision... Then ask a friend what they think!

  54. Figurinhas Brasil

    Masterpiece <3

  55. Steve Gillis

    Probably because the instruments/synth in this song/this album is not hard to make, and the fact that there are 10k bands exactly like this that are the big thing right now. This is trash.

  56. Spartan

    How do cultured interesting talented artists like these get a crappy 146 views and trash like the pussycat dolls get 97 thousand plus???

  57. michael Murphy

    CAN'T BELIEEEVE MICHAEL JACKSON DIRECTED THIS VIDEO BEFORE HE DIDED!!! :O :O

  58. Ron Crichton

    @blackwarb

  59. Remmick

    Chipmunks happened

  60. Arthur Boyer

    Fuck me, this woman's voice is glorious.

  61. garchomp1728

    This song inspired me to write my own music

  62. Joe F

    just one more time...

  63. Andrea Beaulieu

    love this so much it has been inspiring some super cool new projects for my business! I listen to this at least daily.......

  64. Spartan

    delicious :P

  65. Djembe Fay

    The only complaint I have about this song is that it ends, so I have to keep starting it over :/

  66. GuinTheKimmiDoll

    Aaaah I never knew about this new album 'til today :D

  67. gdjicaDelRey

    This needs a video very soon! I need it

  68. gdjicaDelRey

    Is Sarah still the drummer?

  69. Franny

    that's the best part...

  70. Viviana Martinez

    i loved it.

  71. iljajlm1

    I cannot get enough of this song. Oh my god. That chorus.

  72. Enric Teller

    attack of the yo-yo's

  73. saekolin

    ahah I love it "yuuuuhuuuuu!!"

  74. michyrock1

    Too bad I sound such like an idiot when i try to sing like this...

  75. Trumpy Cat

    ... No...

  76. TWheelz

    Milk and Kisses means everything to me. Its silly to rank Cocteau twins or anything involving Liz Fraser. <3

  77. Title

    Marvel.

  78. FarmerDoom

    I hate these " I'm xx years old" comments. Who gives a fuck? Listen to whatever music you like, no matter how old you are.

  79. Aggy Olejarczyk

    this is absolutely beautiful. I am sooooo inspired

  80. Olivier Paré

    The sound at the beginning : Hyperballad - Björk

  81. nihilistarchitect

    Can I go to sleep now? Please let go of me.... Can someone unplug me?

  82. nihilistarchitect

    Absolutely amazing. Lennox meets Bjork meets Giorgio Moroder....80s nostalgia. Made my day. Highlight of my day.

  83. Agonia

    Haha sounds like smurfs on acid....

  84. SV1200

    My favorite song off the album

  85. Lays Pires

    Música linda! O que estraga são aquelas vozes horríveis que começam na metade!

  86. Ziggy Sawdust

    Stop whining people, the breakdown is ok.

  87. Roar

    I love this song, but right now I hate the new youtube layout too much to focus.

  88. Toby

    This, Laura and All Your Gold sound amazing! Can't wait!

  89. Neo

    I don't know but I fucking love it.

  90. ailene

    how sick would this song sound with the windows rolled down, driving down a dark road on a cool summer night. sigh, that's the imagery it evokes for me. i love it.

  91. Trent Ledford

    the new stuff sounds great . Overall this song is awesome

  92. Simón González Daza

    i didn't like the new stuff at 2:54 , the previous version was perfect already!

  93. NeoVincent

    #TypicalHipsterResponse

  94. Jay Clay

    Natasha Khan can't make a track that isn't just amazing.

  95. munchie944

    not bad....but obviously most of the younger generation don't even know who the Cocteau Twins...if you found this and like it check out Liz and the boys.......
