Froot - Marina And The Diamonds



The Experience: Marina describes herself as Froot - something really cool, but also as luscious fruit on the tree, hoping that her boy will pick her up. "I'll give you all that I've got... I've been saving all my summers for you..." The indie song breaks all categories, an original sound and really original plays on words.

The meaning of Froot is "awesome", Marina presenting herself as a fruit that can't be refused. Thinking "he's gotta have me" makes girls feel desirable, valued even. 
But Froot takes it further: to make him "gotta have me", everything's on the line, at his fingertips. "Ready to be juiced... I'll give you everything I've got." To be wanted (to "be picked"), she'll do anything for his enjoyment. The price tag is too high. Girls don't have to be objects to be valued. 
The core of this Froot is darker still. Death is hinted twice. "Leave it too long I’ll go rot, Like an apple you forgot, Birds and worms will come for me," and "Autumn, I’ll be gone Birds will sing their mourning song." Thinking about death, Froot's only answer is having sex and fun as the only escape. 
Real fruit leaves seeds, building something that lasts. It's a shame Froot is only about the present, because the song thinks life is just meaningless, to be enjoyed till the birds and worms will come for me. 

Ask yourself: Do you so focus on the present that you forget to reach for the future?


LYRICS:
I’ve seen summers come and go
From winter sun to summer snow
This ain’t my first time at the rodeo

Nature ain’t a fruit machine
She’s gotta keep her credits clean
Good things come to those who wait
But I ain’t in a patient phase

It’s summer time and I hang on a vine
They’re gonna make me into sweet red wine
Hanging around like a fruit on a tree
Waiting to be picked, come on cut me free

Come on fill your cup up
Looking for some good luck
Good luck, good luck to you
Hanging like a fruit
Ready to be juiced
Juiced, juiced

Living la dolce vita
Life couldn’t get much sweeter
Don’t you give me a reason
That it’s not the right season
Babe, I love you a lot
I’ll give you all I’ve got
Yeah, you know that it’s true
I’ve been saving all my summers for you
I’ve been saving all my summers for you
Like froot, like froot

Baby, I am plump and ripe
I’m pinker than shepherd’s delight
Sweet like honeysuckle late at night

Leave it too long I’ll go rot
Like an apple you forgot
Birds and worms will come for me
The cycle of life is complete

I’m your carnal flower, I’m your bloody rose
Pick my petals off and make my heart explode
I’m your deadly nightshade, I’m your cherry tree
You’re my one true love, I’m your destiny

Come on fill your cup up
Looking for some good luck
Good luck, good luck to you
Autumn, I’ll be gone
Birds will sing their mourning song,
Song

Living la dolce vita
Life couldn’t get much sweeter
Don’t you give me a reason
That it’s not the right season
Babe, I love you a lot
I’ll give you all I’ve got
Yeah you know that it’s true
I’ve been saving all my summers for you
I’ve been saving all my summers for you
Like froot, like froot

Oh my body is ready
Yeah it’s ready, yeah it’s ready for your love
Oh my branches are heavy
Yeah they’re heavy, yeah they’re heavy

Living la dolce vita
Life couldn’t get much sweeter
Don’t you give me a reason
That it’s not the right season
Babe, I love you a lot
I’ll give you all I’ve got
Yeah you know that it’s true
I’ve been saving all my summers for you
I’ve been saving all my summers for you
Like froot, like froot

Living la dolce vita
I’m in love
Living la dolce vita
I’m in love
I’m in love
