Grimes - Vanessa (Official Video)

Vanessa is a song performed, written and produced by Canadian musician Grimes. Vanessa is included in her split album with d'Eon and extended play Darkbloom. The song has a length of 5:24 and was released as a promotional single for the EP. Grimes said in her 2012 Dazed cover story that the whole point of Vanessa was to write a pop song, and for that reason she considers it "empty" and says she hates the song[1].

Video

The music video for the song, uploaded by Grimes' label Arbutus Records on April 13, 2011, directed by Grimes after fashion photographer John Londono encouraged her to try her hand at directing, explores themes of feminity and features her singing whilst several girls wearing strange makeup do actions in the background, ranging from dancing, staring at the camera, spreading makeup all over their faces and talking to eachother.

Lyrics

I've been

Oh, I've been waiting destiny
And my heart is here right next to me
And I'm caught waiting in the rain
Oh, I've been waiting destiny
And my heart is here right next to me
And I'm caught waiting in the rain

And I know and I need you in the storm
And I oh-oh-oh-I-I, oh-oh-oh-I-I-I-I

Hey, hey, you want to play
Well baby I can go and go
And every other day you're running off with so and so
Well baby I would throw you if I didn't know you but I'm paying for it
Hey, hey, you want to play
Well baby I can go and go
And every other day you're running off with so and so
Well baby I would throw you if I didn't know you but I'm paying for it

Baby I would throw you, if I didn't know you, but I'm paying for it

I hold on, and I don't care what you say
But the way it goes it's happening everyday
(I can see space on my radio)
(I can see space on my radio)
I hold on, and I don't care what you say
(I can see space on my radio)
(I can see space on my radio)
But the way it goes it's happening everyday

Everyday
Everyday
Everyday
Everyday
Everyday
Everyday
Everyday
Everyday

Hey, hey, you want to play
Well baby I can go and go
And every other day you're running off with so and so
Well baby I would throw you if I didn't know you but I'm paying for it
Hey, hey, you want to play
Well baby I can go and go
And every other day you're running off with so and so
Well baby I would throw you if I didn't know you but I'm paying for it
Hey, hey, you want to play
Well baby I can go and go
And every other day you're running off with so and so
Well baby I would throw you if I didn't know you but I'm paying for it
Hey, hey, you want to play
Well baby I can go and go
And every other day you're running off with so and so
Well baby I would throw you if I didn't know you but I'm paying for it

Baby I would throw you if I didn't know you but I'm paying for it
