Lorde – Royals

Lorde – Royals Lyrics

I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address
In a torn up town
No postcode envy

But every song’s like:
Gold teeth, Grey Goose, tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
We don’t care
We’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody’s like:
Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tiger’s on a gold leash
We don’t care
We’re aren’t caught up in your love affair

And we’ll never be royals (Royals)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (Ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And, baby, I’ll rule (I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule)
Let me live that fantasy

My friends and I, we’ve cracked the code
We count our dollars on the train to the party
And every one who knows us knows
That we’re fine with this
We didn’t come from money

But every song’s like:
Gold teeth, Grey Goose, tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashing the hotel room
We don’t care
We’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody’s like:
Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tiger’s on a gold leash
We don’t care
We’re aren’t caught up in your love affair

And we’ll never be royals (Royals)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (Ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And, baby, I’ll rule (I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule)
Let me live that fantasy

Oh, oh, oh, oh
We’re bigger than we ever dreamed
And I’m in love with being queen
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Life is great without a care
We aren’t caught up in your love affair

And we’ll never be royals (Royals)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (Ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And, baby, I’ll rule (I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule)
Let me live that fantasy
