Lorde – Royals lyrics

[Verse 1]
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 the torn up town
No post code envy


[Hook]
But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving cadillacs in our dreams
.
But everybody's like cristal, maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair
.

[Chorus]
And we'll never be royals...
It don't run in our blood,
That kind of lux just ain't for us
.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen B
And baby I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy
.

[Verse 2]
My friends and I we've cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this,
We didn't come from money
.

[Hook]
But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving cadillacs in our dreams
.
But everybody's like cristal, maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash

We don't care we aren't caught up in your love affair

[Chorus]
And we'll never be royals,
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
.
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen B
And baby I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Oooh ooooh ohhh
We're bigger than we ever dreamed, and I'm in love with being queen
.
Oooooh ooooh ohhhhh life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair.

[Chorus]
And we'll never be royals,
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us

We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen B
And baby I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule
,
Let me live that fantasy.

    I love that this song is catchy, but also has a good meaning in there. Everyone does not have to be a super star. You can't be All about you, you have to learn to live with the things you have. Just getting a decent car to some people is like winning the lottery. And even if you don't have a lot, you can still feel like a queen or king. Thanks so much for putting this song out there. I love it.

    I love this song because she is expressing her fellings about how living a life without tons and tons of $ is not sad and is the way she is. I also like the song caus its catchy and has an awsome beat to the lyrics and to the people who think money is all life is about, you deffinetly have not heard this amazing song! 'caus every songs like gold teeth grey goose trippin in the bathroom bloodstains ballgowns trashin the hotel room we don't care we arn't caut up in your love affair'! I love lorde, the 16 year old full of awsomness!

    She is an amazing singer and the first time I heard this song I was like, "YES! This is my new song I love it!" Me and my friends are absolutely in love with this song. When we first heard it we thought she was like 25, but no we found out she actually is only 16, and she is an amazing singer. I could understand everything in this song. It is the best song ever even better than One Direction's songs, and I really like One Direction. This song has had a lot of meaning put behind it. She is saying that she doesn't care about money or being royal and look where she is. She is just an amazing singer, and I will always be in love with this song. Since the first time I heard it to the last time I will hear it will be my all time favorite song in the whole entire world. Lorde has also inspired me to just let everything be how it is and not to care about money or fame because what I have already is enough. And it was going to make me feel happy for the song I love her so much.
