Lorde – Tennis Court lyrics

Don't you think that it's boring how people talk
Making smart with their words again, well I'm bored
Because I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killin' it

Never not chasing a million things I want
And I am only as young as the minute is full of it
Getting pumped up from the little bright things I bought
But I know they'll never own me

(Yeah)

Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care
(yeah)

We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

Pretty soon I'll be getting on my first plane
I'll see the veins of my city like they do in space
But my head's filling up fast with the wicked games, up in flames
How can I fuck with the fun again when I'm known?
And my boys trip me up with their heads again, loving them
Everything's cool when we're all in line, for the throne
But I know it's not forever

(Yeah)

Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care
(yeah)

We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

It looked alright in the pictures
(yeah)

Getting caught soft with the triple is it
I fall apart, with all my heart
And you can watch from your window

[Laughs]

And you can watch from your window

Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form showing people how little we care
(yeah)

We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

And talk it up like yeah
(yeah)

And talk it up like yeah
(yeah)

Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah
(yeah)

And talk it up like yeah
(yeah)

And talk it up like yeah
(yeah)

Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah
(Yeah)

    I think that the line "because I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killin' it" means that you should do whatever you want to do, and "we're so happy" means that you shouldn't let anything or anyone get to you. "Getting pumped up with the little things I bought" means that you should think about all the good things in the world instead of the bad things. The last thing is the very first line of the entire song. I think that means that life seems to go on repeat and we don't really say how we feel.

    If one looks at the video & lines it up with the song, one is led to believe that lorde is speaking/singing in the shoes of isis/lilith/ whatever other names that the Arch-Demoness Succubus has conjured up for herself, at a time just before she will be ejected from Heaven & thrown down to Earth as a "Fallen Angel" (Demoness), as per the Holy Bible's Book of Revelation Chapter 12, when the "Ball will be in the other (Tennis) Court", I. E. She will the reigning "Queen" on Earth albeit for just 3. 5 Years, as per the said Chapter of Revelation!
