Lorde – Ladder Song lyrics
No one knows where the ladder goes
You're gonna lose what you love the most
You're not alone in anything
You're not unique in dying
I feel a strange every now and then
Fall asleep reading science fiction
I wanna fly in your silver ship, but
My momma hang and my sister, sit
Its on now, the days are long now
The ups and the sun down
In the twisting morn
If I gotta go first
I'll do it on my terms
I'm tired of traitors
Always changing sides
They were friends of mine

Don't hang around as the promise breaks
Or you'll be there when I'm the next one's made
Kiss the feet of a sarlatan
Some imagine freedom
All the rest is predictable
Trying your hardest to melt the snow
Tie the knots to concentrate
Keep on pulling that rope will break

We'll welcome the new age
Covered in warrior paint
Lights from the jungle till dusk sky
See now the stars burst
Looks just like a blood orange
Don't it just make you wanna cry
Precious friend of mine

Will I know when it's finally time
This whole life of hallucination
You're not alone in anything
You're not alone in trying to be
