Lorde – Yellow Flicker Beat lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
It keeps my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
I move through town, I'm quiet like a fire
And my necklace is of rope, i tie it and untie it

[Pre-Chorus]
And our people talk to me, but nothing ever hits
So
people talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes
I'm going in (ooh)

[Chorus]
This is the start of how it all ends
They used
to shout my name, now they whisper it
I'm speeding
up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We're at
the start, the colors disappear
I never
watch the stars there's so much down here
So I
just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

[Verse 2]
I dream all year, but they're not the same kinds
And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time

[Pre-Chorus]
And now people talk to me I'm slipping out of reach now
People talk to me, and all their faces blur
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I'm locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me
I'm going
in (ooh)

[Chorus]
This is the start of how it all ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I'm speeding up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We're at the
start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars there's so much down here
So I just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

[Outro]
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat

    Ok so this is from 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'? Not a very The Hunger Games theme, but if you look at the lyrics, it actually makes sense. If you put this song with Katniss, the girl on fire, then you can actually see how this makes sense. And we really don't know where exactly this song is going to be but, if the hunger games executives and producers and directors chose this song. We should trust them. After all, another riveting hungry games movie is taking place!
