LORDE



"Royals"

[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 a torn-up town, no postcode envy

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 timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don't 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.

[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.

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 timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't 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.

Ooh ooh oh
We're bigger than we ever dreamed,
And I'm in love with being queen.
Ooh ooh 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.




Lirik yang menarik dan menggugah menurut saya. Terkadang seseorang menyukai lirik lagu karena pengalaman yang mirip bahkan sama dengan kandungan lirik tersebut. Begitupun saya, hampir selalu membicarakan hal-hal seperti ini dengan sahabat-sahabat saya. Kami adalah perempuan-perempuan tangguh yang terbiasa menghadapi kesulitan hidup. "BISA KARENA BIASA"!! Kami memimpikan dunia dongeng, menari striptis bergantian didalam kamar (sssttt), menghitung uang didalam taksi, tidak memedulikan opini orang tentang gaya kami berpakaian, menyimpan begitu banyak rahasia mereka, kami memerintah dunia kami sendiri dan YAP! kami memang drama queen. Sekali-sekali saya tersenyum melihat orang-orang memandang iri dengan kebebasan yang kami genggam. Kata mereka bahagia itu sederhana, saya pun setuju.
Setelah mendengar lagunya berulang-ulang, akhirnya saya memutuskan untuk menggambar wajah lorde dengan rambut yang menarik. Meskipun tidak mirip, cukup banyak yang mengapresiasi gambar saya yg diposting di Path ataupun Instagram. (big thanks y'all).
