Lorde – Royals Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies 1
And I’m not proud of my address
In the torn up town, no post code envy 2

But every song’s like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin’ in the bathroom 3
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room 4
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams 5
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece 6
Jet planes, islands, tiger’s on a gold leash 7
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair 8

And we’ll never be royals (royals)
It don’t run in our blood 9
That kind of lux just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz 10
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 11

[Verse 2]
My friends and I we’ve cracked the code
We count our dollars on the train to the party 12
And everyone who knows us knows
That we’re fine with this, we didn’t come from money 13

[Pre-Chorus + Chorus]

(Oooh ooooh ohhh)
We’re bigger than we ever dreamed, and I’m in love with being queen 14
(Oooooh ooooh ohhhhh)
Life is great without a care
We aren’t caught up in your love affair 15
