Lorde – Yellow Flicker Beat Lyrics

I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm1
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 me2
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fire
And my necklace is of opal, I tie it and untie it

And our people talk to me, but nothing ever hits3
So people talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes4
I’m going in5 (ooh)

This is the start of how it all ever ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it6
I’m speeding up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow7 flicker beat sparking up my heart
We rip the start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars there’s so much down here8
So I just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

I dream all year, but they’re not the same kinds
And the shivers9 move down my shoulder blades in double time10

And now people talk to me I’m slipping out of reach now
People talk to me, and all their faces blur11
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I’m locking up everyone that ever laid a finger on me12
I’m going in (ooh)

This is the start of how it all ever 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 rip 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

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
