Three Day Lyrical Challenge (Day 1 of 3)

lyric challenge

A book tag about my favorite songs? Yes please, Sara. Thank you for the tag!!


The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Lorde was the first artist that I really got into. I just felt she understood my little angsty self. Still, being a huge fan, and lover of both of her albums, it is only fitting that I share one of my all time favorites.

“Green Light” was a big deal for me. Everything she releases seems to line up with my life, and it’s just crazy. When this came out, I got out of school early for its release and I still walk the streets jamming and dancing to this song on the sidewalks. I’ve also written a paper and done a project on this song. Needless to say, I love this song with all my heart.

I do my make-up in somebody else’s car
We order different drinks at the same bars
I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth
She thinks you love the beach, you’re such a damn liarThose great whites, they have big teeth
Hope they bite you
Thought you said that you would always be in love
But you’re not in love, no more
Did it frighten you
How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?
On the light up floor

But I hear sounds in my mind
Brand new sounds in my mind
But, honey, I’ll be seein’ you ‘ever I go
But, honey, I’ll be seein’ you down every road
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it

‘Cause, honey, I’ll come get my things, but I can’t let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it

Sometimes I wake up in a different bedroom
I whisper things, the city sings them back to you

All those rumors, they have big teeth
Hope they bite you
Thought you said that you would always be in love
But you’re not in love, no more
Did it frighten you
How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?
On the light up floor

But I hear sounds in my mind
Brand new sounds in my mind
But, honey, I’ll be seein’ you ‘ever I go
But, honey, I’ll be seein’ you down every road
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it

‘Cause, honey, I’ll come get my things, but I can’t let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
Oh, honey, I’ll come get my things, but I can’t let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it

Yeah, honey, I’ll come get my things, but I can’t let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it

I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it
