Three Day Lyrical Challenge (Day 2 of 3)

lyric challenge

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

Yesterday’s pick: “Green Light” by Lorde


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.

Sigrid is an artist that I found about a year ago, and I’ve loved her ever since. I feel like she doesn’t get nearly the recognition she deserves in the U.S.. I’ve mentioned this song on my blog before, but “High Five” has to be one of my favorites.

Nobody dares to speak against your word
So they just sit quiet
Do what you want, who cares if you get hurt?

No, I don’t know why you wonder why
Wonder why, wonder why
You’re surrounded by the type of people
That never say what you don’t wanna hear
So they just stay quiet

Oh, everybody loves a show
Lights on, they all go home
You won’t let anybody close
That high five is all you got
Ooh, they keep saying you’re the best
You ask and they say, “Yeah”
Ooh, when you add up what is left
That high five is all you got

You say it’s hard, feel sorry for yourself
And I don’t know why you
You take it out on everybody else

No, I don’t know why you wonder why
Wonder why, wonder why
You’re alone at night, when they’re all up on ya
You know I tried, but you won’t call me back
So I just stay quiet

Ooh, everybody loves a show
Lights on, they all go home
You won’t let anybody close
That high five is all you got
Ooh, they keep saying you’re the best
You ask and they say, “Yeah”
Ooh, when you add up what is left
That high five is all you got

A-a-alright, don’t you get tired of looking for high fives?
A-a-alright, don’t you get tired of looking for high fives?
A-a-alright, don’t you get tired of, don’t you get tired of

And you wonder why, wonder why
No one’s by your side, by your side
When the room goes quiet

Ooh, everybody loves a show
Lights on, they all go home
You won’t let anybody close
That high five is all you got
Ooh, they keep saying you’re the best
You ask and they say, “Yeah”
Ooh, when you add up what is left
That high five is all you got
