Royals lyrics


Royals


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 the torn uptown, no post code envy

But every song's like
Gold teeth
Grey Goose
Tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains
Ball gowns
Trashing the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams

But everybody's like
Crystal
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
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us,
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your 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

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
Tripping in the bathroom
Bloodstains
Ball gowns
Trashing the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams

But everybody's like:
Crystal
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
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux 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

We're better than we've ever dreamed
And I'm in love with being queen

Life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair

And we'll never be royals
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux 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

i remember me and my sister listening to this song, she used to love it. She was just 3, but she sadly died to cancer. I don't want petty for it, this song just reminds me so much of her...
I miss her a lot, but with or without her I'll still go on to make her happy and me.
I'm just an 11 year old trying to make it big in the world with my songs. I haben't uploaded any of them, but I will soon.
Love this song to death, thx for reading this. :)

This song used to be everywhere. I honestly remember 2013 and 2014 when you would go out at shops and restaurants and the car radio, used to be everywhere. Thats why i remember this year. Its not bad, but for damn sure i remember these years for this song being all over. I can still recall going to Dave and Busters, a Chicago car show, the radio(everyday on the same pop channel the family would play) and i can't remember more, but i know there was plenty, and not just me, its a part of my conscience to walk in the Dave and Buster bathroom, with this song on and them having little arcade games in the urinal..lol. Yeah, i know. lol

Too much fame and success too soon for you and you just kind of faded away or burnt out... You want to strive to be like Sir Paul Simon or RiHaanah, my ex-GF

Seems like a pretty nice song. From most of the lyrics, it seems like the intent of the song is to enjoy your current situation and rule at who you are and what you do. 

Pretty impressive for a 17 year old or for anybody for that matter. Not too bad for a 45 year old geologist, either.
