Green light lyrics


Green light


I do my makeup 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 liar

Those great whites, they have big teeth
Oh 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 'em back to you

All those rumors, they have big teeth
Oh 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

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

Do you think she gave 5 stars to her Uber driver?

I would take Lorde over Bruno every day. Now, where's that grammy?

we're waiting for it that greenlight we want it

Melodrama is just like the age of romanticism that expresses emotions and it is not just an album, it is art... the most remarkable art ever made

Lana Del Ray needs to come get her daughter to stop dabbing on the sidewalk and dancing on her Uber driver's car in her prom dress after her date didn't show up.

I'm going to be completely honest: Though Bruno Mars' "24K Magic" is great and he definitely worked hard on it, Melodrama deserved the grammy for album of the year. It's lyrics are so smart, the entire album is like an insane roller coaster ride. If not Melodrama then DAMN should've won the grammy.

I love when she dances. It's not traditional but it's like she's feeling her music go through her.

my favorite part is when she loses herself dancing to the song on top of the car while the uber driver vapes in the corner

Why does this song make me want to get up and dance but cry hysterically at the same time? Thank you Lorde for reminding us what genuinely​ beautiful music is again.

i love how the driver is just standing next to the car waiting for lorde to finish dancing.

"is she done yet? *takes a glance* oh- not yet."

She really shows emotion when the words come out of her mouth. So angry, in love and natural. She would be an amazing actress to be honest. She could play a desperate girl thats in love with some guy in her high school who hooks up with her only best friend and then she plans on killing her. Only her because she will always love him. Tarantino could transform this in his way of film. Oh my god, I should sell this idea...

I wanna walk into a bathroom and find a guy playing the piano

Teddy Marian

I like that she isn't ashamed to say 'I'm not over you', I LOVE that she's saying '..but I'm really excited to get there (being over you)'. After a break up it's important we take these steps, even if our heart's still at a red light.

At first, I wasn't really feeling it but this is one of those songs that become awesome on the second or third listening

Let's just appreciate the fact that this is the exact representation of how everyone would like to dance, when walking down the streets with them headphones plugged in and this song playing quite loud.

This is the kind of music you dance to by yourself in your room with earbuds in

Shaun Louis

I'm no poetic genius but I'm 99.99% sure those 'great' whites she speaks of - with the big teeth - are the white 'lies' that spread as rumors and end up coming back to bite you. which in this case - shes refering to his 'claim' to 'love the beach'.

it's funny because most of the hate comments are coming from Halsey fans, Melanie fans, 21 pilots fans, etc. sit down, children, Lorde is the original edgy kid.

People change and so does music. So dont expect Pure Heroin pt2 please.

I don't think this is generic at all - it's just a happier, more upbeat version of her usual sound. It's brilliant

i don't think she's selling out - she's just getting started!

i get it when people talk about how she doesn't sound like her previous songs, but that was her first album so far. she's yet to reach her full potential and find her style, so experimenting with different music will happen... who knows, maybe she might find this what she loves and stick with it?
many artists have been switching between styles - it's a part of them figuring out themselves too. you're always complaining about how people put labels on others before even knowing them... you're doing the same for her. instead of trying to limit what her music should be, let her change and progress and eventually become better at what she does.

also, this is catchy. very, very catchy. plus, you can still hear many of her ongoing storytelling elements in it.

Lorde is a pop artist. Not typical pop but still pop. This song is extremely unique in the sense that it's like a song in a song in a song but it still features those low voice lorde vocals. She wanted to talk about her first major heartbreak and she wanted to feel herself while doing it so she added a beat to it. It's good.

The melodrama in the comments is nauseating. You realize people grow and 90% of the time so does their music taste. I don't like the same songs or music I liked a 16, and through different experiences your music taste can change. Having been 16 and in a depressed state, Lorde's style appealed to me, it spoke to me as I'm sure it did and may still do with many of you. But now that I'm older and in a different situation and a different mood, I wouldn't connect with that same style as I once did. I'm saying this to say that Lorde is older, her situation and state of mind are probably way different now that it used to be. So let her make a song that you may consider "pop", "mainstream", "not the Lorde I know". You don't know her and what she's like now so if she wants to try a new style or something that's just a few degrees away from her last albums, LET HER! It's her career, her life, and her feelings. If you wanted to deem yourself a true fan, even if you don't like the song, support her or at least stop being a baby about it.

A great comeback, a new style, everything!!! she was 16-17 when she dropped Pure Heroine. Of course she had to change because she's 20 now. I'm loving this and I'm glad that she's back again. I'm waiting for Melodrama, it's her career and she can do whatever she wants with it, if you want the "dark Lorde", stay in Pure Heroine and let us enjoy her music.

yall shes said in interviews (this morning on triple j in australia) that her album is a mix of her old and new style of music. she's very particular and LOVES to perfect the beat and rhythm of her songs -- base sound to her is very important. her album is going to have aLOT of her original style as well as the new (which imo, is still really good!) artists evolve! but she's said herself that she still very much has, and loves, the slow soft beats we got in pure heroine

Omg this is genius (beautiful, lyrically amazing). The green light in this song is like the green light in the Great Gatsby in which the green light in the Great Gatsby symbolized hopes and dreams. This song is basically chasing those dreams without anybody stopping you. I love Lorde so much

Green Light is the poppiest song on the album
"This is as pop-dance as it gets," she told Mistajam. "We were just in the studio, mashing around on the piano and... that's what it is."
"We didn't turn it into the single, it was just born that way."
The 20-year-old added the new album was more varied than her debut. "There's a lot of beats again but there's also instruments that are going to surprise people."

I don't get why people always complain and are like "This is different. This is not her/him/them."
You know people grow. Tastes change. Many people enjoy different sounds, different genres. They don't always want to play the same stuff. Many people love diversity. Let her sing this song and maybe a couple more like this one.
But wait for the whole album until you make your final opinion about it. Don't judge because of one song (what's more important: don't judge at all).

If I were a musician I would probably try different stuff too.

"I realized this is that drunk girl at the party dancing around crying about her ex-boyfriend who everyone thinks is a mess. That’s her tonight and tomorrow she starts to rebuild. And that’s the song for me." Lorde is my spirit animal
