Team lyrics


Team


Wait 'til you’re announced
We’ve not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon your greatness
And she'll send the call out
Send the call out

Call all the ladies out
They’re in their finery
A hundreds jewels on throats
A hundred jewels between teeth
Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother, while he glows through the room

Dancin' around the lies we tell
Dancin' around big eyes as well
Even the comatose they don’t dance and tell

We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run free
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team

I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air,
So there
So all the cups got broke
shards beneath our feet
But it wasn’t my fault
And everyone’s competing for a love they won't receive
'Cause what this palace wants is release

We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run free
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team

I’m kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air
So there
I’m kinda older than I was when I revelled without a care
So there

We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run free
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team
We're on each other's team
And you know, we're on each other's team
We're on each other's team
And you know, and you know, and you know

This is her best song

There's something so enchanting about the sentiment "We're on each other's team".
It's very warm and friendly. Almost loving, but not quite, because as the song's message goes, not everything and everyone receives love.
But it's still a declaration of empathy, of comradery in the shared struggles of life for those that face them.
Kinda similar to "I like that you're lonely, lonely like me...I could be lonely with you." Very pure.

New message! I'm gonna live alone. Buy my own place. Autism won't slow this boy down! Dad has helped me so much during this time of change. Almost everything is in order now. The loan and contract. My Dad and me are a TEAM. Thanks so much Dad! We're on each others team.

This should've been a big HIT. I don't know what happened but this deserves to be more popular.

The first time I watched this video I had the strangest feeling like I had been in that place before or in like a dream or something. Idk why, I can’t describe the feeling I got but when I watched it again and it didn’t happen, I felt nothing. Weird. Eh, it’s probably nothing

I will never understand why this song doesn't have as much recognition as many other worse songs, Team is an absolute masterpiece, one of the best songs I've even listened to for real

When I first listened to this song, I met the love of my life. She was in Lithuania and I the USA. I never felt so alive. I felt like I could fly just how this song made me feel. My life wasn't perfect but because I met an amazing girl I felt like it might just be perfect for the first time . Being rich doesn't always involve money. We are married now and closed the distance!

Lorde is actually pretty beautiful, those exotic looking eyebrows and nose, these deep blue eyes and a long curly hair. That's pretty. And just try to search her photos without makeup, mostly she looks there gorgeous.

I don't care if she's 'not-beautiful' or whatsoever. Most of her music really fit my life, and it's not too upbeat, just fitting me. **I'm sorry if my English is cringy**

Thumbs up if you like Lorde's and Lana Del Rey's music.

I can't understand why people have to divide. I just love them both. They are amazing singers and songwriters. And I'd freak out if they made a song together.

Just watched Miley Cyrus-BB Talk. Had to come here to remind myself that there are young girls with not only talent but a good head on their shoulders.
Don't change, Lorde.

so many of the comments here are about lorde's physical appearance... her job is to sing. she is famous for her voice, not how she looks. she did an awfully good job with this song. and i kinda want to live at or at least visit the portrayed setting... idk there's something rather fascinating/charming to it. if that makes sense.

but the point is shut your hating mouths. k? k.

Why do people think this girl is ulgy? She used to be a 10 out of 10 would bang until we all found out she's actually Randy Marsh.

South Park just gave this girl TONS of free publicity. Just imagine how many people rushed to click her songs after the show ended. Like I did. ............UNBELIEVABLE. lol

GOD IS ALWAYS GOOD, EVEN IF IT FEELS LIKE HE IS NOT HELPING US.
♡†♡
My best friend, who died, used to say, ”Mark, even if I don’t feel good, God is good”.  He told me that even though he was dying, he was never happier in his life--always praising God, always talking about God with me.  Only God can do that.  His name was Ron Williams.  I wrote a song about this; Just Click on my channel name above to check it out.  Thanks and God bless.

I've always thought this was a Lana Del Ray song until now. My whole life is a lie...

I honestly hate the song royals, it's overplayed and annoying. I think this song is much better though, I think it deserves more credit than royals.

This song should be #1 on Billboard Hot 100!

This song is about a interracial relationship. She's calling out all the superficial girls who only judge on looks. Now bring her boy out, he is imperfect (skin looks like craters in the moon). But that is what makes him beautiful, his imperfections make him glow through the room. She's on his team, they are in this together. She is tired of getting told by society what she has to do (how to look, what to wear, what kind of type she should date). Her love is not very pretty and the kind you' never see on screen (TV and media), but they know how to run things.

I know this doesn't have anything to do with the song..but it makes me happy to get likes...I don't comment for attention and honestly I don't expect anyone to like it..but I have spent so much of my life being ignored that getting likes for just commenting what I think and commenting what I say in real life and getting likes just cheers me up..this song made me want to type this sentimental crap..so much power..

I love the fact that her music flies in the face of what is popular today. The entirety of this song points toward her opinion of what is popular in the world and shows that she sees no value in it.

Lorde is either the most pretentious b*tch ever or probably the best unique singer in our decade...I chose to believe the latter, Lorde's lyrics are enchanting and it's something that we can all relate.

This song is doing well on the USA Billboard charts already number 23 and rising! Looks like Lorde might have another hit song!

I think people like her so much cause she relates to the majority. The percentage of people that are stuck living average lives and don't have a ton of money far outnumbers the young, beautiful, and privileged.

Among Justin Bieber, Austin Mahone, Zendaya, all these young "stars", Lorde is the only ARTIST. Her lyrics are deep and meaningful and her videos are full of concept and unified meaning.
