“Perfect Places” – Lorde [YouTube Audio Single]

LYRICS

Lorde “Perfect Places” Lyrics

Every night, I live and die
Feel the party to my bones
Watch the wasters blow the speakers
Spill my guts beneath the outdoor light
It’s just another graceless night
I hate the headlines and the weather
I’m 19 and I’m on fire
But when we’re dancing I’m alright
It’s just another graceless night

Are you lost enough?
Have another drink, get lost in us
This is how we get notorious, oh
‘Cause I don’t know
If they keep tellin’ you where to go
I’ll blow my brains out to the radio, oh

All of the things we’re taking
‘Cause we are young and we’re ashamed
Sends us to perfect places
All of our heroes fading
Now I can’t stand to be alone
Let’s go to perfect places

Every night, I live and die
Meet somebody, take ’em home
Let’s kiss and then take off our clothes
It’s just another graceless night

‘Cause all of the things we’re taking
‘Cause we are young and we’re ashamed
Sends us to perfect places
All of our heroes fading
Now I can’t stand to be alone
Let’s go to perfect places

All the nights spent off our faces
Trying to find these perfect places
What the fuck are perfect places anyway?
All the nights spent off our faces
Trying to find these perfect places
What the fuck are perfect places anyway?
All the nights spent off our faces
Trying to find these perfect places
What the fuck are perfect places anyway?

Lorde has shared another song from her upcoming album, Melodrama. Listen to “Perfect Places” above, courtesy of her YouTube. The track sets a smokey vibe with strong pop sensibility in the dance-friendly grooves and uplifting choruses.

Lorde shared some insight about the track on her Facebook page:

today, PERFECT PLACES is out in the world. this is a special one. i was living in new york during summer last year, writing melodrama – i’d ride across the brooklyn bridge every day, or sit on the subway uptown in the heat, then go back home to new zealand winter for a week at a time to party with my friends. my life was like a weird little etch-a-sketch i kept scribbling on and resetting. and all last summer, i couldn’t shake the feeling that everyone i knew or saw was searching for something – trying to transcend the news and the screaming pavements, drinking that one drink hoping it’d get them someplace higher. this song comes from that endless cycle of evenings and the violent heat of the summer. it took us a very long time to get right, from an aching piano demo to where is it now. it’s close to my heart. i hope you like it.

Melodrama is scheduled to be released on June 16, 2017. Pick it up on Amazon.

So far, Lorde has shared a couple other songs from this LP: “Liability” and “Green Light.”
