Lorde – Helen of Troy

Lorde – Helen of Troy

You’ve heard it all before —
one minute I was killing ‘em all
And the next, a brown suit wouldn’t let me perform
Typical
So I took a happy face
And it’s coming on like a charm
I don’t wanna get lost, I wanna worship the sun
If you want, you can come

I’m in my own little golden age
But it’s such a pill when they don’t appreciate

So when you smoke that cigarette
Or when you talk shit ‘bout an old friend
I know it’s hard, but do your best
Give yourself a break, have a little faith
Let’s hear it for the girls, living in the modern world

They’re banging on the door —
“Everyone please make way for the girl who looks like she flew in from outer space
Yesterday”
I think I’ll wait it out
My little thing is keeping ’em keen
They could be drinking with you, but they’ll be looking at me
This whole time, I been playing it coy
The city’s falling for me just like I’m Helen of Troy

So when you’re broke, can’t get ahead
Or when you take it out on your boyfriend
I know it’s hard, but do your best
Give yourself a break, have a little faith
Let’s hear it for the girls, living in the modern world
