LYRIC

[Verse 1]
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
(Liar, liar, liar, liar, liar, liar, liar, liar)

[Refrain]
Well, those great whites, they have big teeth
Hope 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
[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
'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

[Verse 2]
Sometimes I wake up in a different bedroom
I whisper things, the city sings 'em back to you

[Refrain]
Well, those rumours, they have big teeth
Hope 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
[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
'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, honey, I'll come get my things, but I can't let go
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
Yes, 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

[Outro]
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it

About "Green Light"

“Green Light” is about Lorde’s first major heartbreak and is “the first chapter of the last two wild, fluorescent years” of Lorde’s life before the song dropped. Over those years, 2015 to 2017, Lorde became an adult and moved away from her “glossy idiot god” teenage-self and “crossed over” to adulthood. In a Facebook post on her 20th birthday, she described 2016 as a “colossal year.”

The song was promoted heavily via the website “imwaitingforit.com” which released teasers of the music video for the track for three days before it officially dropped. One day before the website’s launch, the first teaser was aired as a commercial across New Zealand, Lorde’s home country, and two days before the song dropped, she left clues around specific locations in Auckland, New Zealand, containing lyrics from the song and hints about its title.

It is Lorde’s first solo release since her 2013 debut album Pure Heroine, and since her curation of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay soundtrack. The single’s artwork was painted by Sam McKinniss.
