Tennis Court Lyrics

[Verse 1: Lorde]
Don't you think that it's
Boring how people talk?
Making smart with their words again
Well, I'm bored
Because
I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killing it
Never not chasing a million things I want
And I am
Only as young as the minute is, full of it
Getting pumped up on the little bright things I bought
But I know they'll never own me (Yeah)

[Chorus: Lorde]
Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form
Showing people how little we care (Yeah)
We're so happy
Even when we're smiling out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)

[Verse 2: Lorde]
Pretty soon, I'll be getting
On my first plane
I'll see the veins of my city
Like they do in space
But my head's
Filling up fast with the wicked games, up in flames
How can I f**k with the fun again when I'm
Known?
And my
Boys trip me up with their heads again, loving them
Everything's cool when we're all in line for the throne
But I know it's not forever (Yeah)

[Chorus: Lorde]
Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form
Showing people how little we care (Yeah)
We're so happy
Even when we're smiling out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)

[Bridge: Lorde]
It looked all right in the pictures (Yeah)
Getting caught's half of the trip, though, isn't it? (Yeah)
I'll fall apart, with all my heart (Yeah)
And you could watch from your window (Yeah)
Haha
Yeah, you could watch from your window

[Chorus: Lorde]
Baby, be the class clown
I'll be the beauty queen in tears
It's a new art form
Showing people how little we care (Yeah)
We're so happy
Even when we're smiling out of fear
Let's go down to the tennis court
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)

[Outro: Lorde]
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)
Let's go down to the tennis court
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)
Let's go down to the tennis court
And talk it up like, "Yeah" (Yeah)
