Jukebox Friday

Liability – Lorde

Dear Lorde, you are such a spectacularly strange creature. Sometimes she’s a little too weird for me, but then few of her songs, they would have me on my knees, because they touch some part inside of me. I think that’s the magic of Lorde, she’s all kinds of extreme. And you either love her like crazy or you couldn’t care less, and you can be both at the same time. After her wildly successful first single ‘Royal’, she’s now back with her second album ‘Melodrama’. I haven’t had the chance to listen to the whole album yet. Another thing with Lorde’s music is that it really requires time to digest. I’m currently still digesting ‘Liability’, and I love it. It’s really short, but the lyrics… I guess they would tug and pull at the heart strings of all the beautiful little freaks out there, including me. Just know this, for the right person, you would never be a liability, or too much.

I know, a bit melancholy for the weekend. In case you wanna get into the groove, I recommend another Lorde song, a slightly older one. Happy Friday!

Lyrics for Liability

Baby really hurt me
Crying in the taxi
He don’t wanna know me
Says he made the big mistake of dancing in my storm
Says it was poison
So I guess I’ll go home
Into the arms of the girl that I love
The only love I haven’t screwed up
She’s so hard to please
But she’s a forest fire
I do my best to meet her demands
Play at romance, we slow dance
In the living room, but all that a stranger would see
Is one girl swaying alone
Stroking her cheek
They say, “You’re a little much for me
You’re a liability
You’re a little much for me”
So they pull back, make other plans
I understand, I’m a liability
Get you wild, make you leave
I’m a little much for
E-a-na-na-na, everyone
The truth is I am a toy that people enjoy
‘Til all of the tricks don’t work anymore
And then they are bored of me
I know that it’s exciting
Running through the night, but
Every perfect summer’s
Eating me alive until you’re gone
Better on my own
They say, “You’re a little much for me…
They’re gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun
You’re all gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun
