The Most Painfully Relatable Lyrics From The Melodrama Album


Lorde’s new album was so heartbreaking to listen to but what struck me the most was how true it all was.

This album could have been written by, or about, any of us.

Here are some of the most “me too” lyrics.



I’m acting like I don’t see every ribbon you used to tie yourself to me.

These are the games of the weekend, we pretend that we just don’t care. But we care. What will we do when we’re sober?

I overthink your punctuation use. Not my fault, it’s just a thing that my mind do.

Our thing progresses, I call and you come through. I blow all my friends to sit in hell with you.

Baby really hurt me, I’m crying in the taxi. He don’t wanna know me, says he made the big mistake of dancing in my storm.

They say, “you’re a little much for me, you’re a liability.”

So they pull back, make other plans, I understand, I’m a liability.

Every perfect summer is eating me alive until you’re gone.

Let’s give it a minute before we admit that we’re through.

I remember the rush, when “forever” was us, before all of the winds of regret and mistrust. Now we sit in your car and our love is a ghost. Well I guess I should go.

When you’ve outgrown a lover, the whole world knows but you.

You’re walking out to be a good man for someone else.

All of the things we’re taking, cause we are young and we’re ashamed, send us to perfect places.

All the nights spent off our faces, trying to find these perfect places, but what the fuck are perfect places anyway?
