Lorde: Green Light Meaning

Song Released: 2017

Green Light Lyrics

Night, midnight
Lose my mind
Night, midnight
Lose my mind
Night, midnight
Lose my mind
Night, midnight
Oh god, I'm clean out of air in my lungs
It's all gone
Played it so nonchalant
It's time we danced with the truth
Move along...

    This song is about someone scorned. The partner has ended things leaving you angry,
    upset and ultimately seeking closure - however everything is very fresh.

    "I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth" - wanting to out the truth on the drama and call them out on what happened

    "Those rumours they have big teeth, hope they bite you" - wanting to see the other person to lose their reputation

    "'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)" - wanting and ready to move on. Wanting the go ahead from the partner to get their stuff and finalise things - but emotionally not ready to let go yet.
