(Go back and tell it)

Please could you be tender and I will sit close to you
Let's give it a minute before we admit that we're through
Guess this is the winter
Our bodies are young and blue
I'm at Jungle City, it's late and this song is for you

'Cause 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
Yeah, I guess I should go

Hard feelings
These are what they call hard feelings of love
When the sweet words and fevers all leave us right here in the cold, oh oh
Alone with the hard feelings of love
God, I wish I believed you when you told me this was my ho-o-ome

I light all the candles
Got flowers for all my rooms
I care for myself the way I used to care about you
These days, we kiss and we keep busy
The waves come after midnight
I call from underwater
Why even try to get right?
When you've outgrown a lover (oh-oh)
The whole world knows but you (oh-oh)
It's time to let go of this endless summer afternoon

Hard feelings
These are what they call hard feelings of love
When the sweet words and fevers all leave us right here in the cold, oh oh
Alone with the hard feelings of love
God, I wish I believed you when you told me this was my ho-o-ome

Three years, loved you every single day, made me weak
It was real for me, yup, real for me
Now I'll fake it every single day 'til I don't need fantasy, 'til I feel you leave
But I still remember everything, how we'd drift buying groceries
How you'd dance for me
I'll start letting go of little things 'til I'm so far away from you, far away from you, yeah

"What is this tape?"
"This is my favorite tape"

Bet you wanna rip my heart out
Bet you wanna skip my calls now
Well, guess what? I like that
'Cause I'm gonna mess your life up
Gonna wanna tape my mouth shut
Look out, lovers

We're L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S
Generation
L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S
Generation
All fuckin' with our lover's heads
Generation

Bet you wanna rip my heart out
Bet you wanna skip my calls now
Well, guess what? I like that
'Cause I'm gonna mess your life up
Gonna wanna tape my mouth shut
Look out, Lovers

We're L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S
Generation
L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S (look out, lovers)
Generation
All fuckin' with our lover's heads
Generation (look out, lovers)

L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S
Generation
L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S
Generation
L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S
Generation
L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S
Generation
L-O-V-E-L-E-S-S

    My InterpretationWhen did we become a commitment-phobic society, of people who prefer detached hookups with strangers, than sex with someone they love? Having a partner, a relationship, that stands the test of time is one of the most pleasurable and rewarding things in life. Lorde's generation want love, but they don't know a thing or two about it.

    She's taking aim at her generation. All of these twenty-something kids who's perception of love has been so screwed up by the divorce endemic of the baby-boomer generation, and the false cliches peddled to them in film.

    It's a fun pop song, with a very dark undertone. "Loveless" is like the ultimate fuck you, a girl who has been slighted by her ex, who will not be silenced. Who refuses to fade as soon as her man closes his eyes.

    My InterpretationA loveless generation. That sums it up.

    We don't know how to GIVE love or be in love anymore.

    Instead, we're all hung up on playing silly little games (skipping calls, kissing to keep distracted from our real problems, fuckin' with our lovers heads).

    Yep, that sounds about right.
