Team lyrics by Lorde


Genre * Year/Genre/Male or Female Vocal
Producer * Damian Smith

Unlike the original version of this song, there will be a hi-hat in the intro.
From bars 3 to 9, it will be on beats 2 and 4, then from bar 9 ("send the call
out") until the drums kick in on bar 13, it will be on every beat as there'll be
an acceleration in tempo as mentioned further down in the "Tempo" area of the

Wait 'til you're announced.
We've not yet lost all our graces.
The hounds will stay in chains.
Look upon Your greatness and she'll send the call out.
Send the call out. [15x]

Verse 1:
Call all the ladies out.
They're in their finery.
A hundred jewels on throats.
A hundred jewels between teeth.
Now bring my boys in.
Their skin in craters like the moon.
The moon we love like a brother while he glows through the room
Dancin' around the lies we tell,
Dancin' around big eyes as well, aah aah.
Even the comatose, they don't dance and tell.

We live in cities you'll never see on screen.
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things.
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams,
And you know we're on each other's team.

I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air, so there.

Verse 2:
So all the cups got broke, shards beneath our feet, but it wasn't my fault,
And everyone's competing for a love they won't receive,
'Cause what this palace wants is release.

Repeat chorus

Hook 2:
I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air,
So there.
I'm kind of older than I was when I rebelled without a care,
So there.

Repeat chorus

We're on each other's team.
And you know we're on each other's team.
We're on each other's team.
And you know, and you know, and you know.
