Lorde’s “Liability” Song

Hello, all! I just wanted to share this song by Lorde, “Liability.” She’s only 20 years old, but I like her music a lot. And I love her new singles, the other one is “Greenlight”]. But “Liability” is a beautifulΒ and a sad song. I’ve listened to it several times now and will continue to do so. Β Besides all the other emotions, it sounds like an introvert’s song. What say you? Do you agree? I posted both the lyrics and the Youtube links below this message. Enjoy! I hope you like it. πŸ™‚

“Liability”

One, two

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
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

They’re gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun
You’re all gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun

  1. Definitely an Introvert’s song. Hard to believe she is so young and yet experiencing and expressing such depth. I do some of this myself – to this day – withdrawing into my own absorption with self, even though my self is demanding – at least I have learned to tolerate its demands. I won’t be rejected, there.
