Hospital - Lorde

The Experience: Friends wait for each other at the hospital - as we grow up, we get hurt, I wish we could always stay young.
The Meaning of Lorde's Hospital mixes Lorde's favorite themes: friends who stick around for each other, waiting for you to get well. This is not some glamour-TV world but our real-time ordinary world, a world so not picture-perfect we need ambulances and hospitals. And the real people (unlike the ones on TV) don't make a tragedy out of everything - they can be laughing in the ambulance. The other typical theme of Lorde is this: life goes on, we get older, we get new hurts and we need new hospitalizations - sings, the real fun was when we were young... Let's go back. We all wish we could. 

Ask Yourself: Which of your friends would really still think about you when you're sick at the Hospital? 


LYRICS:

We were down in the hospital
Waiting for you to get well
In the ambulance you're laughing
The real fun was when we were young
Let's go back
