No Better - Lorde


The Experience: Summer holidays make you feel like it's shameful to be underneath the ceiling, so we race to be outside. Summer comes with sunburns, it's hot and humid (especially in Lorde's Auckland, the New Zealand summer). At the same time we know it all comes and goes, so make the most of it! Have your fun, do your thing, do it well.
Lyric Video: 


The Meaning of No Better is more of a description of Lorde's holiday mood than a story told in lyrics: teens together (strength in our numbers) out driving (we roll in, it's shameful to be underneath the ceiling, I see you happy in the front seat). The weather leaves their sweat stick to the seats of the cars. Days without classes or homework go past aimlessly (No one can be bothered, I forget the mallets from the lessons that I went to) and Lorde realizes that days go by (the days are getting colder), but more than that life is passing by (We're getting dead) but sings back it's the right way, because she's and her friends will go all the way, have your fun, do your thing. Make sure you don't just let days go by, Lorde sings: make the best of it, do your thing, do it well!

Ask Yourself: What do you get out of (be it summer or winter) holidays? They come, go, and what did they add to your life?


LYRICS:
We roll in every summer 
When there’s strength in our numbers
And your breath’s hot and gross 
But I kiss you like a lover
Like stick to the seats of the cars of mongerito
I forget the mallets from the lessons that I went to.
And Jamie picks fights 
But the weekend’s short lived
Because no one can be bothered 
When it’s humid like this
And we roll in every summer 
Like it’s shameful to be underneath the ceiling 
Or a roof truck come out and steal our thunder

Now the days are getting colder
And the burning of our limbs 
Doesn’t happen quite as bad and the burnings dry skin.
Deep in the fantasies 
And dreams of the wits to like the movies
That we watch that pretend it wasn’t winter
And everywhere we go 
I can feel the subtle taste 
Of the Dtalk groan 
And the locker room where we stayed
And you’re no better at swimming 
Than you were in the beginning 
But you come over at night 
And we practice all the breathing.

Go all the way,
Have your fun, have it all
This will take you down
Get through the days
Do your thing, do it well
This will take you down

Go all the way
Have your fun, have it all
This will take you down
Get through the days
Do you your thing, do it well
This will take you down.

I’ll pull the trick if I want to
I’ll pull the trick and it comes true
I’m chewing gum and it’s killing me
We’re getting dead and it’s the right way to do it
I see you happy in the front seat
I see you with all of your front teeth
You’re allergic but you never said
We’re getting dead and it’s the right way

Go all the way
Have your fun, have it all
This will take you down
Get through the days
Do your thing, do it well
This will take you down

Go all the way
Have your fun, have it all
This will take you down
Get through the days
Do your thing, do it well
This will take you down
