Lorde - Flicker (Kanye West Rework) Lyrics




I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
It keeps my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fight
And my necklace is of rope, I tie it and untie it

And now people talk to me, but nothing ever hits home
People talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes
I’m done with it (ooh)

[Chorus:]
This is the start of how it ever ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I'm speeding up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We’re at the start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars, there’s so much down here
So I just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

I dream all year, but they're not the sweet kinds
And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time

And now people talk to me I'm slipping out of reach now
People talk to me, and all their faces blur
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I'm locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me
I’m done with it (ooh)

[Chorus]

And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat

Lorde Flicker (Kanye West Rework) Comments
  1. 현pro

    오랜만에 지니어스 연승이형 탈락소감 보고 뽕차서 찾아 들어옴

  2. Laynce Andrey Gonzales

    Jan 2020 ? wellp I guess I'm in *A World Alone*

  3. Arely Amairani

    People is like "Stop saying Kanye's music is bad", but I don't see anyone saying that.

  4. Сигидик

    Серьёзно?

  5. ezreal

    hate Kanye as a person, but i have to admit-- musically he's extremely gifted.

    Valentino Z

    I think it needed a fast hi hat sound.

    nikiminiki

    please hate his music too, jungkook's thighs 🤮

    ezreal

    @nikiminiki i tend not to involve a person's character with their music, as it gets too complicated but i appreciate your sentiment :) nonetheless i do still enjoy his music, my apologies

    nikiminiki

    i won't talk to someone named jungkook's thighs, my apologies

    ezreal

    @nikiminiki to each their own. we each have our own opinion we're entitled to :)

  6. Karina Felipe

    Kanye’s addition to this very song was MEANT TO BE.

  7. Basic channel

    Lorde s version is better

  8. BubbleTea Lulu

    It should be on spotify

  9. Jolly Plague Doctor

    I don't even enjoy this sort of music,but this particular song just puts me in a weird trance and I absolutely love it. It makes me feel so relaxed,and it brings me comfort.

  10. Moriyarty Holmes

    2:44 That piano background😍 badass with Elegance!

  11. :장래희망투보

    ???: 이 어떤... 평범함이 비범함을 이긴다는 게 상당히 어려운 일이네... 사실은 이 두 분을 제가 극복하고 싶었어요. 이 지니어스 게임에서 '나는 이 사람들을 꼭 극복을 해야겠다'라는 생각을 하면서 게임을 계속 해왔던 거고. 근데 그걸 못 하고 가는 건 사실 조금 안타깝고 아쉽죠. 그렇지만 두 사람 모두 정말, 정말 뛰어난 사람들이다. 그러니까 현민이 너는, 나는 네가 되고 싶었다는 거를 꼭 어...알았지? 잘할 수 있어 현민아.

  12. Jday12

    As much as I love the original song, I do feel like this version really brings out the feeling of the Hunger Games. The vocals and instruments compliment the movie scores even more so, which helps connect this song to the movie. Kanye really made this song so much better. Don’t think about his antics when listening to this, just think of what he’s done to improve the song.
    This is years late, but I felt it should be said.

  13. Doni Davis

    I like this version waaaaaaaaaay better. The beat and background instruments fit the lyrics so much better.

  14. Rhiannon Evans

    JUST CAUSE YOU DONT LIKE KANYE DOSENT MEAN HE ISNT A FUCKING GENIUS WHEN IT COMES TO MUSIC. I LOVE Lorde, but I personally feel that this version of her song is stronger.

  15. Baeek

    I love this version so much. It lets the songs sounds more epic and deeper

  16. boring.

    Gemini deriving the sound we needed.

  17. Christopher Hull

    Lorde is a great musician but this is trash. Sorry.

    Baeek

    Smh then you don't know good music. This song and this version id amazing.

  18. Exo-l Arianator

    Taylor dont like this

    nikiminiki

    nobody cares about snakes

  19. Multi fandom Edits

    Try the chorus at 0.75

  20. Nguyễn Phương

    I'm a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
    And the scars that mark my body, they're silver and gold
    My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
    It keeps my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
    I move through town, I'm quiet like a fire
    And my necklace is of opal, I tie it and untie it
    And our people talk to me, but nothing ever hits
    So people talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes
    I'm going in (ooh)
    This is the start of how it all ever ends
    They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
    I'm speeding up and this is the
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
    We rip the start, the colors disappear
    I never watch the stars there's so much down here
    So I just try to keep up with them
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
    I dream all year, but they're not the same kinds
    And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time
    And now people talk to me I'm slipping out of reach now
    People talk to me, and all their faces blur
    But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
    And I'm locking up everyone that ever laid a finger on me
    I'm going in (ooh)
    This is the start of how it all ever ends
    They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
    I'm speeding up and this is the
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
    We rip the start, the colors disappear
    I never watch the stars there's so much down here
    So I just try to keep up with them
    Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
    And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
    Sparking up my heart
    And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat

  21. David Garrido

    Anyone know where the piano is from? I love Kanye and know he’s big with sampling, but is this original just for the song or?

  22. Ronald Weasley

    Taylor Swift dance to this song in AMA's :v

  23. Aida Moghaddam

    I loved this even more than the original one even though I dislike kanye so much !! NO OFFENSE

  24. saralovestaylor

    great but k*ny* sucks ass

    saralovestaylor

    @Tommy Gibinson *used to. She hates him now. He ripped off her stage set :')

    Tommy Gibinson

    @saralovestaylor How can you say that when Kanye's been using that stage design for years lol? I take it you have no idea what you're talking about

    saralovestaylor

    ​@Tommy Gibinson He copied her one detail for detail. I really dont give a fuck if hes been using the general idea but his looked exactly the same as hers.

    Tommy Gibinson

    @saralovestaylor yes and his has always looked the same, she copied him, as if you know what kanye's stage design looked a decade ago lmfao, stick to your fake sad white girl music

    David Savage

    @saralovestaylor He didnt rip her off at all. Es Devlin created that stage based on a set from the 20th century sometime.

  25. Kelvin Leung

    Much better than the original

  26. MARcγ DERAs

    obviously if lorde ALLOWED kanye to make another version of this song and POSTED IT ON HER OWN CHANNEL, she thought he'd do a good job with it. she thought right

  27. A Crazy Dream

    Love this song

  28. Shadow Fox

    Honestly, I really don't like Kanye West's music. At all. But this rework... it's just really beautiful. Love it. Possibly not as much as the original version, but still. Truly amazing.

    Tommy Gibinson

    By not like his music I assume you've not heard it. He's one of the best producers of all time. Go listen to songs like Power or All of the lights, Ghost town, Reborn etc

    Shadow Fox

    Tommy Gibinson Ever heard of opinions? No, I don't like his music. Apart from this rework.

    Tommy Gibinson

    @Shadow Fox Listen to the song ghost town, listen to it with an open mind. You've only heard his hits, how can you not like them lol Stronger, Power, Fourfiveseconds, Gold digger, heartless. You're lying to yourself

  29. Sam Money

    Now Watch the Throne drop

  30. Aleksander Lima

    Love songs! Wow! the voice sex......:)

  31. Tennyson Whiting

    Why they gotta take this off Spotify???

  32. -Null -

    Lorde and Kanye?
    Damn this was an unlikely pair....
    But at the same time, this beat was sick!

  37. Taneeka smith

    I love the song

  38. Иван

    Great truth. ♎ with you

  39. Daniel Brice Reid

    Check Red Florde, Do you see him in the mirror?

  40. ONLINENAME

    this is what led me into the kanye rabbit hole. before i always thought kanye was some sort of clown because of his representation in mainstream media, but boy oh boy his music is so goddamn legendary

  41. TPBGirl

    I didn't know Kanye did this kind of work for others like Lorde. This is pretty bad ass. They need to work togerher more often. I LUV IT!
    KUDOS KANYE!

  42. Elizabeth Koeppen

    I love the original and can't say I'm a fan of Kanye but this is actually pretty good. Has a nice eerie feel to it.

  43. Ron Robben

    Come now you say you love me know that I am not a toy to play with ok

  44. Cagro Cagri

    underrated singer

  45. Abinadí Moreno

    Kanye West did justice to this song! The both versions are amazing but I like a little bit more this one

  46. Madisyn Yarham

    2018 anyone😂

  47. Landa

    I'm gonna be clear about this, I didn't quite like this rework, I thought the original was perfect on it's own (which it is)...






    Until I heard the piano at 2:44...

  48. ASIR RISA

    Niiiiic

  49. Me, Vale

    0:46 Chills went down my spine, holy crap!

  50. Abeerah Mehreen

    THIS IS FREAKING AMAZING. WHY AM I LISTENING TO THIS JUST NOW?

    You have to admit though, Lorde and Kanye are two incredibly talented people. The piano especially was amazing.

  51. Amy Ashjari

    omg when the piano comes in its BEAUTIFUL. i didn't mind the original but this version is incredible and I can't believe I've never heard this til now

  52. Yohann Gorichon

    Very beautiful song ❤❤❤👌👌👌👍👍👍😊😊😊

  53. Timothy Cole

    Michael Jackson called. He wants his elephant back.

  54. Daniel Mugan

    anyone know what snare that is on the hook?

  55. The Leo Wolf

    This is really good
    (Edit) I forgot to put the d in good

  56. S A ᴎ D R A

    I need a instrumental!

  57. Master Of Puppets

    much blows

  58. Erika Miranda

    He was payed to do it for all you haters god damn just accept it u don't always get what u want that's how life is😵

  59. Jhonatan Lopez

    I would love Kanye as a producer of her next album

  60. Shermaine Julia

    2018?
    Katniss and Peeta ❤

  61. Savvas Hudson

    I’m wondering why do people call Kanye a Genius when it’s obviously Björk who inspired him for this remix and she was supposed to be called the genius here🤔🤔

  62. Xazal Ozcan

    kanye is a god

  63. Saqib

    This is ten times better then original

  64. Artist Heart

    This is actually really good. They took out some of the instrumental parts the music, but left the beat in it. It lets have a kinda calmer, yet fiercer tone to the music.

  65. SlowrollYTBFF 1

    I just watched the mocking jay part one so I obviously love this

  66. Swiftie For life

    I wonder what Taylor thinks XD

  67. Muammal Rizki

    What kind of this music ?

  68. Nature

    And I'm still listening to this who else?

  69. Saqib

    Kanye's a Genius

  70. sardi holmes

    Kanye the Yezuus

  71. Deniz Akyol

    This is the start of how it all ends

    one of my proudest nuts

  74. Shelby Drain

    I can feel lorded lyrics in my bones

  75. Poneisha Parker

    Hauntingly Beautiful

  76. Rodney Espinosa

    I hate Kanye because I'm a Swiftie but the beat of this song is lit. I love it.

  77. Victoria Black

    this is incredible, why have I never heard this rework?? I love Kanye and Lorde so much

  78. Madeko

    I think it is okay but lordes songs are good enough so no need for someone like kanye to touch her music.

    cellphone bwahahaha

    Madeko did you know Lorde didn’t like the original that’s why she asked Kanye to do a rework.

  79. Larrell Lewis

    Why am I just hearing this today? Lordes voice over a Kanye West production...sign me the fuck up

  80. Leeloo H

    Beautiful. A real bliss.
    Thanks K. WEST AND LORDE. 💙

  81. Alex Swedock

    xddd gay fish I have a Gold reddit

  82. kaichey

    That was actually really cool!

  83. Anita Tiraborelli

    three six mafia.jim jones and lorde rock it out!!!!

  84. Leeloo H

    I'm absolutly not a fan of Kanye but the man is fucking more intelligent than people think. He knows music. He is just under those bad energies in Hollywood. This version is BEAUTIFUL.

  85. Valencia Essex

    love this version 😍😍😍

  86. Carlos Mandu

    love it

  87. NicOny Beauty

    Way better than the original. Sounds better slowed down with the bass 👌🏾👌🏾

  88. jadestar

    everyone is talking about kanye.. but did anyone else notice the floating bubbles ?😂

  89. Miguel Music AJW

    2017 anyone?

  90. Emmanuel Uzochukwu

    YE IS THE GOAT

  91. Quadhead

    Not good.

  92. Katherine Zwick

    This is tremendously good. Kanye really took the spirit of the song and movie and amplified it here. Brilliant.

  93. Sude Naz

    lorde and kanye? its my dream
