[Chorus:] How did you know I been waiting for this time to come And though it tastes like for ever it may not stay long? Everywhere it's summer [repeat 4X]
A shaman since before my birth And I came down to rock the earth My mission condition: I give you, you listen I'm syncing in time in parallel In binary, no third return I'm planning intention With love the redemption
No pop, no pop, no pop, no pop We gon' do this thang till the sky just drop Lock into you mind away we rock In a rocket is the eighty seventh astronaut Top of the soul, dove and I got in a hole At the moment they were sayin' It was outta control Strap into your mind Why eyes see some recline You'll see in time your season to shine When the stadium is dark MC's are defined Get ready, on your mark, put your feet on the line The race is on, to space beyond You gon' get there by doin' what you want Sometimes the most famous feel all alone So we trip to a place that we call our home I was known as being spaced and outta my dome Now I know, it all I've known

16-tear-old Lorde wrote the lyrics to "Royals" at home in just half an hour. She was inspired by the "ridiculous, unrelatable, unattainable opulence" that runs through such albums as Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne and Lana Del Rey's Born To Die.
