  • I do my makeup in somebody else's car
    We order different drinks at the same bars
    I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth
    She thinks you love the beach, you're such a damn liar

    Well, those great whites, they have big teeth
    Oh, they bite you
    Thought you said that you would always be in love
    But you're not in love no more
    Did it frighten you
    How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?
    On the light up floor

    But I hear sounds in my mind
    Brand new sounds in my mind
    But honey, I'll be seein' you, ever, I go
    But honey, I'll be seein' you down every road
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it

    'Cause honey I'll come get my things, but I can't let go
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it

    Sometimes I wake up in a different bedroom
    I whisper things, the city sings them back to you

    All those rumors, they have big teeth
    Oh, they bite you
    Thought you said that you would always be in love
    But you're not in love no more
    Did it frighten you
    How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?
    On the light up floor

    But I hear sounds in my mind
    Brand new sounds in my mind
    But honey, I'll be seein' you, ever I go
    But honey, I'll be seein' you down every road
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it

    'Cause honey, I'll come get my things, but I can't let go
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    Oh, honey, I'll come get my things, but I can't let go
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    Yeah, honey, I'll come get my things, but I can't let go
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it

    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
    I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it Writer/s: Ella Yelich O'Connor, Jack Antonoff, Joel Little
