I drove through the desert last night I carried the weight of our last fight Elvis singing "don't be cruel" And I wonder if you feel it too It's like we're going under
Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda county line The question of my heart came to my mind
If I go on With you by my side Can it be The way it was When we met Did you forget all about those golden nights?
Maybe a thief stole your heart Or maybe we just drifted apart I remember driving In my daddy's car to the airfield Blanket on the hood, backs against the windshield Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust That paradise is buried in the dust
If I go on With you by my side Can it be The way it was When we met Did you forget all about those golden nights? (The way it was)
All of our plans have fallen through Sometimes a dream, it don't come true
If we go on Can it be (can it be) The way it was When we met Did you forget all about them golden nights?
If I go on With you by my side Can it be The way it was My heart is true Girl, it's just you I'm thinking of Can it be the way it was?
Maybe a thief stole your heart

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.
