6. “Hard Feelings/Loveless”
This one’s for the aftermath of a heartbreak. Lorde goes in-depth on a breakup and the wreck our emotions go through. The sonic sounds bring us through this roller-coaster of a track. “I light all the candles // Got flowers for all my rooms. // I care for myself the way I used to care about you // These days, we kiss and we keep busy // The waves come after midnight // I call from underwater. Why even try to get right? // When you’ve outgrown a lover (oh-oh) // The whole world knows but you (oh-oh) // It’s time to let go of this endless summer afternoon.” Around the four-minute mark, just when you thought the song concluded, the second piece begins. “Loveless” is another anthem for the trials and errors in love that us millennials encounter frequently. Thank you, Lorde.
