400 Lux - Lorde

400 Lux

Pure Heroine
pop electronic indie pop indietronica art pop


“400 Lux” is a slow-burning track with a sunny ambience about driving home with another during a sunrise and enjoying…each other. It’s the second track off of Lorde’s debut LP Pure Heroine. It was debuted on her live tour. A lux is a unit of measurement for light and illumination, and a sunrise or sunset is about 400 luxs on a clear day. The sunny ambience and the lyrics about driving match this tone.

400 Lux - Lorde

[Verse:]
We're never done with killing time
Can I kill it with you?
Till the veins run red and blue
We come around here all the time
Got a lot to not do, let me kill it with you


[Pre-Chorus:]
You pick me up and take me home again
Head out the window again
We're hollow like the bottles that we drain
You drape your wrists over the steering wheel
Pulses can drive from here
We might be hollow, but we're brave

[Chorus:]
And I like you
I love these roads where the houses don't change
And I like you
Where we can talk like there's something to say
And I like you
I'm glad that we stopped kissing the tar on the highway
And I like you
We move in the tree streets
I'd like it if you stayed

[Verse 2:]
Now we're wearing long sleeves, and the heating comes on
You buy me orange juice
We're getting good at this
Dreams of clean teeth
I can tell that you're tired
But you keep the car on
While you're waiting out front

You pick me up and take me home again
Head out the window again
We're hollow like the bottles that we drain
You drape your wrists over the steering wheel
Pulses can drive from here
We might be hollow, but we're brave

And I like you
I love these roads where the houses don't change
And I like you
Where we can talk like there's something to say
And I like you
I'm glad that we stopped kissing the tar on the highway
And I like you
We move in the tree streets
I'd like it if you stayed

We're never done with killing time
Can I kill it with you?
Till the veins run red and blue
We come around here all the time
Got a lot to not do, let me kill it with you

And I like you
I love these roads where the houses don't change
And I like you
Where we can talk like there's something to say
And I like you
I'm glad that we stopped kissing the tar on the highway
And I like you
We move in the tree streets
I'd like it if you stayed
