"Precious Metals" (the assumed title) is an unreleased song by Lorde, most likely from the album Melodrama. She first performed it at a concert in Milwaukee in March 2018.

Background

During an Instagram live story in February, Lorde said:

“I may or may not have dug up a song that we wrote during the Melodrama sessions that didn’t make it. One that I really love.”
It was revealed that the writers of the song were Jack Antonoff and Lorde.

Lyrics

The Chanel, the Dior, and the Prada
Take it on, make a fire in the garden
Sundance kids, so godless
One day it’s gonna be not like this
Black sand on all our beaches
Witchcraft, split lip, and a bee sting
But what I really wanna know is

Do I look like a fool?
'Cause I must be a fool
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do
Do, do
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do
Do, do

The Chanel, the Dior, and the Prada
Give my best to the ones that bother
Take a flight trip, to Jakarta
All the kids at the shows make it louder
All of the feelings and all of the tears are going
All of the secrets and all of the schemes that don't go my way
I wish you’ll come back, didn’t want to run back
Come back, bet you wanna come back
And I’ll find you

Do I look like a fool?
'Cause I must be a fool
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do
Do (ah), do (ah)
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do (ah)
Do (ah), do (ah, ah)
