"The Louvre" is a song from Lorde's sophomore album, Melodrama.

Background

On May 18th, Lorde released the track list for Melodrama and "The Louvre" was the sixth song on the list.

In January 2015, Lorde posted a cryptic tweet that read "Perfect is in the Louvre". This could be a combination of "Perfect Places", "Writer in the Dark" and this song.

Writing and composition

The song had co-production from Flume, along with Jack Antonoff and Lorde herself. The song is assumed to be about the happiness during the beginning of her relationship with James Lowe. Lorde herself commented on the track on a Spinoff Exclusive Podcast saying:

“I wanted to [give the feeling of] just like the big sun-soaked dumbness of falling in love and it’s like your whole head is like glue, it’s amazing. It is like drugs. It’s like ‘I just want to be by you all the time, I just want to listen to you talk and look at your face do all those dumb things that it does when you talk. It’s just like this big dumb joy and it’s intense – and I feel like the instrumentation in that song kind of helped it get there.”

Lyrics

 Well, summer slipped us underneath her tongue
Our days and nights are perfumed with obsession
Half of my wardrobe is on your bedroom floor
Use our eyes, throw our hands overboard

I am your sweetheart psychopathic crush
Drink up your movements, still I can't get enough
I overthink your p-punctuation use
Not my fault, just a thing that my mind do

A rush at the beginning
I get caught up, just for a minute
But lover, you're the one to blame, all that you're doing
Can you hear the violence?
Megaphone to my chest
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it

Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it

Our thing progresses
I call and you come through
Blow all my friendships
To sit in hell with you
But we're the greatest
They'll hang us in the Louvre
Down the back, but who cares - still the Louvre
Okay I know that you are not my type (still I fall)
I'm just the sucker who let you fill her mind (but what about love?)
Nothing wrong with it
Supernatural
Just move in close to me, closer, you'll feel it coasting

A rush at the beginning
I get caught up, just for a minute
But lover, you're the one to blame, all that you're doing
Can you hear the violence?
Megaphone to my chest
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it

Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it
