days seem to be long as years

Key Change (3 flats) - Key of Eb

I look for the sun,
Ddim7/Eb  Eb6  Bb7#5  Ebmaj7
but I see none through my tears
D7sus D7 Gm                    Gm(maj7)
Your heart must be like a stone
Gm                            C9
to leave me here all alone
Bb                       Gm7                        Cm
when you could make my life worth living
F9                                      Fm7    Bb7  bb7#5
by simply taking what I'm set on giving

Key Change (4 flats) - Key of Ab
Expressively

For you I sigh, for you dear on - ly.

I'm all for you body and soul.

That you turn away ro - mance.

Key Change: (Key of C)

Dm7        G7sus G7     Cmaj7          C/E
Are you pretending?  It looks like the ending,

Unless I could have one more dance to prove, dear,

You know I'm yours for just the ta - king

How To Play Royals by Lorde


Royals by Lorde l LadyDpiano.com

photo credit: acl_day3_032 via photopin (license)

I have received a request from a reader to learn the song, Royals by Lorde. Well, it's very easy to play because there are only a few chords to play... D major, C major and G major. If you're familiar with Inversions, then you'll be playing thirds in the right hand. You might want to play the octave with the left hand for a fuller bass sound and move everything down to mid key range around middle c and below.

D
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address, in the torn up town
No post code envy

D                        
But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
C                              G
We don't care, we're driving cadillacs in our dreams.
                      D
But everybody's like cristal, maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
C                          G
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair.
   

                   D
And we'll never be royals..
It don't run in our blood,
             C
That kind of lux just ain't for us.
            G
We crave a different kind of buzz.
                D
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen bee
                C
And baby I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule.
G
Let me live that fantasy.


D
My friends and I we've cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this,
We didn't come from money.
