Mood Ring by Lorde: What are the lyrics to her song?

The lyrics to Mood Ring, according to Genius, are as follows:

[Verse 1]
I’m tryna blow bubbles, but inside
Can’t seem to fix my mood
Today, it’s as dark as my roots
If I, if I ever let them grow out (Ah-ah)
Now all of my oceans have riptides
Can’t seem to find what’s wrong
The whole world is letting me down
Don’t you think the early 2000’s seem so far away? (Ay-ay-ay-ay)

[Pre-Chorus]
Ladies, begin your sun salutations
Transcendental in your meditations (Love and light)
You can burn sage, and I’ll cleanse the crystals
We can get high, but only if the wind blows (Blows just right)

[Chorus]
I can’t feel a thing
I keep looking at my mood ring
Tell me how I’m feeling
Floating away, floating away

[Verse 2]
I’m tryna get well from the inside
Plants and celebrity news, all the vitamins I consume
Let’s fly somewherе eastern, they’ll havе what I need (They’ll have what I need)
Let’s go

[Pre-Chorus]
Ladies, begin your sun salutations
Pluto in Scorpio generation (Love and light)
You can burn sage, and I’ll cleanse the crystals
We can get high, but only if the wind blows (Blows just right, ri-ri-ri-right)

[Chorus]
I can’t feel a thing
I keep looking at my mood ring
Tell me how I’m feeling
Floating away, floating away
All the sad girls sing
We’ll keep dancing ’til the mood rings
Tell us how we’re feeling
Floating away, floating away

[Outro]
Take me to some kinda—
Take me to some kinda—
Take me to some kinda place (Anywhere)
Watch the sun set, look back on my life (Take me to some kinda—)
I just wanna know, will it be alright? (Take me to some kinda—)
Take me to some kinda place (Anywhere)

What is the meaning behind Lorde’s song Mood Ring?

Lorde said that her new hit is partly a “metaphor for the magical thinking we employ at times to feel well.” 

She said she sometimes realizes she’s “bending” her horoscope to match what she wants to be told in the moment, showing how she buys into spirituality.

“When making this album I did a deep-dive into ’60s, Flower Child culture,” Lorde said.

“One thing that occurred to me as a major parallel between that time and our time is our wellness culture and our culture of spirituality, pseudo-spirituality, wellness, pseudo-wellness.”

“Things like eating a macro-biotic vegan diet or burning sage, keeping crystals, reading tarot cards or your horoscope. These were all things that they were dabbling in back then, and that me and my girlfriends are dabbling in today.”

Who is the person signing in the Mood Ring music video?

The video features a blonde woman singing in a “dazed spa-like video” who “isn’t representative of Lorde herself, Billboard reported.

“Instead, it’s her strikingly blonde, nameless alter ego, a character who’s obsessed with today’s pseudo wellness/spirituality culture.”

The video starts with a cautionary statement reading, “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear,” when Lorde with platinum hair opens her eyes and starts singing.

“It goes without saying I feel tons of empathy for this character.”

“It was never my intention to fully flame her, although I don’t let her off the hook. We’re living through wild times, and it’s tough to begrudge anyone the methods they employ to feel sane, questionable though they may be.”
