Lyrics for Future Nostalgia by Dua Lipa:

Intro
Future
(Future nostalgia)
(Future nostalgia)
(Future nostalgia)

Verse 1
You want a timeless song, I wanna change the game
Like modern architecture, John Lautner coming your way
I know you like this beat 'cause Jeff's been doin' the damn thing
You wanna turn it up loud, Future Nostalgia is the name (Future nostalgia)

Chorus
I know you're dying trying to figure me out
My name's on the tip of your tongue, keep running your mouth
You want the recipe, but can't handle my sound
My sound, my sound (Future, future nostalgia)

Post-Chorus
No matter what you do, I'm gonna get it without ya (Hey, hey)
(Future nostalgia)
I know you ain't used to a female alpha (No way, no way)
(Future nostalgia)
No matter what you do, I'm gonna get it without ya (Hey, hey)
(Future nostalgia)
I know you ain't used to a female alpha (No way, no way)
(Future nostalgia)

Verse 2
Can't be a rolling stone if you live in a glass house (Future nostalgia)
You keep on talking that talk, one day, you're gonna blast out
You can't be bitter if I'm out here showing my face (Future nostalgia)
You want what now looks like, let me give you a taste

Chorus
I know you're dying trying to figure me out
My name's on the tip of your tongue, keep running your mouth
You want the recipe, but can't handle my sound
My sound, my sound (Future, future nostalgia)

Post-Chorus
No matter what you do, I'm gonna get it without ya (Hey, hey)
(Future nostalgia)
I know you ain't used to a female alpha (No way, no way)
(Future nostalgia)
No matter what you do, I'm gonna get it without ya (Hey, hey)
(Future nostalgia)
I know you ain't used to a female alpha (No way, no way)
(Future nostalgia)

Bridge
You can't get with this if you ain't built for this
You can't get with this if you ain't built for this
I can't build you up if you ain't tough enough
I can't teach a man how to wear his pants (Haha)

Chorus
I know you're dying trying to figure me out
My name's on the tip of your tongue, keep running your mouth
You want the recipe, but can't handle my sound
My sound, my sound (Future)
I know you're dying trying to figure me out
My name's on the tip of your tongue, keep running your mouth
You want the recipe, but can't handle my sound
My sound, my sound (Future, future nostalgia)

Outro
(Future nostalgia)
(Future nostalgia)
My sound, my sound, my sound
(Future, future nostalgia)

Song Facts

The futuristic-esque title track and first promotional single released off of Dua Lipa’s sophomore album, Future Nostalgia, was first teased by the British singer-songwriter on her interview with Heart Breakfast back in November of 2019:

When I announce my album title, which will be early December, I’m gonna put out the album title track and like a little a video.

In the empowering feminist anthem, Lipa can be heard singing about how confident she feels while proudly referring to herself as a strong and optimistic “female alpha.”

Hours before its official US release, Dua took to social media to announce the song. Compared to other tracks, “Future Nostalgia” has a more experimental sound. The artist herself described it as “playful and fun and not […] too serious.”
