Lana Del Rey – Music to Watch Boys To Lyrics 1 year ago
In this song Lana reflects on her baby sitting days, she worked as a child-care professional from 2008-2011, mostly taking care of the children of close friends.

The first verse (I like you a lot, putting on my music while I'm watching the boys) talks about Lana's relationship with the children she takes care of, she likes hanging out with them, putting on pleasant music in the background, as it is entertaining but doesn't divert her attention from looking after the boys.

(Playing their guitars, only one of my toys)
Lana entertains the children by playing on a guitar for them, a technique that many child-care professionals use to calm down riled up children.
This line truly shows the lyrical genius Lana is, the second part, only one of my toys refers to the fact that she has many other ways to entertain the children, she is ready for this job and she knows she can do it well.


Pink flamingos
Always fascinated me
I know what only the girls know
Knows what lies akin to me

Now that she successfully calmed down the children, they are looking at a picture book together. A nice relaxing activity for everyone involved.

Velveteen and living single
It never felt that right to me
I know what only the girls know
Lies can buy eternity

Lana didn't have a relationship which was solid enough that she felt it would be a responsible thing to have children of her own, and she expresses her distress over that in the first two lines. In the last two, she talks about the fairy tales she entertains the boys with until they fall asleep for the night, which means her work for that day is done.

I, I see you're going
So I push record
And watch you leave

As any responsible Nanny, Lana watched out for the security of the children she had to take care of. This line describes that even when they wandered around the house without her supervision, it was all right because Lana put a surveillance system in the house so she could always track her boys, they were always watched while she was there. (While she played her music, music to watch boys to.)

I live to love you
And I love to love you
And I live to love you, boy
I live to love you
And I love to love you
And I live to love you, boy

The bridge moves the narrative of the song forward in a beautiful way. Now that the children are asleep, Lana watches them sleep and talks to them, she tells them she loves them, tonight, she is theirs. She exists to take care of her boys.

Nothing gold can stay
Like love or lemonade
Or sun or summer days
It's all a game to me anyway

As the night draws to an end, Lana is reminded that the parents of the kids will be here soon, and she can't stay much longer. While she is not very happy about it, she gets over it. They are not her own children so she doesn't take her role as seriously as if they were her own.

Putting on my music while I'm watching the boys
Putting on my music while I'm watching the boys

The closing lines of the song describe Lana's final moments with her boys before the parents arrive: she listens to soft music in the background while making sure that the kids are okay. She really does a great job as a nanny.

Lana Del Rey – Terrence Loves You Lyrics 1 year ago
She sings about not being able to change a person, because he is the way he is and there is no use in changing him. She even really describes him as "crazy", which might not be an unusual lyric for Lana, but in this context it could be literal. Persons with mental disorders can#t just be changed like that from 0 to 10.

Then there is this thing with the tunes. David Bowie (who was VERY close to his brother Terry) wrote multiple tracks about him. I guess this line refers to being remembered how things were before the mental disease showed.

The bridge with the two Bowie references clearly shows that she's trying to contact someone who obviously isn't there anymore, at least not in her "realm". TVC15 is about someone crawling into a televsion and being lost into this world. Major Tom's spaceship is somewhere out there in space and clearly loses contact to earth, meaning he will most likely die. David bowie's brother was schitzophrenic, which most likely results in persons behaving like they are not experiencing what many others experience, or at least they take it differently.

Then we have the line about their love being hidden but never gone. Even though someone with a mental disorder might not be able to show his feelings, but they still are there.

And another reason why I don't think it's about Barrie is the "I lost myself when i lost you" line. Even though a break up can be very hurtful, this line seems more like losing something even more important. David's brother was the one from his family he was closest with.

Lana Del Rey – Terrence Loves You Lyrics 1 year ago
@[lilcan:6004] Multiple lyrics could imply it's about losing someone to a mental problem, and it's not secret that Barrie was depressed and that lead to their breakup.
Also it makes sense..."i still get trashed, baby, when i hear your tunes," since barrie was a songwriter.

Also, trying to desperately connect to someone who you can't outright contact anymore because you've broken up. (trying to transmit, can you hear me?) it's heart breaking.

Meghan Trainor – My Selfish Heart Lyrics 2 years ago
This song is about Meghan leaving a guy who is madly in love with her, but she has to turn him away, because she knows she can't give him what he really wants and needs. It's gonna hurt to be separated but ultimately it is going to be good for him, he has to let her go.
The song also touches on how being in a relationship would keep Meghan back from giving it all to her career, and she is focused on making that happen in this period of her life.

Lana Del Rey – Wait for Life Lyrics 2 years ago
I think this song describes Lana's relationship with things outside of herself which cause distress in her life (mainly the media/her record label) and lets us know how her experiences make her feel

Why you make me work so hard
To put on that evening show

Here Lana talks about the problems she faces in her career as a musician. She loves to make music and she does tours, but promoting the songs is a drag for her, she is shy and a private person, doesn't really like to be the center of cynical, hurtful attention. She perceives many people to be this way. She does not enjoy some aspects of her career, yet she still has to do it.

When you know that all I want
Is to make your money grow?


She is addressing her "money hungry" label who always want to change her and push her to be more commercial, they are dissatisfied with her product. The label benefits from having her and she would be willing to work with them if only she was supported in what she wants to do.

You're like a baby who don't got nowhere to go
I feel you eyeing me, you keep it on the low
(on the low, on the low)


They act childish towards her - she has a contract, they don't let her go, but they don't want her in the way that she is available to them. They want to change her constantly.

But I can't let you in
And I can't keep you out
I wait for life to mend
But it never comes around
And I can't hear you call
And I can't hear me [shout?]
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around

The chorus addresses the media scrutinizing her and exposing too much about her life, her past, her family. She doesn't want people to dig around in her past yet she is helpless against them, she can't stop people from doing it. She waits for life to mend, to get better, for better things to come but they never seem to arrive. She wants to have a break where she can be more at peace but she only yearns for peace, it is not her actual experience.

And I'm lonely
I'm lonely
I'm lonely


These events make her feel lonely, being watched by the eye of so many people who misunderstand or judge her. Sometimes you feel the most alone in a crowd. That is how she is. She doesn't find someone who she can trust or someone who relates to her, even though it is imporant her to have a person who she can hold on to.

Why you make me take that shit
To put on that evening show
When you know I don't need it
Better than your booze and blow?


Again she laments that with her profession as a musician she has to do many things that she doesn't enjoy. Making music is her favorite part but there is a lot more to it than that.

In the two final lines, she says she doesn't need all the mainstream success that some would like her to have, it is not a priority for her. She likens those achievements to booze and blow, they put you high but they are also hurtful, they bring even more attention to you and she already had enough of that. She is worried that more attention would cause more problems.

- -

(Scatting)
Feel like I'm falling apart
(Scatting)
Feel like I'm falling apart
(Scatting)
Feel like I'm falling apart


Because of the bad experiences, her stability is broken, she is falling apart, she doesn't know how to react what to say, and often gets into uncomfortable situations which give her even more bad reputation. (like the I want to die story) She feels destroyed but she is helpless and can't do much against it.


Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?

But I can't let you in
And I can't keep you out
I wait for life to [win/mend/end?]

But it never comes around
And I can't hear you call
And I can't hear me [shout?]
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around



And I'm lonely
I'm lonely
I'm lonely

She is alone - misunderstood, and helpless. Truly a sad song describing the abandonmnet she feels in her position from which she can't really escape.

Taylor Swift – All You Had To Do Was Stay Lyrics 2 years ago
This is how Taylor explained the creation of the song in her interview with The Times:

There’s a song on my album called “All You Had to Do Was Stay.” I was having this dream, that was actually one of those embarrassing dreams, where you’re mortified in the dream, you’re like humiliated. In the dream, my ex had come to the door to beg for me to talk to him or whatever, and I opened up the door and I went to go say, “Hi,” or “What are you doing here?” or something—something normal—but all that came out was this high-pitched singing that said, “Stay!” It was almost operatic. So I wrote this song, and I used that sound in the song. Weird, right? I woke up from the dream, saying the weird part into my phone, figuring I had to include it in something because it was just too strange not to. In pop, it’s fun to play around with little weird noises like that.

Lana Del Rey – Fucked My Way Up to the Top Lyrics 2 years ago
So here's why it's unfortunately about Lorde

Life is awesome, I confess
- Responding to Lorde's criticism of portraying a glamorous lifestyle that no one can relate to. She confesses it's awesome. Well, she lives it now so she knows.

Lay me down tonight
In my linen and curls
Lay me down tonight
Riviera girls
-The "Lay me down tonight in my linen and curls" line could possibly be a reference to Lorde's young age, like she has to be put to bed like a baby.
-Also, Lana is being sarcastic by saying diamonds and pearls and linen and curls; all these items are attributed to wealthiness, while Lorde was frustrated with the Lavish lifestlye Lana portrays

What I do, I do it best
You got nothing, I got tested
And I passed, yes
- In the game of alternative female pop singers, Lana professes that she does it best, and this amplified by the fact that she is successful even despite being "tested." She passed the test of public scrutiny, while Lorde didn't because she was immediately successful.

I fucked my way up to the top
This is my show
- Like it or not, kinda of a "nanana boo boo" in the face of Lorde's feminist message

Don't even know what you're good for
Mimicking me is a fucking bore to me
The significance of the hip-hop sound of this song...it drives this one particular point home. Hip-hop influence is important here, something she and Lorde share. The strangled loon (or is it a baboon sound) that happens at least twice in FMWUTTT also strengthens the reference to the hip hop influence of her previous record, which Lorde blatantly copied on her own album.

Need you, baby, like I breathe you, baby
Need you, baby, more more more more
-This part is mocking Lorde's particular gripe with "Without You", this is what Lorde said: "She’s great, but I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: “I’m nothing without you.” This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, don’t leave me stuff. That’s not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear."
This line portrays exactly that desperation that Lorde was complaining about.

Lana Del Rey – Million Dollar Man Lyrics 2 years ago
This song is about her bad boy. It's a song of admiration for his life, career, art, and skill. He has a power over people, her specifically, that she can't understand. She knows he's bad and wrong, yet she's absolutely captivated. I thinks he definitely knows she needs to escape, but again can't. Then, she uses one of the most clever puns she has ever used: "You look like a million dollar man, so why is my heart broke?" At first I was like, "Ugh, Lana, your grammar is awful!" but then I realized it is intentional. Meaning, all the money in the world can't buy happiness; she still feels empty and meaningless. I love that! The same idea is in the second verse: "You got the whole world, but, baby, at what price?" She will follow him anywhere, regardless of what it costs her.

Lana Del Rey – Money, Power, Glory Lyrics 2 years ago
Sarcasm and a contrast of truth vs. life.
The verses are sort of about what she really wants and believes in. How are you supposed to get true happiness and freedom with "the way that we're living today"? She jokes and says she doesn't care about God or freedom or anything--instead, she wants the money, power, and glory of fame. Her biggest critics accuse her of this, and she claims that they are right--again, to poke fun at them. It's obviously a little bitter, but also very catchy. She is submissive--she will do whatever to takes to make others, as we know she does care a lot about what people think of her. But again, she shows sarcastic strength ("you better run, boy, run!"). She glamorizes the life of a celebrity ("dope and diamonds"), and I think she intentionally feeds into the critics, because she knows people will believe her words in this song and claim she's in it entirely for the fame, but she gets the last laugh, because she and her fans know that this is not the truth.

Lana Del Rey – Sad Girl Lyrics 2 years ago
She is using the "cheating" metaphor both to make fun of her critics, as well as to symbolize the dynamic of the relationship she has. Again she seems like she is carefree in the verses (cheating, being a bad bitch), but in the chorus you see that she really loves her boy, who walks and talks with a fire. He is emotionally distant, which makes her a sad girl. But also, the critics call her too emotional, a mess, a "sad girl," and I don't think she didn't title the song SG so as to get at the critics. You call me a sad, overemotional girl? I am one!

submissions
Lana Del Rey – West Coast Lyrics 2 years ago
It's about leaving a relationship for the music and her ignoring her own emotions. She loves him, but she can't let him know that or how much she misses him. She is rather introverted like he appears to me ("you've got the music in you"), so he keeps to himself. The boy tries very hard, but she just pulls away and can't express her real emotions for him, even though she wants to. She watches from afar, as shown in the chorus. She is madly in love with him, regardless of how flawed he is. No one has ever made her feel this way before. Lana has said also how the verse is fast-paced and then the tempo slows down in the chorus, supposedly representing how crazy her emotions are. In the verses she appears to be distant and in control, but in the choruses we see that that isn't the case, that even though she seems strong on the outside, she is weaker internally. One more point I want to make is that she has said the album is a fusion of rock and jazz, and this is also represented by the fusion of the West and East Coast. Geography, genre, emotions, themes, etc. are all concepts that are put together and compared/contrasted on this album.

Lana Del Rey – Old Money Lyrics 2 years ago
In the beginning, she is just listing things that remind her of a past life/love, maybe, which are all images that paint a nostalgic, sad picture of happier times in our heads. The kids who were young and pretty, I believe, are Lana and her lover, as we later find out. She asks where he's been, since the happy times feel so long ago. I love this line: "So is the girl you used to call the Queen of New York City." It's a bittersweet song, and a great counterpart to Young & Beautiful. Y&B is told from the present looking at the future, and OM is told from the present (or, the future of Y&B) looking at the past. I love the connection there. Even though they are broken up and in the past, she obviously still loves him, because at any call in the blink of an eye, she would come running back to him. That's extreme devotion. The second verse is even stronger. "The power of youth is on my mind. Sunset, small town--I'm out of time." This is either a song about made up people who are older and have lived their lives, looking back at the past, or a song about her currently, growing older and feeling old, missing her youthful past. The next line alludes to Y&B. She wants to be known for her career and artistry, not her looks. That is more important to her. She references her love for her parents, and how even though she should feel loved and such, she still feels alone. She's always been unique and had this longing for something, as she has said many times. She's never known why, but I think she is happy, since it has shaped her music and who she is in general. The song is so sad. I think Old Money is a metaphor with double meaning: her music often talks about the life of the rich and famous, but on another more personal level, maybe OM refers to a past love--the one from many of the other songs. A while ago she said "I will always love the same man. He will always inspire me." I don't think she was lying.

submissions
Lana Del Rey – Pretty When You Cry Lyrics 2 years ago
I think this is the angriest, most bitter song on Ultraviolence. The verses are very straightforward. The relationship has ended, and all the promises he made left as well. He made her feel like his whole world. No matter how much he hurts or disappoints her, she will wait for him, even if it is all he does. She loves him, and whatever good there is is enough to hold her there. She goes back and forth from being strong in declaring "you're bad, we're over" to being weak in saying "but I still love you anyway, I'll wait for you". The title/chorus itself is a bit confusing, but I think she's saying that her guys likes her in a crazy, emotional state. HE is saying that she is pretty when she cries, and he hurts her to see her love him even more, to devote herself to him even more.

submissions
Lana Del Rey – Off to the Races Lyrics 2 years ago
I think she uses "the races" as a symbol for risk and luck. People go to the races and place bets on horses; of course, any gambling or betting induces risk or chance of loss. This relates to her relationship, in which she knows there is risk of losing everything, yet she bets everything on it to "win" or get the "prize" of a successful relationship. The lyrics suggest he is a "bad man," with his dark soul and tough nature and all the other one-liners that insinuate danger and an evil nature. She lists everything bad about him, and yet se still loves him clearly, which is a common theme in all of her music--loving someone completely, regardless of his obvious flaws. I LOVE the flow of this song--the rhythm, how she sings the words, how they all flow so well and rhyme and everything. Casino, races, Las Vegas etc. are all references to betting/gambling, or things that may harm her in the end. She goes for it anyway, she "trusts in the decision of the lord." The song is also rather sexual, as he obviously has a very firm "hold" and "grab" on her, and the "light of my life, fire of my loins." This isn't the only reference to Lolita on the album, which also describes an older, dangerous man. but as Lana has said, danger = interest. A safe love would be boring. The chorus shows a duality to her character: the innocent outward appearance ("singing in the garden") matched with the inward, actual dangerous/crazy/naughty personality. There are lots of references and objects so as to give the listener a clear picture in his/her mind. Throughout the song, she is never unsure of her feelings for him, and the end sums up her positivity: "Love you forever, not maybe--you are my one true love." Her chances of a happy relationship may be risky and slim, but her love for him--for better or worse--is absolutely definite.

Lana Del Rey – National Anthem Lyrics 2 years ago
A national anthem is a song of devotion to one's country, and I think she uses it as a metaphor to show her devotion to and love for this twisted man. But in general, as we all know, the song is about the rich, superficial lives of the upper class. Constantly through the song she refers to various places, objects, and concepts associated with the rich. Lana loves talking about the privileged, upper class in her music.
I think the song is very sexual for a number of reasons: (1) Chanting "Red, White, Blue, is in the sky. Summer's in the air, and, baby, heaven's in your eyes. I'm your national anthem" seems very sexual, like an orgasm to me (think about it!); (2) "Can't keep your pants on" or "Put your hands up" or "Give me a standing ovation" (erection); (3) "Standing over your body, hold you like a python", which sounds like a penis to me, but also snakes are obviously very dangerous. She shows more confidence in this song than any other (sans Radio) on the album.

Lana Del Rey – Diet Mountain Dew Lyrics 2 years ago
First of all, people always say that diet sodas are "healthy" or better for them, when in reality they are just as bad with added artificial sugars and such. I think this relates with the unhealthy relationship she has with a man--the one in which Lana ignores the bad, maybe even embraces it, because she loves him so much. She knows he is no good for her, but she wants him anyway. "Turn me to ashes" also shows she knows he's bad for her. She doesn't care what people think/say of her or "what the past says". They will take Jesus off the dashboard, even, so that truly no one can judge them. She loves him because he gives her a rush--the roller coaster, the speed, the high--and he will teach her "just what fast is," which is the feeling we know from her interviews she craves: feeling alive, young, wild, and free. That's why she loves the men that mostof us find terrible! She keeps asking "Do you think we'll be in love forever?", which to me is the first time on the album she shares the same doubts we as the listeners may have for their relationship (though, she surely is positive of her feelings/love for him)

submissions
Lana Del Rey – Cruel World Lyrics 2 years ago
It talks about the "then" ("Shared my body and my mind/life with you") vs. the "now" ("That's all over now"). She acknowledges the wasted time, energy, passion, and devotion of a relationship, which is an interesting thought: where does all that love go when a relationship ends? And even though she has "found another, anyhow," it is clear that she is not fine at all. She puts on her "little red party dress" and talks about candy, fun, happiness, and such, yet "everybody knows that she's a mess," and "fucking crazy." She completely admires his lifestyle ("you're young, you're wild, you're free") and has adopted it as her own, but she knows he is still "dancing circles" around her. All in all, the song sonically and thematically introduces the conflicting emotions she says the album itself contains (ex: the quiet, almost lifeless verses followed by the hectic, bitter and loud chorus). A great way to introduce the theme/story and sound of the record.

Lana Del Rey – Hollywood Lyrics 3 years ago
This song is an outtake from the recording sessions for Paradise, it references her song "Body Electric" and also Gods and Monsters (Jim Morrison)

She actually owns a house in Hollywood now, but she didn't at the time of writing this song. She talks about her fascination with a life which could be possible in a glamorous setting like the mentioned city, Lana is fascinated by architecture.

In the heartfelt chorus she is expressing her will to go on with life, she is strong enough to achieve her goals and make something of herself in this world, but she is also thrilled with the process of life.
(My heart beating fast I can feel it chasing in the speed)

She also speaks about having found true love, who is accompanying her in that idyll lifestyle now, which she has been dreaming about. In a way this songs refers to Lana's fulfillment in the land of her dreams.

She wants to have a great life, but she is unsure about pursuing what she really wants in life.

I want to be the whole world's girl, gramma
Tell me do you think that's wrong?

Confusion is really present in this song, she's not sure if it's okay to think that she is pretty.
Her grandmother reassures her.

Gramma said that somewhere out there there's a good man, waiting for me

And leaves the lights on for her, also showing the caring love she was surrounded with.

It's also about taking things easy, the guy she's interested in can say whatever he wants, she likes him any way.

Lana Del Rey – Black Beauty Lyrics 3 years ago
Lana watched a lot of Spanish themed movies after Paradise came out, possibly at the influence of her boyfriend, Barrie O'Neill.
The lyrics are really telling, she bends in the relationship, tries to please her man, as she is rather submissive. She wants Barrie to see the beauty of the world by her side, and be happy but he isn't happy enough, in reality it's just the way he is, and that's where the sadness of the song comes from.
"What can I do, life is beautiful but you don't have a clue"

It's not his fault, it's just the way he is, oblivious about the great things in life.

Lana Del Rey – Back to the Basics Lyrics 3 years ago
She wrote this song about K, her early love who is now dead, the same guy she wrote Dark Paradise and many songs about.
He was a drug addict, and she wanted them to get clean together. This song talks about that wish, because the guy slipped back into the addiction over time, causing the end of the relationship, which is essentially what Blue Jeans is about.

At the core of the song, she just wants her man, and she wants him to become free of his addiction, so they can be happy like they were at the beginning of their relationship.
