"Guns and Roses" as written by and Lana Del Rey Elizabeth Woolridge Grant....
Heavy metal love of mine
I should have learned to let you stay
You didn't want me all the time
But you were worth it anyway
'Cause you were so much better
Than the rest of them
Out of all the others
You were the honest man

He loved guns and roses, guns and roses
He loved guns and roses, he loved guns
And roses, roses, roses

Motorcycle love divine
I should have learned to let you play
I wasn't the marrying kind
I should have done it anyway
We should have left Las Vegas
And then began again
To get back to Detroit
Back to the promised land

He loved guns and roses, guns and roses
He loved guns and roses, he loved guns
And roses, roses, roses

I can feel it coming in the air tonight
See you walking on that [?]
I can see you bathing in the summer light
Turning tan in your left, I think
You got game boy, game boy
You got game boy, game boy
You got game boy, game boy
You got game

He loved guns and roses, guns and roses
He loved guns and roses, he loved guns
And roses, roses, roses [x2]

    Song MeaningThe song is about a relationship with a rockstar.
    The lines "You didn't want me all the time / But you were worth it anyway" shows that her lover was distant because of his rockstar lifestyle. However, in the lines "Out of all the others / You were the honest man" shows that she understood it as something honest, because he didn't try to hide the defects in their relationship.
    The lines "Took your bike to Detroit / Back to the promised land" could both mean her lover left her to go to Detroit or they both should have left Las Vegas to go to Detroit. It's cool how this part takes us back in time, making us feel around the 80s/90s, when Detroit was "the promised land" of rock n' roll.
