"Love" as written by and Rick Nowels Elizabeth Grant....
Look at you kids with your vintage music
Comin' through satellites while cruisin'
You're part of the past, but now you're the future
Signals crossing can get confusing

It's enough just to make you feel crazy, crazy, crazy
Sometimes, it's enough just to make you feel crazy

You get ready, you get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular
Back to work or the coffee shop
Doesn't matter 'cause it's enough
To be young and in love
To be young and in love

Look at you kids, you know you're the coolest
The world is yours and you can't refuse it
Seen so much, you could get the blues
But that don't mean that you should abuse it

Though it's enough just to make you go crazy, crazy, crazy
I know, it's enough just to make you go crazy, crazy, crazy

But you get ready, you get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular
Back to work or the coffee shop
It don't matter because it's enough
To be young and in love
To be young and in love

Don't worry, baby
Don't worry, baby

And it's enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy
It's enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy

I get ready, I get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular
It doesn't matter if I'm not enough
For the future or the things to come
'Cause I'm young and in love
I'm young and in love

Don't worry, baby
Don't worry, baby

    My InterpretationI like how this song turned out. It's got a really chill mood and a nostalgic feeling to it, making me love what we are capable of feeling. The accompanying video, to me, kind of matches up with the feelings. If you look:

    ~"Look at you kids with your vintage music
    Comin' through satellites while cruisin'
    You're part of the past, but now you're the future
    Signals crossing can get confusing"~
    The very first line shows that she's looking at the younger people and talking about them. She notes how they like old things and continues with the vintage theme by bringing up satellites. The first satellite was launched in the late 50's and since then thousands more had been launched, which continues the vintage theme of Lana's song (and if you watch the video, it's quite obvious). She says they're coming through satellites while cruising, so to me I think that means these younger people are either out of this world or super down to earth (I think it's the first of the latter, based on more lyrics); they're one way or the other without changing their minds. These young people, even if they're so vintage and dwelling in the past, they are still the next generation to carry on human life and the world. It feels controversial and kind of scary to know that you'll have to take on so much responsibility; this is what it's like to face reality, when signals in life start to cross.

    ~"It's enough just to make you feel crazy, crazy, crazy
    Sometimes, it's enough just to make you feel crazy"~
    True true, Lana. Growing up and looking back makes you feel crazy. It's so simple to do, and it just makes you feel strange. The video begins in black and white/faded tones, so I think during these times Lana is looking back.

    ~"You get ready, you get all dressed up
    To go nowhere in particular
    Back to work or the coffee shop
    Doesn't matter 'cause it's enough
    To be young and in love
    To be young and in love"~
    (This little bit makes me think of the "Schrodinger's Cat" idea.) She's talking about the younger people, they're ready either to start working or to keep going about living their way; in a way, it's like the younger people are either ready to have responsibilities to provide for themselves in the long term (down to earth) or they're ready to forgo all of those responsibilities at the moment and wait (out of this world). Either way they're ready, and either way they can feel in love, and when you're in love you feel like you are young because for a moment you forget about all of those responsibilities.

    ~"Look at you kids, you know you're the coolest
    The world is yours and you can't refuse it
    Seen so much, you could get the blues
    But that don't mean that you should abuse it"~
    When you're young and in love, you feel pretty unbounded, and it's such an amazing feeling. When you're young and unbounded, it's easy for you to be up to date on all of the cool, hip things; being young is literally the coolest time to be alive (at least from my experience). You feel like you rule the ground you walk upon, it's just amazing to be alive. Also, at this point in life, you've seen a lot of things--whether they're uplifting world events and life experiences, or depressing realities, Lana wants the young people to steer away from blues, because why waste away your young, amazing life on something that doesn't feel good?

    In the video, the first permanent bit of color comes to Lana's eye and eye makeup and you can see that they're blue. (This might not actually mean anything or her eyes might just be blue and that's cool, but...) I think this means that she spent time in the blues, which is why she's talking about the younger people and wanting them to not experience what she has in her lifetime; she's seen so much that she's gotten the blues and abused it (in some of her other songs, she's talked about rough times in her life). Then in the video, you see the moon and how close it looks to the earth, and the ceiling is gone. I think this shows how unbounded you feel and how close it is to feel out of this world when you're in love. There's colors everywhere, the water looks refreshing (hinting youth), the stars are bright, the sun is warming, and the young people are effortlessly drifting off into space having a surreal, fun, active time, because they're in love, not carrying any dead weight of responsibility.

    ~"Don't worry, baby
    Don't worry, baby"~
    When you're in love, just don't worry. Don't think of depressive things, forget about your responsibilities for a moment, just let that amazing feeling take you over.

    ~"And it's enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy
    It's enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy

    I get ready, I get all dressed up
    To go nowhere in particular
    It doesn't matter if I'm not enough
    For the future or the things to come
    'Cause I'm young and in love
    I'm young and in love"~
    She reveals that she's in love, feeling young and overtaken by what it's like to be in love, not necessarily thinking about the future at the moment. When you're in love, you can see so many beautiful things, and that's what Lana sees, despite being grounded, but she sees herself on the moon.

    General CommentI honestly don't know how to interpret this song, but I am a little sad to see it only has one comment. I do agree with one thing that other commenter said; this is a super moody song but in the best way possible.
