Blue Jeans is a song that is featured on the Born to Die album as Track 3, as well as the Lana Del Rey EP. Blue Jeans was the second single to be released from...
Blue jeans, white shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like James Dean, for sure
You so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favorite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby

I will love you 'til the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember oh baby ooh
I will love you 'til the end of time

Big dreams, gangster
Said you had to leave to start your life over
I was like, no please, stay here
We don't need no money we can make it all work
But he headed out on Sunday, said he'd come home Monday
I stayed up waitin', anticipatin' and pacin' but he was
Chasing paper
Caught up in the game, that was the last I heard

I will love you 'til the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember oh baby ooh
I will love you 'til the end of time

You went out every night
And baby that's alright
I told you that no matter what you did I'd be by your side
Cause Ima ride or die
Whether you fail or fly
Well shit, at least you tried
But when you walked out that door, a piece of me died
I told you I wanted more-but that not what I had in mind
I just want it like before
We were dancin' all night
Then they took you away- stole you out of my life
You just need to remember

I Will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that your mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember oh baby ooh
I will love you till the end of time

    Song MeaningOkay so my friend knows Lana and was pretty close to her.

    "Big dreams, gangster
    Said you had to leave to start your life over
    I was like: "no please, stay here,"
    We don't need no money we can make it all work"

    The song is legitimately about this guy she was in love with, the dudes name is Rob. He was into heroine or something (dealing it/using it) and one day he traveled to Alaska for some reason or another.

    "But he headed out on Sunday, said he'd come home Monday
    I stayed up waitin', anticipatin' and pacin' but he was
    Chasing paper
    Caught up in the game" that was the last I heard"

    Caught up in the heroine game that is. While the guy was there in Alaksa he overdosed. The news spread to all his friends but after a day or two Lana still had no idea and MY friend was the one who found out and called Lana on the phone to tell her the news. Lana then wrote the song sometime between then and January 15 when she performed it live for the first time on Saturday Night Live (She was pretty messed up with alcohol and what not thats why the performance was so ehh.)

    "You went out every night
    And baby that's alright
    I told you that no matter what you did I'd be by your side
    Cause Ima ride or die
    Whether you fail or fly
    Well shit, at least you tried."

    At least he tried right?

    Hope some of you found this worth reading :)
