"White Mustang" as written by and Rick Nowels Elizabeth Grant....
Packing all my things for the summer
Lying on my bed it's a bummer
'Cause I didn't call when I got your number
But I liked you a lot
Slippin' on my dress in soft filters
Everybody said you're a killer, but I
Couldn't stop the way I was feeling the day
Your record dropped

The day I saw your white Mustang
Your white mustang
The day I saw your white Mustang
Your white mustang

Caught up in my dreams and forgetting
I've been acting like armageddon 'cause you
Held me in your arms just a little too tight
That's what I thought
Summer's meant for loving and leaving
I was such a fool for believing that you
Could change all the ways you've been living
But you just couldn't stop

The day I saw your white Mustang
Your white mustang
The day I saw your white Mustang
Your white mustang

You're revving and revving and revving it up
And the sound, it was frightening
And you were getting a part of that
You're gonna hit me like lightening

White mustang
Your white mustang
The day I saw your white Mustang
Said you're a wild Mustang

You're gonna hit me like lightening
You're gonna hit me like lightening

    Song MeaningWhite mustang is a euphemism for the guy's cock. Sounds ridiculous but that's what it is.
    She slept with him and though she was told he was a "killer" (lady killer), she couldn't help but to fall for him. He was probably a musician she admired and she thought he could change his ways, but now she sees that he never will.

    "You're revving and revving and revving it up
    And the sound, it was frightening
    And you were getting a part of that
    You're gonna hit me like lightening"

    His "revving" (going faster) is about his ways and how it "hits her like lightening" but also about the way he fucks her and the way she feels when they do it.

    General CommentWhile some of this suggests that the subject is a love interest with a white car, I wonder if this isn't another nod to Stevie Nicks.

    Nicks has an album titled "In Your Dreams" (dreams are mentioned in the song) and the album cover features a white horse. The lines suggests s/he first saw the white mustang early in the summer "...the day [a] record dropped." "In Your Dreams" was released May 3rd of 2011.

    My InterpretationThis song is about missing a loved one who was sentenced to prison, Lana thought her love could change the man and make him live an honest life but it didn't work out like that sadly.

    General CommentSummer is coming to an end she wishes she would’ve called the guy she liked more. She believes in summer love but knows he is bad news for her and it will only get her in trouble if she pursued him . Everyone around her doesn’t want them to be together but she can’t help the way she feels and is drawn in to him , white mustang is a reference for his dick . They’ve slept together and it’s electric and makes her feel so good so she refers to it as “lightening “ . “Held me in your arms just a little to tight” she is falling deeper in love with him and it scares her so she is a mess fighting her emotions between how she feels and how she believes everyone thinks she should feel . In a battle with her own emotions . Revving and revving it up- they are having sex and she enjoys it so much that she’s frightened to actually lose this feeling of euphoria .
