I think it’s about Barrie.
I heard the war was over if you really choose... the one in and around you [...] You hate the heat, you got the blues” She’s mentioning his depression.
“You don’t ever have to act cooler than you think you should” To me, it sounds like the depression made him self-conscious and uncertain of himself. She thinks he’s enough and perfect as he is already.
“I wanted to call you up, but I didn’t say a thing” Pure speculation, but I wonder if Lana is regretting the way things ended between them (because I personally think it’s really shitty to have a paparazzi tell you your relationship is over)

yes, the song feels like the perfect sequel to Black Beauty (Barrie songs are the best)

I did! The album cover back and front are censored, black vinyl, demo version of FIILY and extended version of hope


so it was confirmed that is a demo? makes a lot of sense

How is it a demo if it’s literally on the physical releases on the album? It would make the other one just the “single version” and this one the “album version”. A demo is just a working copy of a song, not a catch-all term for lo-fi songs.

After many listens  I'm able to name my Top 5 songs  :

Cinnamon Girl, Venice Bitch, California, The Greatest, Love Song

These Songs are God Tier for me and like a 11 out of 10

the rest of the fucking Album is still so good  and I love every track. No skips needed

I think its just Jack talking but, in the beginning of California u can here someone call out "one two!" and i always imagine it being a captain on a boat ready to take off.. and then the strings and synths begin and it sounds like she's setting sail... my favorite moment on the album i think. Has me in tears

California's bridge is much probably my absolute favourite Lana bridge of all time along with Every Man Gets His Wish.
