I believe that she's dying and she meets a friend of hers/lover she lost a while back

Bel Air is Dark Paradise Pt. II?

Her lover is waiting for her on the other side?

I also thought about this possibility.
Someone on OGG said that he'd realized the song was a continuation for BTD. I didn't get it though.

This really about Axl Rose? I get all the references in the lyrics which makes me think it is, but I can't stand the fella!

Realising it could be has taken a slight shine off the song for me. :(

I found this interpretation on this site called songmeanings.net, sounds quite plausible if you ask me!

Rife with subtle allusions to the band, Guns N' Roses, the song appears to be about Del Rey's brief romance with Axl Rose.

"Bel-Air" in the title and repeated throughout the refrain has a dual meaning. First, it is a location in Los Angeles, a city in which Axl Rose lives. Additionally, he is known for driving a restored Chevy Bel-Air automobile. So, when she says "Roses, Bel Air, take me there." She's talking both about going to Bel Air to meet her lover with flowers, and also about Axl Rose sporting her around in his sports car.

In the second verse, the lyric "sweet child of mine" directly alludes to the hit single by Guns N' Roses of the same name. Further, in the third verse, Del Rey sings "Idol of roses, iconic soul. I know your name" again refers to Axl Rose, indirectly describing him as a music icon known for "Roses" (or Guns N' Roses, as it were). Over all, the song has a mourning atmosphere; the romance between Rose and Del Rey was very secretive, and it appears that the "wall built by brilliant direction" implies that he wanted to keep the relationship out of the spotlight, she did not, and it eventually led to their break up.

My mind was making a connection today between Bel Air and Lalo Schifrin's main titles for the original Amityville Horror. And then i listened to the main titles today to check, and uh, never mind. Don't know why i was thinking that. BUT, DAMMIT, IT SOUNDS LIKE SOME SCORE, WHAT IS IT?

I love love love love love the idea of this being about Axl Rose. Considering her previous love of him (Axl Rose Husband, the Gramma video, GnR shirts, etc) it's just too fucking cute, her love of rockstars. But my question is, when she was seen with him, was she not supposed to be dating Barrie at the time?

This song was playing last night when I was driving downtown with my friends. My friend Melanie said of this song: "This is that faerie shit. This is that mermaid shit." :OH: and then we had to change to the radio

I don’t wanna be bad, I won’t cheat you no more


maybe this song is about cheating on reeve carney or jimmy gnecco and regretting it? I'm not even sure if she cheated on either of them but it could be. maybe, maybe not.
i'm not sure about reeve, but I'm pretty sure jim was kinda violent, which links to 'violentest kind of love'
but would lana really cheat on jim?
not sureeee
