Maybe my contribution / could be as small as hoping
That words could turn to birds and birds would send my thoughts your way


It's true, Lana spoke me into existence:
 

It's the voodoo, mississippi south
69 million stars
Birds are flying out of my mouth

This is how I came into being. Like Athena from the mind of Zeus, I sprang fully formed from the mouth of Lana. You knew there had to be some voodoo shit involved, didn't you?

I still hear the backing vocals in the chorus saying "starway" not "stairway", is it just me? 

 

100% sounds like starway. i have to wonder if it was intentional or not?

Based on her KROQ interview, it's kind of confirmed that she's singing about watching Father John Misty on stage with Emma.

This song didn't quite click with me at first, but of course I've grown to really love it 💕 I think it's a really thoughtful song and another example of her versatile songwriting

In this interview it is revealed that she is aware that most people don't like this song :teehee:

 

Nostalgia can be really corny when it’s not done well, and you’re all about nostalgia. How do you try to get it right?

 

I know I walk the line sometimes. [laughs] I saw comments that people said about my little “Coachella - Woodstock in my Mind” song. I write that title and I’m like, OK, I know I went there. But I think it’s amazing. It’s on the nose. It’s so on the nose. But sometimes things just are what they are. I’m at Coachella for three days, and North Korea is pointing a missile at us, and I’m watching Father John Misty with my best friend, who’s his wife—that’s all I’m literally saying. It’s just like, Yeah, I’m a hipster. I know it. Got it.

They just played Coachella at a NYC Starbucks I'm in. Part of me thinks it's because I come here like everyday and the workers know I love lana lol. Or just a total coincidence! Either way, idc what you guys say, Coachella is a GOOD song.

Throwback to when a random person wrote ake lyrics for the song in under a day right before it released and they were lowkey better even if the meaning is way off

 

[Interlude]
And then you left me
Alone in your galaxy, with nothing to console me
But the sound of your voice playing over
And over again, on the radio

And every time I hear you strike that chord
Every time I hear a bird sing
Or cross paths with a couple in love
I hope that you're still proud

[Verse 1]
You and your sweet harmony
Tell me, is it true?
That you're still out there, baby
Fingers brush across a string
Reminds me of the way you used to sing
That rhythm and blues

[Refrain]
Listen to the choir sing
Cause baby, now the whole world's watching out
Was it you? Was it really you?
Are you with me?
Are you still here?

[Chorus]
Now I'm dancing at Coachella but
My mind's living in 1969
(Do you remember)?
Got your fingers 'round my fingers
It's your memory that keeps me feeling fine
(Do you remember?)

So don't you dare leave Woodstock
Don't wanna know that you're not here
Now I'm dancing at Coachella but
I left my heart with you there

[Verse 2]
You and your vintage guitar
Tell me, is it true?
Pretending that you're bigger than you are
Looked at me with your gentle eyes
And told me that you wished upon the stars

[Refrain]
Listen to the choir sing
Cause baby, now the whole world's watching out
Was it you? Was it really you?
Are you with me?
Are you still here?

[Bridge]
Your and your sweet melody
Lies over mine while singing Stevie Nicks
You were the bad boy behind the stage
Went out the door to get your fix
I gave myself to music
And through your music I gave myself to you
But now that you're not here, baby
I don't know what to do

[Chorus]
Now I'm dancing at Coachella but
My mind's living in 1969
(Do you remember)?
Got your fingers 'round my fingers
It's your memory that keeps me feeling fine
(Do you remember?)

[Finale]
Don't let me forget
Baby, don't let me forget
Your fingers on my lips
And my arms around your hips
Bye, bye (x3)

I'd trade it all for a stairway to heaven (A stairway) (A stairway)
I'd take my time for the climb up to the top of it (A stairway)
I'd trade the fame and the fortune and the legend (A stairway) (A stairway)
I'd give it all away / if you give me just one day / to ask Him one question
I'd give it all away / if you give me just one day / to ask Him one question

Got a million things I wanna say
Like what's it all for? Will it be okay?
Got a million things I wanna say
Like what's it all for?

 

does she have one question or a million things to say?

Coachella is perfect and fuck the continuous haters (aka the stalkers)

 

​Thank Elizabeth the album did not come out as originally planned with 9 or 10 songs in January of last year, because we the people got a whole extra album with the best songs

​added to the record.

 

​Do people realize, she is not looking to ask "god" in the song?

​She is looking to ask the question of the little boys with their toys(aka weapons that make up for their shortcomings)

 

​and yes, I understand people not accepting Coachella, because Lana broke the 4th Wall in doing so and that scares people who only

​want the same thing over and over and over again

 

​Meanwhile, Coachella was the #1 song of 2017 and one of the single most important landmark songs of all time.

Lana is our modern day Edith Piaf. Totally unique. a mixture of Brian WIlson Roy Orbison, Leonard Cohen, Gram Parsons, Elton & Bernie. Born to Die/Paradise is comparable to Elton's Captain Fantastic. All the records need to be listened whole. Waiting for a box set vinyl of all 400 songs not on any lp

This song has become special to me and on my top list of favorite Lana songs. 

 

I was listening to the LFL album a lot during a time I went through a traumatic situation around the holidays. This song was one I was replaying the most. Her voice is simply beautiful and soothing in this track. The song mentions hard times, but still she sounds optimistic and peaceful. To me this song felt comforting, like it was reminding me "you'll be okay". Ugh, my confession sounds like some cheesy "music saved my life" kind of bs, but it was during a period where I was emotionally/physically hurt and some days it was hard to feel normal. I love Lana's music so much and this song was one that helped me put my mind at ease.
