All the pretty starts shine for you, my love

Am I that girl that you dream of?

I think I'll miss you forever

Like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies

 

These few words are describing a picture so beautifully and I never really thought that the stars always chase the sun and will miss seeing it forever... until Lana said so. :flutter:

"No one’s gonna take my soul away,

Living like Jim Morrison.
Headed towards a fucked up holiday.
Motel, sprees, sprees, and I’m singing,
Fuck yeah give it to me, this is heaven, what I truly want
It's innocence lost.
Innocence lost"

 

"I hear the birds on the summer breeze,

I drive fast, I am alone in midnight
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble,
But I, I've got a war in my mind
So, I just ride, just ride,
I just ride, just ride"

 

"I'm tired of feeling like I'm fucking crazy

I'm tired of driving 'til I see stars in my eyes
It's all I've got to keep myself sane, baby
So I just ride, I just ride"

 

This is what I love Paradise  :flutter:

Everyone can start again

Not through love but through revenge

Through the fire, we're born again

Peace by vengeance

Brings the end

I don't really wanna know what's good for me

although I can't really relate to that line above

God's dead

I said "Baby, that's alright with me"

No one's gonna take my soul away

Life doesn't always work out

like you planned it

They say "make lemonade out of lemons"

but I tried

and I just can't understand it

 

All this trying for no good reason

Man makes plans and God laughs

Why do I even bother to ask?

 

-----

I feel like these lines are some of the few ones that I can relate to out of Lana's songs. I cried quite a lot having this on repeat a few months ago, last summer. I'm not religious, but those are some beautiful lyrics right there. I can totally relate. They say that you should always trust God for having a plan for you but in this song, it sounds as if god is mocking you with your dumb plans. Or maybe it's supposted to be a good-hearted laugh, like to someone you love. I dunno.

But I don't have a god anyways so.

I'm just tired of trying my best and not getitng "anything" out of it.

My favorite lyrics:

Lucky Ones:

Every now and then the stars align. Boy and girl meet by the great design. Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones? Everybody told me love was blind. Then I saw your face and you blew my mind. Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time.


Brooklyn Baby:

They say I'm too young to love you. They say I'm too dumb to see. They judge me like a picture book. By the colors, like they forgot to read. I think we're like fire and water. I think we're like the wind and sea. You're burning up, I'm cooling down. You're up, I'm down. You're blind, I see. But I'm free. I'm free.


Pretty When You Cry:

All the pretty stars shine for you, my love. Am I that girl that you dream of? All those little times you said that I'm your girl. You make me feel like your whole world.

 
Terrence Loves You:

I put the radio on, hold you tight in my mind. Isn't strange that you're not here with me. But I know the light's on in the television. Trying to transmit, can you hear me? Ground control to Major Tom. Can you hear me all night long? Ground control to Major Tom


When The World Was At War We Kept Dancing:

Is it the end of an era? Is it the end of America? Is it the end of an era? Is it the end of America? No, it's only the beginning. If we hold on to hope. We'll have a happy ending. When the world was at war before. We just kept dancing. When the world was at war before. We just kept dancing.


 Heroin:

I'm flying to the moon again Dreaming about marzipan Taking all my medicine To take my thoughts away. I'm getting on that aeroplane. Leaving my old man again. I hope that I come back one day. To tell you that I really changed. Baby.


Change:

Change is a powerful thing. People are powerful beings. Trying to find the power in me to be faithful. Change is a powerful thing. I feel it coming in me. Maybe by the time Summer's done. I will be able. To be honest, capable. Of holding you in my arms without letting you fall. When I don't feel beautiful or stable. Maybe it's enough to just be where we are because every time that we run. We don't know what it's from. Now we finally slow down. We feel close to it. There's a change gonna come. I don't know where or when. But whenever it does. We'll be here for it.


Get Free:

There's no more chasing rainbows. And hoping for an end to them. Their arches are illusions. Solid at first glance. But then you try to touch them. There's nothing to hold on to.. The colors used to lure you in. And put you in a trance.


Her songs are written so beautifully, I love her lyrics. :)

Bel Air's lyrics are one of the main reasons I love the song (also the ethereal sound of the entire song but especially chorus)

 

 

 

Roses, Bel Air, take me there,

I've been waiting to meet you.
Palm trees in the light,
I can see late at night
Darling, I'm waiting to greet you,
Come to me, baby.

 

Spotlight, bad baby, you've got a flair

For the violentest kind of love anywhere out there
Mon amour, sweet child of mine,
You're divine.
Didn't anyone ever tell you
It's okay to shine?

 

Don't be afraid of me, don't be ashamed.
Walking away from my soft resurrection.
Idol of roses, iconic soul. I know your name.
Lead me to war with your brilliant direction.

 

I've ordered them by quality (in my opinion) "worst" to best. The whole bridge has some of her best lyrics :oprah:

The power of youth is on my mind
Sunset,small towns I'm out of time
Will you still love me when I shine
From words but not from beauty?
....
yet still inside I felt alone for reasons unknown to me

Living without you is like TV in black and white

You turned me on and brought color into my life

When I’m around you suddenly I realize

That I was blind before I saw the world through your eyes

 

(...)

 

 

I'm up a creek and you're my paddle

Where there is you there is my soul
Another dream where I'm the witness
I am the witness to your goal (I don't know if she actually wrote those lyrics but I guess she did)

These lyrics I have bonded strongly to over the years (and some recently if on LFL). I feel like they clarify my inner thoughts and wonders in my relationship and my own personal growth and journey of understanding of nature. Also, this is my 2000th post so I'm really glad I can sit back and have the time to really contemplate the lyrics that I have fallen in love with from the artist we are all here for.

 

 

 

We are heavy metal lions,

They will never understand

The kind of people you or I am.

Bow your heads and take your hands.

 

Spoiler

 

 

No one's gonna take my soul away...

 

Spoiler

 

 

Spotlight, bad baby, you've got a flair
For the violentest kind of love anywhere out there.

 

Don't be afraid of me
Don't be ashamed
Walk in the way of my soft resurrection
Idol of roses, iconic soul
I know your name
Lead me to war with your brilliant direction.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Life is beautiful but you don't have a clue. 

 

Spoiler

 

 

You're cold as ice, baby

But when you're on ice, baby
It's so amazing in every way
You're cold as ice, baby
I don't wanna fight, baby
It's like I told you If you stay, I'll stay.

 

Spoiler

 

 

I think we're like fire and water, I think we're like the wind and sea.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Even when the storms comesin the eye we'll stay.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Blue is the color of the planet from the view above

Long live our reign, long live our love
Green is the planet from the eyes of a turtle dove
'Til it runs red, runs red with blood

 

Spoiler

  

 

The rumbling from distant shores sends me to sleep

But the facts of life can sometimes make it hard to dream.

 

It's hot, hot, something bout this city

Don't now what it is, it makes my head get crazy.

Makes me feel like I can change

All of my evil ways and shit

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sick of it.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Every time that we run, we don't know what it's from

Now we finally slow down we feel close to it.

 

Spoiler

  

 

Take the dead out of the sea and the darkness from the arts.

"Lost but now I am found

I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find
All the answers, honey."------BTD

Wow I just posted those same lyrics! But I remember the very first time I heard it, I almost cried lol.

It was actually around this time five years ago.

Swan Song really speaks to me, especially these particular lines:

 

"The world can change in a day if you go away"

"Why work so hard when you can just be free?"

"Do you like where you've been and where you're going to?"
 

She really said it clear for me.

i remember listening to Swan Song for the first time, it was my favorite off of the entire record- it's still like #5/6 but i remember when i heard the bridge and the "do you like where you've been and where you're going to" i jus about broke

 

like who the fuck gave her the RIGHT to make me question my life on such short notice

 

n bitch i questioned it the entire time i was listening through it again :crai:
