Nah, that's definitely not the case. There was a period from about 2011 to 2014 where Lana was trying to sell a lot of her back catalogue of unreleased songs as demos for other artists. Break My Fall was going to be on Diana Vickers' album but got scrapped when Lana's version leaked, for example. Meet Me in the Pale Moonlight was on a pitch site for sale in 2014 and that track was probably at least three or four years old when she was trying to sell it.

yeah but those artists should be coming up with their own songs and not copying other singers lmao, i mean i guess it sucks if lana is trying to make money off of them considering they are her songs after all but her current music is making tons anyway so

Red is the color of your mouth when you drink rum punch.
You like to lay in yellow sun.  
And red are the color of your eyes when you drink too much.
You pack your place, you pack a punch.

 

 

These lyrics are so haunting. I love it. Except for the first line, i don't like the rum punch part, and how it rhymes with punch again in the last line  :toofunny:

 

But god, I dont care about Life is Beautiful anymore, GIVE ME THIS

I think this is especially incredible to me because the released version is so coolly blue, but the original is apparently deep red :deadbanana: the change is so stark and opposite

They removed the lyrics from the article, maybe they realized it was new information.

I really like the line - And red are the color of your eyes when you drink too much. - but the rest is meh. I would still like to here it tho. Maybe the production and her voice would make up for the mediocre lyrics.

copying is not the really word 

 

this practice is as old as the music industry. Producers, songwiters, etc sell their lyrics, stems, arrangements, etc. to make money. you "shop" around your product in the industry hoping someone notices it and buys it for their own.

I want darker lyrics for her next album, too much sugar in her songs recently.

I don't really think it suits her style. :horror:
