Is it chickens or Jake? Lana doesn’t really know a Jake but it could be Jason Pickens, Chuck’s baby daddy, shortened for the sake of syllables. Chickens already run bare feet 

I heard Charlie!

Lana has called Chuck "Chicken" as a nickname so I'm assuming she is saying chicken as in Chuck, especially since she mentions her the line before x

This one is my favorite of the three. It's so personal and bittersweet that it breaks my heart. I find it interesting that in the end it's not her new man that's painting her banisters, but her "sisters."

This song feels like a progression from White Dress + Chemtrails (title track). A deeper dive, more transparently into the present, sort of stream-of-consciousness, heartbreaking and sweet at the same time. I wonder if this will be Track 1 on the new album.

Am I the only one who thought of the chorus of “Without You” when Lana sang “And be happy, and that scared me”??? Am I imagining things or does anyone else feel that way? The melodies are kinda similar imo

My favorite part of Blue Banisters is the outro:

 

Summer comes, Winter goes
Spring I skip, God knows
Summer comes, Winter goes
Spring I sleep, Heaven knows
Every time it turns to May
All my sisters fly to me
To paint, paint

I think BB is my favorite solely because of this bit

 

Said he'd come back every May

Just to help me if I'd paint my banisters blue

Blue banisters, ooh

Said he'd fix my weathervane

Give me children, take away my pain

And paint my banisters blue

My banisters blue

 

This is one of Lana's most beautiful and honest lyrics to date. And it's so romantic and happy, it makes me happy for her

I wonder what she means with that:

Summer comes, Winter goes
Spring I skip, God knows
Summer comes, Winter goes
Spring I sleep, Heaven knows

She’s truly living the Midwesterner life right in Cali :xgiggle:

I’m in tears… I just went through the experience of having to let someone I loved dearly go and listening to Blue Banisters really gives me comfort but pain in some odd way. Lanas vulnerability in the chorus is so haunting and beautiful, it gives you hope almost for anybody who’s gotten away from you.
