What SHOULD the lyric HAVE been?

"What if someone had asked Picasso not to be sad" should've been "What if someone had asked you not to be sad"

 

no, this alters the meaning of the song/line. her point is, Picasso, who is regarded as one of the greatest artists of all time, created much of his work out of the bleak darkness of his depression. she is essentially saying "if he hadn't felt that way, the art we enjoy so much wouldn't have existed, just like my songs wouldn't if I wasn't sad." It's a bit of a controversial take (the whole you need to be tortured to be an artist trope), but your line alters the meaning to "how would U like it if someone asks u not to be sad when ur sad -_-"

But that's what it really is

:smile3:

My impression was it is Harvey in the sky seeing as she retired use of the song. Why would she do that otherwise?

"Whatever’s on tonight‚ I just wanna party with you / Topanga's hot tonight‚ I'm taking off my bathing suit / You make me feel like there's something that I never knew I wanted" should've been "You did it all for fame, tell me how it treats you now / You did it all for fame, how does that taste coming out? / You did it all for fame / Baby, how's life treating you now? It's over" and i don't care what anybody says :blanche2:

First verse

“Ever since I fell out of love with you, I fell back in love with the city
Like the Paramount sign sparkling, sparkling just for me”

 

Second verse

“Ever since I fell out of love with you, I fell back in love with the streets sea
And God, does it feel sweet, like a summer breeze”

"I'm always going to be right here, no one's going anywhere" should've been "I'm always going to be right here, no one's going to disappear"

also the choruses should went like "this is how you disappear" "this is how they disappear" like her live versions

You beat me to it! I rushed to post this but I'm late I guess lol.

Yeah, the demo chorus from TNBAR is the superior :true::oprah3::nails: 


"I'm wild, I'm free, no man can handle me."

Unpopular opinion, but I actually like the rewritten chorus on TNBAR. I think her vocal delivery on it has something to do with that. But I do think the pre-chorus should've been left as it was. The rewritten one sounds kind of repetitive and like she didn't really know what to say there

i love lana and there are times i question her lyric choices. but i ultimately don't think i could change anything.
 

but there's a song i'm obsessed with by Miss Madeline, it's a banger called "Platinum"

and the whole song is wonderful melodically. i only wish for a slight lyric change

 

she says 

"Write me a love song, make it an album

I know this one could go platinum"

Write me a love song, fuck it-- an album

I know this one could go platinum"

 

but i think it would have been cooler to say in the second half

"Write me a love song, make it an anthem

I know this one will go platinum"

 

but who am i? everybody's songwriting is different. and this song still has a grip on me,.

Cuz that’s where I think the song is going every time I hear her say that :toofloppy:

Well fuck

I thought that line in Beautiful was, "eccentricity's holding me back" (not "he's interested, he's holding me back") and I like mine better so I'm going to pretend

:agree:

Maybe S*** constantly wore synthetic jumpers that gave off static

We can add that to all the other HORRIBLE qualities he clearly had :agree:
