For You

Recommended Posts

All these feelings I'm tired of them

Ruling over my life again

Emotions aren't my friend

I keep them ordered as best I can

 

I can, you can, we can, [do?] can

Keep it all together

Layman, workman, his man, her man

How about about the weather?

 

All these people I'm tired of them

Sifting into my life again

Their questions, the how and when

I try and answer the best that I can but

 

I can, you can, we can, [do?] can

Keep it all together

Layman, workman, his man, her man

How about about the weather?

 

[All/Oh,?] my worries, they come and go

They tend to leave when I let you know

On bad days I take it slow

I try to dance when I hit a low

 

I can, you can, we can, [do?] can

Keep it all together

[Hitman/hit man?], [burn man?], his man, her man

It will all get better

 

Oh, the days they go so fast

I can't believe what is in my past

The future's here at last

I don't need to have what she has

 

I can, you can, we can, [do?] can

Keep it all together

[Hitman/hit man?], [burn man?], his man, her man

It will all get better

 

Sing it out

Sing it loud

Sing it out

Sing it loud

Be proud

Come out

Be proud

Come out

 

I can, you can, we can, [do?] can

Keep it all together

[Hitman/hit man?], [burn man?], his man, her man

We can make it better, yeah

We will have it better

Stalking you has sorta become like my occupation.

Lizzy's long lost gay anthem.  :oprah:  Eat your heart out Gaga. Stefani, you suck.

inb4 I make a "Did Dan Savage plagiarize Lana Del Rey?" thread. :thumb:

How much you wanna bet she played this at her Cattyshack gig?

 

Hmm, maybe there's something to @@lola's conspiracy theory after all. #LezzyGrant

 

I can't believe what is in my past

#vague as usual :pls: :sideeye:

 

[Hitman/hit man?], [burn man?]

:hdu: Drug references or an admission of murder?

I think the syntax is more like so:

I can, you can, we can do

Can keep it all together

 

Rather than "do can" (whatever that is)

This makes sense on paper, but not when you actually listen to it, her phrasing and where she takes her breaths. Nope, this is just Lana ignoring the rules of English grammar again.

 

Don't get me wrong. There's nothing inherently wrong with breaking grammar rules. Poets and songwriters have been doing that for centuries.

Or perhaps adhering to the rules but taking a break at that moment to sound better

Maybe I'm just reading too much into her lyrics sometimes, but when I heard the first verse, I thought of a line from Morrissey's "Dial-a-Cliché"

 

And you find that you've organized your feelings for people

Who didn't like you then, and do not like you now.

 

Honestly, I frequently find associations between Morrissey/The Smiths and Lana in their lyrics. Does anyone know if Lana happens to be a fan?

We are talking about Lana, when does she ever follow grammar rules?  :smokes3:  (jokingly saying this)

Does anybody else think that 'For You' might be an alternative name for 'For Charlie'? To me, it sounds like she is singing more about a close friend/family member as opposed to a boyfriend, so it sorta fits...

I do find some similarities too. I think she likes The Smiths. Saw a quote from There Is A Light... in her yfrog album once and it made my day!
