Pretty When You Cry

Recommended Posts

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

I'll wait for you, babe
It's all I do, babe
You don't come through, babe
You never do

Because I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry

All those special times I spent with you my love
They don't mean shit compared to all your drugs
But I don't really mind, I've got much more than that
Like my memories, I don't need that

I'll wait for you, babe
You don't come through, babe
You never do, babe
It's just what you do

Because I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry

Don't say you need me when
[You're leaving/you leave me?] you leave again
I'm stronger than all my men
Except for you

Don't say you need me if
You realize you're leaving
I can't do it, I can't do it
But you do it well

'Cause I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry

These are the RIGHT lyrics babes

 

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.
 
I'll wait for you, babe
it's all I do, babe
Don't come through, babe
you never do
 
Cause I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
 
All those special times
I spent with you, my love
They don't mean shit
compared to all your drugs
 
But I don't really mind
I've got much more than that
Like my memories
I don't need that
 
I'll wait for you, babe
don't come though, babe
You never do, babe
that's just what you do
 
Cause I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
 
Don't say you need me when
you leave and you leave again
I'm stronger than all my men
except for you
 
Don't say you need me here
You leave us, you're leaving
And I can't do it, I can't do it
But you do it well
 
'Cause I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
Pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
 
Pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry
I'm pretty when I cry

This song is a fucking lustrous bop, its so chill and mellow, and the chorus really hits me even though its so plain, the echoes five it such a simple seduction feel that ugh :orgasm:

It should be called Pretty When I Cry


I disagree, I like it as you because it sounds like the guy is telling her that; he's saying 'you're pretty when you cry', which she reiterates throughout the song itself as 'i'm pretty when i cry' in a sort of warped sense. If the title had been I, it would've seemed as if Lana had come up with this validation herself. By saying you, it makes it seem that the guy has warped Lana's sense of judgement to make her think that she is most attractive when she is upset - it's essentially an excuse for the guy's negligence of Lana and his use of narcotics.

Basically, 'Pretty When I Cry' is the twisted self from the Born to Die era. 'Pretty When You Cry' is the self that has been twisted through drugs and others; this is the Ultraviolence era.

My theory is that both CW and PWYC where chords already titled by Blake (like Charli XCX's "Grins"), and Lana took some inspiration from those titles ~ "let the light in - it's a cruel world" + "pretty when I cry" but idk

There's one line in the bridge that I can't decipher -

...
I'm stronger than all my men
Except for you
Don't say you need me if
You xxxxxxx
I can't do it, I can't do it
But you do it well

Some one have that line?

i've always not been sure but I just listened to that part on repeat 20 times and i'm 100% certain of these now

 

Don't say you need me when

you leave and you leave again

I'm stronger than all my men, except for you

 

Don't say you need me here,

yelling that you're leaving,

I can't do it, I can't do it

but you do it well

It sounds so much more like "you leave last, you're leaving" to me. I cannot hear "yelling that you're leaving" at all. There is DEFINITELY  a V sound.

I also hear this. Cuz "Yelling" would be pronounced really awkard like "yell-ING"


Lana once called me sweetheart so that's that
