Your Girl Lana

Mermaid Motel

Recommended Posts

Maybe we could go to Coney Island
Maybe I could sing the national anthem
Buy a white sweater for the last white day of the summer
Buy my purple wig for my mermaid video
Walk back to where we live in my motel
On Neptune Avenue

You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off
You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off

Maybe we could go to Sway Tokyo
Or see Van Halen at the reunion show
Heavy metal hour on T.V.
Diamond Dave and Ray Lee
And you salute me, Miss America
Because I am, I am

You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off
You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off

Maybe we could go to Coney Island
Maybe I could sing you to sleep
God bless the universe, god bless the ocean
God bless you and god bless me (x2)

You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off
You call me lavender, you call me sunshine
You say take it off, take it off

One of my favorites actually, the vocals are just perfection, and I love the instrumental too. The layering of her high voices make it truly soothing and sensual. I can't.

is she talking about labor day in the beginning (i think she is)

i know it's one line, but if she is referencing labor day, then it's the most poetic way of stating it. god bless this song.

does anyone know what the "mermaid video" line is referencing? it cant be about the video for this song becuz she's writing about something she did in the past? 

i want more lana music to be written like this plz(with better production quality)
