15 Lana Del Rey Lyrics That Kind Of Make You Believe In Love (But Definitely Make You Believe In Lana)
Lana Del Rey is the queen of all things sultry, the goddess of lust and angst. She occasionally throws in a bit about love but, for the most part, Lana Del Rey isn't an artist who puts out songs you dedicate to your bae. The guy who got away or the bad boy who stomped on your heart, sure. But your soulmate? Nah. If you pore over Lana's music though, you are bound to stumble across some words of wisdom. I've compiled 15 Lana Del Rey lyrics about love that'll kind of renew your faith in the idea of soulmates (but just barely).
Because, let's be real, it's not a true Lana Del Rey song if it doesn't end with Lana being kinda depressed. A word to the wise, don't ever listen to Lana Del Rey after a breakup because it will make your angst a million times worse.
Thankfully, though, LDR occasionally gives us a reprieve from her mostly depressing lyrics. Sometimes, but not that often, Lana Del Rey gives us a glimmer of hope at the end of the rainbow and it's those fleeting moments that almost make us believe in love again. Here are Lana Del Rey's secretly positive lyrics of love that might renew your faith in love (or at least, will remind you of how much you love Lana).
“I would do anything for you, babe/Blessed is this union/Crying tears of gold like lemonade” — "Ultraviolence"
Love so blessed it makes you cry sweet, sweet sugar-laden tears of gold.
"Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful?/Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul?/I know you will, I know you will" — "Young and Beautiful"
This one doesn't seem like it should be asking too much but, for Lana's men, this does seem like a big step.
"I'm gonna stay and pray with him til the end/But I trust in the decision of the Lord/To watch over us/Take him when he may, if He may/I'm not afraid to say/That I'd die without him" — "Off To The Races"
This screams a bit co-dependent to me... but she does seem like she loves him? Or is possibly just obsessed?
"You push it hard, I pull away, I'm feeling hotter than fire/I guess that no one ever really made me feel that much higher/Te deseo, cariño, boy it's you I desire" — "West Coast"
She loves him in multiple languages.
See what I mean about dat lust?"Come and take a walk on the wild side/Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain" — "Born To Die"
"It's you, it's you, it's all for you/Everything I do/I tell you all the time/Heaven is a place on earth with you" — "Video Games"
Lana's not always synonymous with "love" but this is one case where those two go hand-in-hand.
"I will love you 'til the end of time/I would wait a million years/Promise you'll remember that you're mine" — "Blue Jeans"
I'm not sure if I would wait a million years for a dude I had to remind that he was with me.
"Take your body downtown/Red, white, blue's in the sky/Summer's in the air and/Baby heaven's in your eyes" — "National Anthem"
Those must be some dreamy eyes.
"Cooking up a dream, turning diamonds into snow/I feel you, pretty baby, feel me/Turn it up hot, loving you is free" — "Florida Kilos"
Something tells me that loving Lana isn't exactly free.
"Boy you're so dope/Your love is deadly/Tell me life is beautiful/They all think I have it all/I've nothing without you"— "Without You"
As sexy as she might sound, I'm not sure if I'd rely on Lana for love advice.
“I could be yours, I could be your baby tonight/Topple you down from your sky 40 stories high/Shining like a God, can’t believe I caught you and so/ Look at what I bought, not a second thought — oh, Romeo” — "Lolita"
It seems only fitting that Lana would be taking inspiration from Lolita, one of the most troubled tales of love that has ever existed.
“Oh my heart it breaks every step that I take/But I’m hoping at the gates/They’ll tell me that you’re mine” — ”Born To Die”
Lana hopes that when she gets to those pearly gates, she'll have earned his love.
“You make me crazy, you make me wild/Just like a baby, spin me ‘round like a child/Your skin so golden brown/Be young, be dope, be proud” — ”American”
I don't know about Lana's muse in this song might feel about her but she's won my heart with her fervent use of "dope."
“Mon amour, sweet child of mine/You’re divine/Didn’t anyone ever tell you/It’s OK to shine?” — ”Bel Air”
You know it's real when she sings in the language of love.
"Precious and warm, a memory through the years." — "Blue Velvet"
Their love might not last forever but their memories will.
