Lana Del Rey "Honeymoon" Are About A Dangerous Relationship That You Can't Walk Away From — LISTEN
It's no industry secret that Lana Del Rey is the queen of music that makes you want to drink red wine, sit in a bath tub, and think about your life for a really, really long time. The LA-based songstress just dropped a new single, and the Lana Del Rey song, "Honeymoon" is... well, oh-so-very Lana Del Rey. The lyrics first fool you into thinking it's a sweet love song, but then, as Lana croons on, there's a much darker and tortured side to the story. The lyrics are all about two people who are wrong for each other, who shouldn't be together, but can't seem to pull away from each other. It's that toxic, addictive kind of love — you know, the kind you swear to your friends is good for you because you "really get him," while they're all rolling their eyes and reminding you that he sleeps on a mattress on the floor.
The song starts off with the line, "We both know that it's not fashionable to love me, but you don't go cause truly there's no one for you but me." It's self-depricating and suffocating all at once. RED FLAG ALERT! Bad relationship... run Lana, run! Things for Lana and her lover keep going downhill from there. Not only is there a repetition of "Dark blue," and "Say you want me too," we discover that, "We both know the history of violence that surrounds you."
Oh no... this man is a project. Save yourself some time, he can't be saved or "fixed." But does she walk away? NO! Of course not. The song gets nearer to its close with, "There are roses in between my thighs and fire that surrounds you," which explains a lot about this love affair. The sex is great. But, unfortunately, that's not enough to make up for what's really wrong here, "It's no wonder every man in town has has neither fought nor found you — everything you do is elusive to even your honey dew." He's one of THOSE kinds. You know the guy that just shows up when it's convenient, makes you feel passionate fire, but then hides away as soon as things get real.
We've all had these kinds of bad relationships and oh, does "Honeymoon" really nail the euphoric misery they create. Check out the lyrics below:
