We were Born to Die

Lana del Rey. I find her music so captivating. Her music reminds me very much of Kate Bush – esque tones and mystery. Dark tones yet filled and littered with provacative elements. One song I absolutely truly love is born to die, one of her first songs when she was coming out as an artist. It really aligned with me the words and the message behind the song. More or less every line of this song is relatable and one I could have written myself. If you have read my previous music posts you will see a lot of songs relate to me very well hahaha well the ones I choose to put on here ;). My favourite part of the song is as follows;

Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or design?
I feel so alone on the Friday nights
Can you make it feel like home, if I tell you you’re mine?
It’s like I told you honey

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh, let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Every word, relatable.

Aside from the words, the whole aura of the song, the mellow nature and smoothness of the intrumentals behind the words. It makes me so relaxed, and I can really think when listening to this song. It’s a dark song, that has the ability to make you sad, however it’s got that side which empowers you and makes you determined to carry on. Just like all of the Lanas catalogue and Believe me, there’s more Lana to come!

Born to Die

Why?
Who me?
Why?

Feet don’t fail me now
Take me to the finish line
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

Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or design?
I feel so alone on the Friday nights
Can you make it feel like home, if I tell you you’re mine?
It’s like I told you honey

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh, let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words
This is the last time
‘Cause you and I, we were born to die

Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn’t find
All the answers honey

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
‘Cause you and I
We were born to die [3x]

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

So don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane…
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
‘Cause you and I
We were born to die
