Take me as I am. Don’t see me for what I’m not

If you do not know, I’m a huge Lana Del Rae fan, and she on Friday released her forth album Lust for Life. In one word, its amazing. I have listened to every song from start to finish, and every song I loved, thats rare for me and albums.

A song that grabbed my attention was God Bless America. I love the transcending vocals she gives in the Chorus.

God bless America
And all the beautiful women in it
God bless America
And all the beautiful women in it, may you
Stand proud and strong
Like Lady Liberty shining all night long
God bless America

Her vocals are piercing and deep and quite honestly give me goosebumps. She is an artist that strays from the norm and does her own thing and her own thing is amazing! The song also has a powerful meaning to it on the surface and deeply. It was apparently written before the women marches shortly after Trumps win last November. It has a feminist ring to it, which I love, but it isn’t a full one feminist track either which I also love. Its something that sounds innocent and not like much, however once you read between the lines the meaning becomes more and more obvious and elusive. Something I’ve always loved with Lanas music.

Below are the the lyrics to the song, I really suggest you go and listen to it, I’m sure you have if you are a fellow Lana fan like me xD

God Bless America – And All The Beautiful Women In It

Take me as I am
Take me, baby, in stride
Only you can save me tonight
There’s nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
You let me in, don’t leave me out
Or leave me dry

Even when I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I hear the sweetest melodies (sweetest melodies)
On the fire escapes of the city
Sounds like I am free
It’s got me singing

God bless America
And all the beautiful women in it
God bless America
And all the beautiful women in it, may you
Stand proud and strong
Like Lady Liberty shining all night long
God bless America

Take me as I am
Don’t see me for what I’m not
Only you can hear me tonight
Keep your light on, babe
I might be standing outside
You let me in, don’t leave me out
Or leave me dry

Even walking alone, I’m not worried
I feel your arms all around me (arms around me)
In the air on the streets of the city
Feels like I am free
It’s got me thinking

God bless America
And all the beautiful women in it
God bless America
And all the beautiful women in it, may you
Stand proud and strong
Like Lady Liberty shining all night long
God bless America (sweetest melodies)

Even with you I’ve got [?] lesson
So you’d better believe that nobody can make me feel lonely
Because I hear (sweetest melodies)
Even when you talk that talk with [?]
I’ll never feel, never feel lonely
I have no fear
It’s got me thinking (Yeah)

God bless America
And all the beautiful women in it
God bless America
And all the beautiful people in it
May they stand proud and strong
Like Lady Liberty shining all night long
God bless America
And all the beautiful people in it
And all the beautiful people in it
