Monologue to Lana Del Rey’s “Ride” Music Video

Some of my favorite excerpts from the monologue:

I was a singer, not a very popular one, who once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet- but upon an unfortunate series of events saw those dreams dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky that I wished on over and over again- sparkling and broken. But I didn’t really mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted and losing it to know what true freedom is.

When people I used to know found out what I had been doing, how I had been living- they asked me why. But there’s no use talking to people who have a home, they have no idea what it’s like to seek safety in other people, for home to be wherever you lie in your head. 

Every night I used to pray that I’d find my people- and finally I did- on the open road. We had nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore- except to make our lives into a work of art.
