10 Days of Lana Del Rey Challenge:
Day 7: Favorite Lana Del Rey Lyric
Ahh, this is another hard one. Her lyrics are so lyrically beautiful. The 2 songs I had to choose between choosing my favorite lyric were ‘Oh Say Can You See’ and ‘Pawn Shop Blues’! I love dem both songs, whether it’s the lyrics and the tune of it, it’s just blends in so perfectly and flawlessly together.
And I chose ‘Pawn Shop Blues’ over the latter because… it kind of defines her music more than the others, because the lyrics instantly reminds me of something she mentioned in one of interviews, “I am usually always singing about the same god damn person so I will love him forever but you know, it’s all good. It’s all good!” And this is it>>>
“Cause it’s nice to love and be loved, but it’s better to know all you can know. I said it’s nice to love and be loved but I’d rather know what God knows.”
Here for the full lyrics.
