Born 2 Die

My, who me, my
Feet don't fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Ohh 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 night
Can you make it feel like home,
if I tell you you're mine

Is 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,
Lets 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, so
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
Trying 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,
Lets 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 x3

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

Don't make me sad, don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough when the road gets tough
I don't know why
Keep making me laugh,
Lets 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 x2

Off To The Races

My old man is a bad man
But I can't deny the way he holds my hand
And he grabs me, he has me by my heart
He doesn't mind I have a Las Vegas past
He doesn't mind I have a L.A crass way about me
He loves with every beat of his cocaine heart

Swimming pool
Glimmering darling
Wipe bikini off with my red nail polish
Watch me in the swimming pool
Bright blue ripples, you
Sittin' sippin' on your black crystal, oh yeah

Light of my life, fire of my loins
Be a good baby, do what I want
Light of my life, fire of my loins
Gimme them gold coins
Gimme them coins

And I'm off to the races, cases
of Bacardi chasers,
Chasin' me all over town
Cause he knows I'm wasted, facin'
Time again on Rikers
Island and I won't get out

Because I'm crazy, baby
I need you to come here and save me
I'm your little scarlet, starlet
Singing in the garden,
Kiss me on my open mouth
Ready for you

My old man is, a tough man
But he got a soul as sweet as blood red jam
And he shows me, he knows me, every inch of my tar black soul
He doesn't mind I have a flat, broke-down life
In fact he says he thinks it's why he might like about me, admires me
The way I roll like a rolling stone

Likes to watch me in the glass room, bathroom
Chateau Marmont
Slippin' on my red dress, putting on my make up
Glass room, perfume, cognac, lilac
Fumes, says it feels like heaven to him

Light of his life, fire of his loins
Keep me forever, tell me you own me
Light of your life, fire of your loins
Tell me you own me, gimme them coins

And I'm off to the races, cases
of Bacardi chasers
Chasin' me all over town
Cause he knows I'm wasted, facin'
Time again on Rikers
Island and I won't get out

Because I'm crazy, baby
I need you to come here and save me
I'm your little scarlet, starlet
Singing in the garden,
Kiss me on my open mouth

Now I'm off to the races, laces
Leather on my waist is
Tight and I am falling down
I can see your face is, shameless
Cipriani's basement
Love you, but I'm going down

God I'm so crazy, baby
I'm sorry that I'm misbehaving
I'm your little harlot, starlet
Queen of Coney Island
Raising hell all over town
Sorry 'bout it

My old man is a thief, and
I'm gonna stay and pray with him 'til the end
But I trust in the decision of the Lord,
To watch over us
Take him when He may, if He may
I'm not afraid to say
That I'd die without him
Who else is gonna put up with me this way
I need you, I breathe you, I'll never leave you
They would rue the day, I was alone without you

You're lying with your gold chain on
Cigar hanging from your lips
I said "Hon' you never looked so beautiful
As you do now my man"

And we're off to the races, places
Ready, set, the gate is down
And now we're going in
To Las Vegas, pay us,
Casino Oasis,
Honey it is time to spin
Boy you're so crazy, baby
I love you forever
Not maybe
You are my one true love
You are my one true love

You are my one true love

Blue Jeans

Blue jeans, white shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like, James Dean, for sure
You're so fresh to death & sick as cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favourite sweater and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember
I will love you till the end of time

Big dreams, gangsta
Said you had to leave to start your life over
I was like - no please, stay here, we don't need no money, we could make it all work
But he headed out on Sunday, said he'd come home Monday
I stay up waitin', anticipatin', and pacing' but he was chasing paper
Caught up in the game - that was the last I heard

I will love you till the end of time I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember
Oh baby who I will love you till the end of time

You went out every night
And baby that's alright
I told you that no matter what you did I'd be by your side

'Cause imma ride or die
Whether you fail or fly
Well shit at least you tried
But when you walked out that door a piece of me died
Told you I wanted more, but that's not what I had in mind
Just want it like before
We were dancin' all night
Then they took you away, stole you out of my life
You just need to remember...

I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby can you see through the tears
Love you more than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember
I will love you till the end of time

Video Games

Swinging in the backyard
Pull up in your fast car
Whistling my name

Open up a beer
And you say get over here
And play a video game

I'm in his favorite sun dress
Watching me get undressed
Take your body downtown honey

I say you the bestest
Lean in for a big kiss
Put his favorite perfume on

Go play a video game

It's you, it's you, it's all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It's better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only way worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby now you do

Singing in the old bars
Swinging with the old stars
Living for the fame

Kissing in the blue dark
Playing pool and wild darts
Video games

He holds me in his big arms
Drunk and I am seeing stars
This is all I think of

Watching all our friends fall
In and out of Old Paul's
This is my idea of fun
Playing video games

It's you, it's you, it's all for you
Every little things that I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It's better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only way worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby now you do

(Now you do) (x6)

It's you, it's you, it's all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It's better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only way worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby now you do

(Now you do)

National Anthem

[intro]
Money is the anthem…of success
So before we go out
What's your address?

[lana del rey]
I'm your national anthem
God, you're so handsome
Take me to the hamptons
Bugatti Veyron
He loves to romance them
Reckless abandon
Holding me for ransom
Upper echelon
He says to be cool but
I don't know how yet
Wind in my hair
Hand on the back of my neck
I said, 'can we party later on?'
He said, 'yes, yes'

[chorus]
Tell me i'm your national anthem
(ooooh, yeah, baby, bow down
making me so wow, wow)
Tell me i'm your national anthem
(sugar, sugar, how now
take your body down town)
Red, white, blue's in the skies
Summer's in the air and
Baby, heaven's in your eyes
I'm your national anthem

[lana del rey]
Money is the reason
We exist
Everybody knows it, it's a fact
Kiss, kiss
I sing the national anthem
While i'm standing over your body
Hold you like a python
And you can't keep your hands off me
Or your pants on
See what you've done to me
Give me chevron

You said to 'be cool' but
I'm already coolest
You said to 'get real'
Don't you know who you're dealing with?
Um, do you think you'll buy me lots of diamonds?
(yes, also a gun)

[chorus]
Tell me i'm your national anthem
(ooooh, yeah, baby, bow down
making me so wow, wow)
Tell me i'm your national anthem
(sugar, sugar, how now
take your body down town)
Red, white, blue's in the skies
Summer's in the air and
Baby, heaven's in your eyes
I'm your national anthem

[bridge]
It's a love story for the new age
For the six page
Want a quick sick rampage?
Wining and dining
Drinking and driving
Excessive buying
Overdosing, dying
On our drugs and our love
And our dreams and our rage
Blurring the lines between real and the fake
Love again, lonely
I need somebody to hold me
We will do very well
I can tell, i can tell
Keep my safe in his bell tower, hotel

Money is the anthem of success
So put on mascara, and your party dress

I'm your national anthem
Boy, put your hands up
Give me a standing ovation
Boy, you is landing
Babe, in the land of
Sweetness and angel
Queen of saigon

[chorus]
Tell me i'm your national anthem
Ooh, yeah, baby, bow down
Making me so wow, wow
Tell me i'm your national anthem
Sugar, sugar, how now
Take your body down town
Red, white, blue's in the skies
Summer's in the air and
Baby, heaven's in your eyes
I'm your national anthem

[outro]
Money is the anthem
God, you're so handsome
Money is the anthem
Of success

Dark Paradise

All my friends tell me I should move on
I'm lying in the ocean, singing your song
Ahhh, that's how you sang it
Loving you forever, can't be wrong
Even though you're not here, won't move on
Ahhh, that's how we played it

And there's no remedy for memory your face is
Like a melody, it won't leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Every time I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Every time I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side

All my friends ask me why I stay strong
Tell 'em when you find true love it lives on
Ahhh, that's why I stay here

And there's no remedy for memory your face is
Like a melody, it won't leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Every time I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Every time I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you

But there's no you, except in my dreams tonight,
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh oh, ha ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight

There's no relief, I see you in my sleep
And everybody's rushing me, but I can feel you touching me
There's no release, I feel you in my dreams
Telling me I'm fine

Every time I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Every time I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you

But there's no you, except in my dreams tonight,
Oh oh oh oh, ha ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh oh, ha ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight

Radio

Not even they can stop me now
Boy I'd be flying overhead
Your heavy words can bring me down
Boy I've been raised from the dead

No one even knows how hard life was
I don't even think about it now because
I've finally found you
Now sing it to me

Now my life is sweet like cinnamon
Like a f*cking dream I'm living in
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)

Pick me up and take me like a vitamin
'Cause my body's sweet like sugar in the morning yeah
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)

American dream came true somehow
I swore I chase till I was dead
I heard the streets were paved with gold
That's what my father said

No one even knows what life was like
Now I'm in LA and it's paradise
I finally found you
Now sing it to me

Now my life is sweet like cinnamon
Like a f*cking dream I'm living in
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)

Pick me up and take me like vitamin
'Cause my body's sweet like sugar in the morning yeah
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)

On the radio, on the radio
Sweet like cinnamon
Like a f*cking dream I'm living in
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)
On the radio, on the radio
Sweet like cinnamon
Like a f*cking dream I'm living in
Finally found you
Now sing it to me

Now my life is sweet like cinnamon
Like a f-c-ing dream I'm living in
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)

Pick me up and take me like vitamin
'Cause my body's sweet like sugar in the morning yeah
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)

Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(how do you like me now?)

Carmen

Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself cause her liquour's top shelf
It's alarming honestly how charming she can be
Fooling everyone, telling how she's having fun

She says you don't want to be like me
Don't wanna see all the things i've seen
I'm dying, i'm dying
She says you don't want to get this way
Famous, and dumb, and no age
My, i'm dying

The boys, the girls, they all like carmen
She gives them butterflies, but too coconize
She laughs like god, her mind's like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she's still shining
Like lightning, light, like lightning

Carmen, carmen, staying up til morning
Only seventeen, but she walks the streets so mean
It's alarming truly how disarming you can be
Eating soft ice cream, coney island queen

She says you don't want to be like me
Looking for fun, get me high for free
I'm dying, i'm dying
She says you don't want to get this way
Street walking at night, and a star by day
It's tiring, tiring

The boys, the girls, they all like carmen
She gives them butterflies, but too coconize
She laughs like god, her mind's like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she's still shining
Like lightning, light, like lightning

Baby's all dressed up, with nowhere to go
That's the little story of the girl you know
Relying on the kindness of strangers
Time and cherry marks while doing party favours
Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on
Sing your song, song, now, the camera's on
And you're alive again

Mon amour, je sais que tu m'aimes aussi
Tu as besoin de moi, tu as besoin de...
Tu ne peux vivre sans moi
Et je mourrai sans toi, je tuerais pour toi

The boys, the girls, they all like carmen
She gives them butterflies, but too coconize
She laughs like god, her mind's like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she's still shining
Like lightning, light, like lightning

Like lightning, light, like lightning....

Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself cause her liquour's top shelf

Million Dollar Man

You said I was the most exotic flower
Holding me tight in our final hour
I don't know how you convince them and get them, boy
I don't know what you do
It's unbelievable
And I don't know how you get over, get over
Someone as dangerous, tainted and flawed as you

One for the money
Two for the show
I love you honey
I'm ready, I'm ready to go

How did you get that way?
I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant
You look like a million dollar man
So why is my heart broke?

You've got the world
But baby, at what price?
Something so strange
Hard to define

It isn't that hard boy
To like you or love you
I'd follow you down, down, down
You're unbelievable

If you're going crazy
Just grab me and take me
I'd follow you down, down, down
Anywhere, anywhere

One for the money
Two for the show
I love you honey
I'm ready, I'm ready to go

How did you get that way?
I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant
You look like a million dollar man
So why is my heart broke?

One for the money
Two for the show
I love you honey
I'm ready, I'm ready to go

How did you get that way?
I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant
You look like a million-dollar man
So why is my heart broke?

Summertime Sadness

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

Got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark (Drop it like it's hot -- in live performances) in the pale moonlight
Got my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey I'm on fire I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness

I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin' 'bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like your snare
Honey I'm on fire I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness

I think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies
Late is better than never
Even if you're gone I'm gonna drive, drive

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness

Kiss me hard before you go
Summer time sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness

This Is What Makes Us Girls

Remember how we used to party up all night?
Sneaking out and looking for a taste of real life.
Drinking in the small town firelight.

(Pabst blue ribbon on ice)

Sweet Sixteen and we had arrived
Walking down the streets as they whistle "hi, hi!"
Stealing police cars with the senior guys
Teachers said that we never make it out alive.

There she was, my new best friend
High heels in her hands
Swaying in the wind
Then she starts to cry
Mascara running down her little Bambi eyes
"Lana how I hate those guys"

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put love first
Something that we'd die for
It's our curse.
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together cause we put love first
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

It's not gonna happen.

And that's where the beginning of the end begun.
Everybody knew that we had too much fun
We were skipping school and drinking on the job
With the boss...

Sweet Sixteen and we had arrived.
Baby's table dancing at the local dive
Cheering our names in the pink spotlight
Drinking cherry Schnaps in the velvet night.

Then we used to go break in to the hotel pool
Glimmer and we'd swim
Running from the cops in our black bikini tops
Screaming 'Get us whilst we're hot,
Get us whilst we're hot!"

Come on, take a shot.

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put love first
Something that we'd die for
It's a curse.
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together cause we put love first
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

The prettiest in crowd that you had ever seen.
Ribbons in our hair and our eyes gleamed green.
A freshman generation of degenerate beauty queens

And you know something?

They were the only friends I ever had
We got into trouble and when stuff got bad
I got sent away.
I was waving on a train platform
Crying, because I know I'm never coming back.

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put love first
Something that we'd die for
It's a curse.
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together cause we put love first
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put love first
Something that we'd die for
It's a curse.
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together cause we put love first
Don't cry about it
Don't cry about it

Without You

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Everything I want I have:
Money, notoriety and rivieras.
I even think I found God
In the flash bulbs of the pretty cameras,
Pretty cameras, pretty cameras.
Am I glamorous? Tell me am I glamorous?

Hello? Hello?
C-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll
If you want to see me fall.
Boy, you're so dope,
Your love is deadly.
Tell me life is beautiful,
They all think I have it all.
I've nothing without you.
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you.

Summertime is nice and hot,
And my life is sweet like vanilla is.
Gold and silver line my heart
But burned into my brain are these stolen images,
Stolen images, baby, stolen images.
Can you picture it,
Babe, the life we could've lived?

Hello? Hello?
C-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll
If you like to see me fall.
Boy, you're so dope,
Your love is deadly.
Tell me life is beautiful,
They all think I have it all.
I've nothing without you.
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you.

We were two kids, just tryin' to get out,
Live on the dark side of the American dream.
We would dance all night, play our music loud,
When we grew up nothing was what it seemed.

Hello? Hello?
C-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll
If you like to see me fall.
Boy, you're so dope,
Your love is deadly.
Tell me life is beautiful,
They think that I have it all.
I've nothing without you.
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you.

Hello? Hello?
C-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll
If you like to see me fall.
Boy, you're so dope,
Your love is deadly.
Tell me life is beautiful,
They think that I have it all.
I've nothing without you.
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you.

All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing if I can't have you.

Lolita

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Would you be mine?
Would you be my baby tonight?
Could be kissing my fruit punch lips in the bright sunshine
'Cause I like quite a lot, everything you got
Don't you know? It's you that I adore
Though I make the boys fall like dominoes

Kiss me in the d-a-r-k dark tonight
(D-a-r-k, do it my way)
Kiss me in the p-a-r-k park tonight
(P-a-r-k, let them all say)

Hey Lolita, hey! Hey Lolita, hey!
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey Lolita, hey! Hey Lolita, hey!
Whistle all you want, but I'm not gonna stay
No more skipping rope skipping heartbeats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

I could be yours, I could be your baby tonight
Topple you down from your sky 40 stories high
Shining like a God, can't believe I caught you and so
Look at what I bought, not a second thought - oh, Romeo

Kiss me in the d-a-r-k dark tonight
(D-a-r-k, do it my way)
Kiss me in the p-a-r-k park tonight
(P-a-r-k, let them all say)

Hey Lolita, hey! Hey Lolita, hey!
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey Lolita, hey! Hey Lolita, hey!
Whistle all you want, but I'm not gonna stay
No more skipping rope skipping heartbeats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

I want my cake and I want to eat it too
I want to have fun and be in love with you
I know that I'm a mess with my long hair
And my suntan, short dress, bare feet, I don't care
What they say about me, what they say about me
Because I know that it's l-o-v-e
You make me happy, you make me happy
And I never listen to anyone
(Let them all say!)

Hey Lolita, hey! Hey Lolita, hey!
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey Lolita, hey! Hey Lolita, hey!
Whistle all you want, but I'm not gonna stay
No more skipping rope skipping heartbeats with the boys downtown
Just you

Lucky Ones

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Let's get out of this town, baby we're on fire
Everyone around here seems to be going down, down
If you stick with me, I can take you higher, and higher
It feels like all of our friends are lost
Nobody's found, found, found

I got so scared, I thought no one could save me
You came along scooped me up like a baby

Every now and then, the stars align
Boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones

Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time

Boy get into my car, got a bad desire
You know that we'll never leave if we don't get out, now, now
You're a careless con, and you're the crazy liar
But baby, nobody can compare to the way you get down, down, down

I tried so hard to act nice like a lady
You taught me that it was good to be crazy

Every now and then, the stars align
Boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones

Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time

Feels like, feels like, you know, it feels like
Falling in love for the first time
Feels like, you know, it feels like
Falling in love

Every now and then, the stars align
Boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones

Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time

Ride

(The Paradise Edition Track)

I've been out on that open road
You can be my full time, daddy
White and gold
Singing blues has been getting old
You can be my full time, baby
Hot or cold

Don't break me down
I've been travelin' too long
I've been trying too hard
With one pretty song

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
So, I just ride
Just ride, I just ride, I just ride

Dying young and I'm playing hard
That's the way my father made his life an art
Drink all day and we talk 'til dark
That's the way the road dogs do it, ride 'til dark.

Don't leave me now
Don't say good bye
Don't turn around
Leave me high and dry

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride
Just ride, I just ride, I just ride

I'm tired of feeling like I'm f*cking crazy
I'm tired of driving 'till I see stars in my eyes
I look up to hear myself saying,
Baby, too much I strive, I just ride

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride
Just ride, I just ride, I just ride

American

(The Paradise Edition Track)

Play house, put my favorite record on
Get down, get your Crystal Method on
You were like, tall, tan, drivin' around the city
Flirtin' with the girls like, "You're so pretty."
"Springsteen is the king, don't you think?"
I was like, "Hell yeah, that guy can sing."

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh-oh

Just like a baby, spin me 'round like a child
Your skin so gold and brown

Like an American
Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh ooh ooh-ooh
Like an American
Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh ooh ooh-ooh

You were way ahead of the trend, get get it
Elvis is the best, hell yes
Honey put on that party dress
Oh oh oh ohooh

You make me crazy, you make me wild
Just like a baby, you spin me round like a child
Your skin so gold and brown

Cola (Pussy)

(The Paradise Edition Track)

My pussy tastes like Pepsi cola,
My eyes are wide like cherry pies.
I gots a taste for men who're older,
It's always been so it's no surprise.

Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy (I come alive at night)
All he wants to do it party with his pretty baby.

Come on baby, let's ride
We can escape the great sunshine.
I know your wife and she wouldn't mind
We made it out to the other side [x3]
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, baby.

I fall asleep on an American flag
I wear my diamonds on skid row
I pledge allegiance to my dad
For teaching me everything he knows

Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy (I come alive at night)
All he wants to do it party with his pretty baby

Come on baby, let's ride
We can escape the great sunshine.
I know your wife and she wouldn't mind
We made it out to the other side [x3]
Come on, come on
Come on, come on, baby

Body Electric

(The Paradise Edition Track)

Elvis is my daddy, Marilyn's my mother,
Jesus is my bestest friend.
We don't need nobody, we got each other,
At least I pretend.

We get down every Friday night,
Dancin' and grindin' in the pale moonlight.
Grand all the prayer, feelin' alright,
She prays the rosary for my broken mind.

[Chorus:]
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric.
I'm on fire, baby, I'm on fire.

Whitman is my daddy, Monaco's my mother,
Diamonds are my bestest friend.
Heaven is my baby, suicide's her father,
Opulence is the end.

We get down every Friday night,
Dancin' and grindin' in the pale moonlight.
Grand Ole Opry, feelin' alright,
She prays the rosary for my broken mind.

[Chorus:]
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric.
I'm on fire, baby, I'm on fire.

My clothes still smell like you,
All the photographs say, that we're still young.
I pretend I'm not hurt,
I walk about the world like I'm havin' fun.
We get crazy every Friday night,
I drop it like it's hot in the pale moonlight.
And when I pray, I'm feelin' alright,
She's swayin' softly, to her heart's delight.

I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric.
I'm on fire, sugar, I'm on fire.
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric, baby.

Blue Velvet

(The Paradise Edition Track)

She wore Blue Velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light
From the stars

She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet were her eyes
Warmer than May her tender sighs
Love was ours

Ours a love I held tightly
Feeling the rapture grow
Like a flame burning brightly
But when she left gone was the glow of

She wore Blue Velvet
But in my heart there'll always be
Precious and warm a memory through the years
And I still can see Blue Velvet through my tears

[Instrumental]

She wore Blue Velvet
But in my heart there'll always be
Precious and warm a memory through the years
And I still can see Blue Velvet through my tears

She wore Blue Velvet
But in my heart there'll always be
Precious and warm a memory through the years
And I still can see Blue Velvet through my tears

Gods & Monsters

(The Paradise Edition Track)

In the land of Gods and Monsters
I was an angel
Living in the garden of evil
Screwed up, scared, doing anything that I needed
Shining like a fiery beacon

You got that medicine that I need
Fame, liquor, love, give it to me slowly
Put your hands on my waist do it softly
Me and God, we don't get along, so now I sing

No one's gonna take my soul away
Living like Jim Morrison
Heading towards a f*cked up holiday
Motel, sprees, sprees, and I'm singing

F*ck yeah, give it to me
This is heaven
What I truly want
Is innocence lost?
Innocence lost?

In the land of Gods and Monsters
I was an angel
Looking to get f*cked hard
Like a groupie incognito
Posing as a real singer
Life imitates art

You got that medicine that I need
Dope, shoot it up, straight to the heart please
I don't really wanna know what's good for me
God's dead, I said 'Baby that's alright with me'

No one's gonna take my soul away
Living like Jim Morrison
Heading towards a f*cked up holiday
Motel, sprees, sprees, and I'm singing

F*ck yeah, give it to me
This is heaven
What I truly want
Is innocence lost?
Innocence lost?

When you talk, it's like a movie and you're making me crazy
'Cause life imitates art

If I get a little prettier, can I be your baby?
You tell me life isn't that hard

No one's gonna take my soul away
Living like Jim Morrison
Heading towards a f*cked up holiday
Motel, sprees, sprees, and I'm singing

F*ck yeah, give it to me
This is heaven
What I truly want
Is innocence lost?
Innocence lost?

Bel Air

(The Paradise Edition Track)

Gargoyles, standing, at the front of your gate.
Trying to tell me to wait,
But I can't wait to see you.

So I run, like I'm mad, to heaven's door.
I don't wanna be bad,
I wont cheat you no more.

Roses, Bel Air, take me there,
I've been waiting to meet you.
Palm trees, in the light, i can see, late at night
Darling I'm willing to greet you,
Come to me baby.

Spotlight, bad baby, you've got a flare
For the violent-est kind of love anywhere out there

Now I'm lost, sweet child of mine,
You're divine.
Didn't anyone ever tell you,
It's okay to shine?

Roses, Bel Air, take me there,
I've been waiting to meet you.
Palm trees in the light,
I can see, late at night.
Darling I'm willing to greet you,
Come to me baby.

Don't be afraid of me,
Don't be ashamed.
Walk in the way of my soft resurrection.
I know the roses, I've counted so,
I know your name.
Lead me to war with your brilliant direction.

Roses Bel Air, take me there,
I've been waiting to meet you.
Palm trees in the light,
I can see, late at night.
Darling I'm willing to greet you,
Come to me baby.

Roses Bel Air, take me there,
I've been waiting to meet you.
Grenadine sunshine, and it fades sublime.
Darling I'm willing to greet you,
Come to me baby.

Every Saturday night I get dressed up to ride for you, baby
Cruising down the street on Hollywood and Vine for you, baby
