Lana Del Rey - Chemtrails Over The Country Club Lyrics






White Dress

Sun, stare, don't care with my head in my hands
Thinking of a simpler time
Like Sun Ra, feel small but I
Had it under control every time

When I was a waitress
Wearing a white dress
Look how I do this
Look how I got this
I was a waitress
Working the night shift
You were my man
Felt like I got this

Down at the men in music business conference
Down in Orlando, I was only nineteen
Down at the men in music business conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

Summer, sizzling, listening to
Jazz out on the lawn
Listened to white stripes
When they were white-hot
Listening to rock all day long

When I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Handling the heat
I wasn't famous
Just listening to Kings of Leon to the beat
Like look how I got this
Look how I got this
Just sing in the street
Down at the men in music business conference
I felt free 'cause I was only nineteen
Hey hey
Such a scene

Summer's, summer's almost gone
We were talkin' 'bout life
We were sitting outside 'til dawn
But I would still go back
If I could do it all again I'd fly
Because it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
'Cause it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
Somehow it made me feel
Made me feel like a god

When I was a waitress
Wearing a white dress
Look how I do this
Look how I got this
When I was a waitress
Working the night shift
You were my man
Felt like I got this

Down at the men in music business conference
Down in Orlando, I was only nineteen
Down at the men in music business conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

When I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Like look how I do it
Look how I got this
I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Like look how I do this
Look how I got this

Made me feel
Made me feel like a god
It kinda makes me feel
Like maybe I was better off
Because it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
Kinda makes me feel
Like maybe I was better off

Chemtrails Over the Country Club

I'm on the run with you, my sweet love
There's nothing wrong contemplating God
Under the chemtrails over the country club
Wearing our jewels in the swimming pool
Me and my sister just playing it cool
Under the chemtrails over the country club

Take out your turquoise and all of your jewels
Go to the market, the kids' swimming pools
Baby, what's your sign?
My moon's in Leo, my Cancer is sun
You won't play, you're no fun
Well, I don't care what they think
Drag racing my little red sports car
I'm not unhinged or unhappy, I'm just wild

I'm on the run with you, my sweet love
There's nothing wrong contemplating God
Under the chemtrails over the country club
Wearing our jewels in the swimming pool
Me and my sister just playing it cool
Under the chemtrails over the country club

Meet you for coffee at the elementary schools
We laugh about nothing as the summer gets cool
It's beautiful how this deep normality settles down over me
I'm not bored or unhappy, I'm still so strange and wild

You're in the wind, I'm in the water
Nobody's son, nobody's daughter
Watching the chemtrails over the country club
Suburbia, The Brentwood Market
What to do next? Maybe we'll love it
White picket chemtrails over the country club

My love, my love

Washing my hair, doing the laundry
Late-night TV, I want you only
Like when we were kids under chemtrails and country clubs
It's never too late, baby, so don't give up
It's never too late, baby, so don't give up
Under the chemtrails over the country club, yeah (you're born in December and I'm born in June)
You're born in December and I'm born in June (under the chemtrails over the country club, yeah)

My Cancer is sun and my Leo is moon
My Cancer is sun and my Leo is moon

Tulsa Jesus Freak

You should stay real close to Jesus
Keep that bottle at your hand, my man
Find your way back to my bed again
Sing me like a Bible hymn
We should go back to Arkansas
Trade this body for that can of gin
Like a little piece of heaven
No more candle in the wind

You should come back to our place, baby
Don't be afraid of our love
On the second floor, darling
In a second flat, hurry up

'Cause down in Arkansas
The stores are all closed
The kids in their hoodies
they dance super slow
We're white hot forever
And only God knows

You should stay real close to Jesus
Keep that bottle at your hand, my man
Find your way back to my bed again
Sing me like a Bible hymn
We should go back to Arkansas
Trade this body for that can of gin
Like a little piece of heaven
No more candle in the wind

We'll be white hot forever (forever, forever)
We're white hot forever (forever, forever)
We'll be white hot forever
And ever and ever
Amen

Could I come back to the ranch, baby?
I had to get away for a while
Just to rest my nerves, darling
Can I make you laugh with a smile?
You knew when you chose me
I was nothing but ordinary
And now the wind's blowing
Reminding you of what you know

You should stay real close to Jesus
Keep that bottle at your hand, my man
Find your way back to my bed again
Sing me like a Bible hymn
We should go back to Arkansas
Trade this body for that can of gin
Like a little piece of heaven
No more candle in the wind

We'll be white hot forever (forever, forever)
White hot forever (forever, forever)
White hot forever
And ever and ever
The end

White hot forever (forever, forever)
White hot forever (forever, forever)
White hot forever
And ever and ever
Amen

(You should stay that close to Jesus
Keep that bottle at your hand, my man
Find your way back to my bed again
Sing me like a Bible hymn
We should go back to Arkansas
Trade this body for that can of Gin
Like a little piece of heaven
No more candle in the wind)

Let Me Love You Like A Woman

I come from a small town, how about you?

I only mention it 'cause I'm ready to leave LA

And I want you to come

Eighty miles North or South will do

I don't care where as long as you're with me

And I'm with you and you let me



Let me love you like a woman

Let me hold you like a baby

Let me shine like a diamond

Let me be who I'm meant to be

Talk to me in poems and songs

Don't make me be bittersweet

Let me love you like a woman

Let me hold you like a baby

Let me hold you like a baby



I come from a small town far away

I only mention it 'cause I'm ready to leave LA

And I want (need) you to come

I guess I could manage if you stay

It's just if you do I can't see myself having any fun, so



Let me love you like a woman

Let me hold you like a baby

Let me shine like a diamond

Let me be who I'm meant to be

Talk to me in songs and poems

Don't make me be bittersweet

Let me love you like a woman

Take you to infinity

Let me love you like a woman (let me hold you like a baby)

Take you to infinity

Let me love you like a woman (let me hold you like a baby)

Take you to infinity



We could get lost in the purple rain

Talk about the good old days

We could get high on some pink champagne

Baby, let me count the waves



Let me love you like a woman

Let me hold you like a baby

Let me shine like a diamond

Let me be who I'm meant to be

Talk to me in songs and poems

Don't make me be bittersweet

Let me love you like a woman

Wild At Heart

What would you if I told you
You make me crazy
To see your pretty pics on Sunset Boulevard?
And it makes me lazy
So I smoke cigarettes
Just to understand the smog


I love you lots like polka dots
You're killing me more
Than coffee pots and insta-dots
With every just drop I pour
And if I had to do it all again
And I would because in the end
You brought me here to you

I love Calabasas, espaced all the ashes, went into the dark
And it made me wild, wild, wild at heart
The cameras have flashes
They cause the car crashes
But I'm not a star
If you love me, you love me
'Cause I'm wild, wild at heart
If they love me, they'll love me
Cause I'm wild, wild at heart

What would you do if I wouldn't sing for them no more?
Like if you heard I was out in the bars drinkin' Jack and coke
Going crazy for anyone who would listen to my stories, baby
Time after time I think about leaving
But you know that I never do just 'cause you keep me believin'

I love you lots, despite the odds
You're killing me John
And all these thoughts brought us apart
And that's okay too
'Cause even in the worst of times
You saw the best of me
And that's why I stay here with you


I love Calabasas, espaced all the ashes, went into the dark
And it made me wild, wild, wild at heart
The cameras have flashes
They cause the car crashes
But I'm not a star
If you love me, you love me
'Cause I'm wild, wild at heart
If they love me, they'll love me
Cause I'm wild, wild at heart

'Cause baby I'm wild at heart
If you love me, you love me
'Cause I'm wild at heart
Baby I'm wild, wild at heart
If they love me, they'll love me
Cause I'm wild, wild at heart
If they love me, they'll love me
Cause I'm wild, wild at heart

Dark But Just a Game

"It's dark but just a game"
That's what he would say to me
The faces aren't the same
But their stories all end tragically

Sweet, what-whatever, baby
And that's the price of fame
A tale as old as time, you'd be
Sweet, what-whatever, baby
A pretty little fool
To think exceptions to the rule
Just walk around
Like you and me this way

But life is sweet, what-whatever, baby
You gotta take them for what they've got
And while the whole world is crazy
We're getting high in the parking lot

We keep changing all the time
The best ones lost their minds
So I'm not gonna change
I'll stay the same
No rose left on the vines
Don't even want what's mine
Much less the fame
It's dark but just a game
It's dark but just a game

It's dark but just a game
So play it like a symphony
You know our love's the same
They'll both go down in infamy

I was a pretty little thing
Ain't got a lot to sing, but
Nothing came for me either one but pain
But f*ck it

Life is sweet, what-whatever, baby
Don't ever think it's not
While the whole world is crazy
We're making out in the parking lot

We keep changing all the time
The best ones lost their minds
So I'm not gonna change
I'll stay the same
No rose left on the vines
Don't even want what's mine
Much less the fame
It's dark but just a game

We keep changing all the time
The best ones lost their minds
So I'm not gonna change
I'll stay the same
No rose left on the vines
Don't even want what's mine
Much less the fame
It's dark but just a game
It's dark but just a game
It's dark but just

Not All Who Wander Are Lost

I've been wearing the same damn clothes
For three damn days
Lincoln, Nebraska's got me in a haze
The thing about men like you
Is you got a lot to say
But will you stay?

You say you got my name on your tattoo
Opening up doors, pulling out chairs, look at you
You talk to God like I do
I think you know the same secrets that I do
I'm talking 'bout

Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who wander
All those who wander
All those who wander are lost
Oh, no, no, no
It's just wanderlust

(Nope, that's good, okay)

The thing about being on the road
Is there's too much time to think
About seasons of old
As you pour yourself a drink
'Cause every time I said no
It wasn't quite what I meant
If you know what I mean

You say you got my name as your tattoo
Pulling out chairs, opening doors, look at you
You talk to people like I do
I think you know the same things that I do

Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who wander
All those who wander
All those who wander are lost
Oh, no, no, no
It's just wanderlust

Look at me and look at you
Look at what you made me do
Look at me and look at you
Bible on your tattoo
Look at me and look at you
Look at what you made me do
Look at me and look at you

Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who wander
All those who wander
All those who wander are lost
Oh, no, no, no
It's just wanderlust

(Nope, that's good, okay)
(Okay)

Yosemite

Seasons may change

But we won't change

Isn't it sweet how we know that already?

Winter to spring

Spring back to fall

Isn't it cool how nothing here changes at all?



You make me feel I'm invincible

Just like I wanted

No more candle in the wind

It's not like I'm invisible

Not like before when I

Was burning at both ends



We did it for fun, we did it for free

I did it for you, you did it for me

We did it for the right reasons

We did it for the right reasons



Seasons may change

But we won't change

Isn't it strange how different we are from all of our friends?

Seasons will turn

The world it will turn

The only thing we'll turn is the pages of all the poems we burn



Honey, you make me feel I'm invincible

It's just like I wanted

No more candle in the wind

It's not like I'm invisible

Like I was before

No more burning at both ends



Now, I do it for fun, I do it for free

I do it for you, you do it for me

We did it for the right reasons

We did it for the right reasons



I remember watching How Green Was My Valley

But I was thinking how deep was the canyon that you came from?

Television static was quite overwhelming

Was it because of the cabin, the candles in the wind?



We've done it for fun, we've done it for free

I showed up for you, you showed up for me

We did it for the right reasons

We did it for fun, we did it for free

When I was young 'til eternity

I'll do it for the right reasons

Withstanding all the time, changes and seasons



The right reasons

Breaking Up Slowly

Breaking up slowly is a hard thing to do
I love you only, but it's making me blue
So don't send me flowers like you always do
It's hard to be lonely, but it's the right thing

Are these my good years or do I have none?
Are there really good years for everyone?
I don't wanna live with a life of regret
I don't wanna end up like Tammy Wynette

'Cause breaking up slowly is a hard thing to do
I love you only, but it's making me blue
So don't send me flowers like you always do
It's hard to be lonely, but it's the right thing to do

George got arrested out on the lawn
We might be breaking up after this song
Will he still love me long after I'm gone?
Or did he see it coming all along?

'Cause breaking up slowly is a hard thing to do
I love you only, and it's making me blue
So don't send me flowers like you always do
It's hard to be lonely (baby, breaking up is hard to do)
Breaking up slowly (baby, breaking up is hard to do)
Breaking up slowly is a hard thing to do
I love you only, and it's making me blue
So don't send me flowers like you always do
It's hard to be lonely
But it's the right thing to do

Dance Till We Die

I'm coverin' Joni and dancin' with Joan
Stevie's callin' on the telephone
Cory almost burned down my home
But, God, it feels good not to be alone

But sometimes this ranch feels like my only friend
And life doesn't always work out like we planned
We keep it movin', babe

So we made it back in the middle of the night
To the Louisiana two-step high and bright
And we won't say when, we won't ask why
And we won't stop dancin' 'til we die

I'll keep walkin' on the sunny side
And we won't stop dancin' 'til we die

Troubled by my circumstance
Burdened by the weight of fame
Clementine's not just a fruit
It's my daughter's chosen name

And when all the bars close down tonight
There's one that stays open just for us, alright
We keep dancin', babe

So we made it back in the middle of the night
(We keep dancin', babe)
To the Louisiana two-step high and bright
(We keep movin', babe)
And we won't say when, we won't ask why
We won't stop dancin' 'til we die

We'll keep walkin' on the sunny side
And we won't stop dancin' 'til we die

I went down to Woodside
I left Berkley, out of city, out of mind
Killin' it, talkin' shit
Joan said she was gonna quit
Tearin' it up at the Afro-Caribbean two-step

I left San Francisco, I've been coverin' Joni
And I'm dancin' with Joan
It's kinda hard to find love
When you're used to rollin' like a rollin' stone

So we made it back in the middle of the night
(We keep movin', babe)
To the Louisiana two-step high and bright
(We keep dancin', babe)
And we won't say when, we won't ask why
We won't stop dancin' 'til we die

We'll keep walkin' on the sunny side
And we won't stop dancin' 'til we die
And we won't stop dancin' 'til we die

For Free

I slept last night in a good hotel
I went shopping today for jewels
The wind rushed around in the dirty town
And the children let out from their schools
I was standing on a noisy corner
Waiting for the walking green

Across the street he stood
And he played real good
On his clarinet for free

Now me I play for fortunes
And those velvet curtain calls
I got a black Limousine and two gentlemen
Who escort me through these halls
And I'll play if you've got the money
Or if you're a friend to me

But the one man band
By the quick lunch stand
He's been playing real good for free

Nobody stopped to hear him
Though he played so sweet and high
They knew he had never been on their TV
So they passed his music by
I meant to go over and ask for a song
Maybe put on a harmony
I heard his refrain
As the signal changed
He was playing real good for free
