Musings: 100 x Lana Del Rey Lyrics for Your Instagram Captions

Lana Del Rey is one of my all-time favourite artists of the past few years. I remember writing about her on this blog way back in 2012 and I am so glad she’s stuck around. Her music and whole essence has a cinematic quality to it and deals with America, glamour, the blues and interesting relationships. Her lyrics are descriptive, bold, unusual and bring a visual realm to her songs.

Unlike my Drake IG caption post, there are actually 100 lyrics below… 

  1. Lost but now I am found (Born to Die)
  2.  Heaven is a place on earth with you (Video Games)
  3. You’re so Art Deco, out on the floor
    Shining like gun metal, cold and unsure
    Baby, you’re so ghetto
    You’re looking to score (Art Deco)
  4. Time after time, writing my lines
    Having my baby there next to me
    It’s so sweet, pouring you a drink (Groupie Love)
  5.  He doesn’t mind I have a Las Vegas past, he doesn’t mind I have a LA crass (Off to the Races)
  6. Boys, don’t forget your toys
    And take all of your money
    If you find you’re in a foreign land
    Boys, don’t make too much noise
    And don’t try to be funny
    Other people may not understand (When The World Was At War We Kept Dancing)
  7. Mon amour, sweet child of mine,
    You’re divine.
    Didn’t anyone ever tell you
    It’s OK to shine? (Bel Air)
  8. Packing all my things for the summer
    Lying on my bed it’s a bummer
    Cause I didn’t call when I got your number
    But I liked you a lot (White Mustang)
  9. All I wanna do is get high by the beach
    Get high by the beach, get high
    All I wanna do is get by by the beach
    Get by baby, baby, bye, bye (High By The Beach)
  10. He’s got the fire and he walks with fame,
    He’s got the fire and he talks with fame. (Sad Girl)
  11. Putting on my music while I’m watching the boys (Music To Watch Boys To)
  12. There are violets in your eyes
    There are guns that blaze around you
    There are roses in between my thighs and fire that surrounds you
    It’s no wonder every man in town had neither fought nor found you (Honeymoon)
  13. You gonna hit me like a lightning (White Mustang)
  14. 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)
  15. Pink flamingos always fascinated me
    I know what only the girls know
    Hoes with lies akin to me (Music To Watch Boys To)

    It’s like smiling when the firing squad’s against you
    And you just stay lined up (Cherry)
  17. Down on the West Coast they got a sayin’

  18. No one even knows what life was like

    In the smoke they can hear me coming
    If you were me, and I was you
    I’d get out of my way (In My Feelings)
  26. Sometimes it feels like I’ve got a war in my mind

    To play someone’s game or live my own life (Get Free)
  27. Every Saturday night I get dressed up to ride for you, baby
    Cruising down the street on Hollywood and Vine for you, baby
    I drive fast, wind in my hair, I push you to the limits ’cause I just don’t care (Burning Desire)

    Don’t see me for what I’m not
    Only you can hear me tonight
    Keep your light on, babe (God Bless America – And All The Beautiful Women In It)
  29. I even think I found God
    In the flash bulbs of the pretty cameras,
    Pretty cameras, pretty cameras (Without You)
  30. My rose garden dreams, set on fire by fiends
    And all my black beaches (are ruined) (Cherry)

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
