Lana Del Rey Lyrics


I guess you could call it textbook
I was lookin' for the father I wanted back
And I thought I found it in Brentwood
It seemed only appropriate you'd easily have my back

And then there was the issue of her
I didn't even like myself, or love the life I had
And there you were with shining stars
Standing blue with open arms
You touched the detriment most of the friends I knew already had

You've got a Thunderbird, my daddy had one too
Let's rewrite history, I'll do this dance with you
You know I'm not that girl, you know I'll never be
Maybe just the way we're different could set me free
And there we were, screamin', "Black Lives Matter" in the crowd
By the Old Man River, and I saw you saw who I am
God, I wish I was with my father
He could see us in all our splendor
All the things I couldn't want for him
I screamed for them, oh
I screamed for them, ah

Could we do this dance again?
Do you think if I go blonde, we could get our old love back?
I guess this is really the end
I never felt jealous before this year, but I'm jealous now

People say we're too much alike
But maybe, finally, that'll make it right
At the end of all these sleepless nights
Other men I met felt right
Would smile at you and stick a knife
In your back, finally, I met you so I'm not wondering why

You've got a Thunderbird, my daddy had one too
Let's rewrite history, I'll do this dance with you
You know I'm not that girl, you know I'll never be
Maybe just the way we're different could set me free
There we were, screamin', "Black Lives Matter" in the crowd
By the Old Man River, and I saw you saw who I am
God, I wish I was with my father
He could see us in all our splendor
All the things I couldn't want for him
I screamed for them, oh
I screamed for them, ah-ah

Old Man River keeps rollin'
With or without him
Old Man River keeps rollin'
Without him, oh, my old man
Old Man River keeps rollin', oh

[Verse 1]
I guess you could call it textbook
I was lookin' for the father I wanted back
And I thought I found it in Brentwood
It seemed only appropriate you'd easily have my back

[Pre-Chorus]
And then there was the issue of her
I didn't even like myself, or love the life I had
And there you were with shining stars
Standin' blue with open arms
You touched the detriment most of the friends I knew already had

[Chorus]
You've got a Thunderbird, my daddy had one, too
Let's rewrite history, I'll do this dance with you
You know I'm not that girl, you know I'll never be
Maybe just the way we're different could set me free
And there we were, screamin' "Black Lives Matter" in the crowd
By the Old Man River, and I saw you saw who I am
God, I wish I was with my father
He could see us in all our splendor
All the things I couldn't want for him
I screamed for them, oh-oh-oh
I screamed for them, ah-ah

[Verse 2]
Could we do this dance again?
Do you think if I go blonde, we could get our old love back?
I guess this is really the end
I never felt jealous before this year, but I'm jealous now

[Pre-Chorus]
People say we're too much alike
But maybe, finally, that'll make it right
In the end of all these sleepless nights
Other men I met felt right
Would smile at you and stick a knife
In your back
Finally, I met you so I'm not wonderin' why

[Chorus]
You've got a Thunderbird, my daddy had one, too
Let's rewrite history, I'll do this dance with you
You know I'm not that girl, you know I'll never be
Maybe just the way we're different could set me free
There we were, screamin' "Black Lives Matter" in the crowd
By the Old Man River, and I saw you saw who I am
God, I wish I was with my father
He could see us in all our splendor
All the things I couldn't want for him
I screamed for them, oh-oh-oh
I screamed for them, ah-ah

[Outro]
Old Man River keeps rollin'
With or without him
Old Man River keeps rollin'
Without him, oh, my old man
Old Man River keeps rollin', oh

Livro Didático

Acho que você poderia chamar isso de livro didático
Eu estava procurando o pai que eu queria de volta
E pensei ter encontrado em Brentwood
Parecia muito apropriado que você facilmente me protegesse
E então, houve a questão dela
Eu nem gostava de mim mesma ou amava a vida que eu tinha
E lá estava você, com estrelas brilhantes
De pé, frágil, com os braços abertos
Você tocou no prejuízo
Que a maioria dos amigos que eu conhecia já tinham tocado
Você tem um carro Thunderbird, meu pai tinha um também
Vamos reescrever a história, vou fazer essa dança com você
Você sabe que eu não sou aquela garota, você sabe que nunca serei
Talvez apenas o jeito como nós somos diferentes possa me libertar
E lá estávamos nós, gritando Vidas Negras Importam no meio da multidão
Perto do rio Mississippi, e eu vi que você viu quem eu sou
Deus, eu gostaria de estar com o meu pai
Ele poderia nos ver em todo o nosso esplendor
Todas as coisas que eu não poderia desejar para ele
Eu gritei por eles, oh, oh, oh
E gritei por eles, ah
Poderíamos fazer essa dança de novo?
Você acha que se eu ficar loira
Nós poderíamos ter o nosso antigo amor de volta?
Acho que este é realmente o fim
Nunca senti ciúmes antes deste ano
Mas estou com ciúmes agora
As pessoas dizem que estamos muito vivos
Mas talvez, finalmente, isso fará tudo ficar bem
No final de todas essas noites sem dormir
Outros homens que conheci pareciam certos
Sorririam para você e enfiariam uma faca
Nas suas costas
Finalmente, eu te conheci, então não estou me perguntando por quê
Você tem um carro Thunderbird, meu pai tinha um também
Vamos reescrever a história, vou fazer essa dança com você
Você sabe que eu não sou aquela garota, você sabe que nunca serei
Talvez apenas o jeito como nós somos diferentes possa me libertar
E lá estávamos nós, gritando Vidas Negras Importam no meio da multidão
Perto do rio Mississippi, e eu vi que você viu quem eu sou
Deus, eu gostaria de estar com o meu pai
Ele poderia nos ver em todo o nosso esplendor
Todas as coisas que eu não poderia desejar para ele
Eu gritei por eles, oh, oh, oh
E gritei por eles, ah
Old Man River continua tocando
Com ou sem ele
Old Man River continua tocando
Sem ele, ah, meu velho
Old Man River continua tocando, oh
