Love Song
Lana Del Rey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

In the car, in the car, in the backseat, I'm your baby
We go fast, we go so fast, we don't move
I believe in a place you take me
Make you real proud of your baby
In your car, I'm a star and I'm burnin' through you
In your car, I'm a star and I'm burnin' through you

Oh, be my once in a lifetime
Lying on your chest, in my party dress
I'm a fucking mess but I
Oh, thanks for the high life
Baby, it's the best, that's a test
And yes, now I'm here with you and I
Would like to think that you would stick around
You know that I'd just die to make you proud
The taste, the touch, the way we love
It all comes down to make the sound of our love song

Dream a dream, here's a scene
Touch me anywhere 'cause I'm your baby
Grab my waist, don't waste any part
I believe that you see me for who I am
So spill my clothes on the floor of your new car
Is it safe, is it safe to just be who we are?
Is it safe, is it safe to just be who we are?

Oh, be my once in a lifetime
Lying on your chest, in my party dress
I'm a fucking mess but I
Oh, thanks for the high life
Baby, it's the best, pass the test
And yes, now I'm here with you and I
Would like to think that you would stick around
You know that I'd just die to make you proud
The taste, the touch, the way we love
It all comes down to make the sound of our love song

The taste, the touch, the way we love
It all comes down to make the sound of our love song

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Lana Del Rey's "Love Song" are a sensual and dreamy exploration of love, passion, and self-discovery. In the first verse, the singer describes being in a car with her lover and feeling like a star, burning through him. She believes in a place that he will take her where he will be proud of her. The chorus speaks of wanting this lover to be a once-in-a-lifetime connection, someone who will stick around and make her proud. She is a "fucking mess," but she finds comfort lying on his chest in her party dress. The rest of the song explores the physical and emotional connection between the two of them, and how it all comes together to create the sound of their love song.


The imagery in the song is powerful and evocative. The car is a symbol of freedom, escape, and intimacy. The mention of spilling clothes on the floor of the car adds to the sensuality and eroticism of the song. The idea of being a star and burning through someone is raw and passionate. The use of the phrase "be my once in a lifetime" implies a sense of urgency and desperation, a desire to hold onto this connection as long as possible. The repeated refrain of "the taste, the touch, the way we love" reinforces the idea that their love is a sensory experience that comes alive in the sound of their love song.


Overall, "Love Song" is a beautiful and captivating ode to the power of love and connection. It captures the yearning and excitement of new love, the depth of emotion that comes with intimacy, and the sheer joy of losing oneself in someone else.
