Carmen
Lana Del Rey Lyrics


Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself 'cause her liquor's top shelf
It's alarming, honestly how charming she can be
Fooling everyone, telling Hum 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, at an early age
Lyingm I'm lying

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like God, her mind's like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she's still shining
Like lightning, oh, 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 walk at night, and a star by day"

It's tiring, tiring

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like God, her mind's like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she's still shining
Like lightning, oh, 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
Tyin' cherry knots, smilin', doin' party favors
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 moi dans ta vie
Tu ne peux vivre sans moi
Et je mourrais sans toi
Je tuerais pour toi

The boys, the girls, they all like Carmen
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like God, her mind's like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she's still shining
Like lightning, oh, like lightning

Like lightning, oh, like lightning

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

White Lie

For anyone who is confused, Carmen is cocaine.

She’s using this song basically killing two birds with one stone. The song is about Lana, but also cocaine. The boys and girls all like Carmen/Cocaine, but in the same sense, the boys and girls see her as a drug with a laugh like a god and a mind like a diamond. Both things go hand in hand with this song. Look up the spanish in translate that you hear from the lyrics. It all kinda clicks.

@The south will rise again! 2020 if I'm not mistaken, I think it's a little section that's actually in downtown Atlanta, in the city where they remodeled a lot of the houses because back in 2005 and 2006, me and my ex-boyfriend actually help to remodel some of those homes and they were fixing up the whole area. I can tell you what street that was on because it's been just so long ago but yes, anybody from Georgia knows or has heard of Cabbagetown LOL but I had totally forgotten about it until you said something LOL

The south will rise again! 2020

@Carrie Thompson I don’t know where cabbage town is located though it still exists today they changed the look of it up a lot now and days
