Ride
Lana Del Rey Lyrics


I've been out on that open road
You can be my full time, daddy white and gold
Singing blues has been getting old
You can be my full time, baby
Hot or cold

Don't break me down
I've been travelin' too long
I've been trying too hard
With one pretty song

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
So, I just ride
Just ride, I just ride, I just ride

Dying young and I'm playing hard
That's the way my father made his life an art
Drink all day and we talk 'til dark
That's the way the road doves do it, ride 'til dark

Don't leave me now
Don't say good bye
Don't turn around
Leave me high and dry

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been tryin' hard not to get in trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride
Just ride, I just ride, I just ride

I'm tired of feeling like I'm fucking crazy
I'm tired of driving 'till I see stars in my eyes
I look up to hear myself saying, baby
Too much I strive, I just ride

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been tryin' hard not to get in trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride
Just ride, I just ride, I just ride

I was in the winter of my life
And the men that I met along the road were my only summer.
At night, I fell asleep with visions of myself
Dancing and laughing and crying with them.

Three years down the line of being on an endless world tour
And my memories of them were the only things that
Substained me and my only real happy times.

I was a singer, not a very popular one,
Who one had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet -
But upon an unfortunate series of events
Saw those dreams dashed
And divided like a millions stars in the night sky
That I wished on over and over again - sparkling and broken.

But I didn't really mind because I knew
That it takes getting everything
You ever wanted and then losing it
To know what true freedom is.

When the people I used to know
Found out what I had been doing
How I had been living - they asked me why.
But there's no use in talking to people who have a home,
They have no idea what it's like to seek safety I
In other people,
For home to be wherever you lie your head.

I was always an unusual girl,
My mother told me I had a chameleon soul.
No morall compass pointing due north, no fixed personality.
Just an inner indecisiveness
That was as wide and as wavering as the ocean.
And if I said that I didn't plan
For it to turn out this was, I'd be lying -
Because I was born to be the other woman.

I belong to no one - who belonged to everyone,
Who had nothing, who wanted everything
With a fire for every experience
And an obsession for freedom
That terrified me to the point I couldn't even talk about -
And pushed me to a nomatic point
Of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me."

I've been out on that open road
You can be my full time, daddy
White and gold
Singing blues has been getting old
You can be my full time, baby
Hot or cold

Don't break me down
I've been traveling too long
I've been trying too hard
With one pretty song


I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
So, I just ride, I just ride
I just ride, I just ride
Dying young and I'm playing hard
That's the way my father made his life an art
Drink all day and we talk 'til dark
That's the way the road doves do it, ride 'til dark

Don't leave me now
Don't say goodbye
Don't turn around
Leave me high and dry

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride, I just ride
I just ride, I just ride

I'm tired of feeling like I'm f*cking crazy
I'm tired of driving 'til I see stars in my eyes
I look up to hear myself saying
"Baby, too much I strive, I just ride"

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride, I just ride
I just ride, I just ride

"Every night I used to pray that I'd find my people -
And finally I did - on the open road.
We had nothing to lose, nothing to gain
Nothing we desired anymore -
Except to make our lives into a work of art.

Live fast. Die young.
Be wild, and have fun
I believe in the country America used to be.
I believe in the person I want to become.
I believe in the freedom of the open road.

And my motto is the same as ever -
I believe in the kindness of strangers.
And when I'm at war with myself - I ride. I just ride.

Who are you?
Are you in touch with all your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you're free to experience them?
I have! I am fucking crazy, but I am free!

Tradução do monologue:
1° parte:
"Eu estava no inverno da minha vida
E os homens que eu conheci ao longo da estrada foram meu único verão
À noite, eu dormia com visões de mim mesma
Dançando e rindo e chorando com eles
Três anos sem rumo em uma turnê mundial sem fim
E me lembrar deles era a única coisa que
Me sustentava e meus únicos momentos reais de felicidade
Eu era uma cantora, não muito popular
Que sonhava um dia ser uma linda poetisa
Mas diante de uma série de acontecimentos lamentáveis
Vi esses sonhos arruinados
E se partirem em milhões de estrelas no céu da noite
Para as quais eu fazia novos pedidos - sonhos brilhantes e fragmentados
Mas eu não me preocupava porque eu sabia
Que era preciso conseguir tudo
O que sempre quis e depois perder
Para saber o que é a verdadeira liberdade
Quando as pessoas que eu costumava conhecer
Descobriram o que eu estava fazendo
Como eu estava vivendo - eles me perguntaram ''por que"
Mas não é producente falar com as pessoas que têm um lar
Eles não têm ideia de como é procurar segurança
Em outras pessoas
De ter um lar onde você deita sua cabeça
Eu sempre fui uma garota incomum
Minha mãe dizia que eu tinha uma alma de camaleão
Sem uma bússola de moral apontando pro norte, sem personalidade fixa
Apenas uma indecisão interior
Tão ampla e ondulante como o oceano
E se eu dissesse que não planejei isso
Pra ficar desse jeito, eu estaria mentindo
Porque eu nasci pra ser a outra mulher.
Eu não pertencia a ninguém, pertencia a todo mundo
Não tinha nada e queria tudo
Com um desejo ardente por cada experiência
E uma obsessão pela liberdade
Que me aterrorizava ao ponto de eu não poder nem falar sobre isso
E me empurrava para um ponto nômade
De loucura que me deslumbrava e me deixava tonta''
2° parte:
"Toda noite eu costumava rezar para que eu encontrar o meu povo
E, finalmente, eu encontrei - na estrada aberta
Não tínhamos nada a perder, nada a ganhar
Nada do que desejássemos mais
Exceto tornar nossa vida em uma obra de arte
Viva rápido. Morra jovem
Seja selvagem, e se divirta
Eu acredito no país que América costumava ser
Eu acredito na pessoa que eu quero me tornar
Eu acredito na liberdade da estrada aberta
E o meu lema é o mesmo de sempre
Eu acredito na bondade de estranhos
E quando eu estou em guerra comigo mesmo - eu dirijo. Eu só dirijo
Quem é você?
Você está em contato com todas as suas fantasias mais sombrias?
Você criou uma vida para si mesmo onde você está livre para experimentá-las?
Eu criei! Eu sou louca pra caralho, mas sou livre! "

[Pre-Song]
I was in the winter of my life
And the men I met along the road were my only summer
At night I fell asleep with visions of myself dancing and laughing and crying with them
Three years down the line of being on an endless world tour and my memories of them were the only things that sustained me
And my only real happy times

I was a singer
Not a very popular one
I once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet
But upon an unfortunate series of events saw those dreams dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky
That I wished on over and over again, sparkling and broken
But I really didn’t mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted and then losing it to know what true freedom is

When the people I used to know found out what I had been doing how I had been living, they asked me why, but there’s no use in talking to people who have a home
They have no idea what its like to seek safety in other people
For home to be wherever you lie your head

I was always an unusual girl
My mother told me that I had a chameleon soul
No moral compass pointing me due north
No fixed personality
Just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and wavering as the ocean
And if I said I didn’t plan for it to turn out this way I’d be lying

Because I was born to be the other woman
Who belonged to no one
Who belonged to everyone
Who had nothing

With a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn’t even talk about it
And pushed me to a nomadic point of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me

[Song]
I've been out on that open road
You can be my full time daddy,
White and gold
Singing blues has been getting old
You can be my full time baby,
Hot or cold

Don't break me down
I've been travelin' too long
I've been trying too hard
With one pretty song

I hear the birds on the summer breeze,
I drive fast, I am alone in midnight
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble,
But I, I've got a war in my mind
So, I just ride, just ride,
I just ride, just ride

Dying young and I'm playing hard
That's the way my father made his life an art
Drink all day and we talk 'til dark
That's the way the road dogs do it – ride 'til dark.

Don't leave me now
Don't say good bye
Don't turn around
Leave me high and dry

I hear the birds on the summer breeze,
I drive fast, I am alone in midnight
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble,
But I, I've got a war in my mind
I just ride, just ride,
I just ride, just ride

I'm tired of feeling like I'm fucking crazy
I'm tired of driving 'til I see stars in my eyes
It's all I've got to keep myself sane, baby
So I just ride, I just ride

I hear the birds on the summer breeze,
I drive fast, I am alone in midnight
Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble,
But I, I've got a war in my mind
I just ride, just ride,
I just ride, I just ride.

[Post-Song]
Every night I used to pray that I’d find my people
And finally I did
On the open road
We had nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore
Except to make our lives into a work of art

Live fast
Die young
Be wild
And have fun

I believe in the country America used to be
I believe in the person I want to become
I believe in the freedom of the open road
And my motto is the same as ever
"I believe in the kindness of strangers"

And when I'm at war with myself
I ride
I just ride

Who are you?
Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have
I am fucking crazy
But I am free

It's definitive a masterpiece of music art... best song ever? The main theme is one of the strongest themes ever, this is true... don't know... depends on the mood... GOD must decide which song is the best, not a human being🙂

Just the cousin of the guy without a mustache

No but close
