Lana Del Rey - Born to Die

Feet don't fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Oh my heart it breaks every step that I take
But I'm hoping at the gates
They'll tell me that your mine


Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or design
I feel so alone on a friday night
Can you make it feel like home
If I tell you you're mine

It's like I told you honey

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough I don't know why

Keep making me laugh
Lets go get high
The road is long we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Because you and I
We were born to die

Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Trying to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find

All the answers honey

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough I don't know why

Keep making me laugh
Lets go get high
The road is long we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Because you and I
We were born to die

We were born to die
We were born to die

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough I don't know why

Keep making me laugh
Lets go get high
The road is long we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Because you and I
We were born to die

We were born to die...

“Born to Die” is the second single from Lana Del Rey's major-label debut studio album of the same name. The song is described by Lana Del Rey as a “homage to true love and a tribute to living life on the wild side.” To quote Chelsea Hodson from New York Times, “In [Lana’s] melancholy world, to love is to live, so to love the wrong person is to be “born to die.” The music video was released on December 14th, 2011, receiving generally positive reviews. She spoke with MTV about its background: "For “Born To Die,” I wrote a treatment for it called “The Lonely Queen,” so that I would be in a setting that represented Heaven, sort of in like a remote castle in Romania. Walking through the halls flanked by tigers. And then she’d be flashing back to happier times in the arms of her love. And then Yoann Lemoine adapted that treatment and made it more doable. But I love that video. I really do. I can’t believe it turned out so beautifully. I spent a lot of time thinking about where I wanted it to go." According to Songfacts, Lana confirmed the song was about her boyfriend in an interview for Q Magazine: "When I found someone that made me feel really happy, that was so different to the way I’d felt before in my life." The man in the cover art and the music video is model Bradley Soileau, who also appeared in Lana’s “West Coast” music video. Musically, it's a pop and trip-hop ballad that speaks of a doomed relationship. Critics noted that it features apocalyptic lyrics and strings similar to John Barry compositions.
