Lana Del Rey - Living Legend

[Intro]
Hmm, oh-oh

[Verse 1]
Blackbirds will sing in the same key
As you play in the shoes that I bought you
And sweet baby Jane don't know a thing
About my songs, but she knows I'm a monsoon

[Chorus]
And, baby, you, all the things you do
And the ways you move, send me straight to Heaven
And, baby, you, what you never knew
What I never said is you're my living legend

[Verse 2]
Hipsters will sing just like a dream
In Sin-é or the back Brooklyn bayou
But you never cared about my name
And, darling, I never meant to defy you

[Chorus]
But baby, you, all them things you do
And those ways you moved, send me straight to Heaven
And baby you, I never said to you
You really are my living legend
[Bridge]
I got guns in the summertime and horses, too
Guns in the summertime and horses, too
I never meant to be bad or unwell
I was just living on the edge
Right between Heaven and Hell
And I'm tired of it

[Chorus]
Oh, all the things you do
And the ways you move, send me straight to Heaven
And, baby, you, what I never said to you
'Cause you really are my living legend

[Instrumental Break]

[Outro]
My living legend
My living legend
My living legend
My living legend

"Living Legend" is the thirteenth track from Lana Del Rey's eighth studio album, Blue Banisters. It was originally written and recorded around 2013 and is an ode to one of Lana's long-time friend and mentor, Jane Powers. Del Rey referenced the track again while thanking Powers at the end of the Ultraviolence booklet.
