Young and Beautiful - Lana Del Rey



The Experience:
Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful? Are youth and beauty everything in a love relationship? I am more than my youth and beauty. And I need to be loved because of who I am. Real love wouldn't leave me with an aching soul...

Music Video:

The doubt, anguish, and the slow and agonizing melody makes perfect sense with “The Great Gatsby” as a background. 


My Take:
We are all looking for an everlasting love. For something that will still be there even when we are not young and beautiful anymore. You can fall in love with someone's looks. But falling in love with inner beauty is real and lasts forever.

Ask Yourself:
Do I let others know and loved for who I really am? What keeps me loving?



LYRICS:


I’ve seen the world
Done it all
Had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant
In belle air now
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

[Hook]

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

I’ve seen the world, lit it up

As my stage now
Changeling angels in a new age now
Hot summer days, rock n roll
The way you play for me at your show
And all the ways I got to know
Your pretty face and electric soul

[Hook]

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

Dear lord, when I get to heaven

Please let me bring my man
When he comes tell me that you’ll let him
Father tell me if you can
All that grace, all that body
All that face, makes me wanna party
He’s my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds

[Hook]

And will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’m not young and beautiful?
