Lana Del Rey - Ride Monologue lyrics

[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 compa** 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 Who wanted everything 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] [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 f**ing crazy But I am free
