SONG OF THE DAY // Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans”

I feel as though Lana Del Rey has been a bit of a product of some unfortunate incidences. With her debut album being overly hyped up, and a poor performance on SNL, the singer's offering "Born to Die" has received mingled reviews ranging from high praise to pure disappointment. I've always liked her work though. While some of her lyrics can be reaching for something at a point she's not at yet, there are moments of innocence and soulful realization that I find endearing and relatable. x [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRWox-i6aAk&ob=av2e]
Lyrics: Blue jeans, White shirt Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn It was like James Dean, for sure You so fresh to death & sick as ca-cancer You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop But you fit me better than my favorite sweater, and I know That love is mean, and love hurts But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby! I will love you till the end of time I would wait a million years Promise you'll remember that you're mine Baby can you see through the tears? Love you more Than those bitches before Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember I will love you till the end of time Big dreams, gangster Said you had to leave to start your life over I was like: "no please, stay here," We don't need no money we can make it all work But he headed out on Sunday, said he'd come home Monday I stayed up waitin', anticipatin' and pacin' but he was Chasing paper "Caught up in the game" that was the last I heard I will love you till the end of time I would wait a million years Promise you'll remember that you're mine Baby can you see through the tears? Love you more Than those bitches before Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember I will love you till the end of time You went out every night And baby that's alright I told you that no matter what you did I'd be by your side Cause Ima ride or die Whether you fail or fly Well shit, at least you tried. But when you walked out that door, a piece of me died I told you I wanted more-but that not what I had in mind I just want it like before We were dancin' all night Then they took you away- stole you out of my life You just need to remember.... Will love you till the end of time I would wait a million years Promise you'll remember that your mine Baby can you see through the tears? Love you more Than those bitches before Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember I will love you till the end of time
