Lana Del Rey - West Coast lyrics

April 4, 2014

"West Coast" is a beautiful ballad and it's the first single from Lana del Rey's second album "Ultraviolence". The new single is moody baroque pop slow jam where Lana describes for us a few conceptions about the west coast perhaps not very well known. The tempo of the breezy-vintage production changes in verses and chorus (it softens even more in the chorus). "West Coast" was world premiered on radio via BBC Radio 1 (UK) in mid-April 2014.


Lana Del Rey "West Coast" lyrics

Down on the West Coast, they got a saying
If you're not drinking, then you're not playing
But you've got the music, you've got the music in you, don't you?
Down on the West Coast, I get this feeling like it all could happen
That's why I'm leaving you for the moment, you for the moment
Boy blue, yeah you
It's getting harder to show it
I'm feeling hot to the touch
You say you miss me
And I always say I miss you so much
But something keeps me really quiet
I’m alive, I’m a lush
Your love, your love, your love
I can see my baby swinging
His parliament is on fire when his hands are up
On the balcony and I'm singing
Ooh baby, ooh baby, I'm in love
I can see my sweet boy swinging
He's crazy and Cubano como yo my love
On the balcony and I'm singing
Move baby, move baby, I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love

Down on the west coast, they got their icons
Their silver starlets, their queens of Saigon
And you got the music, you got the music in you, don't you?
Down on the west coast, they love their movies
Their golden cars and rock-n-roll groupies
And you got the music, you got the music in you, don't you?
You push it hard I pull away
I’m feeling hotter than fire
I guess that no one ever really made me feel I’m a child
Didn’t say you gotta know, boy it's you I desire
Your love, your love, your love

I can see my baby swinging
His parliament is on fire when his hands are up
On the balcony and I'm singing
Move baby, move baby, I’m in love


I can see my sweet boy swinging
He's crazy and Cubano como yo my love
On the balcony and I'm singing
Move baby, move baby, I’m in love

I can see my baby swinging
His parliament is on fire when his hands are up
On the balcony and I'm singing
Ooh baby, ooh baby, I'm in love
He's crazy and Cubano como yo my love
On the balcony and I'm singing
Move baby, move baby, I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love
