Lana Del Rey – Born To Die lyrics

Feet don't fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Oh my heart it breaks every step that I take
But I'm hoping at the gates
They'll tell me that your mine


Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or design
I feel so alone on a friday night
Can you make it feel like home
If I tell you you're mine

It's like I told you honey

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough I don't know why

Keep making me laugh
Lets go get high
The road is long we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime


Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Because you and I
We were born to die

Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Trying to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find

All the answers honey

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough I don't know why

Keep making me laugh
Lets go get high
The road is long we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Because you and I
We were born to die

We were born to die
We were born to die

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Don't make me sad
Don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough
And the road gets tough I don't know why

Keep making me laugh
Lets go get high
The road is long we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Because you and I
We were born to die

We were born to die...

    Well, when I first heard the song I didn't understand it at all. Now that I've looked up the lyrics, seen the video and read most of the first 50 comments, I feel that this song starts off as if Lana thinks she's in the best relationship and the guy she's with is the love of her life. In the second verse when she says she was lost but now found, I think she's finally realizing that she has made a mistake in her relationship and is having second thoughts. In the ending of the song she keeps repeating 'we were born to die' so she is trying to say to the guy that she wants to breakup, but he is saying 'no' and keeps urging her on until finally they breakup (and it's the end of the video where the dude is holding the bloody body of Lana) .

    After a female friend of mine posted this song to me, I was wondering about its true meaning. I thought it my have been a love message. So I read the.
    Posts made by others. Found a few, that were what I thought to be along the lines of my thoughts. Did more research, and posted what I found below. The singers actual words said on the meaning. Hope this clears up a lot of misguided thoughts on the songs true meaning. Mb.

    When she says 'we we're born to die', I take it to mean the relationship was doomed from the start. We can be powerfully attracted to the wrong people for all the wrong reasons. Doesn't stop us from going there but there is always a feeling of doomed inevitability in these situations which this song wallows in. I love the register of her voice, this song could not be sung by everyone.

    Babe, you're bummed out on life, sounds like you're only here to party with no direction known. Downer, martyrs-ville. Obvious hopelessness, no future, just doom, here to get some, get high and fade away? Don't be that way. We are born to die, but what most can't see is we are reborn in death and live on as our prime, unflawed spiritual selves with our loved ones eternally. This mortal life is just a quick moment in time, live it full and happily-spiritual life goes on afterward-you'll see! Cheer up be uplifting and make positive vibes, dudette, don't be so dark and down. You are a beautiful person inside and out and your poetry and music is heavy duty. You have class, don't sleaze out on us, be your real self like you are, beautiful and humble and demure. Continue to be you and don't become a spectacle or carnival act raise people up girl. Love, from a twice your age. New, very impressed fan from the nw ps blue jeans is a killer, makes me feel where you are-someone else is out there and will be lucky to win you- sorry for my two cents. Keep on girl, you're great!

    I think she remembers the past times she had with her boyfriend, she says the she was felling confused when she was younger and thought that she really loved him, but that was just an ilusion, she only wanted it because it was dangerous, she now realisez. She was also afraid to let go because she thought that she could never find someone better. Though she ended that, perhaps, relationship, she remembers him now and then (when he is beside her in bed).
