Open Up Your Eyes

“Emotions are supposed to be raw, ugly, brutal…you don’t want someone to ‘sorta’ love you. You want that love to be a bursting flame, not a candle.”

I’m taking piano lessons again if anybody gives a flying hoot

Lana Del Rey - West Coast

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 call my only love
On the balcony and I’m singing
Move baby, move baby, I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love
