Lana Del Rey - Beautiful People Beautiful Problems (feat. Stevie Nicks)

[Verse 1: Lana Del Rey]
Blue is the color of the planet from the view above
Long live our reign, long live our love
Green is the planet from the eyes of a turtle dove
'Til it runs red, runs red with blood

[Pre-Chorus: Lana Del Rey]
We get so tired and we complain
'Bout how it's hard to live
It's more than just a video game

[Chorus: Lana Del Rey]
But we're just beautiful people
With beautiful problems, yeah
Beautiful problems, God knows we've got them
But we gotta try (Lie-la-lie)
Every day and night (Lie-la-lie)

[Verse 2: Stevie Nicks]
Blue is the collar of the shirt of the man I love
He's hard at work, hard to the touch
But warm is the body of the girl from the land he loves
My heart is soft, my past is rough

[Pre-Chorus: Lana Del Rey, Both]
But when I love him, get a feeling
Something close to like a sugar rush
It runs through me, but is it wasted love?
(It's not wasted love)

"Beautiful People Beautiful Problems" explores the struggles of life despite having beauty, wealth and fame. The opening verses discuss the colors of the world: Blue symbolizes the planet and its long-lasting beauty that must be preserved, whereas green is seen as the vibrant color of peace in the eyes of a gentle organism like a dove. At the same time, the mention of running red with blood hints at the destruction caused by people. Lana then sings about how people complain about life being difficult, not realizing that reality is far more complex than what can be seen in a video game. The chorus then affirms that people may have beautiful qualities but still have to deal with problems that they must try to overcome every day and night. Stevie continues with the theme in her verse, contrasting the man's rough exterior with the girl's soft heart and difficult past. The pre-chorus again talks about the rush of love but wonders if it is worthwhile. The final chorus repeats the idea that even beautiful people like them face challenges, reminding that everyone must keep trying despite the difficulties to move forward. The bridge emphasizes the importance of trying to overcome obstacles, and the outro hails the song's inherent beauty. The song's message is a reminder that everyone faces problems, regardless of how fortunate or privileged they may seem. The lyrics encourage people to persevere and keep trying to overcome obstacles, knowing that beauty doesn't guarantee a lack of struggles. The song features American singer Stevie Nicks.
