Lana Del Rey - Old Money

Blue hydrangea, cold cash divine
Cashmere, cologne and white sunshine
Red racing cars, sunset and vine
The kids were young and pretty
Where have you been? Where did you go?
Those summer nights seem long ago
And so is the girl you use to call
The queen of New York City

But if you send for me, you know I'll come
And if you call for me, you know I'll run
I'll run to you, I'll run to you
I'll run, run, run
I'll come to you, I'll come to you
I'll come, come, come

The power of youth is on my mind
Sunsets, small town, I'm out of time
Will you still love me when I shine
From words but not from beauty
My father's love was always strong
My mother's glamour lives on and on
Yet still inside, I felt alone
For reasons unknown to me


But if you send for me, you know I'll come
And if you call for me, you know I'll run
I'll run to you, I'll run to you
I'll run, run, run
I'll come to you, I'll come to you
I'll come, come, come

And if you call I'll run, run, run
If you change your mind, I'll come, come, come

Blue hydrangea, cold cash divine
Cashmere, cologne and hot sunshine
Red racing cars, sunset and vine
And we were young and pretty

"Old Money" is a song by Lana Del Rey written with Robbie Fitzsimmons and Dan Heath. It is featured as the tenth track on Del Rey's second major-label studio album, Ultraviolence. The lyrics explore the feelings of growing old, feeling lonely and not getting over somebody. On Ultraviolence audio commentary, Lana said: "Old Money is probably one of the tracks on the record that’s the most idyllic of them all. It’s more based in kind of, fantastical snapshots I have of being on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, like I was channeling something. It’s really my oldest track on the record because it’s, it’s a song that’s been in the works for about 5 years. It was called 'Methamphetamines' at first. And what’s funny is, I had to talk to my publishing company, because, I didn’t know that I was referencing a melody from the original score of Romeo and Juliet from I think, the sixties. It was so similar that, you know half of the publishing belongs to them as well now. But obviously I was channeling something really nostalgic. For me it’s also one of my favorite tracks."
