Lana Del Rey - Ride

I've been out on that open road
You can be my full time, daddy
White and gold
Singing blues has been getting old
You can be my full time, baby
Hot or cold

Don't break me down
I've been traveling too long
I've been trying too hard
With one pretty song

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been trying hard not to get into trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
So, I just ride

Dying young and I'm playing hard
That's the way my father made his life an art
Drink all day and we talk 'til dark
That's the way the road doves do it, ride 'til dark.

Don't leave me now
Don't say good bye
Don't turn around
Leave me high and dry

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been trying hard not to get in trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride

I'm tired of feeling like I'm fucking crazy
I'm tired of driving 'til I see stars in my eyes
I look up to hear myself saying,
"Baby, too much I strive, I just ride."

I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
I am alone in the night
Been trying hard not to get in trouble, but I
I've got a war in my mind
I just ride

"Ride" is a song by American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey, taken from the re-release of her second album studio album, Born to Die - The Paradise Edition (2012) and her third EP, Paradise. The song served as the reissue's first single on September 25, 2012 through Interscope Records, Polydor Records, and Universal Music. The cover for the single depicts Del Rey on a tire swing, wearing cowboy boots and a denim jacket. In general, the song was well received by critics. Co-written by "Video Games" author Justin Park, "Ride" is a pop ballad that thematically involves parental problems, alcohol consumption, and loneliness. The ancillary music video premiered at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, California on October 10 and saw an official release on October 12. It was directed by Anthony Mandler, director of "National Anthem". Contemporary critics praised the song. Vocally, the song drew comparisons with Adele and Brandon Flowers of The Killers.
