Lana Del Rey - Sad Girl

Every single night when I go down to the west coast
The people seem dead like I'm dancing with their ghost
Nothing in this world keeps me more on my feet
Than your sweet lovin' oooh your lovin'

What happened to days when you were mine
The way you looked, so God damned fine
Guess I'll be alone this summertime

'Cause I'm a sad girl dancing on my own
Long way, far away from home
Some day I will find you in the sunset
I'm a sad girl, searching for a dream
Just know that we're on each other's team
Some day I will find you, you bet
But now you've left me,
Singing this sweet song
Hold me, never held me for too long
Love me, your love was porous like a rock
Maybe you just forgot
That I loved you

"Sad Girl" is about a woman who is in a painful relationship with a man who she loves, but is unfaithful to her. She is the other woman (mistress) who has the fire of passion and the comfort of money, but still finds herself heartbroken by his actions. She says, "His Bonnie on the side, Bonnie on the side, makes me a sad, sad girl", as a reference to his girlfriend as well as a reminder that she is not getting what she deserves from her relationship, despite her devotion. She concludes the song proclaiming her strength and sadness in being the "bad girl" in a situation due to which she suffers. It is the sixth track of Lana Del Rey's third studio album, Ultraviolence.
