Ride

' I was in the winter of my life and the men I met along the road were my only summer . At night I fell asleep with visions of myself , dancing and laughing and crying with them . Three years down the line being on an endless world tour and the memories with them were the only thing that sustained me and my only real happy times .
I was a singer . Not a very popular one . I once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet but upon an unfortunate series of events I saw those dream dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky that I wished on over and over again sparkling and broken . But I didn't really mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted and then losing it to know what true freedom is .
When the people I used to know found out what I had been doing , how I'd been living , they asked me why . But there's no use in talking to people who have a home . They have no idea what it's like to seek safety in other people . For home to be wherever you lie your head . I was always an unusual girl .  My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality , just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean . And if I said I didn't plan for it to turn out this way I'd be lying . Because I was born to be the other woman . I belonged to no one , who belonged to everyone . Who had nothing . Who wanted everything . With a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn't even talk about it and pushed me into a point of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me .
Every night I used to pray that I'd find my people . And finally , I did . On the open road . We had nothing to lose , nothing to gain , nothing we desired anymore . Except to make our life into a work of art . Live fast , die young , be wild and have fun .
 I believe in the country America used to be . I believe in the person I want to become . I believe in the freedom of the open road and my motto is the same as ever . I believe in the kindness of strangers and when I'm at war with myself , I ride . I just ride . Who are you ? Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies ? Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them ? I have . I am fucking crazy . But I am free ! '
                                  
                            LANA DEL REY - RIDE

  This is one of my favourite songs . If I had to choose between Ride by Lana and Demons by Imagine Dragons , I couldn't .
 I can somehow find myself in this song . When I listen to this song , I hear the loneliness in her voice . My obsession for freedom and independence and my desire to make my life as happy and fullfiled as possible take over my mind . I think that's what makes a song a good one . Its ability to get you in touch with your desires , your obsessions . A song that can make you stop denying the truth .

  1. I don't know if I have to feel sad for this song because her life has no direction and her dreams are shattered like million stars, or be happy for her because she feels free to do and be what she wants in the open road, fast life, die young, careless wild and free... honestly, this song is so deep you have to read between and beyond the lines...
