New Video: Lana Del Rey – ‘Carmen’

Lana Del Rey carmen New Video: Lana Del Rey   Carmen

What a welcomed surprise!

Brooding chanteuse Lana Del Rey makes her return by releasing the music video to fourth single, ‘Carmen’.

Watch the music video after the jump and sound-off below.

‘Carmen’ is about a teenage prostitute with a morbid sense of self-esteem and a warped sense of reality, although some like to speculate that Del Rey is actually describing the life of LA celeb party girls like the infamous Britney Spears–circa 2007. The lyrics are incredibly self-aware, poignant, and chilling–partially due to their delivery, but mainly due to their content. Take a look…

Darling, darling, doesn’t have a problem
Lying to herself ’cause her liqueur’s top shelf
It’s alarming honestly how charming she can be
Fooling everyone, telling them she’s having fun

She says you don’t want to be like me
Don’t wanna see all the things I’ve seen
I’m dying, I’m dying
She says you don’t want to get this way
Famous and dumb at an early age
Lying, I’m lying

The boys, the girls, they all like carmen
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like god, her mind’s like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she’s still shining
Like lightning, ohh, like lightning

Carmen, carmen, staying up til morning
Only seventeen, but she walks the streets so mean
It’s alarming truly how disarming you can be
Eating soft ice cream
Coney Island Queen

She says you don’t want to be like me
Looking for fun, getting high for free
I’m dying, I’m dying
She says you don’t want to get this way
Street walk at night, and a star by day
It’s tiring, tiring

The boys, the girls, they all like carmen
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like god, her mind’s like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she’s still shining
Like lightning, ohh, like lightning

Baby’s all dressed up with nowhere to go
That’s the little story of the girl you know
Relying on the kindness of strangers
Tying cherry knots, smiling, doing party favors
Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on
Sing your song, song, now the camera’s on
And you’re alive again

Mon amour, je sais que tu m’aimes aussi
Tu as besoin de moi
Tu as besoin de moi dans ta vie
Tu ne peux plus vivre sans moi
Et je mourrais sans toi
Je tuerais pour toi

The boys, the girls, they all like carmen
She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes
She laughs like god, her mind’s like a diamond
Buy her tonight, she’s still shining
Like lightning, ohh, like lightning

Like lightning, ohh, like lightning

Darling, darling, doesn’t have a problem
Lying to herself ’cause her liqueur’s top shelf

    Is it me, or this song is SAD as hell! when you really listen to the lyrics, and make the connection with a few celeb’s….
    truggling to find peace, hapiness, and personal growth as such a young age like britney, whitney, michael and so many others! … we all go trough that path in our life, but they happen to do it in the public eye, with paparazzi all up in your face and in your business.
    we have the privilege to do it in all privacy, not having to face jugements fom pure strangers who don’t know the real you! what you’re really going trough as a person!
    They don’t.”
