Tell Me I'm Your National Anthem

I have to admit, I really tried to not like Lana Del Rey. I just so resented her, and how she was a cookie cutter pop str turned indie/weird/whatever she is. But my friend Kayla made me watch her latest video for "national anthem"... and I became obsessed. It was really the poem at the end of the video that did it for me. Just reading the poem here is making me tear up. It is just so beautiful. The whole video is absolutely amazing. You all need to watch it.

"And I remember when I met him, it was so clear that he was the only one for me. We both knew it, right away. And as the years went on, things got more difficult- we were faced with more challenges.

I begged him to stay. Try to remember what we had at the beginning.

He was charismatic, magnetic, electric and everybody knew it. When he walked in every woman’s head turned, everyone stood up to talk to him. He was like this hybrid, this mix of a man who couldn’t contain himself. I always got the sense that he became torn between being a good person and missing out on all of the opportunities that life could offer a man as magnificent as him.

And in that way I understood him and I loved him. I loved him, I loved him, I loved him.

And I still love him.

I love him."
