Lyrics for Summertime Sadness by Lana Del Rey:

Chorus
Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

Verse 1
I got my red dress on tonight
Dancin' in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big, beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feelin' alive

Pre-Chorus
Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothin' scares me anymore
One, two, three, four

Chorus
Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

Post-Chorus
I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Verse 2
I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruisin' down the coast goin' 'bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight

Pre-Chorus
Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothin' scares me anymore
One, two, three, four

Chorus
Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you're the best

Post-Chorus
I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Bridge
Think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the mornin' sky
Later's better than never
Even if you're gone, I'm gonna drive, drive, drive

Post-Chorus
I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Chorus
Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best

Post-Chorus
I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Song Facts

“Summertime Sadness” explores the atmosphere of a bittersweet summertime where Lana danced, cruised and felt electrified with a loved one. This song became a sleeper success from a dance remix by Cedric Gervais. The remix entered the Top 50 in the UK, the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it topped the US Dance/Electronic songs chart.

The accompanying music video created great speculation over its underlying message. It depicts a tragedy where one woman (played by Lana Del Rey) jumps and the other (Jamie King), heartbroken, follows. Due to this, some claim that the song was written for a personal friend of Lana’s that committed suicide, or that it was written for a boyfriend that died years ago. However, there is absolutely no evidence of this, and many believe these speculations to be false in their entirety.
