“Lust For Life” – Lana Del Rey ft The Weeknd [YouTube Audio Single]

LYRICS

Climb up the H of the Hollywood sign, yeah
In these stolen moments, the world is mine
There’s nobody here, just us together
Keepin’ me hot like July forever

‘Cause we’re the masters of our own fate
We’re the captains of our own souls
There’s no way for us to come away
‘Cause boy we’re gold, boy we’re gold
And I was like

Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all of your clothes
They say only the good die young
That just ain’t right
‘Cause we’re having too much fun
Too much fun tonight, yeah

In a lust for life, in a lust for life
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive

Then, we dance on the H of the Hollywood sign, yeah
‘Til we run out of breath, gotta dance ’til we die
My boyfriend’s back and he’s cooler than ever
There’s no more night, blue skies forever

‘Cause we’re the masters of our own fate
We’re the captains of our own souls
So there’s no need for us to hesitate
We’re all alone, let’s take control
And I was like

Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all of your clothes
They say only the good die young
That just ain’t right
‘Cause we’re having too much fun
Too much fun tonight, yeah

In a lust for life, in a lust for life
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive

My boyfriend’s back, and he’s cooler than ever
There’s no more night, blue skies forever
I told you twice in our love letter
There’s no stopping now, green lights forever
And I was like

Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all your clothes
Take off, take off
Take off all of your clothes

In a lust for life, in a lust for life
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
In a lust for life, in a lust for life
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive
Keeps us alive, keeps us alive

Lana Del Rey has shared the title track from her upcoming album. Listen to “Lust For Life” above, which features a vocal contribution from The Weeknd.

Lana shared some insight about the song in an interview with Dazed magazine:

So basically, “Lust for Life” was the first song I wrote for the record, but it was kind of a Rubik’s Cube. I felt like it was a big song but… it wasn’t right. I don’t usually go back and re-edit things that much, because the songs end up sort of being what they are, but this one song I kept going back to. I really liked the title. I liked the verse.

Del Rey appeared on two songs on The Weeknd’s most recent album, Starboy, and he returns the favor here. The two singers have created some interesting and rebellious pop music over the past few years, although this song feels pretty tame by comparison.

At this time, Lust For Life does not have a release date. In February, Lana shared a music video for the LP’s first single, “Love.”
