Lana Del Rey — Carmen lyrics

Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem
Lying to herself cause her liquor'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
Audiotune lies, she's still shining
Like lightning, white lightning

Carmen, carmen, staying up till 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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/lana-del-rey-carmen-lyrics.html ]
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 walking 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
Audiotune lies, she's still shining
Like lightning, white 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
Trying cherry knots similing, doing party favours
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

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
Audiotune lies, she's still shining
Like lightning, white lightning

Like lightning, white lightning...

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