Lana Del Ray “Love (Instrumental)”

Here’s to you my beloved
Here’s to all I ever wanted for I find such ever wanting when comparing it to you
How could my life not comprise the truth your smile confides each dawn anew
When one dip in the low tide of your eyes provides extensive morning view

Here’s to you my beloved
To reaching for the skies
For every sunrise you define
Supplies incentive to
Besides a life bereft of you
Feels compromised and destitute
And this old heart of mine
Would sooner die outright than see divide consented to

Here’s to you my beloved
To all you are and each cruel scar you cauterize so kindly
To every fall you call to rise
For ne’er hath I seen thoughts advised so timely
I walk this line
Divorced of blight
And ne’er despair the tread of night behind me
To wear thy kiss upon my lips
The linger of lithe finger tips
Is every wish I ever wished for knighted

Here’s to you my beloved
To the grace with which you vividly amaze me
To the lace upon your wrists
That whispers sweetly of infinity awaited
The fated distance travelled
To unravel in thy wake
Enamel of my bones no oath to break
My soul betrothed
Tis thine alone to take
My home of homes
For e’er reposing sake

Here’s to you my beloved
The nightingale song serenades
Showering the palace gates
Powers through the barricades and over my heart’s balustrades
Nestled somewhere in-between
My shoulder blades and vertebrae
Scattered rays cascading
As the angels then avert their gazes
All the while
Thine grace amazes
Famed to further turn the pages
Burning plains with flame so bright
It reignites eternal ages
As below me
So above it
From the lowly depths to summit
Beautiful the death we covet
To our final breath beloved
Here’s to you
Sincerely true
In crystalline
Seen clearly through the wishful eyes of steely blue
That lead me to the deepest truth
That you for I aligns to me for you
From blackest night to white hot dawn anew
