Norman Fucking Rockwell! is Lana at her deepest, and it arrives at a time when the history of America as we know it is being rewritten. Norman Rockwell himself illustrated idyllic images of American life and its history, spending 50 years with the Americana propagandists at the weekly Saturday Evening Post

Del Rey previously released videos for the Norman Fucking Rockwell tracks “Fuck It I Love You,” “The Greatest” and her cover of Sublime’s “Doin’ Time.” She wrapped up her U.S. tour in November, where she covered iconic songs like Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” and Joni Mitchell’s “For Free” while bringing out surprise guests like Joan Baez, Sean Lennon, Chris Isaak, Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, Lucy Dacus, Julia Jacklin and more.

 

 

The last time fans saw a short film from Grammy-nominated songwriter Lana Del Rey was in 2013 with “Tropico,” a nearly half-hour-long saga featuring songs from her 2012 album “Paradise.” Today, we got another one, a 15-minute ode to her critically-acclaimed “Norman F—ing Rockwell.”

Norman F***ing Rockwell! – Lana Del Rey

 

[Verse 1]
Goddamn, man-child
You fucked me so good that I almost said “I love you”
You’re fun and you’re wild
But you don’t know the half of the shit that you put me through
Your poetry’s bad and you blame the news
But I can’t change that, and I can’t change your mood, ah

[Chorus]
‘Cause you’re just a man
It’s just what you do
Your head in your hands
As you color me blue
Yeah, you’re just a man
All through and through
Your head in your hands
As you color me blue
Blue, blue, blue

[Verse 2]
Goddamn, man-child
You act like a kid even though you stand six foot two
Self-loathing poet, resident Laurel Canyon know-it-all
You talk to the walls when the party gets bored of you
But I don’t get bored, I just see it through
Why wait for the best when I could have you? You?

[Chorus]
‘Cause you’re just a man
It’s just what you do
Your head in your hands
As you color me blue
Yeah, you’re just a man
All through and through
Your head in your hands
As you color me blue
Blue, blue
You make me blue

[Outro]
Blue, blue
Blue, blue, blue
Blue, blue, blue
