Lana Del Rey has released the moody video for the song “Mariners Apartment Complex,” in which she walks along the freeway and plays with butterflies.
It never ceases to amaze and perplex music industry pundits what products move the needle. Portrayed in retro black and white, Del Rey, with her wispy voice and flip hairdo channels the 1960s in the new video with teasingly feminine appeal. The song captures the essence of romantic angst with references to those here and those who have passed on. The track is produced by Jack Antonoff.
The real Mariners apartment complex is located in Marina Del Rey. And Del Rey may have a friend who lives there, but what’s not in the lyrics is that Mariners apartment complex is slated to be torn down, according to real estate sources.
Del Rey is releasing her first album since the 2017 work Lust For Life.
Check out Mariners Apartment Complex:
Lyrics Mariner’s Apartment Complex
You took my sadness out of context
At the Mariners Apartment Complex
I ain’t no candle in the wind
I’m the board, the lightning, the thunder
Kind of girl who’s gonna make you wonder
Who you are and who you’ve been
And who I’ve been is with you on these beaches
Your Venice bitch, your die-hard, your weakness
Maybe I could save you from your sins
So, kiss the sky and whisper to Jesus
My, my, my, you found this, you need this
Take a deep breath, baby, let me in
You lose your way, just take my hand
You’re lost at sea, then I’ll command your boat to me again
Don’t look too far, right where you are, that’s where I am
I’m your man
I’m your man
They mistook my kindness for weakness
I fucked up, I know that, but Jesus
Can’t a girl just do the best she can?
