Terence Loves You - Lana Del Rey

You are what you are
I don't matter to anyone
But Hollywood legends will never grow old
And all of what's hidden
Well, it will never grow cold

 

But I lost myself when I lost you
But I still got jazz when I've got those blues
And I lost myself when I lost you
And I still get trashed, darling, when I hear your tunes

 

But you are who you are
I won't change you for anything
For when you are crazy
I'll let you be bad
I'll never dare change thee to what you are not

 

But I lost myself when I lost you
But I still got jazz when I've got those blues
I lost myself and I lost you too
And I still get trashed, baby, when I hear your tunes

 

I put the radio on, hold you tight in my mind
Isn't strange that you're not here with me
But I'm putting all the lights on in the television
Trying to transmit, can you hear me?
Ground control to Major Tom
Can you hear me all night long?
Ground control to Major Tom

 

Well I lost myself when I lost you
But I still got jazz when I've got the blues
I lost myself and I lost you too
And I still get trashed, honey, when I hear your tunes

 

Mmmm-mmm-mmm-mmm
Mmmm-mmm-mmm-mmm
Mmmm
Mmmm-mmm-mmm-mmm
Mmmm

Interpretation of Terence Loves You

The song contains references to David Bowie's song "Space Oddity". Just as Major Tom in the universe is no longer able to contact the ground control, it appears in Lana Del Rey's song as if the person whom she sings about is lost too. She cannot let go of a former lover. Memories of the time together come back repeatedly. She hopes that things will be different this time, but she does not do anything to change his mind. She remains cool and self-confident.
A second way to interpret the lyrics assumes that it is a song about David Bowie's brother Terry Burns. He introduced Davis Bowie to Jazz music and committed suicide with only 48 years. The line "I still got jazz when I've got those blues" can be interpreted as a hint how David Bowie felt after losing his brother. The Song title "Terrance Loves You" refers to a sentence that David Bowie allegedly said to Terry's wife after this event.
