Through Explanation you See the Lyrics in a New Light
You are what you areI don't matter to anyoneBut Hollywood legends will never grow oldAnd all of what's hiddenWell, it will never grow cold
But I lost myself when I lost youBut I still got jazz when I've got those bluesAnd I lost myself when I lost youAnd I still get trashed, darling, when I hear your tunes
But you are who you areI won't change you for anythingFor when you are crazyI'll let you be badI'll never dare change thee to what you are not
But I lost myself when I lost youBut I still got jazz when I've got those bluesI lost myself and I lost you tooAnd I still get trashed, baby, when I hear your tunes
I put the radio on, hold you tight in my mindIsn't strange that you're not here with meBut I'm putting all the lights on in the televisionTrying to transmit, can you hear me?Ground control to Major TomCan you hear me all night long?Ground control to Major Tom
Well I lost myself when I lost youBut I still got jazz when I've got the bluesI lost myself and I lost you tooAnd I still get trashed, honey, when I hear your tunes
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.
