Lana Del Rey “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but i have it”

At some point over the last album cycle, Lana Del Rey started naming songs as if she wants to be the female Morrissey – case in point, her new single “hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but i have it.” It is not often you see a song title that is a diagramable sentence.

Despite the ridiculous title, the song is a great. It is a slow-burning piano ballad with Del Rey at her most emotive. It also has some great lyrics, my favorite being “I’ve been tearing around in my fucking nightgown/twenty-four seven Sylvia Plath.” It really makes you look forward to the album Del Rey is supposedly sitting on.
