pawn shop blues lyrics – lana del rey

well, i didn’t know it would come to this
but that’s what happens when you’re on your own
and you’re alright letting nice things go

well, i p*wned the earrings that you gave me
gold and made of flowers dangling
and i almost cried as i sold them all
i don’t mind living on bread and oranges, no no
but i gotta get to and from where i come
and it’s gonna take money to go
oh no, oh oh, oh oh…

in the name of higher consciousness
i let the best man i knew go
’cause it’s nice to love and be loved
but it’s better to know all you can know
i said it’s nice to love and be loved
but i’d rather know what god knows
oh no, oh no, oh no…

i can do this once more
no man can keep me together
been broken since i was born

well, i didn’t know it would come to this
but that’s what happens when you’re on your own
and you’re alright letting nice things go
