  • Lyrics
  • This lounge Jazz ballad finds Del Rey singing about how "being a mistress on the side, might not appeal to fools like you." Asked by The Guardian where the inspiration came from, she replied: "A good question. I mean … I had different relationships with men, with people, where they were sort of wrong relationships, but still beautiful to me."

    The Guardian interviewer then asked: "By wrong does she mean being the other woman?"

    Del Rey replied coyly: "I mean, I guess so."
