Lana Del Rey - This Is What Makes Us Girls lyrics

Remember how we used to party up all night
Sneaking out looking for a taste of real life
Drinking in the small town firelight
(Pabst Blue Ribbon on ice)

Sweet 16 and we had arrived
Walking down the streets as they whistle, "Hi, hi!"
Stealing police cars with the senior guys
Teachers said we'd never make it out alive

There she was, my new best friend
High heels in her hands, swaying in the wind
Oh she starts to cry, mascara running down her little Bambi eyes
"Lana, how I hate those guys."

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put our love first
Something that we'd die for, it's our curse
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together 'cause we put love first
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
It's all gonna happen

And that's where the beginning of the end begun
Everybody knew that we had too much fun
We were skipping school and drinking on the job
(With the boss)

Sweet 16 and we had arrived
Baby's table-dancing at the local dive
Cheering our names in the pink spotlight
Drinking cherry schnapps in the velvet night

Yo, we used to go break in
Into hotel, glimmer and we'd swim
Running from the cops in our black bikini tops
Screaming, "Get us while we're hot, get us while we're hot!"
(Come on, take a shot)

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put our love first
Something that we'd die for it's a curse
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together 'cause we put our love first
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
It's all gonna happen

The prettiest in-crowd that you had ever seen
Ribbons in our hair and our eyes gleamed mean
A freshmen generation of degenerate beauty queens
And you know something?

They were the only friends I ever had
We got into trouble and when stuff got bad
I got sent away I was waving on the train platform
Crying 'cause I know I'm never coming back

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put our love first
Something that we'd die for, it's a curse
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together 'cause we put our love first
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
It's all gonna happen
