"Angels Forever, Forever Angels" (or "AFFA", "Angels Forever" and "Forever Angels") is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey. It was completed in June 2013 and leaked on July 18, 2013. The song was written and produced by Del Rey and Rick Nowels. It is speculated to be an outtake from the Ultraviolence sessions.

Background

The song leaked alongside four other songs produced by Nowels – "JFK", "Starry Eyed ", "Hollywood" and "Black Beauty". In anticipation of Ultraviolence, Del Rey had singled out "Black Beauty" as an important track, yet by the time the album was released after the leak it had been relegated to a bonus track. With this in mind and "Angels Forever, Forever Angels" being recorded around the same time as "Black Beauty", only a month before its leak, many speculate that the song was intended to feature on the album but was cut due to its premature release and the reworking of the album by Dan Auerbach.

Lyrics

Is the sun in your eyes,
Easy rider?
Do the flame colored skies,
Light your fire?

We are heavy metal lions,
They will never understand,
The kind of people you or I am,
Bow your heads and take your hands.

They were angels forever,
Forever angels.
They were angels forever,
Forever angels.

Does the ocean inspire,
Easy rider?
Do the stars and the wind,
Take you higher?

You are California proud,
You are angels of the night,
Rock and roll guardians now,
The last keepers of the light.

They were angels forever,
Forever angels.
They were angels forever,
Forever angels.

Paradise is a love colored, flame sky,
Is it nice to feel free and wild?
Paradise is a game of do or die,
I just ride, ride, ride.

They were angels forever,
Forever angels.
They were angels forever,
Forever angels.

They were angels forever,
Forever angels.
They were angels forever,
Forever angels.
