"Live My Life" is a song by the Australian duo Tamarama from their debut, eponymously titled album, which was released June 1, 2010. The song was written by bandmates Nicolas Potts, Jay Lyon and David Kahne, who also produced the track.

Involvement with Lana Del Rey

On May 3, 2010 David Kahne contacted Lana Del Rey saying:

"Mowtown needs you to sign something concerning your bits on that Tamarama song."

Del Rey had provided a sample of her vocals for the track, which can be heard during the chorus wherein she sings "hey" as a response to the male vocalist.

Lyrics

Baby dancing in the moonlight,
Moving way ahead of time.
Dancing like nobody's watching,
All the boys will wait in line.

But she knows that she can't keep on moving,
This weight is holding her down.
Yeah she feels fought down like a,
Rock to the ground, no one know why.

She said "hey", (hey), you know,
I live my life full day by day.
I said "hey", (hey), you know,
'Cause it don't matter,
What the world may say.

(It doesn't matter),
(It doesn't matter),
(What the world may say).

Devil's handsome in the daylight,
Got girls all over town.
Smiling like nobody's watching,
But the jaws will hit the ground.

But he won't stand for secondhand romance,
He knows just when to break free.
Yes it feels tucked down like an,
Ordinary clown, no one know why.

He said "hey", (hey), you know,
I live my life full day by day.
You said "hey", (hey), you know,
'Cause it don't matter,
What the world may say.

('Cause it don't matter),
(What the world may say).
('Cause it don't matter),
(What the world may say).

Lift up the third,
I'm gon' carry the shame,
She locked the key up,
But you want the same,
We're living our lives,
Yeah, we're making it change.

He said "hey", (hey), you know,
I live my life full day by day.
You said "hey", (hey), you know,
'Cause it don't matter,
What this world may say.

(It doesn't matter),
(What the world may say).
