"Paradise" (not to be confused with the alternate title for "Dark Paradise") is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey.

Background

The track was recorded in the same sessions as "Serial Killer" and the second demo of "This is What Makes Us Girls" in March, 2011 and leaked on September 25, 2012. Despite the title, the song was not intended for Paradise as it was recorded before Del Rey secured her major label record deal that lead to Born to Die.

The title "Paradise" is registered twice, firstly as an alternate title of "Dark Paradise"[1] and secondly as a separate song crediting Del Rey, Ibsen and Justin Parker as writers.[2]

Cross-references

  • The song is referenced many times in many other songs, perhaps most notably "Dark Paradise".
  • Vanilla ice cream is also mentioned in both "Dynamite" and "Cola".

Lyrics

(Ooh, ooh-ooh, what?
Ooh, ooh-ooh, that's dope
Ooh, ooh-ooh, what?
Ooh, ooh-ooh)

Love you like I never loved anyone
Keep me burnin' hot like the red, red sun
Want you like I never wanted anyone
You give it to me fast, like free and fun

Every time with you, it feels like I'm in summer
I don't know why
Maybe 'cause you're so cool and keep it down on the real
Like sugar, sugar fly

Oh, you're sweet, like sugar cane
Make me feel alive again

I'm goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
(Rock you like a real bad baby)
La, love, lick you like vanilla ice
(Back you up and make you crazy)

Shot (shot), hot (hot), gimme what you got
You can can write my hot supersonic pop
Goin' down, down, take you down to paradise

Want you like I've never wanted anyone
Got a face like God and a bod' like drawn
Kiss you like I never kissed anyone
'Cause you keep it really rough like, "Oh my God."

Every time with you I can tell it's forever
I don't know how
And even if it's not, you know I couldn't stop
You make my heart go pow

Coming down like pouring rain
Make me feel alive again

I'm goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
(Rock you like a real bad baby)
La, love, lick you like vanilla ice
(Back you up and make you crazy)

S-s-s-s-shot (shot), hot (hot), gimme what you got
You can can write my hot supersonic pop
Goin' down, down, take you down to paradise

How do you like that, baby?

(Down, down, take you down to paradise)
(Down, down, take you down to paradise)
(Down, down, take you down to paradise)

(Ooh, ooh-ooh, dope
Ooh, ooh-ooh, that's sick
Ooh, ooh-ooh, dope
Ooh, ooh-ooh, that's sick)

(Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh)

Shot, hot, gimme what you got
You can can write my hot supersonic pop

I'm goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
(Rock you like a real bad baby)
La, love, lick you like vanilla ice
(Back you up and make you crazy)

S-s-s-s-shot (shot), hot (hot), gimme what you got
You can can write my hot supersonic pop
Goin' down, down, take you down to paradise
