"Religion" is a song written by Lana Del Rey and Rick Nowels that is featured as the ninth track on Del Rey's third major-label full-length album Honeymoon, which was officially released worldwide on September 18, 2015.

Composition and critical reception Edit

"Religion" is a romantic love ballad performed at approximately 136 beats per minute with a total run time of 5 minutes and 23 seconds. Lyrically, Del Rey toys with comparing a loved one to her religion. In an album review of Honeymoon, Amy Davidson of Digital Sky noted that "Religion" felt like one of Del Rey's more optimistic love songs, pointing out the line 'everything it bright now', but it was "still tinged with the singer's favourite kind of noirish self-destruction".[1]

LyricsEdit

Everything is fine, now
Let sleeping dogs lay
All our minds made up, now
All our beds are made

No one's out of time, no
Chips fall where they may
Leave it all behind
Let the ocean wash away

It never was about
The money or the drugs
For you there's only love
For you there's only love
It never was about
The party or the clubs
For you there's only love

'Cause you're my religion
You're how I'm living
When all my friends say
I should take some space

Well, I can't envision
That for a minute
When I'm down on my knees
You're how I pray

Hallelujah
I need your love
Hallelujah
I need your love

Everything is bright now
No more cloudy days
Even when the storms come
In the eye, we'll stay

No need to survive now
All we do is play
All I hear is music
Like "Lay Lady Lay"

It never was about
The money or the drugs
With you there's only love
With you there's only love
It never was about
The party or the clubs
For you there's only love

'Cause you're my religion
You're how I'm living
When all my friends say
I should take some space

Well, I can't envision
That for a minute
When I'm down on my knees
You're how I pray

Hallelujah
I need your love
Hallelujah
I need your love

You're my religion
You're how I'm living
When all my friends say
I should take some space

Well, I can't envision
That for a minute
When I'm down on my knees
You're how I pray

Hallelujah
I need your love
Hallelujah
I need your love
