"Swan Song" is a song by Lana Del Rey that is featured on Del Rey's third major-label full-length album Honeymoon.

Background

In May 2015, a few fans met Del Rey and she told them that a song off her record would be titled "Swan Song".

Controversy

After images from the booklet that accompanied Honeymoon’s physical release leaked, some fans of Del Rey took to social media to express their unease at the line "and I will never sing again". Many worried that the line, along with the title of the song and it's placement on the track listing as the penultimate track before "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", would be a literal representation of the final song of her career and that Honeymoon would be Del Rey's last album. However, these concerns proved to be unnecessary, as in September 22, 2015, Del Rey told radio presenter Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 that she had begun the writing process for the follow up to Honeymoon "a few months ago".[1]

Lyrics

Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me.
Why work so hard when you could just be free?
You got your money now, you got your legacy,
Let's leave the world for the ones who change everything.

Nothing could stop,
The two of us,
Let's just get lost,
That's what we want.

And I will never sing again,
And you won't work another day.
I will never sing again,
With just one wave it goes away.

It will be our swan song,
It will be our swan song.
Be our swan song,
It will be our swan song.

Dive in, dive deep, and dive blue my sweet,
Brushing up from the water where the ice meets,
And you've been gone so long you missed everything,
The world can change in a day if you go away but;

Nothing could stop,
The two of us,
If that's what we want,
We could just get lost.

And I will never sing again,
And you won't work another day.
I will never sing again,
With just one wave it goes away.

It will be our swan song,
It will be our swan song.
Be our swan song,
It will be our swan song.

Do you like,
Do you like where you've been,
Where you're going to.
Say goodnight,
Say goodnight to the life and the world you knew,
I'm gonna follow you.

And I will never sing again,
And you won't work another day.
And I will never sing again,
You won't work another day.

It will be our swan song,
It will be our swan song.
Be our swan song,
It will be our swan song.

Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me,
Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me,
Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me,
Why you work so hard when you could just be free?
