Lana Del Rey - Looking For America Lyrics




Took a trip to San Francisco
All our friends said we would jive
Didn't work, so I left for Fresno
It was quite a scenic drive
Pulled over to watch the children in the park
We used to only worry for them after dark

I'm still looking for my own version of America
One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly
No bombs in the sky, only fireworks when you and I collide
It's just a dream I had in mind
It's just a dream I had in mind
It's just a dream I had in mind

I flew back to New York City
Missed that Hudson River line
Took a train up to Lake Placid
That's another place and time, where
I used to go to drive-ins and listen to the blues
So many things that I think twice about before I do, no

I'm still looking for my own version of America
One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly
No bombs in the sky, only fireworks when you and I collide
It's just a dream I had in mind
It's just a dream I had in mind
It's just a dream I had in mind

It's just a dream I had in mind

  17. Alex Cosentini

    This song is so beautiful and it brought me to tears. This is also my vision of America and to see that Lana share that vision is so wonderful. This is what real patriotism is!! Thank you Lana!!

  18. Stefan E. Asplund

    Nice song. In times like this we need comfort.

  19. the lamb sauce

    i don’t know how but this song reminds me of summer. i love christmas but winter sucks honestly. this song reminds me of a more carefree time, where my only worries were what sandwich i was going to get at publix before going to the beach. it’s sounds silly but it’s the simple things you know

  20. della rivera

    Just a Girl from Fresno California. Born and raised 💕

  21. Dan Bandy

    I love Lana. America is currently divided and the 2 political parties need to get their act together. For fucks sake. We're Americans. Kindness first. Let's bring back family values and be united! A dream I have in mind. Beautiful song! Just want all the people who aren't from the U.S to know that America is a beautiful country where most people want to live a good life and want the best for their neighbors. Us Americans are very privileged to live here with all the freedoms in the world. There are 330 million citizens and there are bound to be some crazies. Don't let it dissuade you from visiting or moving here! Peace to all! ❤✌🏽

  29. Ali Elma

    we can all agree here that this song hits the hardest out ofall the other songs it just smacks you down like it creates that lust for life vibe and adresses the utmost important issues found in america and across the world... we love you lana

  30. Liana Soares

    Ladies & gentlemen, please rise for The National Anthem. 👩🏻👨🏻

  31. KCMWSOT

    This song should’ve landed in NFR. It’s so beautiful and has enough depth delivered in such a haunting melody. SO good.

  32. Anthony Cavalier

    Lana Del Rey has such a knack for mixing the personal, the political, and the profound.

  33. Josh Fire

    Where’s my Fresno People at🔥😭

  40. Cory A.W.

    @LanaDelRey I'm not sure why I can't get this song out of my head... maybe because it's such a beautiful dream.

  41. Cudi Aks

    She has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard

  42. friendship

    i think this song is about a lot of things. like when you've built your minecraft house put a lot of flowers down and someone burns it down and you watch everyone kill each other and take your friends and you just want to be safe while the world around you seems like its ending

  43. baimimi love_

    迪卡過來的……

  44. hibigoudi

    I’m not American, but I’m so sad and I crying for America, thanks Lana 🖤

  45. vampire queen

    This song makes me daydreamy.

  46. 03 AI

    Lana is true american🇺🇸❤️

  47. Natalisya Simbolon

    first of all, I'm so sorry,
    im not american, and im bad at english enough...
    This song suddenly appeared on my playlist. I thought this song was a lullaby, cause it sounds like that. i know the track called 'looking for america' yet without knowing the meaning.. i mean i just can only know the instruments of it, but i dont really understand what she says/sings after i read these comment sections, and read the lyrics, i finally knew what this song is about... for me it's a duality

  48. Cater Time

    Question: How can this have only 5.5 million views and have any dislikes?! This song is underappreciated! This is art that should be seen by everyone in the world!

  49. Tricia Cherie

    This song is legit magic

  50. Jackson Are

    Magnificent ...
    real Nostalgia

    I just did a cover of this song. please guys if you check it out. I would appreciate your comments.<3

  51. 黃韵茹

    This is so incredible😢😢😢💕

  52. Siddarth Kariholoo

    So happy when i hear this...

  53. Bandaid Girl

    "No bombs in the sky"

  54. alec kelly

    Can someone explain why this wasn’t on NORMAN FUCKING ROCKWELL please?

    dmwegnerowicz7554

    The song was written after the album was mastered. It was a response to the two recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, and she donated all the proceeds of the song to charities against gun violence.

    alec kelly

    dmwegnerowicz7554 that’s beautiful

  55. Viren Maran

    I'm sure Lana's gonna be our president one day

  56. Katie

    Anyone know the significance of the knocking sound at 2:14 ?

    Sergiu

    changed sounds of gunshots

    Katie

    Klem oh lol I’m dumb thanks

    Santiago Jatib

    Crappy production

    dmwegnerowicz7554

  76. Oliver

    This is legitimately one of her best songs. A tragedy this wasn't on NFR, because this is a modern classic

  77. SIRKISSHY

    god lana you really really changed my life. i used to listen to your songs as a teenager and i'm barely an adult now but it's an honour to come back to your gorgeous, heavenly sound 💕

  78. Peyton Cowley

    Every politician should listen to th is song

  79. skye

    i forgot how much i love her

  80. Allison Carter

    After having a school shooting threat in a neighboring school today, this song really hit me (especially because today happens to be 9/11) it's strange that we don't notice how beautiful life is until we're on death's doorstep. I wish there was an end to all the crap happening in the world, people forget that every life counts. It shouldn't matter what age, race, nationality, religion, etc... we are. We're all human and we all get stuck in the mud, we should be building each other up instead of tearing each other down.

  81. C T

    Natural, calm, elegant, and very nostalgic. That's why I love her.

  82. liu liu

    11 September listening anyone?

  83. stephanie pankewich

  84. Brittanya Mendoza

    She’s amazing. her voice is one that only comes around once in a long while.

  85. Sľ Z

    Her voice gives me chills

  86. ripley4

    Oh My God....It is so sweet....and warm....it is waking up to your lover's eyes.....early in the morning.....and feel the love....

  87. Mikey Tavarez

  88. Dishari Collections

    I'm not American but all of her patriotic songs always make me feel so emotional
