4. Lana Del Rey, ‘Video Games’ (Born To Die, 2012)
On the order of service, Simon had written this:
‘Despite sounding somewhat subdued, this is actually another unconditional love song. Just happy acceptance of each other and all our faults; something we seemed to have managed for over twenty years. If we’d ever got around to getting married this was going to be the First Dance at the reception, so perhaps it’s appropriate that it’s our last “dance” today.
“They say that the world was built for two,
Only worth living if someone is loving you.
Baby, now you do…”
and I always will.’
Into the hush and the glow of the purple flowers; this song. The doors opened to the overcast sky. The ushers guided us out, row by row and we left our Tara behind. Be free, my lovely girl.
