Ultraviolence Lyrics


He used to call me DN
That stood for deadly nightshade
'Cause I was filled with poison
But blessed with beauty and rage
Jim told me that
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
Jim brought me back
Reminded me of when we were kids

This is Ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
I can hear sirens, sirens
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
I can hear violins, violins
Give me all of that ultraviolence

He used to call me poison
Like I was poison ivy
I could have died right there
'Cause he was right beside me
Jim raised me up
He hurt me but it felt like true love
Jim taught me that
Loving him was never enough

This is ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
I can hear sirens, sirens
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
I can hear violins, violins
Give me all of that ultraviolence

We can go back to New York
Loving you was really hard
We can go back 'til it's dark
Where they don't know who we are
Heaven is on earth
I will do anything for you, babe
Blessed is this, this union
Crying tears of gold, like lemonade

I love you the first time
I love you the last time
Yo soy la princesa, comprende mis white lines
'Cause I'm your jazz singer
And you're my cult leader
I love you forever,
I love you forever

This is ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
Ultraviolence
I can hear sirens, sirens
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
I can hear violins, violins
Give me all of that ultraviolence

Ultraviolence
  • The title track of Lana Del Rey's third album, the term 'Ultraviolence' comes from Anthony Burgess' novel A Clockwork Orange. Clare Preston-Pollitt of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation told MTV News that the word "ultraviolence" may have been inspired by a passage in Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita novel.

    "It could be that Burgess had been influenced by a passage in Nabokov's Lolita where the narrator examines the word 'violence' and notes that the word exists next to the word 'violet' and 'violin' etc. in the dictionary," she said.
  • The song finds Del Rey exploring the close distance between love and pain.

    I can hear sirens, sirens
    He hit me and it felt like a kiss
    I can hear violins, violins
    Give me all of that Ultraviolence


    The lyrics references The Crystals' controversial tune "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)." Carole King and Gerry Goffin wrote the song after their babysitter Little Eva told them about her relationship with an abusive boyfriend who beat her almost on a regular basis.
  • Del Rey told Grazia that the song was inspired by her time spent with an underground group that was dominated by a charismatic leader. "I used to be a member of an underground sect which was reigned by a guru," she said. "He surrounded himself with young girls and he had this insane charisma I couldn't resist as well. So I was in this, I'll call it sect, because I was longing for love and security."

    "But then I found out that this guru wasn't a good but a bad person," she added. "He thought that he had to break people first before he could build them up again. At the end I left the sect."
  • The Ultraviolence title came before the recording process. "I think the album was called 'Ultraviolence' before I even had the songs," Del Rey told Radio.com . "That's because I just really love words. I'm kind of inspired by just a one-word title."
  • Ultraviolence sold 182,000 copies in its first week in the US, giving Lana Del Rey her first #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
  • The song title was inspired by Del Rey's connection to the seemingly conflicting emotions of aggression and softness. She explained to Complex magazine: "I like that luxe sound of the word 'ultra' and the mean sound of the word 'violence' together. I like that two worlds can live in one."

    "I like a physical love," Del Rey added. "I like a hands-on love. [Pauses.] How can I say this without getting into too much trouble? I like a tangible, passionate love. For me, if it isn't physical, I'm not interested."
  • The music video was directed by Del Rey's boyfriend, the Italian photographer Francesco Carrozzini (Rita Ora's "I Will Never Let You Down," A$AP Rocky's "Phoenix," Beyoncé's "Jealous") and shot in the singer's signature grainy and sepia-toned style.

    The clip shows Del Rey in a vintage white wedding dress singing the song's lyrics walking through the woods. As the visual proceeds, we realize that a mysterious man is filming the singer as she heads to the altar.
  • Lana Del Rey co-wrote this with Daniel Heath, a pal of her then-boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill. It was one of three songs that he helped her pen for the album. She told The Los Angeles Times: "Dan was my first boyfriend's best friend. Back then he was doing cues for reality television — the shows were terrible, but his work was beautiful. I said, 'You've got to work with me on real records. The songwriting is simple: intro, verse one, a chorus, which repeats three times. The bridge is separate from everything else.'"

    "That was all he needed to hear to start sending me amazing compositions. He did the title track for Ultraviolence for me. He adds a lot of cinema to my sound."
