"Angels Forever, Forever Angels" (or "AFFA", "Angels Forever" and "Forever Angels") is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey produced by Rick Nowels. It was completed in June 2013 and leaked on July 18, 2013. The song is speculated to be an outtake from the Ultraviolence sessions.

Background

The song leaked alongside four other songs produced by Nowels – "JFK", "Starry Eyed", "Hollywood" and "Black Beauty". In anticipation of Ultraviolence, Del Rey had singled out "Black Beauty" as an important track, yet by the time the album was released after the leak it had been relegated to a bonus track. With this in mind and "Angels Forever, Forever Angels" being recorded around the same time as "Black Beauty", only a month before its leak, many speculate that the song was intended to feature on the album but was cut due to its premature release and the reworking of the album by Dan Auerbach.

Lyrics

Is the sun in your eyes, easy rider?
Do the flame colored skies light your fire?

We are heavy metal lions
They will never understand
The kind of people you or I am
Bow your heads and take your hands

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

Does the ocean inspire, easy rider?
Do the stars and the wind take you higher?

You are California proud
You are angels of the night
Rock and roll guardians now
The last keepers of the light

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

Paradise is a love-colored flame sky
Is it nice to feel free and wild?
Paradise is a game of do or die
I just ride, ride

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels
