Del Rey originally recorded a demo of the song containing differed lyrics and production in the early stages of recording ''[[Born to Die (album)|Born to Die]]''. This version was recorded on September 24, 2011 in New York, and was produced by [[Björn Yttling]].<ref>http://thecuttingroom.com/bjorn-yttling-and-lana-del-ray-at-the-cutting-room-studios/</ref> Del Rey and Yttling wrote the verses and recorded the drums in a two hour session. Lyrically and sonically, the second demo is similar to the radio mix. Del Rey performed an alternate version of the song live with different lyrics on [[2011/September#September 14|September 14, 2011]], before the release of ''Born to Die''. Not much is know about this version, but a short clip of the performance exists online.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBlZEVEZKfs</ref>

The song follows a similar sound to other songs on ''Born to Die'', with orchestral production and a mid-tempo ballad structure. It contains male background vocals of a spoken line from a live performance of "Mary Jane" by Rick James, also heard in "[[Lolita (song)|Lolita]]", "[[Blue Jeans (song)|Blue Jeans]]", "[[Without You (song)|Without You]]" and "[[National Anthem (song)|National Anthem]]". It has a tempo of 120 beats-per-minute, making it one of the fastest songs on the album. The key of the song is C♯ minor.
