"God Save Our Young Blood" is a song by American singer and songwriter Børns and Lana Del Rey from Børns' second studio album, Blue Madonna. The song was officially released as a single worldwide on January 2, 2018.

Background and writing Edit

On October 9, 2017 Børns shared a video of Del Rey in the studio with him, leading fans to speculate that she would be featured on his upcoming album. The album, Blue Madonna, was announced on December 7, 2017 and weeks after songs from the album were registered including "God Save Our Young Blood" with Del Rey credited as a performer.[1] After an announcement, the song was officially released as a single, with Del Rey credited as a co-lead artist, after premiering through Beats 1 Radio on January 2, 2018.

In an interview with Zane Lowe, Børns stated that he had Del Rey in mind while writing "God Save Our Young Blood" before she was even featured, and felt that he was subliminally mimicking her vocals on the track. Once the two had met he showed her the song and Del Rey stated "I feel like I’m already on this song" which he replied that was what he was aiming for.[2]

LyricsEdit

Damn, look at the sunrise
Glowing finish line, made it in record time
Hey, baby, we made it
My head's faded, headlights dilated

Spinnin', spinnin' and I can't sit still
Spinnin', spinnin' and we can't sit still

Baptized in blue skies
Roll the window down, reach out, feel around for new life
Damn, you and those green eyes
We can never stop movin', we see nothin' but the green lights

Spinnin', spinnin' and we can't sit still
Spinnin', spinnin' and we can't sit still

God save, God save our young blood
God save, God save our young love
Hot pavement, hot pavement, hot wheels in the sun
God save our young blood
God save, God save our young blood
God save, God save our young love
Warm waves, warm waves, on the coast where we love
God save our young blood

Climbed up the tree of life, kicked of out paradise
Living good, doing evil is the toss of the dice
Couple of wild eyes, cup full of high life
She's an angel and a devil of her own device

She's got me spinnin' (spinnin')
Spinnin' and I can't sit still (you know I can't sit still)
Oh, spinnin', spinnin' and we can't sit still

God save, God save our young blood
God save, God save our young love
Hot pavement, hot pavement, hot wheels in the sun
God save our young blood
God save, God save our young blood
God save, God save our young love
Warm waves, warm waves, on the coast where we love
God save our young blood

God save the ocean, God save the breeze
Save the words from my lips, save the birds, save the bees
Baby save me one last sip while you strip on the beach
I'll save you in the waves if you swim too deep
God save, God save our young blood
God save our young love

God save, God save our young blood
God save, God save our young love
Hot pavement, hot pavement, hot wheels in the sun
God save our young blood
God save, God save our young blood
God save, God save our young love
Warm waves, warm waves, on the coast where we love
God save our young blood

On the coast where we love
God save our young blood
On the coast where we love
God save our young blood
