Cover version[edit | edit source]

On April 20, 2012, Lana Del Rey covered the track in BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. The writer and guitarist of Kasabian, Serge Pizzorno, later told NME he thought the cover was "fucking beautiful" and called Del Rey covering it "a really nice gesture". The cover was prompted by the band performing their own rendition of Del Rey's track "Video Games" also during a Live Lounge session. The cover of the song is registered on ASCAP, suggesting that a studio version exists, but currently remains unleaked.[1]

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Doomed from the start
We met with a goodbye kiss
I broke my wrist

It all kicked off, I had no choice
You said that you didn't mind
'Cause love's hard to find

Maybe the days we had are gone
Living in silence for too long
Open your eyes and what do you see?
No more laughs, no more photographs

Turning slowly, looking back, see
No words can save this
You're broken, and I'm pissed
Run along like I'm supposed to
Be the man, I ought to
Rock and Roll sent us insane
I hope someday that
We will meet again

Running wild
Giving it everyone
Now that's all done

Maybe the days we had are gone
Living in silence for too long
Open your eyes and what do you see?
No more laughs, no more photographs

Turning slowly, looking back, see
No words can save this
You're broken, and I'm pissed
Run along like I'm supposed to
Be the man, I ought to
Rock and Roll sent us insane
I hope someday that
We will meet again

You go your way, and I'll go my way
No words can save us
This lifestyle made us
Run along like I'm supposed to
Be the man I ought to
Rock and Roll sent us insane
I hope someday that
We will meet again
