Lyrics

[Theophilus London]:
Uh, feeling's gone, feeling's gone

[Lana Del Rey]:
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh

[Theophilus London]:
Uh

[Lana Del Rey]:
Uh oh, uh oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Theophilus London]:
This love is dead

[Lana Del Rey]:
You always buy me roses when I’m mad
Do you think I’ll forgive you just like that?
Did you forget who you were seein', yeah?
I’m not lettin' you off easy, I’m still sad

[Theophilus London]:
Uh

[Lana Del Rey]
I’m kissin' you hard, you got my lipstick on your face
I stole your girlfriend’s keys, kicked her out of your place
Because I want you more than I did before, before

[Theophilus London]:
Uh

[Lana Del Rey]:
I’m missin' you hard, give you my softcore baby face
And then we start to fight, tumble down the staircase
And when we hit that floor, you want me even more, more

[Theophilus London]:
Uh, the feeling's gone

[Lana Del Rey]:
And then you buy me roses and it’s fine
I forgive you almost all the time
As long as you remember that you’re mine
I’ll let you off easy, it’s alright

And then you buy me roses and it’s fine
I forgive you almost all the time
As long as you remember that you’re mine
I’ll let you off easy, it’s alright

You always buy me roses like a creep
Askin' for forgiveness, unsexy
What happened to the man you used to be?
If you still want my love, then work for me

[Theophilus London]:
Uh

[Lana Del Rey]:
You’re kissin' me hard, you got my lipstick on your face
You show me what you got and put a girl in her place
If you want me more than you did before

[Theophilus London]:
Uh, feeling's gone, feeling's gone

[Lana Del Rey]:
And then you buy me roses and it’s fine
I forgive you almost all the time
As long as you remember that you’re mine
I’ll let you off easy, it’s alright

And then you buy me roses and it’s fine
I forgive you almost all the time
As long as you remember that you’re mine
I’ll let you off easy, it’s alright

[Theophilus London]:
We got conversations, ain’t nothing said
This girl is crazy, I done lost my head
Her life is awesome, the doctor said
But my shit feel awful, this love is dead

[Lana Del Rey]:
And then you buy me roses and it’s fine
I forgive you almost all the time
As long as you remember that you’re mine
I’ll let you off easy, it’s alright

And then you buy me roses and it’s fine
I forgive you almost all the time
As long as you remember that you’re mine
I’ll let you off easy, it’s alright

[Theophilus London]:
See, I could see the pain
In her eyes, in her eyes
This love is dead
This love is dead
