Young and Beautiful (officially registered as Will You Still Love Me) is a song by Lana Del Rey featured on the soundtrack of the movie The Great Gatsby. It was released as a single on April 23, 2013.

Background

The song was written and recorded some time in 2012 by Lana Del Rey and Rick Nowels. It was intended for use on Paradise, the re-release of Born to Die. On June 19, 2012, Lana Del Rey sung an acapella of the chorus on radio when asked what music would be on her new album. The song failed to make the final tracklist of Paradise. The song is registered on ASCAP as Will You Still Love Me and Young and Beautiful and on ISWC as Will You Still Love Me. An alternate orchestral version by Dan Heath was released alongside Rick Nowels version of the single.

On November 24, 2012, Del Rey teased at being featured on a soundtrack during an interview on the Dutch show Langs De Leeuw, explaining "one thing that I have been doing [...] is helping composers write scores for movies." She went on to say "there's a movie coming out this summer that's set in the 1920s, and it's been fun for me to write love songs for the woman." On February 7, 2013, Del Rey tweeted "GATSBY" [sic], confirming fans' suspicions. On April 4, 2013, the first studio snippet of the song was released in a trailer for the film, with media outlets confirming the song to be released as a single on April 23, 2013. The song was available to buy in Australia on April 21, and was unofficially released onto the internet shortly afterwards.

Lyrics

Mm, mm.

I’ve seen the world done it all,
Had my cake, now.
Diamonds, brilliant,
And Bel Air, now.

Hot summer nights, mid-July,
When you and I were forever wild.
The crazy days, city lights,
The way you’d play with me like a child.

Will you still love me,
When I’m no longer,
Young and beautiful?
Will you still love me.
When I’ve got nothing,
But my achin’ soul?
I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will.
Will you still love me,
When I’m no longer beautiful?

I’ve seen the world, lit it up,
As my stage, now.
Channeling angels in,
The new age, now.

Hot summer days, rock and roll,
The way you’d play for me at your show.
And all the ways I got to know,
Your pretty face and electric soul.

Will you still love me,
When I’m no longer,
Young and beautiful?
Will you still love me.
When I’ve got nothing,
But my achin’ soul?
I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will.
Will you still love me,
When I’m no longer beautiful?

Dear Lord, when I get to heaven,
Please let me bring my man.
When he comes, tell me that you’ll let him in,
Father, tell me if you can.

All that grace, all that body,
All that face, makes me wanna party.
He’s my sun, he makes me shine,
Like diamonds.

And will you still love me,
When I’m no longer,
Young and beautiful?
Will you still love me.
When I’ve got nothing,
But my achin’ soul?
I know you will, I know you will,
I know that you will.
Will you still love me,
When I’m no longer beautiful?

Will you still love me,
When I’m no longer beautiful?
Will you still love me,
When I’m not young and beautiful?
