I feel free when I see no one and nobody knows my name.
Sweet sixteen and we had arrived.
Loving me is all you need to feel.
Now my life is sweet like cinnamon, like a f*cking dream I’m living in. Baby love me cause I’m playing on the radio. Pick me up and take me like a vitamin ‘cause my body’s sweet like sugar venom. Baby love me cause I’m playing on the radio.
Live fast. Die young. Be wild. Have fun.
You’re no good for me, but baby I want you.
Growing up I was always prone to obsession, partly because of the way I am, but partly because after feeling so lonely for such a long time, when I found someone or something that I liked, I felt helplessly drawn to it. I suppose that accounts for some of the creepiness in my music.
It’s not fashionable to love me.
Sometimes I wish I was a beautiful machine so I could resist your kiss and not cry when you’re mean.
when your happiness is someone else’s happiness, that is love
Don’t leave me now. Don’t say goodbye. Don’t turn around. Leave me high and dry.
Be like snow – cold, but beautiful.
I don’t believe in the school of hard knocks, although I’ve had them. All that stuff about whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger is so not true. Do you know what makes you stronger? When people treat you and your art with dignity.
The power of youth is on my mind.
Being brave means that knowing when you fail, you won’t fail forever..
When I walk outside, people have something to say about it.
You know sometimes, baby, I’m so carefree.
You make me crazy, you make me wild.
It’s about a singer who first sneered about my allegedly not authentic style but later she stole and copied it. And now she’s acting like I am the art project and she the true super artist. My God and people actually believe her, she’s successful! I shouldn’t continue ranting, it doesn’t get anywhere.
Find someone who has a life that you want and figure out how they got it. Read books, pick your role models wisely. Find out what they did and do it.
And there no remedy for memory.
Got my blue nail polish on. It’s my favorite color and my favorite tone of song.
Loving you forever can’t be wrong.
You can’t escape my affection, Wrap you up in my daisy chains
Tell me I’m your national anthem.
Boy, look at you, looking at me.
My motto is the same just like what other people think of me is none of my business. I’m used to people saying whatever they want.
It’s so sweet pouring you a drink and pretending that nothing means anything
I believe nothing happens by mistake. You know, the universe has a divine plan. That sounds dramatic.
Am I that girl that you dream of?
Feeling like you’re respected among the people who do the same thing you do is incredible and necessary.
I have everything I want. I really can’t think of any ambitions or things to strive for.
No matter how many people give me advice, I am going to do what my heart tells me to do.
I believe in the person I want to become.
My intention was never to transform into a different person. What other people think of me is none of my business.
I belonged to no one- who belonged to everyone, who had nothing- who wanted everything with a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn’t even talk about- and pushed me to a nomadic point of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me.
I only know how to do me, so that’s just what I’m going to do.
I’ve got a war in my mind.
I have a personal ambition to live my life honestly and honor the true love that I’ve had and also the people I’ve had around me. I want to stay hopeful, even though I get scared about why we’re even alive at all.
No one compares to you, but there’s no you, except in my dreams tonight.
We have nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore- except to make our lives into a work of art.
Be young, be dope, be proud.
I love to sing and I really love to write, but in terms of being onstage, I’m not that comfortable, which I think is sort of clear.
You’re part of the past but now you’re the future.
Every night I used to pray that I’d find my people- and finally I did- on the open road. We have nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore- except to make our lives into a work of art.
If you are born an artist, you have no choice but to fight to stay an artist.
I believe in the kindness of strangers. And when I’m at war with myself I ride, I just ride.
I keep my lips red to seem like cherries in the spring.
Um, do you think you’ll buy me lots of diamonds?
I am nostalgic of an era I never knew.
There’s no use in talking to people who have a home, they have no idea what its like to seek safety in other people, for home to be wherever you lay your head.
I’ve been writing since I was really young, so I considered myself a writer for a really long time.
Wining and dining, drinking and driving, Excessive buying, overdosin’, dyin’, On our drugs and our love, And our dreams and our rage.
I mainly let my imagination be my reality. Fantasy is my reality.
Distance sometimes lets you know who is worth keeping, and who is worth letting go.
Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
If you consider the definition of authenticity, it’s saying something and actually doing it. I write my own songs. I made my own videos. I pick my producers. Nothing goes out without my permission. It’s all authentic.
I’ve got nothing much to live for ever since I found my fame.
I used to wonder if it was God’s plan that I should be alone for so much of my life. But I found peace. I found happiness within people and the world.
I think I’ll miss you forever, like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies.
There’s backlash about everything I do.
I was always an unusual girl. My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral comp*ss pointing due north, no fixed personality; just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean.
Do you think we’ll be in love forever?
When you’re an introvert like me and you’ve been lonely for a while, and then you find someone who understands you, you become really attached to them. It’s a real release.
I want money, power, and glory.
I haven’t had anything done at all… I’m quite pouty. That’s just how I look when I sing.
Synchronicites . It’s been said that coincidences are God’s way of remaining anonymous. Synchronicities are a sign of divinity. You breathe in deeply and say: ‘I don’t want anything. I’m going to let things happen’
it takes getting everything you ever wanted and then losing it, to know what true freedom is
They judge me like a picture book, by the colors, like they forgot to read.
Kiss me hard before you go. Summertime sadness. I just wanted you to know. That, baby, you’re the best.
