"Praise differently" series 7.: Lana del Rey

The Father and her Man.

While I listen regularly to praise and worship songs, I’m fascinated by the artists who are in the mainstream, and write songs about God and their spiritual life.

Lana del Rey in the "Praise differently" series? Well, maybe I should have started with her. The strange Christian mysticism in her short film, the Tropico and the numerous songs about her spirituality add up to one of the most popular sets of religious diamonds on Earth. Even if I don't always understand it. Even if it sometimes confuses me rather than gives direction. 

But... did YOU notice those unbelievable verses in the Young and 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

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 aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
