She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet were her eyes

from Lana Del Rey – Blue Velvet Lyrics on Rap Genius


Lana continues to remember this woman. She has great nostalgia for their time together. Lana’s life seems to have a large hole in it after her passing.

Lana gives the impression that this woman was infinitely beautiful, all her features are dark and distinct — including her piercing eyes.


The fact that this woman is personified to being darker than the night implies that she has a hidden side. Perhaps she was not as pretty as she seemed on the outside on the inside.
