Swimming pool, glimmering darling

from Lana Del Rey – Off To The Races Lyrics on Rap Genius


In the novel Lolita, Lolita spends a lot of time in the swimming pools at the hotels she and her captor stays in.

The glimmering reflects her youth and innocence. Yet, similiar to how Lorde uses swimming pools to calm down, the pool acts as a place of respite for Lana.
