It's alarming honestly how charming she can be
Fooling everyone, telling how she's having fun

from Lana Del Rey – Carmen Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Carmen is a smooth talker. When this is combined with her stunning appearance she is often fairly persuasive. She seduces people extremely easily because of this.

However, this charming exterior is simply a front for her sad inner self. In order to avoid being vulnerable, Carmen feels like she has to be this way. She’s just putting on a brave face.
