Ride - Lana Del Rey

Once again, a stunning music video from Lana Del Rey
If you haven't watched it yet, this is the epic 10 minutes-short film, where Del Rey appears as a troubled, wandering biker girl at war with herself.
The words of the monologue are incredibly moving
If you believe in the freedom of the open road, here you are.

...Live Fast...
...Die Young...
...Be Wild...
...Have Fun...

"Ride" will appear on Lana Del Rey's upcoming Born To Die: Paradise Edition re-issue.
