“Let Me Love You Like A Woman” Lyrics Meaning & Song Review
Verse 1/Verse 2
Lana Del Rey mentions the small town she was born in and grew up in when she was young. She mentions her hometown of Lake Placid in New York in her 2019 song “Looking for America.” The reason she mentions her small hometown is because she is fed up with the big city of Los Angeles she is currently residing in. Maybe the big city lights have not been too kind to her.
But, Lana Del Rey does not want to leave her lover in the city. She wants him to come with her to her small town where they would spend a stress-free life in isolation.
If her partner does decide to stay back in the big city, Lana Del Rey thinks to herself that she might be okay with it too. But she will be quite sad and she will not enjoy her stay in this small town as much.
Lana Del Rey sings of all the adorable things she would do to him like loving him like a proper woman and treat him like her precious baby. This is who she is–strong, nurturing, loving, and tender. She asks him to let her be herself.
In the bridge of the song, Lana Del Rey shouts out to Prince’s classic hit “Purple Rain.” This song, too, bases around a relationship surviving through worse odds.
She also tells her partner of the fun things they could do in this small town such as listen to Prince’s classic tracks, reminisce about the good old days, and indulge in some ‘pink champagne,’ which is slang for the drug MDMA.
