​hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have - but i have it by Lana Del Rey Lyrics

I was reading Slim Aarons and I got to thinking that I thought
Maybe I'd get less stressed if I was tested less like
All of these debutantes
Smiling for miles in pink dresses and high heels on white yachts
But I'm not, baby, I'm not
No, I'm not, that, I'm not

I've been tearing around in my f**king nightgown
24/7 Sylvia Plath
Writing in blood on the walls
'Cause the ink in my pen don't work in my notepad
Don't ask if I'm happy, you know that I'm not
But at best, I can say I'm not sad
'Cause hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have

I had fifteen-year dances
Church basement romances, yeah, I've cried
Spilling my guts with the Bowery Bums
Is the only love I've ever known
Except for the stage, which I also call home, when I'm not
Servin' up God in a burnt coffee pot for the triad
Hello, it's the most famous woman you know on the iPad
Calling from beyond the grave, I just wanna say, "Hi, Dad"

I've been tearing up town in my f**king white gown
Like a goddamn near sociopath
Shaking my ass is the only thing that's
Got this black narcissist off my back
She couldn't care less, and I never cared more
So there's no more to say about that
Except hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman with my past

There's a new revolution, a loud evolution that I saw
Born of confusion and quiet collusion of which mostly I've known
A modern day woman with a weak constitution, 'cause I've got
Monsters still under my bed that I could never fight off
A gatekeeper carelessly dropping the keys on my nights off

I've been tearing around in my f**king nightgown
24/7 Sylvia Plath
Writing in blood on your walls
'Cause the ink in my pen don't look good in my pad
They write that I'm happy, they know that I'm not
But at best, you can see I'm not sad
But hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have

Hope is a dangerous thing” is a quote by the character Red (played by Morgan Freeman) in the 1994 prison film The Shawshank Redemption. In the film, he says:

Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.

This was in response to Tim Robbins' character Andy describing how music gave him hope during his time in solitary confinement. Lana gender-flips the quote to further drive home her feminist point-of-view, while the mention of insanity links to Lana’s description of “tearing around in [her] f**king nightgown” and writing in blood on the walls.

It’s notable that The Shawshank Redemption was originally written by contemporary gothic-horror author Stephen King. This further connects with the Americana literary theme of the song, and Norman F**king Rockwell.

On an interview with BAAZAR Magazine on February 2019 Lana explained the meaning behind “hope” for her in the song:

Knowing that it’s okay for the culture to be in a bit of disruption, and that if we can just lean into that and try to find a uniting factor in it, that’s the big takeaway. Things have been confusing for a long time, whether it’s politically, culturally, personally. Down the ages, everyone’s had their own trials and tribulations. So any time I get stressed, I just remind myself it’s kind of supposed to be stressful. Life is stressful. When I have the most fun is just when I’m with my friends, my girlfriends, who I value so much, just spending time with them and keeping everything super simple. When I’m not working, or when I’m not playing shows, I’m really just on the phone, full eighth grade-style chatting with my friends and catching up. I think just knowing that I’m on the same page with the people in my life who I’m the closest with gives me the most hope.
