Did you know that there’s a tunnel under Ocean Blvd

[Verse 1]
Did you know that there's a tunnel under Ocean Boulevard?
Mosaic ceilings, painted tiles on the wall
I can't help but feel somewhat like my body marred my soul
Handmade beauty sealed up by two man-made walls, and I'm like
 
[Chorus]
When's it gonna be my turn?
When's it gonna be my turn?
Open me up, tell me you like it
Fuck me to death, love me until I love myself
There's a tunnel under Ocean Boulevard
Therе's a tunnel under Ocean Boulеvard
 
[Verse 2]
There's a girl that sings "Hotel California"
Not because she loves the notes or sounds that sound like Florida
It's because she's in a world, preserved, only a few have found the door
It's like Camarillo, only silver mirrors running down the corridor, oh, man
 
[Chorus]
When's it gonna be my turn?
Don't forget me
When's it gonna be my turn?
Open me up, tell me you like me
Fuck me to death, love me until I love myself
There's a tunnel under Ocean Boulevard
Don't forget me
There's a tunnel under Ocean Boulevard
 
[Verse 3]
Harry Nilsson has a song, his voice breaks at 2:05
Somethin' about the way he says "Don't forget me" makes me feel like
I just wish I had a friend like him, someone to get me by
Leanin' in my back, whisperin' in my ear, "Come on, baby, you can thrive," but I can't
 
[Chorus]
When's it gonna be my turn?
Don't forget me
When's it gonna be my turn?
Open me up, tell me you like it
Fuck me to death, love me until I love myself
There's a tunnel under Ocean Boulevard
 
[Bridge]
Don't forget me
Like the tunnel under Ocean Boulevard
Don't forget me
Like the tunnel under Ocean Boulevard
Don't forget me
Like the tunnel under Ocean Boulevard
 
[Outro]
Don't forget me, don't forget me
No, don't, don't forget me
Don't you, don't you forget me
 
  • a tunnel under Ocean Boulevard:

    Referencing the historical and now-hidden Jergins Tunnel which was built in 1927 with the purpose of providing safe passage to the beach for pedestrians. The remnants of it sit on Ocean Boulevard in Long Beach, California.

  • sealed up by two man-made walls:

    Lana shared an old photo of two ornate pillars or the “handmade beauty” inside the Jergins Tunnel in its prime.

    Now the tunnel is permanently closed, this is no longer visible, and is hence “sealed up by two man-made walls.”

  • "Hotel California":

    Del Rey referenced the Eagles twice before on her song “God Knows I Tried”, a song on one of her most acclaimed albums Honeymoon.

    Fans speculated that her upcoming album should hopefully resemble Honeymoon, as it is praised for its melancholic guitar melodies, sounds that weren’t as notable in her last albums, where the piano often got the overtone. Along with that, it is speculated that most of her song “Shades of Cool” contains the same chord progression as Hotel California.
