"I always feel uncomfortable spending anyone's money, but I really did want the tigers, just because of what they symbolize to me, and just visually, they're so striking. I always like the vision of a girl in a white nightgown with two majestic tigers." - Lana Del Rey
"It's about my boyfriend. When I found someone that made me feel really happy, that was so different to the way I'd felt before in my life." - Lana Del Rey
"I consider the record a homage to true love lost and a tribute to living life on the wild side. When I was young I was overwhelmed by thoughts of my own mortality, but I also found fleeting moments of happiness in the arms of my lover and friends. This track and the record are about these two worlds — death and love — coming together." - Lana Del Rey
