Born to Die Cover, watch the video now

New York based musician, Eli Lieb first got peoples attention when his homespun YouTube videos began receiving millions of views. His two most popular videos are Lana Del Rey – Born to Die and Adele – Someone like you. What’s more fascinating than his rapid rise to fame, which culminated in the recent release of his eponymous debut single, is how he started just a little over 2 years ago.

Eli started recording his “Place of Paradise” song about 18 months ago. He released it on YouTube in September, 2011 and it already has nearly 200,000 views. When asked what inspired his songs Eli said, “Everything reflects something that is going in my life at the present time. Some of them can be pretty emotionally intense… “Place of Paradise,” specifically, that one is a good song that sort of is representative of how I feel about life in general. It’s a song about trying to find that place of paradise inside of yourself… The song is sort of about breaking down all of your walls and letting go of what you think will make you happy and to start looking inside of yourself.”

The Lana Del Rey cover of Born to Die has been the fastest growing cover song that Mr Lieb has uploaded to YouTube to date with over 565,000 views in only 4 months! He will be releasing more originals and covers as time goes on.

LYRICS:
Feet don’t fail me now
Take me to the finish line
All my heart, it breaks every step that I take
But I’m hoping that the gates,
They’ll tell me that you’re mine
Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or design?
I feel so alone on a Friday night
Can you make it feel like home, if I tell you you’re mine
It’s like I told you honey

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh,
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I, we were born to die

Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn’t find
All the answers, honey

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh,
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh,
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause You and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
