The Veronicas

About Lolita

"Lolita" is a song recorded by Australian duo The Veronicas, released on 27 July 2012. It was written by The Veronicas' Jessica Origliasso and Lisa Origliasso, together with Laura Pergolizzi and Toby Gad, while production was handled by Gad. The song was released as the lead single for what was meant to be their third studio album Life on Mars. However, due to complications with their label Warner Bros. Records, the album was shelved. They were subsequently signed to Sony Music and the album was retitled The Veronicas, but "Lolita" did not appear on the record. The song was later included on their Spotify compilation album Untouched. "Lolita" is inspired by the Vladimir Nabokov novel of the same name and explores the themes of power play in intimate relationships between people who differ in age and sex. The track was received positively by critics who praised the dark recording. "Lolita" charted in Australia at number twenty-three on the ARIA Singles Chart and was certified gold. The accompanying music video for "Lolita" was directed by Spencer Susser and features Lisa and Jessica leading an army of masked individuals to attack an alien. To promote the track, The Veronicas performed on various television and radio programs in Australia.

 Struggling with Lolita? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

From the mouths of babes to the power of men
I make it all new again
Hold my hand, hold my hand 'cause I can't touch the ground
The carousel goes around, round and round
The addiction, the friction, it burns you alive
So illegal, no evil is seen with these eyes
I won't tell if you won't and I will if you want
Nothing is sacred, don't care if it's wrong

I'm your Lolita, La Femme Nikita
When we're together, you'll love me forever
You're my possession, I'm your obsession
Don't tell me never, you'll love me forever

Doomed from the start, we can't stay apart
Everywhere I turn I'm trapped in your heart
There's no escape, secrets keep you awake
No running away, no saving the day
Wild and exciting I'm breaking you down
You're making a comeback, I'm taking your crown
Nursery rhymes, I'm singing my dreams
I'm lost in the woods and you're baring your teeth

I'm your Lolita, La Femme Nikita
When we're together, you'll love me forever
You're my possession, I'm your obsession
Don't tell me never, you'll love me forever

Always stay close to me
Don't think of leaving
And I promise, I will keep our secret (secret, secret)

I'm your Lolita, La Femme Nikita
When we're together, you'll love me forever
You're my possession, I'm your obsession
Don't tell me never, you'll love me forever

Always stay close to me
Don't think of leaving
And I promise, I will keep our secret (secret, secret, secret, secret, secret)
