Summertime sadness by lana del ray Part 2

Lyrics says:

I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin' by 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight.

I think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies
Later's better than never
Even if you're gone I'm gonna drive, drive

Kindly explain "I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight." and
"Even if you're gone I'm gonna drive, drive"

I wanna translate it into Chinese to introduce the imagery of Summertime Sadness
to my friend.

Thx~

    "I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight"

    In this sentence "if I go" means "if I die". He just didn't want to use the word "die" twice in the same line.

    "Even if you're gone I'm gonna drive, drive"

    This one is a little more obscure, but I think it's supposed to mean: "even if you're dead, I'm going to continue living"

    Hope it helps :)
