"Break My Fall" is an unreleased song by Diana Vickers written by Lana Del Rey. The track was co-written and produced by Anthony Whiting and Miranda Cooper.

BackgroundEdit

Del Rey originally wrote and recorded the song in 2010. It was intended to be released on her then-upcoming debut Born to Die but was ultimately left out from the final tracklisting. The demo leaked on December 5, 2012.

On March 9, 2013, a minute long snippet of Diana Vickers performing the song live leaked. In April 2013, the tracklisting and cover of her sophmore album Music to Make Boys Cry leaked through iTunes, although a revised tracklist revealed July 24, 2013 showed that the track had been cut alongside 4 other songs. Vickers' demo leaked July 31, 2013, featuring new production and slightly tweaked lyrics.

LyricsEdit

Lana Del Rey demoEdit

The greatest line in history: "Baby, it's not you, it's me."
What, you think I'm dumb-dumb, baby doll?
I'm big enough and bad enough
And I can tell when things get rough
And nothing that you say can break my fall

(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Stop right there
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
If you really care

Don't go and blow it all, it's bad enough, baby
I don't wanna hear you sayin', "It's not you, it's me."
If there's blood on my hands, you should let me know
If you're done with the dance, you should let me go, oh
Baby, you've said it all
There's nothing you can say to break my fall

The greatest lie in history: "Baby, it's not you, it's me."
Do you really think I'll buy your bullshit, boy?
Oh, whoa
Give a girl her self-respect
You haven't gone and hurt me yet
But you know that I'll crumble if you call

(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Stop right there
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
If you really care

Don't go and blow it all, it's bad enough, baby
I don't wanna hear you sayin', "It's not you, it's me."
If there's blood on my hands, you should let me know
If you're done with the dance, you should let me go, oh
Baby, you've said it all
There's nothing you can say to break my fall

I'm not gonna let you become a martyr
Not gonna let you pick up the gun
I'm gonna make this a whole lot harder
Won't make it easy for you to run

I'm not gonna let you become a martyr
Not gonna let you pick up the gun
I'm gonna make this a whole lot harder
Won't make it easy for you to run

Don't go and blow it all, it's bad enough, baby
I don't wanna hear you sayin', "It's not you, it's me."
If there's blood on my hands, you should let me know
If you're done with the dance, you should let me go, oh
Baby, you've said it all
There's nothing you can say to break my fall

Don't go and blow it all, it's bad enough, baby
I don't wanna hear you sayin', "It's not you, it's me."
If there's blood on my hands, you should let me know
If you're done with the dance, you should let me go, oh
Baby, you've said it all
There's nothing you can say to break my fall

Dumb, dumb, baby doll?

And I can tell when things get rough,
And nothing you say,
Can break my fall.

But you know that I'll crumble,
If you call.

Not gonna let you pick up the gun.
I'm gonna make this a whole lot harder,
Won't make it easy for you to run.

I'm not gonna let you declare surrender,
Not gonna let you pick up the gun.
I’ll give you a goodbye that you’ll remember,
Won't make it easy for you to run!

Don't go and blow it all,
It's bad enough, baby.
I don't wanna hear you sayin',
"It's not you; it's me."

You should let me know.
If you're done with the dance,
You should let me go, oh!
Baby, you've said it all,
There's nothing you can say,
To break my fall.
