"Resistance" (also known as "True Love (It Comes Once)") is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey. It was co-written and produced with Crispin Hunt in 2010. It is registered to the International Standard Music Work Code.

Background and compositionEdit

"Resistance" is a pop rock song running at 3 minutes and 34 seconds. It is in the key of B major and performed at approximately 112 beats per minute. It features an electric guitar riff played throughout the song, punchy drum beats, and a lead synth in the final chorus. Del Rey's vocals are playful and multilayered, especially towards the end of the song where she performs multiple ad-libs. The song is about a relationship where one partner keeps leading the other on, much to their exasperation.

Two snippets of the song leaked under alternate titles on August 15, 2016, and a third snippet leaked on August 27, 2016. The full song leaked on September 6, 2016. The track is one of two songs Del Rey is known to have produced with Crispin Hunt, alongside "Every Man Gets His Wish", and it is assumed they were recorded in the same sessions.

LyricsEdit

Ooh, baby, when you call me, I come to
From dreams I awake, and I'm waitin' for you
Ooh, baby, when you call me, I come to
I jump through hula hoops of fire just to get to you

You're makin' me crazy, oh, little baby
Shut your complainin', why-y-y-y?
You make me so angry, someone should pay me
Why don't you get a sty-y-y-yle?
Make me smile

Love's been killin' me, but I willingly go
You're kidding me, why keep leading me on?
Keep killin' me, won't stop stealing my heart
Keep killin' me, won't stop bleedin' my soul

You know I'd go the distance
The path of least resistance

Ooh, honey, when you call me, I want to
Stay on the telephone for hours just to get you home
Oh, sugar, when you call me after school
I see your smile and I could run a methampheta-mile

I'll never forget it, oh, you'll regret it
Nowhere to kiss it, aye-aye-aye-aye
Take it or leave it, better believe it
You'll never see it, why-y-y-y?
Say goodbye

Love's been killin' me, but I willingly go
You're kidding me, why keep leading me on?
Keep killin' me, won't stop stealing my heart
Keep killin' me, won't stop bleedin' my soul

You know I'd go the distance
The path of least resistance

New kind of porno
One that has yet been born, oh

Lovin' you's like lovin' a hurricane, I'm tired of
All the mess you make, all the hearts you break
Lovin' you's like lovin' a dirty bomb, you're blowin' up
All the cash unpaid, all the love we made

Love's been killin' me, but I willingly go
You're kiddin' me, why keep leading me on?
Keep killin' me, won't stop stealin' my heart
Keep killin' me, won't stop bleedin' my soul

Love's been killin' me, but I willingly go
(Love's been killin' me, but I willingly go)
You're kiddin' me, why keep leading me on?
(You're kiddin' me, why keep leading me on?)
Keep killin' me, won’t stop stealin' my heart
(Stop stealin' my heart, stop bleedin' my soul)
Keep killin' me, won’t stop bleedin' my soul
(You know I'll go, you know I’ll go willingly)

You know I’d go the distance
The path of least resistance
Your problem with commitment’s
The bane of my existence

True love, it comes once
You messed it up, you stupid…
