}}"'''You're Gonna Love Me'''" is an unreleased song by [[Lana Del Rey]]. The song is speculated to have been written early in Del Rey's career. A long snippet leaked on July 7, 2012. The lyrics imply that the song was intended to be a track on a full album ("Jim, I dedicate this whole album to you"), so it may be considered an outtake from either ''[[Young Like Me (EP)|Young Like Me]]'' or ''[[From The End (EP)|From the End]]'', though this is not confirmed.

LyricsEdit

Studio version Edit

Jerry says that any time I think I have a good idea
That I should do the opposite of whatever it is I feel

And that's because I have a bad mind
And I have gold in my veins
But he says I got the purest heart
That he's ever seen, oh

What'd God give me a brain for if He won't help me use it?
What'd God give me a plan for if He won't help me do it?
You're gonna love me, I'm gonna make you
You're gonna love me
I'm gonna make you

Well, I can tell that you're the type to never trust a beauty queen
But I was never voted for nothing in high school

Never meaned anything to anybody
Never ever gave myself away
But even when I'm funny
You think I'm actin', so I say

What'd God give me a brain for if He won't let me use it?
What'd God give me a plan for? He never helps me do it
You're gonna love me, I'm gonna have to make you
You're gonna love me
I'm gonna make you

You say that you don't want to be hypnotized
But, baby, I, I don't wanna hypnotize you

There's nothin' from you that I wanna take
I just wanna be like you
Maybe love you just a little bit
Please?

Oh-oh, ooh

Jim, I dedicate this whole album to you
You told me to get my way, that's exactly what I'm gonna do

I'm gonna strike out right now
I'm strikin' out right now with this song
But I can't help myself
I can't do right for long, you know that

What'd God gave me a brain for? He knows that I can't use it
I don't know why he'd give me a plan for, he never lets me do it
But you're gonna love me, I'm gonna make you
You're gonna love me
I'm gonna make you

A cappella demo Edit

Jerry says that any time I think I find a good idea
That I should do the opposite of whatever it is I feel

And that's because I got a bad mind
And I got gold in my veins
But he says I got the purest heart
That he's ever seen, mhm

What'd God give me a brain for if He won't help me use it?
What'd God give me a plan for if He won't help me do it?
You're gonna love me, I'm gonna make you
You're gonna love me
I'm gonna make you

Well, I can tell that you're the type to never trust a beauty queen
But I was never voted for nothing in high school

Never meaned anything to anybody
Never ever gave myself away
But even when I'm funny
You think I'm actin', and I say

What'd God give me a brain for if He won't let me use it?
What'd God give me a plan for? He never lets me do it
You're gonna love me, I'm gonna have to make you
You're gonna love me, oh-oh
I'm gonna make you

You say that you don't want to be hypnotized
But, baby, I, I don't wanna hypnotize you

There's nothin' from you that I wanna take
I just wanna be like you
And maybe love you just a little bit
Please?

Oh-oh, ooh, mhm

I can tell that right now,
I'm striking out now with this song
But I can't help myself
I can't do right for long, you know that

What'd God gave me a brain for if He won't let me use it
What'd God give me a plan for? He never lets me do it
You're gonna love me, I'm gonna have to make you
You're gonna love me
I'm gonna make you
