"Your Girl" is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey, co-written and produced by Rick Nowels.

Background

The song was written and produced by Del Rey and Nowels in 2013, during the same sessions as "I Can Fly","Yes to Heaven", "Shades of Cool", "Is This Happiness" "Fine China", and "Sad Girl", for Del Rey's third major-label album Ultraviolence, however the track was ultimately cut from the final release when the album was reworked with Dan Auerbach.

Three snippets, including snippets of stems of the track, leaked August 15, 2016. The full instrumental lacking a drum stem leaked on January 28, 2017, followed by another snippet on March 21 of the same year. An edited version of the track with vocals leaked on April 18, 2017.

Composition

"Your Girl" is a slow rock ballad with elements of blues, soul and jazz. The song is set in the key of D minor playing at approximately 120 beats per minute. Instrumentation for the track consists of a synthesised bass, strumming electric guitar, strings and a prominent use of an organ in the chorus. Lyrically, the track depicts Del Rey, tired from performing, asking an old flame to carry her to her bed while lamenting about how their relationship could have been.

Lyrics

Carry me off the stage
I can’t do this anymore
Been gone for three years, is that enough for you boy?

Carry me to my bed, paint my toenails blue
Tell me all about the things that you and I will never do

I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl

I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl

Carry me off the stage
I’ve had too much to drink
Been on tour too long
And I've had too much time to think

Carry me to my bed, lay me on a bed of down
Kiss me on my head
Remind me of the way we will not know

I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl

I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl

Late at night, lady on the side
Call me late if you wanna get high
Late at night, laying in Versailles
You and I get to know one another

Late at night, baby you’re my sign
Call me late if you wanna get high
Late at night, baby you and I
Can get to know one another

I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl

I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl
I wish I was your girl
