"All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you
"

IntroEdit

Lana-del-rey-born-to-die-2
Without You is Track 13 on Lana's Born to Die: Deluxe Edition album, as part of the three bonus songs available on that edition along with Lucky Ones and Lolita.

It was written by Grant and Sacha Skarbek, and is 3 minutes 49 seconds long. It is registered on both her BMI and her ASCAP.

Two demos have leaked online. One is pretty similar to the chosen version. The other has slightly different lyrics. For instance the chorus;

Hello, hello,
Boy can you hear me?
I can be your china doll if you like it when i fall
I know, I know, it's kinda scary
I'm falling down, down down, down
But it means nothing, without you
All the dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you

And in the second verse the change from "Can you picture it? Babe, that life we could've lived" to "Can you picture this? Honey can you picture this?"

And finally the last two lines of the third verse were changed to "Living life on the run, living life out loud. It was nothing like what it seemed."

Live performances can also be found.

It is a lovelorn song.

LyricsEdit

Everything I want, I have
Money, notoriety and rivieras
I even think I found God
In the flashbulbs of the pretty cameras
Pretty cameras, pretty cameras
Am I glamorous? Tell me, am I glamorous?

Hello, hello,
Ca-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll if you wanna see me fall
Boy you're so dope, your love is deadly
Tell me life is beautiful, they all think I have it all
I've nothing without you
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you

Summertime is nice and hot
And my life is sweet like vanilla is
Gold and silver lined my heart
But burned into my brain are these stolen images
Stolen images, baby stolen images
Can you picture it? Babe, that life we could've lived

Hello, hello
Ca-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll if you like to see me fall
Boy you're so dope, your love is deadly
Tell me life is beautiful, they all think I have it all
I've nothing without you
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you

We were two kids just trying to get out
Lived on the dark side of the American dream
We would dance all night, play our music loud
but when we grew up, nothing was what it seemed

Hello, hello,
Ca-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll if you like to see me fall
Boy you're so dope, your love is deadly
Tell me life is beautiful, they think that I have it all
I've nothing without you
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you

Hello, hello,
Ca-can you hear me?
I can be your china doll if you like to see me fall
Boy you're so dope, your love is deadly
Tell me life is beautiful, they think that I have it all
I've nothing without you
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing without you
All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing if I can't have you
