Lana Del Rey – Million Dollar Man Lyrics 2 years ago
I think that the song is about her falling in love for a guy that she knows is playing her. Maybe she was using him as well (at first), they were using each other because they were tired of past relationships, maybe just as a rebound. But her playing is over, she really is falling for him, but now her heart's broke because he hasn't fallen in love for her like she has for him.

You said I was the most exotic flower
Holding me tight in our final hour

This was when theyre both immersed in their superficial relationship. The guy is perfect for words, he knows just what to say to make them all feel special, but thats the thing, its just something he says, not something said specially for her.

I don't know how you convince them and get them, but
I don't know what you do, it's unbelievable

She thought she wouldn't fall for him because at the beginning she was just aiming for something superficial, she doesnt know what he did to make her fall for him when that was not her objective. Not only her, but the rest of the girls; hence the "them".

And I don't know how you get over, get over
Someone as dangerous, tainted and flawed as you

She accepts that she has developed feelings for him. He's dangerous because hes perfect, he's tainted by his past relationships and probably thats why he's like this now, a full-on player. But at the same time he's flawless, because she has fallen for him, and no one is perfect until you fall in them.

One for the money, and two for the show
I love you honey, I'm ready, I'm ready to go
How did you get that way? I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant,
Look like a million dollar man,
So why is my heart broke?

I take it like if she's scoring the guy's actions. One point for the money, (maybe he really has a lot of money, or maybe its symbolism for concrete rewards, for the kisses, the sex or the dates) two points for the show, (for pretending he likes her, or loves her, but its just part of an act, because he really doesnt love her). She acts like she loves him as well because that what they had agreed, only her feelings arent an act anymore, she actually has them. She cant believe she has fallen for him because she swore to herself she wouldn't get into another relationship, so she is confused as to why she has left her guard down, So why is my heart broke?

You got the world but baby at what price?
Something so strange, hard to define

Now shes trying to try to convince him. Yeah, he has love and sex from many different girls but at what price? what is he really doing to these girls or to himself? will he always be cold and hold his heart in a golden cage?

It isn't that hard boy to like you or love you
I'd follow you down down down,
You're unbelievable
If you're going crazy just grab me and take me
I'd follow you down down down, anywhere anywhere

Shes crazy for him. She's willing to keep her feelings to herself, just to follow him, anywhere, even down to the point where she'll hide her feelings in sake of keeping his fake love she feels is so real.

Maybe this is just my situation though
