Never Let Me Go is an unreleased leaked track. It is believed to be an outtake from the Born to Die album....
Hold me in your arms
Love me like your best friends did
Promise, I won't hurt you kid
Hold me really tight until the stars look big
Never let me go

All the world is ours
Like they say in Scarface kid
You can push your drugs and I can make it big
Singing CBGB's have a real good gig
Hey you never know

Cause baby we were born to live fast and die young
Born to be bad, have fun
Honey, you and me can be one
Just believe, come on

If you love me hardcore then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Boy, we're in a world war
Let's go all the way
Put your foot to the floor
Really walk away
Tell me that you need me more and more everyday
Never let me go, just stay

We gonna go far
I can already taste it kid
LA's gonna look real good
Drive me in your car until the sky gets big
Never let me go

Send me to the stars
Tell me when I get there kid
I can be your Nancy
You can be my Sid
Get into some trouble like our parents did
Hey, they'll never know
Cause baby we were born to be bad
Move on
Built to go fast
Stay strong
Honey, you and me and no one
Just believe
Come on

If you love me hardcore, then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Boy, we're in a world war
Let's go all the way
Put your foot to the floor
Really walk away
Tell me that you need me more and more everyday
Never let me go, just stay

I remember when I saw you for the first time
You were laughing
Sparking like a new dime
I came over
"Hello, can you be mine?"
Can you be mine
Can you be mine?

If you love me hardcore then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Baby it's a sweet life
Sing it like a song
It's a short trip
Only getting one who can count on my love more than anyone
Never let me go

If you love me hardcore then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Boy, we're in a world war
Let's go all the way
Put your foot to the floor
Really walk away
Tell me that you need me more and more everyday
Never let me go, just stay

    General CommentShe just wants to be in love with this guy, no games no playing, no letting anyone else get in the way. She just wants him to show his love by never leaving. And she tells him all the time, because she wants him to know that she's serious. "If you love me hardcore, then don't walk away." The hot and cold game is one that she doesn't want to play. That life is too short to not live it to the fullest, because time passes fast, and we get old fast so lets enjoy the moments we have together.

    "Kid" is just name people call people here in the U.S. that are young, I think its just a reference to how young they are.

    My Opinionthis is my favorite lana del rey song.
    It's like taking me back to the age that Lana often refers to, like Scarface, CBGB, Nancy and Sid, they are all vintage.
    And even though in this song, lana doesn't give too much fancy singing techniques, she sings it with her sincere (and still vintage) voice which actually touches my heart more deeply.

    This song makes me want to fall in with with sb. as deep as lana del rey falls with this "kid" in Never Let Me Go.

    My OpinionThis is one of my absolute favourite Lana songs, I discovered it randomly on Youtube and it literally speaks to my soul!

    She sounds so in love with this guy and so genuine about her feelings for him
    'If you love me hardcore then don't walk away' is such a beautiful line. Favourite song and it deserves more comments!
