Dua Lipa – Break My Heart lyrics
[Verse 1]
I've always been the one to say the first goodbye
Had to love and lose a hundred million times
Had to get it wrong to know just what I like
Now I'm falling
You say my name like I have never heard before
I'm indecisive, but, this time, I know for sure
I hope I'm not the only one that feels it all
Are you falling?

[Pre-Chorus]
Centre of attention
You know you can get whatever you want from me
Whenever you want it, baby
It's you in my reflection
I'm afraid of all the things it could do to me
If I would've known it, baby

[Chorus]
I would've stayed at home
'Cause I was doing better alone
But when you said, "Hello"
I knew that was the end of it all
I should've stayed at home
'Cause now there ain't no letting you go
Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?
Oh no, I was doing better alone
But when you said, "Hello"
I knew that was the end of it all
I should've stayed at home
'Cause now there ain't no letting you go
Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?

[Verse 2]
I wonder, when you go, if I stay on your mind
Two can play that game, but you win me every time
Everyone before you was a waste of time
Yeah, you got me

[Pre-Chorus]
Centre of attention
You know you can get whatever you want from me
Whenever you want it, baby
It's you in my reflection
I'm afraid of all the things it could do to me
If I would've known it, baby

[Chorus]
I would've stayed at home
'Cause I was doing better alone
But when you said, "Hello"
I knew that was the end of it all
I should've stayed at home
'Cause now there ain't no letting you go
Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?
Oh no, I was doing better alone
But when you said, "Hello"
I knew that was the end of it all
I should've stayed at home
'Cause now there ain't no letting you go
Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?

[Bridge]
Ooh, break my heart
Ooh, break my heart
Ooh
Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?

[Chorus]
I would've stayed at home
'Cause I was doing better alone
But when you said, "Hello"
I knew that was the end of it all
I should've stayed at home (I would've stayed at home 'cause I–)
'Cause now there ain't no letting you go
Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?
Oh no (Oh no), I was doing better alone
But when you said, "Hello"
I knew that was the end of it all
I should've stayed at home
'Cause now there ain't no letting you go
Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?

    Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” is premised on the singer being well-tenured in the field of romance. In other words, she has dealt with various dudes in the past and comes off as somewhat of a female playa, i.e. the one who tends to terminate these romances when she gets bored. But now she has met someone new, that being the addressee. And this individual has a different effect on her. Or to put things bluntly, it’s like she is falling in love for the first time. And now she is afraid for her own emotional well being, as the same power she exercised over lovers in the past, now someone has that advantage over her. Or stated otherwise she is stuck on this individual.
    So in light of acknowledging these emotions, she also understands that the addressee actually has to power to ‘break her heart’. And such is the thesis sentiment of the lyrics. And it is basically Dua recognizing that falling in love with someone also means said individual can potentially leave her heartbroken.
    This is the third single from Dua Lipa’s sophomore album, which is entitled “Future Nostalgia”. Warner Records released it on 25 March 2020, a couple of days prior to its originally-intended release date. And Lipa has implied that the release date of the song and album itself had been moved up in response to the spread of the coronavirus.
