Marina - How to Be a Heartbreaker

[Verse 1]
Rule number one
Is that you gotta have fun
But, baby, when you're done
You gotta be the first to run
Rule number two
Just don't get attached to
Somebody you could lose
So le-let me tell you

[Chorus]
This is how to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like a little danger
We'll get him falling for a stranger, a player
Singin' I lo-lo-lo-love you
How to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like the look of danger
We'll get him falling for a stranger, a player
Singing I lo-lo-lo-love you
At least I think I do
'Cause I lo-lo-lo-love you

[Verse 2]
Rule number three
Wear your heart on your cheek
But never on your sleeve
Unless you want to taste defeat
Rule number four
Gotta be looking pure
Kiss him goodbye at the door
And leave him wanting more, more

"How to Be a Heartbreaker" is a song by Welsh recording artist Marina (formerly 'Marina and the Diamonds') from her second studio album, Electra Heart (2012). The song was written after the original version of Electra Heart was finished, and therefore appears only on the US edition of the album. It was released as the album's third UK single and second US one. The song was covered by Dean Geyer and Lea Michele on the Glee episode "Feud". The song was written by Marina, Ammar Malik, Daniel Omelio, Benny Blanco, Cirkut, and Dr. Luke, and produced by the latter three. How to Be a Heartbreaker was Part 7 of 'The Archetypes', and is a 'Homewrecker' song, along with Power & Control, E.V.O.L and Homewrecker. Marina said that How to Be a Heartbreaker was the only new track on the US edition of her album Electra Heart, and she wrote it "as the UK album was being printed." Lyrically, she stated the song "basically involves four rules on how to be a heartbreaker. It's a guide for everyone!" The album was mixed in early January 2012, therefore, as the song was written "about a week" after the physical copies of the UK album were done, the song was likely made in the spring of 2012.
