Mitski - The Only Heartbreaker

[Verse 1]
If you would just make one mistake
What a relief that would be
But I think for as long as we're together
I'll be the only heartbreaker

I'll be the only heartbreaker
I'll be the only heartbreaker

[Verse 2]
So I'll be the loser in this game
I'll be the bad guy in the play
I'll be the water main that's burst and flooding
You'll be by the window, only watching

I'll be the only heartbreaker
I'll bе the only heartbreakеr

(I apologize)
(You forgive me)
(I apologize)
(You forgive me)
And make me the only heartbreaker
So I'll be the only heartbreaker

“The Only Heartbreaker” is the second single released from Mitski’s sixth album Laurel Hell. It was released on November 9, 2021, alongside a music video where she burns down a forest, then the planet simply with her presence. After the song’s release, Mitski’s social media announced the album and pre-sale of merchandise. In a statement for Rolling Stone, Mitski explained the core inspiration behind the song: " (It is about) the person always messing up in the relationship, the designated Bad Guy who gets the blame. It could simply be about that, but I also wanted to depict something sadder beneath the surface, that maybe the reason you’re always the one making mistakes is because you’re the only one trying."
