Trivia

  • Ariana first revealed that she had collaborated on a song with Zedd on April 28, 2014.[7]
  • Zedd knew he wanted to collaborate with Ariana Grande after he heard her voice for the first time at another show they were both at. He said, "I was backstage and I heard someone sing. And I didn't know who it was, and I just said 'I want to make a song with whoever is singing right now.' I didn't know who it was, and it turned out being her. And luckily, now there's a song!"
  • This is Ariana's first EDM (Electronic Dance Music) song.
  • Zedd and Ariana didn't actually meet until the 2014 Wango Tango after the song was finished.
  • Ariana said the song is "fantastic and super-experimental for me. I never thought I'd do an EDM song, but that was an eye-opening experience, and now all I want to do is dance."[7]
  • Jai Brooks was on the set of the music video.

Lyrics

If you want it, take it
I should've said it before
Tried to hide it, fake it
I can't pretend anymore

I only wanna die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really are

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

You were better, deeper
I was under your spell
Like a deadly fever (yeah, babe)
On the highway to hell

I only wanna die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really are

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
Oh, my baby

Thought on your body I came alive
It was lethal
It was fatal
In my dreams it felt so right
But I woke up every time
Oh baby

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
