"I Wanna Be With You" or "I Wanna Be With U" is a song written by Lady Gaga in 2013. The first mention of the song came with a tweet on February 10, 2013 which included the lyric: "I would rather be poor and happy than rich and alone". The song was performed at the iTunes Festival and she explained that the song was written when The Born This Way Ball was canceled.

The song was supposed to be included on ARTPOP, but Gaga opted to replace it with "Dope", A new song created using the melody of the song but different lyrics. Shortly after the iTunes Festival, Bobby Campbell of the Haus of Gaga confirmed that "I Wanna Be With U" became "Dope". The song references her song, "Born This Way" in the line "cause I was born this way"

While performing "Dope" at the final artRAVE in Paris, Lady Gaga performed a short version of "I Wanna Be With You".

Lyrics

It’s off, it’s on
The party’s just begun
Take off, and run
Let’s celebrate the fun of being young
I don’t wanna grow up
I don’t wanna grow up

But when the lights come on
You lift me up, and I feel strong

I won’t be right without you
And I might break without you
I’d rather be poor and happy than rich and alone
I’ll write hit songs about you
No matter how we’ll get through
I’ll keep on singing for a living, but I wanna be in love
And I wanna be with you

I wanna be with you…
Lights off, lights on
The music has begun
More light, you run, and get the bad guy’s gun
I love the songs that you play
And I don’t care what they say
Cause I was born this way

When I hear you scream, I hit the top of the stage and
Close my eyes, I know exactly who I am

I won’t be right without you
And I might break without you
I’d rather be poor and happy than rich and alone
I’ll write hit songs about you
No matter how we’ll get through
I’ll keep on singing for a living, but I wanna be in love
And I wanna be with you

I wanna be with you…
I won’t be right without you
And I might break without you
I’d rather be poor and happy than rich and alone
I’ll write hit songs about you
No matter how we’ll get through
I’ll keep on singing for a living, but I wanna be in love
And I wanna be with you

Wanna be with you, wanna be with you
Wanna be with you, wanna be …

No matter what breaks me, I wanna be, with you
