Lyrics

 

Well who wouldn't notice the fire in your eyes

Or the bitter direction of pending goodbyes?

I'm fallin', I'm folded, I'm wilted in place

At the sight of you standin' with streaks down your face

 

You got your heart broke, you go runnin' from the reason

Got your heart broke, don't give up on believin' in me

Heartbroke, who kept me from leavin' with my heart broke

 

Well cryin' when you're rich is a bore if you're lonely

Sheer madness prevails upon reason to yield

But all is not lost, it is only mistaken

A small consolation but I know just how you feel

 

You got your heart broke, you go runnin' from the reason

Got your heart broke, don't give up on believin' in me

Heartbroke, who kept me from leavin' with my heart broke

 

Well nobody said it was goin' to be easy

We all have our weak sides that need a soft good touch.

Nobody said that it would not be worth it

But human condition continues as such

 

You got your heart broke, you go runnin' from the reason

Got your heart broke, don't give up on believin' in me

Heartbroke, who kept me from leavin' with my heart broke

 

You kept me from leavin' with my heart broke

With my heart broke, with my heart broke

You got your heart broke
