Heartbreak on Hold
Alexandra Burke Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Heartbreak on hold

I tried everything to get over you
Tryin' to make it through and nothing ever seems to
Work
Dead in the bed, a thousand tears were she'd
You should get out my head
Nothing takes away the hurt

I can't stay here, can't stay

I'm going out tonight
I'm dancing all alone (heartbreak on hold)
Close my eyes
It's time to let it go (heartbreak on hold)
I'm gonna take it to the dance floor doing it on my own
Tonight, putting my heartbreak on hold (heartbreak on
Hold)
Heartbreak on hold

It's been so long
Since I had some fun
But no I can't run, I hope the music numbs the pain
I need something to take me away
I just need a sweet escape

I can't stay here, can't stay

I'm going out tonight
I'm dancing all alone (heartbreak on hold)
Close my eyes
It's time to let it go (heartbreak on hold)
I'm gonna take it to the dance floor doing it on my own
Tonight, putting my heartbreak on hold (heartbreak on
Hold)
Heartbreak on hold

How you're moving it
Sets me free
Dance away all of my memories
Not gonna let this pain take over me
Tomorrow's gonna be a new day

I can't stay

I'm going out tonight
I'm dancing all alone (heartbreak on hold)
Close my eyes
It's time to let it go (heartbreak on hold)
I'm gonna take it to the dance floor doing it on my own
Tonight, putting my heartbreak on hold (heartbreak on
Hold)
Heartbreak on hold
Ooh
(Heartbreak on hold)
Close my eyes
(Heartbreak on hold)
I'm gonna take it to the dance floor doing it on my own




Tonight, putting my heartbreak on hold (heartbreak on
Hold)
