Break Your Heart
Barenaked Ladies Lyrics


The bravest thing I've ever done
Was to run away and hide
But not this time, not this time
And the weakest thing I've ever done
Was to stay right by your side
Just like this time, and every time

I couldn't tell you I was happy you were gone
So I lied and said that I missed you when we were apart
I couldn't tell you, so I had to lead you on
But I didn't mean to break your heart

And if I always seem distracted
Like my mind is somewhere else
That's because it's true, yes it's true
It's this stupid pride that makes me feel
Like I have to follow through
Even half-assedly, loving you

Why must I always speak in terms of cowardice?
When I guess I should have just come out and told you right from the start
Oh, why must I always tell you all I want is this?
I guess 'cause I didn't want to break your heart

And you said
What'd you think that I was gonna do
Curl up and die just because of you?
I'm not that weak, you know
What'd you think that I was gonna do
Try to make you love me as much as I love you?
How could you be so low?

You arrogant man
What do you think that I am?
My heart will be fine
Just stop wasting my time

And now I'm over you, I'll be okay
And that I've got what I want
And that's rid of you
Bye
And it's not 'cause I'll be missing you
That makes me fall apart
It's just that I didn't mean to break
No, I didn't mean to break
No, I didn't mean to break
Your heart
Your heart (ooh-ooh)

Good bye
And it's not cause I'll be missing you
That makes me fall apart
It's just that I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break

This album is excellent! I absolutely love it! I've been listening to it since I was a teen, I'm 31 now. My father would play this album through anytime the stereo was turned on. I miss my Daddy. My kids know every song on this album. 100% Gold.
