Break My Heart
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Baby, you'll come knocking on my front door
Same old line you used to use before
I said yeah, well what am supposed to do?
I didn't know what I was getting into

So you've had a little trouble in town
So you're keeping some demons down
Stop draggin' my, stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my heart around

And jt's hard to think
About what you've wanted
It's hard to think about what you've lost
Oo this doesn't have to be the big get even
This doesn't have to be anything at all

I know you really wanna tell me goodbye
I know you really wanna be your own girl

Baby, you could never look me in the eye
Yeah, you buckle with the weight of the words
Stop draggin' my, stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my heart around oh yeah yeah

Well there's people running 'round
Loose in the world
Ain't got nothing better to do
Oo they make a meal of some bright-eyed kid
Oo you need someone looking after you

I know you really wanna tell me goodbye
I know you really wanna be your own girl

Baby, you could never look me in the eye
Yeah, you buckle with the weight of the words
Stop draggin' my, stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my heart around oh yeah yeah

Stop draggin' my heart around
Stop draggin' my heart around




Stop draggin' my heart around
Stop draggin' my heart around
