Do you memorize theatrical lines
That seem to lead them in
Play the role with a good girl heart
Hide the tangled webs within

Who was it that led you on
And makes you want to hurt me so
Who do you want to forget
Who forgot you long ago

Do you still feel him
Calling in the air tonight
Do you still feel it
Seems like you've done this before

You make breaking hearts look so easy
Seems like you've done this before
You’ve got breaking hearts all but down
Have you done this you’ve done this before

You make stealing hearts look so easy
Where is that girl I adore
You’ve got breaking up all but down
And I can’t love a thief anymore

Do you collect the souls you’ve lost
In the top of your dresser drawer
Count the number of tears displaced
On lonely bedroom floors

A machine where your heart once was
Slowly takes the place of you
Only hold the memories now
Of a love I thought I knew

Do you still feel him
Calling in the air tonight
Do you still feel it
Seems like you've done this before

You make breaking hearts look so easy
Seems like you've done this before
You’ve got breaking hearts all but down
Have you done this you’ve done this before

You make stealing hearts look so easy
Where is that girl I adore
You’ve got breaking up all but down
And I can’t love a thief anymore

You make breaking hearts look so easy
You’ve got breaking hearts all but down

You make breaking hearts look so easy
Seems like you've done this before
You’ve got breaking hearts all but down
Have you done this you’ve done this before

The best you could hope to be is
Now just a bitter sweet memory and
You make breaking hearts look so easy

    This song is pretty much amazing. I feel such a connection to the girl, because it seems to me that she has been hurt so many times and suddenly she doesn't care anymore and continues to hurt other people, and there's this guy that he adores, but he can't do anything to help her, because it hurts too much.
    I relate to the girl because I've been hurt before to the point where I feel like I'm hurting others, and that's not right. So this song is an accountability and a confrontation that I shouldn't be so mean to my guy friends :)
