I took my chances
Thinking something might be saved
Growing tired of broken promises
And dreams you never made
And I wanted to be more than just a friend
Not knowing I would hurt so in the end
So I swore I'd never call you home again
Took time to see through all the glitter
That you made
I was blinded by your fire light
And swept myself away
And I guess I couldn't bring myself to see
You had taken all the very best of me
So I'm leaving while there's something left of me
Just like a child, I keep running back for more
You know I thought I knew the answers
'Cause I've been hurt before
And one more time around won't break me
You will never see that side of me
No, no, no, no,
I don't break easily
I told my service to pick up all my calls
And I've taken down our photographs
That lined our bedroom walls
And the outside door no longer has your name
All your clothes are gone
My welcome mat's been changed
But the key's still there
And I've left the door unchained
Just like a child, I keep running back for more
Oh, I thought I knew all the answers
I've been hurt before
And just one more time around
Won't break me down
You will never see that side of me
No, no, no,
I don't break easily
No, no... I won't break easily...
