You don't believe that I love you and
Even if that was true why just to keep our unhappy home
I'm gonna try to pretend that I do but

I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down

My baby she left me
Said she ain't comin' back around
I'm breakin' down

And if I thought that it was okay for a grown man to cry
I would have filled up the whole mighty ocean when she said goodbye and

I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down

You know my baby she left me
Said she ain't comin' back around
I'm breakin' down

One day you said everything was just right
I don't see how it changed overnight
One day you said everything was so strong
The next day you turn to me and say
It's been wrong all along

Oh and now you won't even look at me
You pass me by in the street and
You won't even speak
I never meant to cause you any harm
How could two people start so close and end up so far

I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down
