When I saw you today I just turned away,
Don't wanna see you, don't wanna see you so soon.
'cause I've tried to pretend, that we were never more than friends.
An' I've been tryin' to keep from cryin', and I've been:

Walkin' on pins and needles,
Ever since you left me, darlin'.
I feel the jagged edge of a broken heart.
Walkin' on pins and needles,
Never gonna hold you, darlin'.
I feel the jagged edge of a broken heart.

So now I'm on my own learnin' how to live alone.
And every night's another shade of blue.
Even now, I see your eyes smilin' as you told your lies.
It's no use tryin', I can't stop cryin': I'm bound to without you.

Walkin' on pins and needles,
Ever since you left me, darlin'.
I feel the jagged edge of a broken heart.

Instrumental break.

Now I'm afraid to walk in places,
Seein' those familiar faces.
Knowin' you could be there with them:
So afraid that you'd see that I've been,

Walkin' on pins and needles, (walkin' on pins and needles.)
Ever since you left me, darlin'. (ever since you left me.)
I feel the jagged edge of a broken heart.
Oh, walkin' on pins and needles, (walkin' on pins and needles.)
Never gonna hold you, darlin'. (never gonna hold you.)
I feel the jagged edge of a broken heart.

To fade.
