You're everything I thought you never were
Ain't nothing like a thought could have been
Still, you live inside of me
So tell me how is that

You're the only one I wish I could forget
The only one I love to not forgive
And though you break my heart
You're the only one

And though there are times when I hate you
'Cause I can't erase
The times that you hurt me
And put tears on my face
And even now while I hate you
It pains me to say
I know I'll be there
At the end of the day

I don't wanna be without you babe
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without you babe
I don't wanna play that part
I know that I love you
But let me just say
I don't wanna love you
In no kind of way, no no
I don't want a broken heart
I don't wanna play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl

Something that I feel I need to say
But untill now I've always been afraid
That you would never come around
And still I wanna put this out

You say you got the most respect for me but
Sometimes I feel you're not deserved of me
And still you're in my heart
But you're the only one

And yes, there are times when I hate you
But I don't complain
'Cause I've been afraid that
You would walk away

Oh but now I don't hate you
I'm happy to say
That I will be there
At the end of the day

I don't wanna be without you babe
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without you babe
I don't wanna play that part
I know that I love you
But let me just say
I don't wanna love you
In no kind of way, no no
I don't want a broken heart
I don't wanna play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl

Now I met a place I thought I'd never be, oh
I'm living in a world whereas all about you and me, yeah
And I won't be afraid, my broken heart as free
To spread my wings and fly away, away with you

I don't wanna be without my baby
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without my babe
Don't wanna take a breath without my babe

    i love this song and i just can;t stop listening to it now. i never used to listen to it before but as you keep on listening to it, it just becomes beautiful. i didn't know that it could be as cool as it is. and i just love it so much. it really is very soothing and when i am upset i try not to listen to it because it will make me feel even more upset. i know it's something that i should not say but that is actually how i feel when i listen to this song. i really like it and it is one of my favorites in her new album and i think that it is one of the coolest she has ever sang or maybe even written. i don't know because i dont know if she wrote it or if she just sang it and someone else wrote it for her.

    This song reminds me of my cousin. She has been dating this guy for several years and yet she just can't find happiness. She loves him so much, but at the same time she knows he doesn't deserve her and she should leave him, but she can't.

    No matter how hard she tries she knows she will be there for him at the end of the day. He's everything she thought he never was, and nothing she thought he'd ever be. She hates that she loves him, but is afraid of being alone and refuses to play the broken hearted girl.

    So she puts a smile on her face and acts like nothing is wrong. She's torn. She wants to leave but loves him too much. She's stuck in a battle with herself, but won't let anyone see it! That is what i think about when I hear this song.

    A girl who knows he isn't good enough for her and wishes she could leave him, but no matter how hard she tries, she can't. She loves him too much and refuses to be the broken hearted girl.
