Carly Simon – Born To Break My Heart lyrics

(Carly Simon)

You were born to break
You were born to break
You were born to break my heart

The same kitchen, the same eyes
The same reaction to the same lies
It was not so long ago,
A most auspicious start
And only now I know
You were born to break my heart
Born to break my heart...

'Guilt Trip, 'i can hear you say
Get a grip girl, you've lost your way
You don't begin to understand
I guess it's time we part
And don; t be usin? That old cliche:
You were born to break my heart?
You were born to break my heart?

No wonder we looked like the perfect couple
It was brilliantly conceived
It seems I have a yen to lose
And you can't pass up the perfect
Chance to leave

The same plot, the same rain
Just as stubborn as a fool
You'd think I might get smart
But here I am, cursed, to seek love again
>From yet another cold heart

You were born to break my heart,
Born to break my heart
