How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
And teach itself to start beating again


This little bluebird
Came looking for you
I said that I hadn't seen you
In quite some time!

This
little Bluebird
She came looking again
I said we weren't even friends
She could have you

Don't you think it was hard,
I didn't even say that you died
But it wouldn't have been such a lie
'Cause then I started to cry

This little bluebird
Sure won't give it a rest
She swears that you may be
Better than all the rest

I said no no no
You've got it all wrong
If he was something special
I wouldn't have this song


Don't you think it was hard,
I didn't even say that you died
But it wouldn't have been such a lie
'Cause then I started to cry

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start beating again


What if when she comes over
I am in your arms
Taking all I want from you again
Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start beating again

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start beating again
Beating again

This little bluebird
Don't come 'round here anymore
So I went looking for her
And I found you
