Tell me your thoughts now baby
Tell me what's on your mind
Tell me what's eating you alive
Tell me your darkest secrets
Clear up those stupid lies
Show me what's there behind those eyes

I want to know 'cause i can't face another day here in the dark
I'm tired of owndering when we're together baby where you are
Why should i give you everything
When you will only break my heart
You will only break my heart
You will only break my heart

Tell me your thoughts now baby
Tell me what's on your mind
Tell me what's eating you alive
Tell me your latest story
What will it be this time
Show me what's there behind those eyes

I want to know why you can't find a way to just let down you guard
I don't believe that love or what we had should ever be this hard
Why should i give you everything
When you will only break my heart
You will only break my heart
You will only break my heart

All this is too familiar
I think we've been here before
I wish i could believe you
i see you down on your knees

You will only break my heart
You will only break my heart
You will only break my heart

    She's basically talking about how she can't and won't give the boy who broke her heart before, another chance because all he would do is break her heart [again].

    Very nice song, very catchy :]
