(But The Problem Is, This Time It's Mine)

So many times I've seen
So many people's dreams
Lost and washed away
Out to the sea, yeah

I said "No, not I"
Pain would surely pass me by
Happening to them, but not to me, yeah

Hearts get broken all the time
Never used to worry about things like this
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
Now I'm worrying (This one is mine)
See the problem is the heart is mine

Love would be all I'd need
How naive could I be
Trusting other people with my care, yeah

Never thought I'd have to be
One of love's casualties
Up until now my belief was that love was fair

Hearts get broken all the time
But I never worried 'bout things like this
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
I keep worrying (This one is mine)
See the problem is the heart is mine

This time my heart's breaking
This time my love's failing
I'm trying hard not to be bitter now

I never dreamed that the broken heart would be mine

Hearts get broken all the time
You think it's love, but it never really is
Never could imagine a thing like that (I wouldn't worry)
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
Got me worrying (This one is mine)
See the problem is the heart is mine
This is mine, this is mine, yeah

Hearts get broken all the time
Never cared a doggone thing about that (I didn't worry)
But the trouble is (This time it's mine)
And the problem really is (This one is mine)
See the whole thing is the heart is mine

This time it's mine
This one is mine
The heart is mine

This time it's mine
This one is mine
The heart is mine

This time it's mine
This one is mine
The heart is mine
