Everynight, I would lie awake
Alone in my bed
Think of you, then I'd cry myself
To sleep, that's what you said
You were so sure of yourself
By now I'd be out of my mind
So where is the madness
The pain and the sadness
You swore you'd be leavin' behind

CHORUS:
Start breaking my heart
Start bringin' me down
Start breaking my heart
Like you said you'd do to me
Start breaking my heart
Tearin' me apart, breaking my heart
Start breaking my heart


Lookin' back, you were good at diggin'
Into my soul
All the time, oh I should've understood
You just needed control
Finally you realized, how much you were
Foolin' yourself
Ya thought you'd desert me
Thought you could hurt me
By leavin' me for somebody else


CHORUS:


You're breaking your promise to me
You swore I'd be fallin' apart


CHORUS:


You've been gone girl, I don't even
Know how long
Come on and prove me wrong
You can start by breaking my heart
Breaking my heart, breaking my heart
