Maybe it's the things I say
Maybe I should think before I speak
But I thought that I knew enough
To know myself and do what's right for me

And these walls I'm building now
You used to bring 'em down
And these tears I'm cyin' out
You used to wipe away

I thought you said it was easy
Listening to your heart
I thought you said I'd be okay
So why am I breakin' apart?

Don't wanna be torn(x5)

Don't make me have to choose between
What I want and what you think I need
Cause I'll always be your little girl
But even little girls have got to dream

Now it all feels like a fight
You were always on my side
And the lonely I feel now
You used to make it go way

I thought you said it was easy
Listening to your heart
I thought you said I'd be okay
So why am I breakin' apart?

Don't wanna be torn (x5)

Why is all this so confusing,
Complicated and consuming?
Why does all this make me angry?
I wanna go back to being happy

The tears I'm cryin now
You used to wipe away
And these walls I'm building now
You used to bring 'em down

I thought you said it was easy (hold for 10 seconds)
Listening to your heart (listening to your heart)
I thought you said I'd be okay
So why am I breaking apart?

Don't wanna be torn! (x10)
