I can't believe I couldve been so blind,
But love is strange.
I thought about it for a long, long time,
But the truth remains.
I don't need another lonely night to dry my tears.
The answers plain as black and white,
And I can see the picture very clear.

Ive been livin on the edge of a broken heart.
I don't wanna fall, I don't wanna crawl.
Ive been livin on the edge of a broken heart.
Don't you wonder why I gotta say goodbye?

It isn't like you never had the chance
To change your tune.
Did you think that Im a dime a dance?
Well the dance is through.
Ive been doin things your way too long,
But baby that's over.
It wont be easy, but Ive gotta be strong,
And if I wanna cry I don't need your shoulder.

Ive been livin on the edge of a broken heart.
I don't wanna fall, I don't wanna crawl.
Ive been livin on the edge of a broken heart.
Don't you wonder why I gotta say goodbye?

Ill find someone else whos nothing like you.
Two can play the game as well,
And you're gonna be sorry, baby,
When it's over!

[guitar interlude]

Ive been doin things your way too long,
But baby that's over.
It wont be easy but Ive gotta be strong,
And if I wanna cry I don't need your shoulder.

[chorus out]
