I like the way you wanted me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you needed me
Every time things got rocky

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken do you mean
Do you mean what you say
When you say our love could last forever

But I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

I like the way you'd hold me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you'd sing to me
Every time things got rocky

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken do you say
Do you say what you mean
When you say our love could last forever

Cause I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow

You would run around and lead me on forever
While I stay at home still thinking we're together
I wanted our love to last forever

But I'd rather you be mean than love and lie
I'd rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I'd rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don't you break my heart slow
Baby don't you break my heart slow

    this song means the world to me cause last year i dated this guy and it was awesome we spent everyday together and just had fun and i really did love him i had feelings for him that i dint have for any other boyfriend and he told me the exact same thing and he told me he loved me and said he has never told a girl that so it made me feel really special to him. but the day after he told me he loved me he cheated on me and made me feel like everything he said was a lie i felt like he only said it cause he knew i would believe him. and the line " While I stay at home still thinking we're together " that has alot of emotion to me cause while i thought we were still going out on facebook it said he was dating someone else and thats what hurt the most. i still talk to him and still have the same feelings for him as before and he still tells me he loves me and i still love him but i know that we could never be together again even though i still have feelings for him and him telling me that he always thinks about me and he loves me alot and he will always care about me makes it a whole lot worse cause i can never have him again.

    i totally relate to this song! it tells the guy that if he has plans of hurting her, he should do it in the fastest and most honest way, because there is no greater pain than to be lied and cheated. if the love has gone, better be true to yourself and to your partner rather than hurt her with your lies. it will save you of the headache and the heartache eventually.

    duhhh it means, don't break my heart slow. as in, do it like a bandaid. if you feel that its not working out, dont keep me around, feeling like im doing something wrong. just tell me and let me begin to heal, you can break my heart. its been done before. but dont do it slow :(
