Barry Manilow – Anyone Can Do The Heartbreak lyrics

Take another step
Tell another lie
Hide another tear
In the corner of your eye
I don't understand
What kind of game is this we're playing
Dancin' in the dark
Shadow's in the night
Slowly going wrong
Trying to make it right
The silence is so loud
I can't hear the words we're saying
Anyone can do the heartbreak
Everybody knows the dance
Oh it's so easy to do
You tear a dream in two
To kill a true romance
Anyone can do the heartbreak
Anyone can make love end
It's gonna take a little pain
Some fire and some rain
To bring it back again
I know you're afraid
Baby so am I
You think you're going to fall
All you want to do is fly
We're up against the wall
And love is the chance we're taking
So baby look into my heart
Tell me can't you see
I belong with you
You belong with me
When I hold you in my arms
We can hear the music playing
Repeat chorus
And it's one step forward
And two steps back
Well we keep on moving
But we're only losing ground
We've got to turn this love around
Repeat chorus 2X
(fade out)
