John Hiatt – The Way We Make A Broken Heart lyrics

Just a one more kiss he'll have to miss
This night with you
Now you're guilty of this secret love
As I am too
You'll get used to telling lies
And feeling sorry when he cries
Now that the strings are attached
He'll catch on
We've done our part

Oh, this is the way we make a broken heart

Lesson number one we've just begun
To hurt him so
And with lesson two I'll long for you
When lights are low
And we get to lesson three
When he gets down on his knees
And begs me to stop at the door
Just before
He comes apart

This is the way we make a broken heart

Now we laid a trail of tears
For him to follow
And we've thought of every lie
That he might swallow

And with lesson four there'll be no more
For him to bear
And on some dark night we'll dim the lights
On this affair

Then he'll find somebody new
And she'll likely hurt him too
'Cause there must be millions just like you and me
Practiced in the art

This is the way we make a broken heart
This is the way we make a broken heart
