She says "Baby, I know you love me,
And I need you too, but this'll never do!"
He says "Darling, girl I don’t understand,
I just wanted to be your man,
To love you and hold your hand.."

Boy, you know the score -
I gotta get up, right out this door
Can no longer bear to
Take this pressure no more!

Please, please, please,
Please don’t leave me...
Don’t leave me cold and alone
I’ll never survive if you’re gone

I’m screaming out oh,
Oh no!
No no, no no no

Oh, baby please don’t cry…
Just dry your eyes
I wanna see you smile one last time,
For the last time...

Please don’t tell me it’s too late,
Baby we’ve both made mistakes!
This pain,
It won’t go away!
No way...
(It won’t go away no)

Oh, she left me
She left me yeah
And this house aint no home,
She's gone...

What am I gon’ say about it?
What am I gon’ do about it?
It hurts me ‘cos she’s so damn cool about it
Now I’m left with a broken heart,
Should've treated her right from the start…
I should have been better,
A better man
Why’d it take me so long to understand?
Just how much she means to me
It’s only now I see...

I was the fool who kept his love on lockdown!
Where is she now...
You won't know what you've got till it’s gone
So get to know

If you find love,
Hold on tight and don’t you let go now...
‘Cos you don’t wanna end up with a broken heart,
You don’t wanna end up torn apart
Don’t take it for granted!
Understand the difference
Between want and need
Or you’ll feel the pain of a broken heart
You’ll be left torn apart
