Heartbreaker you were

you were everything I dreamed 

you were everything I wanted 

everything I'd need 

and heartbreaker I had 

never been so sure 

even when you left me in the cold and my heart on the floor

 

Cause I thought I wasn't good enough for you 

so I let you go with any old excuse 

cause you knew 

 

where you go I would follow 

I'd be what you need 

and I'd run to your side 

cause I always believed 

your love was the life and the breath that I need 

but trying to love you was killing me

 

And I was just a girl I was only seventeen 

and the light I saw in you was one I had never seen

so I believed each word you said 

and every promise that you made 

and I'd put too much in you to let it go to waste 

 

Cause I thought I wasn't good enough for you 

so I let you go with any old excuse 

cause you knew 

 

where you go I would follow 

I'd be what you need 

and I'd run to your side 

cause I always believed 

your love was the life and the breath that I need 

but trying to love you was killing me

 

And all this time I tried not to see 

I was chasing after someone I could never reach 

and you knew

 

where you go I would follow 

I'd be what you need 

and I'd run to your side 

cause I always believed 

your love was the life and the breath that I need 

but trying to love you was killing me
