  • Lyrics: Stop Breaking Your Own Heart V1: You’d cried off your make-up, when the dawn lit you face. Stained your lonely pillow, lying there wide awake. Ch: Now nothing else matters, and you’re back to the start. Still you’ll go running back to him. Stop breaking your own heart. V2: You doubt your own feelings—don’t know your own mind. Don’t even know what you want—just what you haven’t found. Ch2: And nothing else matters, again you’re pulled apart. Time to turn it around now. And stop breaking your own heart. Br: Through your whole life you’ve been drifting—not even in charge of it. Used and discarded, then lied to and scarred inside. Ch3 You gave your heart to him once, and he threw it aside. Still you go running back to him Breaking your own heart. Ch4: Now you know what matters, no going back to the start. There’s a silence in heaven. Stop breaking your own heart. Stop breaking your own heart. (x4) All music & lyrics by John Connor (messyheads)

Brilliantly catchy chorus sections that will have you singing along after the second time around - and you won’t get sick of it for a very long time I suspect.
