lyrics

V E R S E 1
It seems so easy now, my son
To walk away and not look back
She’s gone and soon forgotten
Now, you’re on a whole new track
Young love, well, it’s fun at first
Till the drama of it all
Finally gets too much for you.
So why return her call?

P R E - C H O R U S 1
Well, there’s a price to pay
For the way you choose to walk away

C H O R U S 1
You break a heart, you own it
Love plays a funny trick
You break a heart, you own it
Some little part will stick
The way you weazled out on her
Will never leave your mind
You’re callous and you’ve shown it
You break a heart, you own it
You break it, you own it

V E R S E 2
It seems so simple now, my boy
To catch the eye of someone new.
A girl without the problems
That the first one put you through.
But with a couple hung-up calls
And bitter looks and slamming doors
It slowly comes to dawn on you
The problems might be yours

P R E - C H O R U S 2
When all is said and done
The first one might have been the one.

C H O R U S 2
You break a heart, you own it
That’s what your leaving bought
You break a heart, you own it
And there’s that nagging thought
It’s everyone you’ll ever meet
’Gainst the one you left behind
You’ll wonder if you’ve blown it
You break a heart, you own it
You break it, you own it





B R I D G E
I know you might not hear me now
But what I say is true
You learned to turn your back
From how I left your mom and you
And if you get this
Know that my regretting never sleeps
Leaving is losing
And losing is for keeps

C H O R U S 3
You break a heart, you own it
A child or a wife
You break a heart, you own it
Till it’s a way of life
And once it’s second nature, boy
Real love’s too hard to find
I only wish I’d known it
You break a heart, you own it
You break it, you own it
You break it, you own it
