Break Your Heart Lyrics - Barenaked Ladies

Review The Song (3)



The bravest thing I've ever done
Was to run away and hide
But not this time, not this time
And the weakest thing I've ever done
Was to stay right by your side
Just like this time, and every time
I couldn't tell you I was happy when you were gone
So I lied and said that I missed you when we were apart
I couldn't tell you, so I had to lead you on
But I didn't mean to break your heart

And if I always seem distracted
Like my minds somewhere else
That's because it's true, yes it's true
it's this stupid pride that makes me feel
Like I have to follow through
Even half-assedly, loving you
sponsored links
Why must I always speak in terms of cowardice?
When I guess I should have just come out and told you right from the start
Why must I always tell you all I want is this?
I guess 'cause I didn't want to break your heart

And you said
What'd you think that I was gonna do,
Curl up and die just because of you?
I'm not that weak, you know
What'd you think that I was gonna do,
Try to make you love me as much as I love you?
How could you be so low?
You arrogant man,
What do you think that I am?
My heart will be fine
Just stop wasting my time

And now I know that you wil be OK,
and that I've got what I want,
and that's rid of you
Bye
And it's not 'cause I'll be missing you
That makes me fall apart
It's just that I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break
No I didn't mean to break
Your heart

BNL are underappreciated | Reviewer: Ivy | 10/19/10

BNL, for a band who is easy to dismiss as lightweight because they so often employ humor and are pop and accessable, writes some of the most REAL and complex lyrics about relationships.
This song, and Call and Answer, never fail to blow me away with their honesty and conflicting emotions.



Irony | Reviewer: Maya | 7/11/08

this is a fantastic song but I think what people fail to see in it is its irony. If you read the last few lines in the last verse, you'll see that the "heart breaker" ends up being the miserable one who can't seem to deal with the demise of the relationship that he wanted over in the first place. IN addition, his girl, is totally ok with the relationship ending. Along with the style in which BNL sings this song, that's what makes the song so brilliant.



One of the Greatest Break-up Songs Ever | Reviewer: Billy | 11/18/07

This song is nothing short of amazing. If you've ever been in a relationship that you've wanted out of, but stayed because you didn't want to hurt them, you will be able to relate. This song is beautiful.
