The first time around you broke my heart.
I cried myself to sleep,
And couldn’t get you out of my head.
No matter how hard I tried,
I couldn’t keep a smile on my face.
The second time around I was cautious,
But the moment I looked into your hazel eyes
I feel all over again.
It resulted in heartbreak.
The third time around,
I was convinced we were really over,
Until you told me this time it would be different.
I fell once more, then you claimed you found something better.
This time my heart didn’t break,
It wasn’t able to any more.
It was already in a million pieces.
The fourth time was different.
I made you need me,
I made a shield around my heart.
This time I wasn’t out for love.
I was out for revenge.
This time you’d be the one crying.
This time you’d be the one missing me!
