Silly me, look what I did again.
I found what I want is what I cannot have
I didn't mean to be so predictable,
But I blame it all on who made you irresistible

And it isn't something I need 'til you tell me I can't
Why wear my heart on my sleeve when it looks so good in your hand.

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow.
Oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go.

Little girl, I don't know why you stay.
If I had a feather for every time daddy said that I could fly away.
Old habits are so hard to break
It'd be a shame to stop now that I've started to make really good mistakes.

And I don't know why I must ask for the forbidden fruit.
I saw the snake in the grass, but I had bitten too soon.

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow.
Oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go.

I should have seen you coming in
Should recognize the signs a wave's gonna break
Now, I've given in, why fight it when
I'm resigned to simply live in your wake.
Your wake

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow.
Oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go.
