Lyrics
Heart don't beat so hard this time
Let her go, you know it's done without a doubt
Don't fall back into that same 'I'm all alone' and sit an' pine
She's just another thing we could learn to live without

We were caught up in that fiery passion of the moment
Hopin that love was here to stay
It looked like true romance well worth takin' a chance
Ah but then that love just slowly slipped away

I let her changin' heart, and her dissatisfaction
Manifest itself in my confusion
I was tryin' to make some sense of that volatile attraction
When her haughty disposition made m lose my way

I must admit I spent a fine short moment
Fightin' to take control not willin' to take the chance
I thought I couldn't let go
Sentimental fool you know
A casualty of big romance

Heart don't try so hard this time
There's another lover waitin' around another paradigm
These tears we cry are just a waste of water don't you know
You've got to learn to see when something's finally gone
And just let it go

It seem like every time you found the real thing
First thing you know you pickin' yourself up off the floor
Seems like you just get started
Then your first degreee down-hearted
The next thing you hear is the slammin' of the door

Don't try so hard this time
There's another lover waitin' around another paradigm
These tears we cry are just a waste of water don't you know
You've got to learn to see when something's finally...
Say goodbye and keep on walkin'
Don't try so hard this time
There's another lover waitin' around another paradigm
These tears we cry are just a waste of water don't you know
You've got to learn to see when something's finally gone
And just let it go
