Had a feeling I was feeling all right
It just happened to be saturday night
I put my lipstick on a little too bright
Then I took a deep breath and started to drive

They let me in without a cover charge
I found my way to the back of the bar
I peeled the corners off a cocktail napkin
Watching everybody smiling laughing

I just bought a drink
Downtown all alone
Searching through the names
Getting lost in my cell phone

It ain't pretty
It ain't pretty
When a heart breaks

Made my way to the bathroom mirror
Standing next to some girl spilling beer
She didn't notice I was drying my tears
Just look at me now how did I get here

I just kissed a boy and I barely even know his name
I let him take me by the hand
Hold me close while our old song played

It ain't pretty
It ain't pretty
When a heart breaks

I almost dialed your number
To remind you what you did
But I think it might be better
To let this night end

I just called a cab
Outside its starting to rain
I got my heals in my hand
Oh I'm ready for the walk of shame

It ain't pretty
It ain't pretty, no
It ain't pretty
When a heart breaks

It ain't pretty
When a heart breaks
