You always find the way to hurt my pride
If I'm not crying you're not satisfied
And I don't know why you want to hurt me so
If you're tryin' to break my heart
You don't have very far to go
You don't have very far to go
Before the heartache begins
I already feel the sadness
Of a heartbreak settin' in
I don't know why you want to hurt me so
If you're tryin' to break my heart
You don't have very far to go

You don't have very far to go
Before the heartache begins
I already feel the sadness
Of a heartbreak settin' in
You're turnin' down
The flame of love too low
And if you're tryin' to break my heart
You don't have very far to go
