I wanna be around, to pick up the pieces
When somebody breaks your heart
When somebody twice as smart, as I

Oh somebody who, will swear to be true
As you used to do with me
Who'll leave you to learn
That misery loves company, wait and see

I said I wanna be around
To see how he does it when he breaks your heart to bits
Let's see if the puzzle fits, so fine

That's when I'll discover, revenge is sweet
As I sit here applaudin' from a front row seat
When somebody breaks your heart like you broke mine

That's when I'll discover, revenge is sweet
As I sit here applaudin' from a front row seat
When somebody breaks your heart like you broke mine
