  • You know that I would follow you
    To the end of the Earth
    And maybe I was kinda bold
    You shouldn't know my words

    I was waiting for the time to remind you
    You were in love
    What I gave was so incredible
    But it was never enough

    You took my love
    And broke my heart
    You took my smile
    And tore it apart
    You left me crying
    Down on the floor
    The funny thing is
    I still want more
    If only you love me like I wanted you to
    But you trick me into loving you
    You tore me apart
    You broke my heart

    You charm me with your little ways
    You knew the buttons of praise
    And you said I was your everything
    But boy you couldn't care less
    And you said we'd be together forever
    Now look what you've done

    What I gave was so incredible
    But it was never enough

    You took my love
    And broke my heart
    You took my smile
    And tore it apart
    You left me crying
    Down on the floor
    The funny thing is
    I still want more
    If only you love me like I wanted you to
    But you trick me into loving you
    You tore me apart
    You broke my heart

    All that I needed
    Was someone to hold me
    And all that I wanted
    Was someone to show me
    Just what it is to be loved
    And I hoped that someone was you

    Ooh

    You took my love
    And broke my heart
    You took my smile
    And tore it apart
    You left me crying
    Down on the floor
    The funny thing is
    I still want more
    If only you love me like I wanted you to
    But you trick me into loving you
    You broke my heart
    You broke my heart
    You tore me apart
    You broke my heart
