  • Every now and then I cry
    Every night you keep stayin' on my mind
    All my friends say I'll survive
    It just takes time

    But I don't think time is gonna heal this broken heart
    No I don't see how it can if it's broken all apart
    A million miracles could never stop the pain
    Or put all the pieces together again
    No I don't think time is gonna heal this broken heart
    No I don't see how it can while we are still apart
    And when you hear this song
    I hope that you will see
    That time won't heal a broken-hearted me

    Every day is just the same
    Playin' games, different lovers, different names
    They keep sayin' I'll survive
    It just takes time

    But I don't think time is gonna heal this broken heart
    No I don't see how it can if it's broken all apart
    A million miracles could never stop the pain
    Or put all the pieces together again
    No I don't think time is gonna heal this broken heart
    No I don't see how it can while we are still apart
    And when you hear this song
    I hope that you will see
    That time won't heal a broken-hearted me
