  • You're everything I thought you never were
    And nothing like I thought you could've been
    But still you live inside of me
    So tell me, how is that?

    You're the only one I wish I could forget
    The only one I love to not forgive
    And though you break my heart
    You're the only one

    And though there are times when I hate you 'cause I can't erase
    The times that you hurt me and put tears on my face
    And even now while I hate you, it pains me to say
    I know I'll be there at the end of the day

    I don't wanna be without you, babe
    I don't want a broken heart
    Don't wanna take a breath without you, babe
    I don't want to play that part
    I know that I love you, but let me just say
    I don't wanna love you in no kind of way, no, no

    I don't want a broken heart
    And I don't want to play the broken-hearted girl
    No, no, no broken-hearted girl
    I'm no broken-hearted girl

    There's something that I feel I need to say
    But up till now I've always been afraid
    That you would never come around
    And still I wanna put this out

    You say you got the most respect for me
    But sometimes I feel your not deserving of me
    And still you're in my heart
    But you're the only one

    And, yes, there are times when I hate you, but I don't complain
    'Cause I've been afraid that you would walk away
    Oh, but now I don't hate you; I'm happy to say
    That I will be there at the end of the day

    I don't wanna be without you, baby
    I don't want a broken heart
    Don't wanna take a breath without you, baby
    I don't want to play that part
    I know that I love you, but let me just say
    I don't wanna love you in no kind of way, no, no

    I don't want a broken heart
    And I don't want to play the broken-hearted girl
    No, no, no broken-hearted girl

    Now I'm at a place I thought I'd never be, ooo
    I'm living in a world that's all about you and me, yeah
    Ain't got to be afraid; my broken heart is free
    To spread my wings and fly away, away with you
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    I don't wanna be without you, baby
    I don't want a broken heart
    Don't wanna take a breath without you, baby
    I don't want to play that part
    I know that I love you, but let me just say
    I don't wanna love you in no kind of way, no, no

    I don't want a broken heart
    I don't want to play the broken-hearted girl
    No, no, no broken-hearted girl
    Broken-hearted girl, no, no
    No broken-hearted girl
    No broken-hearted girl
