Breakin' At The Cracks

Album: Breakthrough (2009)
  • I think you took my heart away, when you said you're leaving
    Cos right now I am hurting, all over again
    And I never thought that I'd be in this place its a mistake
    And now I don't know how much more that I can take

    I'm breaking at the cracks
    And everything goes black
    It's another heart attack
    And I can't handle that
    Woo love I need you back

    I know that I'll get through this
    I'm feeling is stronger somehow
    I got my feet back on the ground
    And I'm turning around
    And I'll be everything you always said that I could be
    If only you'll be waiting right here for me patiently

    I'm breaking at the cracks
    And everything goes black
    It's another heart attack
    And I can't handle that
    Woo love I need you back

    Oh whenever would I take you back,
    My heart was filled with love
    Then I wipe these tears and I will laugh
    If only I could make it last, make it last

    Breaking at the cracks
    And everything goes black
    It's another heart attack
    And I can't handle that
    Woo love I need you back
    I need you back
    I need you back
    I need you back
    I need you back
    I need you back
    I need you back
    I need you back
    Love I need you back
    Love I need you back
    I need you back
    I need you back Writer/s: COLBIE CAILLAT, JASON REEVES

  • Linda from Oakland, CaWhat a gorgeous song. Colbie sounds so appropriately sad. Great to read about the background of the song here before I heard it.
