  • She reminds me of the one in school
    When I was cuttin'
    She was dressed in white
    And I couldn't take my eyes off her
    But that's not what I took off that night

    She'll never cover up what we did with her dress, no
    She said kiss me
    It'll heal
    But it won't forget
    Kiss me
    It'll heal
    But it won't forget

    And I don't mind you keepin' me
    On pins and needles
    If I could stick to you
    And you stick me too

    Don't break
    Don't break my heart
    And I won't break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high

    Don't break
    Don't break my heart
    And I won't break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low

    She reminds me of a one I knew
    That cut up the negatives of my life
    I couldn't take my hands off her
    She wouldn't let me be anywhere but inside

    And I don't mind you keepin' me
    On pins and needles
    If I could stick to you
    And you stick me too

    Just don't break
    Don't break my heart
    And I won't break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high

    Don't break
    Don't break my heart
    And I won't break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low

    She'll never cover up what we did with her dress, no
    She said kiss me
    It'll heal
    But it won't forget
    Kiss me
    It'll heal
    But it won't forget

    I don't mind you keepin' me
    On pins and needles
    If I could stick to you
    And you stick me too

    Don't break
    Don't break my heart
    And I won't break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high

    Don't break
    Don't break my heart
    And I won't break your heart-shaped glasses
    Little girl, little girl
    You should close your eyes
    That blue is getting me high
    And making me low Writer/s: BRIAN WARNER, TIM SKOLD

  • Dan Gillespy from Courtenay BcIt kind of has a new wave influence in the song.
  • NabokovClearyl a refrence to the highly controversial novel "Lolita" by "Vladimir Nabokov" were an adult man has an affair with an underaged girl.
  • John Doe from CaliI bet Brian regrets writing this song now (along with Evidence and literally any other love song he wrote about Evan Rachel Wood)
  • Michael S from Elkridge, MdThink simple, know the line "you wouldn't hit a ___ with glasses would ya?" Well...

    "Don't break my heart and I won't break your heart shaped glasses !" But that's not meant as a power-trip tough guy sort of way, breaking his heart would cause an anrgry loss of control in a psychological breakdown kind of way.

    Need help believing something like that would be implied, watch the 'Running to the Edge of the Earth' video near the end.
  • Lisa from Toronto, OnThis is a song loosely based on the film version of Nabokov's Lolita.
    On the movie poster it has Lolita wearing heart shaped glasses, and I think she's wearing them the first time Humbert sees her. It represents youth and innocence that becomes tainted with lust.
  • Amanda from Dahlonega, GaI read in a magazine article by Evan Rachel Wood that it refers to the first time he saw her she was actually wearing heart shaped glasses
  • Lin Lin from Pinson, AlI thinck the glasses refer to how some one can be blinded by love and not see things the way they really are. it was written for evan- who has alraedy broke his heart and resulted in the High End of Low album-who just saw a man who she thought was different so she dated him to be a rebel- but i think he's a little more complicated then that.
  • Jo from Chester, United KingdomThis song is his promise to evan. She declared her love for him, but she was soo young he didnt belive it to be true and so he said that as long as she didnt break his heart then he wouldnt break her heart shaped glasses. He has v big security isssues, and hates becoming close to peopleas he think they will always leave him, this make it hard for him to accpet her love.
  • Charles Dodgson from Los Angeles, CaThis song is mainly about how Evan made Manson feel as he compares her to his past girlfriends. There was a girl in school with Manson and it was during his self-harming phase. He bled on her dress and she demanded a recompense of one kiss. In the second verse Manson compares Evan to "the one who cut up the negatives of my life". By this he is referring to ex-girlfriend Rose McGowan, who cut up his photos i.e. the negatives of his life.
  • Maria Isabel from New London, Cterik from brownwood, TX: He took her virginity. That's what that means.
  • Maria Isabel from New London, CtLast I heard, the term "heart-shaped glasses" refers to how when you first meet someone, they seem perfect, because you haven't seen their ugly side yet. I think when Manson says, "Don't break my heart, and I won't break your heart-shaped glasses" he's trying to tell the girl that he'll remain perfect for her as long as she loves him.
  • Jezus from Mobile, Althis song is way too emo to be considered marilyn manson
  • Kalevi from Helsinki, FinlandEveryone who thinks this song is anything original should check out Let's go to Bed by The Cure first. And that's the case with most of
    Mansonitis I hear.
  • Luke from San Dimas, CaI think this song somewhat revolves around the 1950's novel Lolita written buy that haggard looking Russian guy who was pimping everyone hardcore in the seventies. Seriously. What a badass.
  • Erik from Brownwood , Txheart shaped glasses is the best manson song ever written and it does make sense but what did they do with her dress??lol
