Homewrecker

Album: Electra Heart (2012)
  • Every boyfriend is the one, until otherwise proven
    The good are never easy, the easy never good
    And love, it never happens like you think it really should
    Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
    One will breed love, the other, hate
    You'll find me in the lonely hearts
    Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

    And I don't belong to anyone

    They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
    They call me homewrecker, homewrecker

    Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
    Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
    We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
    As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

    And I don't belong to anyone

    They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
    They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
    They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
    They call me homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I broke a million hearts just for fun)

    I'm only happy when I'm on the run
    I break a million hearts just for fun
    I don't belong to anyone
    I guess you could say that my life's a mess
    But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
    I'm the image of deception

    When everything is life and death
    You may feel like there's nothing left
    Instead of love and trust and laughter
    What you get is happy never after
    But deep down all you want is love
    The pure kind we all dream of
    But we cannot escape the past
    So you and I will never last

    'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I'm only happy when I'm on the ru-u-un)
    'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I break a million hearts just for fu-u-un)
    'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I'm only happy when I'm on the ru-u-un)
    'Cause I'm a homewrecker, homewrecker
    (I break a million hearts just for fu-u-un)
