  • Lyrics
  • We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain
    We jumped, never asking why
    We kissed, I fell under your spell
    A love no one could deny

    Don’t you ever say I just walked away
    I will always want you
    I can’t live a lie, running for my life
    I will always want you

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    I never hit so hard in love
    All I wanted was to break your walls
    All you ever did was break me
    Yeah, you wreck me

    I put you high up in the sky
    And now, you’re not coming down
    It slowly turned, you let me burn
    And now, we’re ashes on the ground

    Don’t you ever say I just walked away
    I will always want you
    I can’t live a lie, running for my life
    I will always want you

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    I never hit so hard in love
    All I wanted was to break your walls
    All you ever did was break me

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
    Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
    All you ever did was break me
    Yeah, you wreck me

    I never meant to start a war
    I just wanted you to let me in
    And instead of using force
    I guess I should’ve let you in
    I never meant to start a war
    I just wanted you to let me in
    I guess I should’ve let you in

    Don’t you ever say I just walked away
    I will always want you

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    I never hit so hard in love
    All I wanted was to break your walls
    All you ever did was break me

    I came in like a wrecking ball
    Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
    Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
    All you ever did was break me
    Yeah, you, you wreck me

    Yeah, you, you wreck meWriter/s: MAUREEN MCDONALD, LUKAZ GOTTWALD, SACHA SKARBEK, HENRY WALTER, STEPHAN MOCCIO, HENRY MOZELLA, KIM KIYANI
