Hate to See Your Heart Break

Play Video
  • There is not a single word, in the whole world
    That could describe the hurt the dullest knife just sawing and back and forth
    And ripping through the softest skin there ever was

    How were you to know?
    Well, how were you to know?

    And I, I hate to see your heart break
    I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    But I've been there before
    And I, I hate to see your heart break
    I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    But I've been there before

    Love, happens all the time, to people who aren't kind
    And heroes who are blind,
    Expecting perfect script in movie scenes
    Once an awkward silence mystery

    How were you to know?
    Well how were you to know, oh, oh?

    And I, I hate to see your heart break
    I hate to see your eyes, get darker as they close
    But I've been there before
    And I, I hate to see your heart break
    I hate to see your eyes, get darker as they close
    But I've been there before

    For all the air that's in your lungs
    For all the joy that is to come
    For all the things that you're alive to feel
    Just let the pain remind you hearts can heal

    Well, how were you to know?
    Well, how were you to know?

    And I, I hate to see your heart break
    I hate to see your eyes, get darker as they close
    But I've been there before
    And I, I hate to see your heart break
    I hate to see your eyes, get darker as they close
    But I've been there before Writer/s: HAYLEY WILLIAMS, TAYLOR YORK
