Album: For Children Of All Ages (1969)
  • Millions of people know just how I feel
    Thought I found a lifetime of love that was real
    I gave all I had to give
    I gave him my life to live
    A life that no longer has meaning since he went away
    Now all I can say is

    It's alright
    Let him break my heart
    It's alright
    Let him tear it apart
    It's alright
    Let him break my heart again

    I can't feel at thing
    I can't even feel pain
    Somebody help me out
    You've just got to tell me why

    There's just got to be an explanation
    Loving him was my highest aspiration
    You've got to face up to the situation
    Since our separation, I live with my conversation

    It's alright
    Let him break my heart
    It's alright
    Let him tear it apart
    It's alright
    Let him break my heart again
