  • I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
    Just prayin' to a god that I don't believe in
    'Cause I got time while she got freedom
    'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even

    Her best days will be some of my worst
    She finally met a man that's gonna put her first
    While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping
    'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even, even, no

    What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you,
    And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah
    I'm falling to pieces

    They say bad things happen for a reason
    But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
    'Cause she's moved on while I'm still grieving
    And when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven even, no

    What am I gonna to do when the best part of me was always you,
    And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah
    I'm falling to pieces
    (One still in love while the other ones leaving)
    I'm falling to pieces
    ('Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

    Oh you got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
    You took your suitcase, I took the blame
    Now I'm try'na make sense of what little remains ooh
    'Cause you left me with no love and no love to my name

    I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
    Just prayed to a god that I don't believe in
    'Cause I got time while she got freedom
    'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break
    No it don't break
    No it don't breakeven no

    What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you and
    What am I suppose to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK
    (Oh glad your okay now)
    I'm falling to pieces yeah
    I'm falling to pieces yeah
    I'm falling to pieces
    (One still in love while the other ones leaving)
    I'm falling to pieces yeah
    ('Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

    Oh it don't breakeven no
    Oh it don't breakeven no
    Oh it don't breakeven no Writer/s: Andrew Frampton, Daniel O'Donoghue, Mark Sheehan, Stephen Kipner
