Don't you want to go for a ride
Just keep your hands inside
And make the most out of life
Now don't you take it for granted
Life is like a mean machine
It made a mess out of me
And let me come between
Like an anchor dream, I was stranded
I was stranded, yeah yeah yeah

And I'm steady though I'm starting to shake
And I don't know how much more I can take

Well this is it now
Everybody get down
This is all I can take
This is how a heart breaks
You take a hit now
You feel it break down
Make you stay while I wait
This is how a heart breaks

Don't you want to go for a ride
Now to the other side
Feels so good you could cry
Now won't you do what I told you
I remember when you used to be shy
Once we were so fine, you and I
And why you gotta make it so hard on me
Yeah it's hard on me

And I'm sorry but it's not a mistake
And I'm running but you're getting away

Well this is it now
Everybody get down
This is all I can take
This is how a heart breaks
You take a hit now
You feel it break down
Make you stay while I wait
This is how a heart breaks

This is how a heart breaks

You're not the best thing that I knew
Never was, never cared too much for all this hanging around
It's just the same thing all the time
Never get what I want, never get too close to the end of the line
You're just the same thing that I knew
Right before the time when I was running from you

Well this is it now
Everybody get down
This is all I can take
This is how a heart breaks
You take a hit now
You feel it break down
Make you stay while I wait
This is how a heart breaks

Well this is it now
Everybody get down
This is all I can take
This is how a heart breaks
You take a hit now
You feel it break down
Make you stay while I wait
This is how a heart breaks

Oh yeah
This is how a heart breaks
Oh-oh-oh
This is how a heart breaks
I can't take it
How a heart breaks
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
This is how a heart breaks
This is how a heart breaks
Oh-oh

This is how a heart breaks
This is how a heart breaks
