1 2 3, just like that, I'm already gone

A quick goodbye, no teary eyes, said I'm moving on

You beg me, but I can't be, your girl anymore

Held my ground, won't back down, headed out the door

I took my keys, my coat, my cat and left you behind
You were just a bad boyfriend, drove me outta my mind
I almost lost all faith in men, but that can't be true

Just like that, I'll be back, with someone better than you

Would it have, killed you, to pick up your socks

It wasn't like, you had to buy, me a shiny rock

Why'd you vent, your political bent, when you met my dad

Might be trite, but I need to find, someone who don't do that

I took my keys, my coat, my cat and left you behind
You were just a bad boyfriend, drove me outta my mind
I almost lost all faith in men, but that can't be true

Just like that, I'll be back, with someone better than you

You can't throw around those 3 words like they're nothing
'Cause they just might land in someone's soul and they just might mean something
I've given you permission to take whatever you want

But that don't mean you can leave and take my heart

'Cause I still have the note with the coffee stain
I took every word as a promise made
Some kinds of hurt you can't help but hold on to
And one of them is you

I should walk away, and put this love behind me

But then you look at me with your charcoal eyes and I'm pulled back in completely
You're a drug that I couldn't resist, I just had to taste it

That's all it took, I was hooked, addicted

Yeah I still have the note with the coffee stain
I took every word as a promise made

Some kinds of hurt you can't help but hold on to
And one of them is you

This ain't no way to live

My heart needs more than this

Think I'll survive

If you hold me tight one last time - tonight

'Cause I still have the note with the coffee stain
I took every word as a promise made
Some kinds of hurt you can't help but hold on to
And one of them is you
And one of them is you

Na na na na, Na na na na Na na na na Na na na na, Na na na na Na na na na

Open up the windows and let those good vibes in
Breathe in the sunshine, hear the birds chirpin

Turn up the radio, and get singin'

So what if the neighbors hear, they can always join in

I've gotta take this to the street, show everyone
How to loosen up your tie and have a little fun

I feel happy, like a summer day

Not a cloud in the sky, the heat of July, nothing in my way
Call me crazy, that's okay

Feeling alive, big as the sky gonna ride this wave

I dare someone, come on anyone, to be happier than that
Na na na na, Na na na na, happier than that

Na na na na, Na na na na

That guy on the bus stop bench, bet he could use a laugh
I'm gonna walk over there, and do just that

You never know who's day you might brighten up

A little smile or a howdy do, it don't take much

Come out here on the street, everyone

Go ahead, loosen up your tie, have a little fun

I feel happy, like a summer day

Not a cloud in the sky, the heat of July, nothing in my way
Call me crazy, that's okay

Feeling alive, big as the sky, gonna ride this wave

I dare someone, come on anyone, to be happier than that
Na na na na, Na na na na, happier than that

Na na na na, Na na na na

I'm so happy (come on I dare ya)
I'm so happy (you know you wanna)
I'm so happy

I feel happy, like a summer day

Not a cloud in the sky, the heat of July, nothing in my way
Call me crazy, that's okay

Feeling alive, big as the sky, gonna ride this wave

I dare someone, come on anyone, to be happier than that

Clock strikes the midnight hour, she downs a whiskey sour
And all the guys think they've got a shot
She came dressed for the dance, but they don't have a chance
She likes revenge served up hot

She'll get revenge served up hot

Girls with broken hearts

Have seen behind the curtain
Oh girls with broken hearts

Have gone crazy from all the hurtin'
She'll pull you down, and make you cry
Just like her you're gonna wanna die
So guys don't you try to get girls with broken hearts

Black mascara down her cheek, no sugar in her tea
Pouring out her thoughts in a little pink book
You think that she looks cute, but you don't have a clue
Can't you recognize that just-been-burned look
You oughta recognize that just-been-burned look

Girls with broken hearts

have seen behind the curtain
Oh girls with broken hearts

have gone crazy from all the hurtin'
She'll pull you down, and make you cry
Just like her you're gonna wanna die

So guys don't you try to get girls with broken hearts

It might take a hundred years

'til then don't mess with the tears of

...girls with broken hearts

they've seen behind the curtain
Oh girls with broken hearts

have gone crazy from all the hurtin'
She'll pull you down, and make you cry
Just like her you're gonna wanna die
So guys don't you try to get girls with broken hearts
Girls with broken hearts
