Don’t Break My Heart

Standard

Can I trust you
If I give this to you
Will you keep it safe
Lock it away?
Can I believe you
Keep it in your care
Trust you’ll protect it
Keep it somewhere safe

I only want to ask you one thing
Can you promise me one thing?

{chorus}
Don’t break my heart
It’s a tattered little thing
It’s been broken before
And I just got it working again
So please be careful with me…

It’s been rained on
It’s been dried
It’s been shattered
And it’s been tied.
I usually keep it in a block of ice
But I’ll let you have it
Just please be kind

I only want to ask you one thing
Can you promise me one thing?

{chorus}
Don’t break my heart
It’s a tattered little thing
It’s been broken before
And I just got it working again
So please be careful with me…

I don’t really want to give it up
Unless I’m sure
You won’t take it and rip it apart
I’m sick of watching it bleed
But a band-aide just won’t do
Can I hand it over and expect you to…

{chorus}x2
Not break my heart
It’s a tattered little thing
It’s been broken before
And I just got it working again
So please be careful with me…

So please, don’t break my heart…
