Born With A Broken Heart

Original version (3:39)

You cannot miss
What don’t exist.
You cannot break
A broken heart.

I’d like to tell you my story
But there’s no story to tell;
Till now my life has been boring,
A list of fond farewells.
I’m a ridiculous creature,
I’m like a bird without wings.
My heart’s in permanent winter,
Yours is forever spring.
You’re a truly lovely thing, Truly lovely thing.

But I was born with a broken heart, girl,
I was born with a broken heart. I was born with a broken heart.
I should have told you from the start, girl,
I should have told you from the start I should have told you from the start
I was born with a broken heart. I was born with a broken heart.

I look alright on the outside,
I look like all of the rest.
But there is always a downside,
A secret to confess.
I’ve tried so hard not to show it,
I’ve tried so hard to be warm.
But I can see that you sense it
When you are in my arms.
I don’t wanna see you harmed. Don’t wanna see you harmed.

I was born with a broken heart, girl,
I was born with a broken heart. I was born with a broken heart.
I should have told you from the start, girl,
I should have told you from the start I should have told you from the start
I was born with a broken heart. I was born with a broken heart.

You cannot miss You cannot miss
What don’t exist. What don’t exist.
You cannot break You cannot break
A broken heart. A broken heart.

I was born with a broken heart. I was born with a broken heart.
I should have told you from the start, girl,
I should have told you from the start I should have told you from the start
But I was born with a broken heart. But I was born with a broken heart.
