lyrics

Heart break, the heart breaks now,
Heart break, the heart breaks now.

I won't watch my heart break from a distance,
I don't want to be caught up in the cynicism,
And I won't ever view my life as a witness,
If I wanna live, if I wanna live,
I won't watch my heart break from a distance,
I don't want to be caught up in the cynicism,
And I won't ever view my life as a witness,
If I wanna live, if I wanna live.

I won't watch my heart break, and it's gonna break,
Every second in her cube she knows is a mistake,
She bites her pencil while she enters in the data tables,
Every doodle on her desk suggests she's more than able,
But the dreams she has left are from another life,
And she can't live it no more, she needs a place to sleep,
So she's taken her art and put it to the side,
She can feel her heart break. though it's buried deep.

I won't watch my heart break from a distance,
I don't want to be caught up in the cynicism,
And I won't ever view my life as a witness,
If I wanna live, if I wanna live,
I won't watch my heart break from a distance,
I don't want to be caught up in the cynicism,
And I won't ever view my life as a witness,
If I wanna live, if I wanna live.

I won't watch my heart break, and it's gonna break,
He's typing out some clever words synonymous with hate,
He used to struggle with his inner demons on the page,
Until that struggling became about a living wage,
And now he's been told that he'd be better off,
Using 200 words to get his snark across,
Critiquing the poetry he's jealous of,
He can feel his heart break from a lost love.

I won't watch my heart break from a distance,
I don't want to be caught up in the cynicism,
And I won't ever view my life as a witness,
If I wanna live, if I wanna live,
I won't watch my heart break from a distance,
I don't want to be caught up in the cynicism,
And I won't ever view my life as a witness,
If I wanna live, if I wanna live.

I won't watch my heart break, the heart breaks now,
Heart break, the heart breaks now,
I won't watch my heart break, the heart breaks now,
I won't watch my heart break, the heart breaks now.
