Lyrics

Why do lovers break each others hearts?
Oh, tell me why do lovers have to drift apart
When we met the world was right
Now I'm crying every night
Why do lovers break each others hearts?

Why do lovers break each others hearts?
Oh, tell me why can't lovers finish what they start
A year ago we were one
Now just look at what we've done
Why do lovers break each others hearts?

Help me, help me, I don't understand
Why we always hurt the ones we love
Tell me, tell me where's the life we planned
Where are the dreams
That we dream we're dreaming oh-oh-oh-of?

Why do lovers break each others hearts?
Oh, tell me why do lovers have to drift apart
When we met the world was right
Now I'm crying every night
Why do lovers break each others hearts? (Instrumental)

When we met the world was right
Now I'm crying every night
Why do lovers break each others hearts

Why do lovers break each others hearts?
