Broken Hearts

Why are you doing this to me
You are tearing me apart
You have gone and made me cry
Because you’ve broken my heart.

When you went out with her
You left me all alone
Though we still talk to each other
Sometimes on the phone.

I am very happy for you and she
Although I would be happier
If instead of you and her
It was really you and me.

Why is my heart being torn
Is it because I love you
You are such a wonderful person
I only wish you loved me too.

Can’t you love me like you love her
Instead of tearing me apart
If loving someone is so wonderful
Why do I have a broken heart?
