Verse 1

Brace yourself, you have to deal with the rejection.

Brace yourself, you need to make it normal, diffuse the tension.

And brace yourself for that morning when you'll wake up and see

That he's found The One with whom he's supposed to be.

Chorus

Brace yourself for another heartache.

And don't you dare call him a mistake.

It was your idea to put your heart at stake,

And it's your fault that it's about to break.

So brace yourself for another heartache.

Verse 2

Brace yourself, you have new pain coming your way.

Brace yourself, you'll have to face him and smile every single day.

And brace yourself for that morning when you'll wake up and see

That you haven't talked in so long, now he's just a mystery.

Chorus

Brace yourself for another heartache.

And don't you dare call him a mistake.

It was your idea to put your heart at stake,

And it's your fault that it's about to break.

So brace yourself for another heartache.

Bridge

And you know

You're afraid,

You've said

You'll take it slow,

You'll let him go.

But you know

You're just lying to yourself.

So brace yourself.

Chorus

Brace yourself for another heartache.

And don't you dare call him a mistake.

It was your idea to put your heart at stake,

And it's your fault that it's about to break.

So brace yourself for another heartache.

Chorus

Brace yourself for another heartache.

And don't you dare call him a mistake.

It was your idea to put your heart at stake,

And it's your fault that it's about to break.

So brace yourself for another heartache.
