Verse 1

I've always known a world of pain.

I told you if you left me, I'd break down again.

Didn't I beg you to leave me alone

Before I get so attached that I would miss you in my bones?

Didn't I beg you to just walk away

If I wasn't the girl you wanted for the rest of your days?

Chorus

Why did you take a chance on my broken heart

If you were unsure about me right from the start?

Why were you so needlessly reckless with my love?

Hadn't I already hurt a lot? Already lost enough?

Verse 2

I've always loved men who just leave.

Now you've taken the last of all I had to give.

Didn't I tell you about the last guy?

My fears, my insecurities, his manipulative lies?

And the one before him, my first heart break.

Didn't I tell you losing you would be too much to take?

Chorus

Why did you take a chance on my broken heart

If you were unsure about me right from the start?

Why were you so needlessly reckless with my love?

Hadn't I already hurt a lot? Already lost enough?

Bridge

We're here today because you always knew,

You never loved me the way I love you.

You could walk away any time you liked.

My heart would be the only one stuck with a knife.

Chorus

Why did you take a chance on my broken heart

If you were unsure about me right from the start?

Why were you so needlessly reckless with my love?

Hadn't I already hurt a lot? Already lost enough?
