Back To My Heartbreak Kid

Verse 1

I've wandered the streets searching for castles of gold
But I find it just doesn't matter
So many promises broken, the lies I've been told
The men who just try and flatter
I'm so tired of the losers, tired of the street
I've got only my memories to fight the deceit
But I remember who loves me
I call him my Heartbreak Kid

Verse 2

I know I'll never forget all the love that I felt
Glorious days and passionate nights
But, my hopes and my dreams would take me so far away
Couldn't resist those big city lights
But, I remember his words, "For you I'll do anything"
That's when I gave him my heart and he gave me his ring
I'd laugh when he kissed me
And call him my Heartbreak Kid

Chorus

At last, I know where my heart is, I know where he sleeps
It's time to remember the promise he'll keep
I'm goin' back to who loves me
BACK TO MY HEARTBREAK KID

Bridge

I'm so sick of the city, this 'Town Without Pity'
And I know he waits for my call
I'm gonna pick up the phone, say, "I'm comin' home"
I'm goin' back to him, BACK TO MY HEARTBREAK KID
I'm goin' back.......(Inst)

Reprise

I'm tired of the losers, tired of the street
I've got only my memories to fight the deceit
But, I remember who loves me
I call him me Heartbreak Kid

I can still hear his words, "For you I'll do anything"
That's when I gave him my heart and he gave me his ring
I loved when he kissed me
I called him my Heartbreak Kid

Chorus

At last, I know where my heart is, I know where he sleeps
It's time to remember the promise he'll keep
I'm goin' back to who loves me
BACK TO MY HEARTBREAK KID

Outro

I'm goin' back
Yeah, I'm goin' back
I'm goin' back to who loves me
BACK TO MY HEARTBREAK KID
