Back To Her Heartbreak Kid

Verse 1

She wanders the streets searching for castles of gold
But she finds it just doesn't matter
So many promises broken, the lies she's been told
The men who only look past her
She's tired of the losers, tired of the street
She's got only her memories to fight the deceit
But she remembers who loves her
She calls him her Heartbreak Kid

Verse 2

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

Chorus

At last, she knows where her heart is, she knows where he sleeps
It's time to remember the promise he'll keep
She's goin' back to who loves her
BACK TO HER HEARTBREAK KID

Bridge

Now, she's so sick of the city, this 'Town Without Pity'
And she knows he waits for her call
So she picks up the phone, says, "I'm comin' home"
She's goin' back to him, BACK TO HER HEARTBREAK KID
(Inst)

Reprise

She's tired of the losers, tired of the street
She's got only her memories to fight the deceit
But, she remembers who loves her
She calls me her Heartbreak Kid

Now, she can still hear my words, "For you I'll do anything"
That's when she gave me her heart and I gave her my ring
She loves when I kiss her
She calls me her Heartbreak Kid

Chorus

At last, she knows where her heart is, she knows where I sleep
It's time she remembers the promise I'll keep
She's comin' back to who loves her
BACK TO HER HEARTBREAK KID

Outro

She's comin' back
Yeah, she's comin' back
She's comin' back to who loves her
She knows I'm her HEARTBREAK KID
