I might be falling but it's not in love
I love love but not romantic love
Scared to feel the pain again,scared to be taken for a fool again so I hold back whatever I feel cos
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Made you buy my faviorite wine,promised you to come dine with you and give it a try but I never arrived
Turned off the phone, Turned off the lights and went to sleep with my concious killing me
I should've called and told you I'm not game for it, left you in vain! wanted to come but I was too scared I might fall in love again
I don't wanna fall in love- dont wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Stood you up and I did the same to him and him and him too.
Gave him a kiss and promised to be back before sunset but that was a lie too
Went to bed with the thought of what could've been if I went back there
Maybe he might of given me the look that he gave me when I opened the door and saw him for the first time
I wouldn't know because I was too scared to go back
Scared he would kiss me again and this time I'd drown deeper and ask if I'm a keeper and we might just fall in love.
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Told me you were coming so I said I'd be right here when you get here
Promised you attention and maybe a little bit of my affection but you got here and as soon as I felt  an attraction I turned around and never looked back
Acted like you were not here- Dawn came and I left you sleeping on the couch all alone
No goodbye, no words from daytime till dawn just the confusion in your eyes and fury that calmed each time you were taken away by my still fresh face I wish I could say I was sorry but that would start another love story
I don't wanna fall in love -I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

I'm in love with love but not romantic love
This could've been a love letter to the one
But  it's just a broken love letter about the broken hearts I have caused because
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead
