I Can Break My Own Heart
writers: Marc Kuchner and Stacey Magers

It's been four long years since you disappeared
And I've been keeping occupied
I was settling down back in my hometown
And guess who appeared by my side?
You said: hey sugar pie, can I give you a ride?
Ain't I seen you down this road before?
Well honey, it's true that I've been there with you
But I don't need your kind of help anymore

I can break my own heart
I can sing my own blues
I can kill my own time
Get high on my own cheap booze
I can tell my own lies
I don't need your alibis
I can break my own heart, baby
Now I don't need you.

Well when you left I was a worse than a wreck.
Cause I thought you were the best I could find
But the more I would cruise on the sea of my blues
The less I had you on my mind
The next man I found I left my hopes on the ground
And emptied the glass in my hand
I shivered and sighed and was starting to cry.
Before he even asked me to dance.

`Cause I can break my own heart
I can sing my own blues
I can kill my own time
Get high on my own cheap booze
I can tell my own lies
I don't need your alibis
I can break my own heart, baby
Now I don't need you.

Well honey you taught me some lessons
Things I should have known before
But I picked up my best bad habits
After you walked out my door.

Now I can break my own heart
I can get my own blues
I can kill my own time
Get high on my own cheap booze
I can tell my own lies
I don't need your alibis
I can break my own heart, baby
Now I don't need you.
