I remember the first time I saw you
With your pretty brown eyes that sparkled in the light
And your long brown hair
And the way you could dance so well

And you took the air I’m breathing and you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened, but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart,
Oh, oh oh, broken heart

And broken hearts, they never fade away
And broken hearts are here, here to stay

I know that we didn’t dwell
But that doesn’t give you an excuse to
To date all the men you can
Especially, my best friend

‘Cause you took the air I’m breathing and you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened, but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Oh, oh oh, broken heart

And broken hearts, they never fade away
And broken hearts are here, here to stay

‘Cause you took the air I’m breathing and you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened, but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Oh, oh oh, broken heart

And you took the air I’m breathing and you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened, but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Oh, oh oh, broken heart

And broken hearts, they never fade away

‘Cause you took the air I’m breathing, and you stole my heart
I don’t know what happened, but we fell apart
You left me with a broken heart
Oh, oh oh, broken heart
