Breakin' Down Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You don't believe that I love you
And even if that was true
Why just to keep our unhappy home
I'm gonna try to pretend that I do

And I'm breakin' down, I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down, I'm breakin' down
My baby, she left me, said she ain't comin' back around
And I'm breakin' down, oh, I'm breakin' down

And if I thought that it was okay
For a grown man to cry
I would have filled up the whole mighty ocean
When she said goodbye

And I'm breakin' down, oh, I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down, oh, oh, I'm breakin' down
Now, my baby she left me, said she ain't comin' back around
And I'm breakin' down

Oh, one day you said everything was just right
I don't see how, I don't see how it changed overnight
One day you said everything was so strong
The next day you turn to me and say it's been wrong all along, all along

Oh, one day you said everything was just right
I don't see how it changed overnight, babe
One day you said it was so strong
And the next day you said it has been wrong all along

Oh, and now you won't even look at me
You pass me by in the street and you won't even speak
I'd never, I'd never, I'd never meant to cause you any harm
How could two people start so close and end up so far

I'm breakin' down, oh, I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin', I'm breakin', I'm breakin', I'm breakin' down
I'm breakin' down
