One Broken Heart Lyrics

by Rick Springfield

Young girl, you really did believe in him
Still he broke your heart with lies
You've got to be stronger
The pain, it won't last much longer
Don't lose respect for yourself, no

Sweet young thing
No, don't lose your head
Or by the time you're seventeen
You'll be waking every morning
With a stranger in your bed

One broken heart
I know it cuts like a knife
But one broken heart
Is no reason to give up on life

Girl, be waiting, be anticipating
For that new love to come along
And one broken heart, you'll survive

So sad, you lived for and now
You're dying for love but you won't find it like that
No peace and calm
In the strength of a stranger's arms
Baby wake up to yourself

Love ain't guaranteed, no
But it sure is worth a new start
Or by the time you're twenty one
You'll be lying in a stranger's bed
Dying from a broken heart

One broken heart
I know it cuts like a knife
But one broken heart
Is no reason to give up on life

Girl, be waiting, be anticipating
For that new love to come along
And one broken heart, you'll survive

And I'm hoping, I'm really hoping
That sweet love will come your way
To mend one broken heart, you'll survive
One broken heart, you'll survive
One broken heart, you'll survive
