The Brokenhearted Lyrics

by Bruce Springsteen

Well, darling, oh, won't you come a little closer?
I promise, pretty darling, I didn't know what I was saying
And now I'm praying that you won't say it's over
Come here, pretty baby, and rest your head upon my shoulder

Just one kiss and we started
Now don't leave me to the brokenhearted
The brokenhearted, the brokenhearted
And tell me that you need me

Well, now baby, the lonely nights keep growing longer
And my love for you just keeps growing stronger
Like a wheel of chance so endlessly turning
My fate lay in your hands, my heart's forever burning

In a sweet fire your kiss started
Now don't leave me to the brokenhearted
The brokenhearted, the brokenhearted
And tell me that you love me
Tell me that you want me, girl

The cruel mistakes I've made, the hard price that I've paid
For the good times and for laughter
Girl, I should've known for the indifference that I've shown
I'd pay forever after

And darling, now all I'm trying to say
Is passion and love, they have a way
Of slipping into blackness, uncared for of slipping away
The deck is cut, the cards turned, the hand is played
And all we ever hope for burns to ashes and drifts away

Now don't let our love slip into this darkness
Don't leave me to the brokenhearted
The brokenhearted, the brokenhearted
And tell me that you love me

Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you love me
Tell me that you want me

Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you want me
Tell me that you love me
Yeah, tell me that you love me

Tell me that you love me
Tell me that you want me
And come on now, daring
Say it right now, baby
Say it right now, darling
Tell me that you love me
