Everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart
Everybody except for me
I just want a chance to play the part
The part of someone truly free

Like candle slowly burning, I can feel my world unravel
Hemisphere upon hemisphere lie beneath my soul, soul
My enemies kept it turning but now they pound the gavel
And judging me accordingly, I know, I know

Everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart
Everybody except for me
I just want a chance to play the part
The part of someone truly free

Hey, hey
Hey, oh

Burning slowly candle, handle careless they did
Merrily down three heartbreak boulevards
Like fashion statements, they lie
"You be lookin' so good tonight, kid"
I do my best to party
It's just that everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart

Everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart
Everybody except for me
I just want a chance to play the part
The part of someone truly free

Except for me
(Except for me)
I just want a chance to play
(Just wanna be free)

Slowly candle burns, where'd they learn hypnosis?
How'd they keep me under for so long?
Break the bread I earn, just keep me far from closest
I need their kind to illustrate what's wrong, what's wrong
Well, I'll tell you, they just keep tryin' to break my heart
They just keep tryin' to break my heart, oww

(Everybody, everybody)
Everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart
Everybody except for me
I just want a chance to play the part
The part of someone truly free

But I can't let you break my heart
(Everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart)
Slave
(Everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart)
Slave, slave
(Everybody keeps tryin' to break my heart)
