Silly me, look what I did again
I found what I want is what I cannot have
I didn't mean to be so predictable
But I blame it all on who made you irresistible

And it isn't something I need
'Til you tell me I can't
Why wear my heart on my sleeve
When it looks so good in your hands

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
Taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow
And oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go

Little girl, I don't know why you stay
If I had a feather for every time
That he said that, I could fly away
'Cause old habits are so hard to break
It'd be a shame to stop
Now that I've started to make really good mistakes

And I don't know why I must ask
For the forbidden fruit
I saw the snake in the grass
But I had bitten too soon

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
Taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow
And oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go

I should have seen you coming in
Should recognize the signs a wave's gonna break
Now, given in, why fight it when
I'm resigned to simply live in your wake, your wake

Heart breaks, ooh, in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go, oh
Taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow
And oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go

No, no, no, no
I couldn't find a better man to let me go

Couldn't let me go
Taking me away
Taking me away, yet again
Taking me away, taking me away
