why did i break your heart lyrics – 10cc

inside my loneliness and sorting through the mess
i came across a bunch of snaps and letters
i found an eight by ten, taken god knows when
it took me back to when we found each other
how did i let it start
if i could only remember
oh, oh, why did i break your heart
the tender parts we played
i thought we had it made
the recipe for life, the perfect fusion
but when the love turned sour
i found the happy hour
but drinking for the world is no solution
how did i let it start
if i could only remember
oh, oh, why did i break your heart
can’t we go back to the start
i needed someone to tell me
why did i break your heart
the cost of loving is a heavy burden
somebody’s gotta take the strain
the things we said would make a cover story
but who’s gonna say
who should take all the blame
we *n*lysed ourselves
it didn’t really help
no one to referee, no rhyme no reason
i thought we had the best
but when you flew the nest
my heart decided it was open season
how did i let it start
if i could only remember
oh, oh, why did i break your heart
can’t we go back to the start
i needed someone to tell me
oh, oh, why did i break your heart
why did i break your heart…
