Elton John - "Breaking Hearts" lyrics

Music by elton john

Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album breaking hearts

They used to say that boys are tough as nails
In every way he keeps his heart as guarded as a jail

Now things have changed, I feel so old

Like any girl could drag my heart across the coals

I was always there in the thick of things

I always had the heart of every woman on a string

The danger zone shone from my eyes

It seemed like every inch I gained became a mile

Its not the night reaching in and touching me
Its just that breaking hearts aint what it used to be

It seems that time has killed that cruel streak in me
And breaking hearts aint what it used to be

Its not the light shining in and catching me
Its just that breaking hearts aint what it used to be

But time has come and cast a spell on me

And breaking hearts aint what it used to be

And now I know what lonely means

I used to give so little and gain everything

The darkest part of every day
Is the shadow of another girl as she turns and walks away

Cant say I blame them all for being hurt

After all I treated each and every one like dirt
I face the facts and lock myself into a life aloneWho wants a heart thats never home
