love is just another word for pain
it's a broken record repeating the same thing
when you want it it's not there
when you have it you don't care
when i lose it in the end...
the heartbreak, the heartache is more than i wanted
we gave up, we made up
it's not like you cared
deception, depression is all that i've got
am i losing what's there
and i've made up my mind
i'd be better off alone
love is just a waste of time
and all the lonely nights
and all the crushing scenes
and all the pointless fights
someone tell me what it means
someone tell me why hearts break
'cuz sometimes i think this thing called love is another word for pain
and i'm giving up on happy endings
the one's that are only in movies
where the guy gets the girl and everybody's happy
i think that's the way it should be
the heartbreak, the heartache is more than i wanted
we gave up, we made up
it's not like you cared
deception, depression is all that i've got
am i losing what's there
and i've made up my mind
i'd be better off alone
love is just a waste of time
and all the lonely nights
and all the crushing scenes
and all the pointless fights
someone tell me what it means
someone tell me why hearts break
'cuz sometimes i think this thing called love is another word for pain
is another word for pain
is another word for pain
nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah...

    General Commentwell, first, some of these lyrics are wrong. and the Andy wrote this song when he broke up with his girl friend. they were really good friends, they dated, really bad break up. but then he started dating the most beautiful girl ever ... she can be seen in the promise video ...

    General CommentThis song isn't actually by "matchbook romance". It's by The Getaway. They haven't played it in years, so I guess it wouldn't be on any cd. I don't think it's about Evie- because Andy was still with her when he played this song. So it must have just been about someone else. I do know for a fact however that Tiger Lilly is about Evie.
