"Heartbreaker" as written by Alecia B Moore, Kara Dioguardi and Greg Wells....
I keep thinkin' bout that little sparkle in your eye
Is it a light from the angels, or your devil deep inside?
What about the way you say you love me all the time
Are you liftin' me up to heaven, just to drop me down the line?

There's a ring around my finger,
But will you change your mind?
And you tell me that I'm beautiful,
But that could be a lie

Are you a heartbreaker?
Maybe you want me for the ride
What if I'm fallin' for a heartbreaker?
And everything is just a lie
I won't be leavin' here alive
I won't be leavin' here alive, no

Temporary happiness is like waiting for the knife
'Cause I'm always watchin' for someone to show their darker side
So maybe I'll sit back and just enjoy all this for now
Watch it all play out, see if you really stick around

But there's always this one question
That keeps me up at night
Are you my greatest love
Or disappointment in my life?

Are you a heartbreaker?
Maybe you want me for the ride
What if I'm fallin' for a heartbreaker?
And everything is just a lie
I won't be leavin' here alive
I might as well lay down and die

I'm holding on with both hands and both feet, oh
Promise that you won't pull the rug out from under me

Are you a heartbreaker?
Maybe you want me for the ride
I pray to god you're not a heartbreaker
This time around I won't survive
'Cause if I'm fallin' for a heartbreaker

And everything is just a lie
I won't be leavin' here alive
I might as well lay down and die, oh
I won't be leavin' here alive

    General CommentMy god, if this isn't -the- anthem for someone who has had her trust obliterated beyond all recognition, I don't know what is.

    "There's always this one question
    That keeps me up at night:
    Are you my greatest love
    Or disappointment, in my life?"

    I have yet to see this sentiment summed up any better than these lines. Amazing. It's true, after you've been shit on and fucked over so many times, you really automatically eye everyone with trepidation. Every single time.

    General Commentsame here I agree too! haha. it really is a good song about being jaded/paranoid from bad relationships, cuz once someone hurts you its hard to trust anyone again.

    General CommentI think Pink's voice is amazing in this song...she sounds like she means every single word she's saying. I've never heard this song before even though its old. Such great lines.

    "And you tell me that I'm beautiful, but that could be a lie..."

    General CommentWhat a fantastic song. It definitely fits how I feel all the time. Always wondering if the person you love is really loving you or enjoying the ride, always questioning why they're with you. So many disappointments in love you begin to think it's just not worth it anymore. I agree with the last comment, this song makes me smile too :)

    General Commenttalk about being heartbroken. too many guys have done her wrong. some guys just don't know how to treat a girl, and now even if she does find the right guy she wont know, she will be too worried about yet another heart break. i can so relate.
