"Break Your Little Heart" as written by Matt Squire and All / Low....
Wide awake, my mistake, so predictable
You were fake, I was great, nothing personal
I'm walking, who's laughing now?
(Who's laughing, who's laughing now?)

I'm wasted, wasting time
You talk for hours but you're wasting lines
A pretty face but the chase ain't worth the prize

I'm gonna break your little heart
Watch you take the fall
Laughing all the way to the hospital
'Cause there's nothing surgery can do
When I break your little heart in two
I'm gonna break your little heart in two

A party queen, cause a scene, so ridiculous
Little dress, maybe less, so conspicuous
You're falling, who's crashing now?
(Who's crashing, who's crashing now?)

I'm wasted, wasting time
I'm moving on but you're left behind
A pretty face but the chase ain't worth the prize

I'm gonna break your little heart
Watch you take the fall
Laughing all the way to the hospital
'Cause there's nothing surgery can do

I'm gonna break your little heart
Show you to the door
Sew yourself shut and now you're begging for more
'Cause there's nothing surgery can do
When I break your little heart in two

Don't be so sentimental, no
This is love is accidental, so
Give it up, this was never meant to be
More than a memory for you

I'm gonna break your little heart
Watch you take the fall
Laughing all the way to the hospital
'Cause there's nothing surgery can do
(When I break your little heart in two)

I'm gonna break your little heart
Show you to the door
Sew yourself shut, now you're begging for more
'Cause there's nothing surgery can do
When I break your little heart in two

    Song Meaning"Wide awake, my mistake
    So predictable
    You were fake, I was great
    Nothing personal"

    I think this is about a guy who wakes up after a one night stand.
    Looks over at the girl and sees she's the same as all the other, nothing special.
    She faked everything about the night before, nothing about her is real.

    General Commentfell in love with this song the first time i listened to it.
    it was the one i couldn't wait to listen to before i bought nothing personal and i still love it. :D
    it's definitely about revenge; he's in a relationship that's gone wrong and having problems ("wide awake, my mistake so predictable") and that's he still thinks she's pretty and stuff but she's not worth all the trouble she's caused him ("pretty face but the chase ain't worth the prize") so as revenge he's gonna break her heart.

    love it. :]
    i now plan to do this with a guy who broke my heart and was a total idiot with me a while ago. thanks atl! :D

    General CommentThe lyrics are definitely some of the best lyrics I have ever heard.
    Such a "middle finger" kind of song to any ex girlfriend.
    Good break up song.

    General CommentIt sounds like the girl used him ('You were fake..") and now he's making her fall in love with him just so he can break her heart and get back at her.
