* 4-bar intro, ad-libs

* Verse 1 So many times I've seen
So many people's dreams
Lost and washed away out to the sea, yeah.
I said, "No, not I."
Pain would surely pass me by.
Happening to them but not to me, yeah.

* Chorus Hearts get broken all the time (ooh).
Never used to worry 'bout things like this (I wouldn't worry),
But the trouble is (this time it's mine).
Now I'm worrying (this one is mine).
See, the problem is the heart is mine.

* Verse 2 Love would be all I'd need.
How naive could I be
Trusting other people with my care, yeah?
I never thought I'd have to be
One of love's casualties.
Up until now, my belief was that love was fair.

* Chorus 2 Hearts get broken all the time (ooh).
But I never worry 'bout things like this (I didn't worry),
But the trouble is (this time it's mine).
I keep worrying (this one is mine).
See, the problem is the heart is mine.

* Bridge This time, my heart's breaking.
This time, my love's failing.
I'm trying hard not to be bitter now (bitter now).
(spoken) I never dreamed that the broken heart would be mine.

* Chorus 3 (Hearts get broken all the time, ooh).
You think it's love, but it never really is.
(I never could imagine) a thing like that (I wouldn't worry),
But the trouble is (this time it's mine).
Git ne worrying (this one is mine).
See, the problem is the heart is mine.

* Chorus 4 Hearts get broken all the time (ooh).
I never cared a doggone thing about that (I didn't worry),
But the trouble is (this time it's mine)
And the problem really is (this one is mine).
See, the whole thing is the heart is mine.

* Ad-libs 'til end, background vocals repeating
This time, it's mine.
This one is mine.
The heart is mine.
