Lyrics

(LyricFind)

You always hurt the one you love

The one you shouldn’t hurt at all

You always take the sweetest rose

And crush it till the petals fall

You always break the kindest heart

With a hasty word you can’t recall, so

If I broke your heart last night

It’s because I love you most of all

You always hurt the one you love

The one you shouldn’t hurt at all

You always take the sweetest rose

And crush it till the petals fall

You always break the kindest heart

With a hasty word you can’t recall

So, if I broke your heart last night

It’s because I love you most of all

You always hurt the one you love

The one you shouldn’t hurt at all

You always take the sweetest rose

Crush it, till the petals fall

You always break the kindest heart

With a hasty word you can’t recall, so

If I broke your heart last night

It’s because I love you most of all
