V1

I was just turned seventeen
Said goodbye to Sweet Sixteen
Like every girl I dreamed love was forever

That summer he taught me to drive down by the dusty riverside
I fell hard and I fell deep
When I fell into that sweet sleep

CHORUS

We played a game of let’s pretend
I never wanted it to end
I gave my heart so carelessly
And when he gave the pieces back to me
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put ‘em back together again

V2

He had eyes the colour of old blue jeans
Face from the cover of a magazine
And a heart as cold as the soul of December

And I was just too blind to see just what he had in mind for me
I fell hard and I fell fast
Should have known it was too good to last

CHORUS

We played a game of let’s pretend
I never wanted it to end
I gave my heart so carelessly
And when he gave the pieces back to me
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put ‘em back together again

BRIDGE

Sometimes a girl’s just got to let go
Cos it’s gonna hurt more than she can know
Sometimes a shattered heart is never whole again
Never whole again

CHORUS
