Ooh
Oh
Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart, everybody except 4 me
I just want a chance 2 play the part, the part of some1 truly free

Like candle slowly burning, I can feel my world unravel
Hemisphere upon hemisphere lie beneath my soul, soul
My enemies kept it turning but now they pound the gavel
And judging me accordingly, I know, I know

Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart, everybody except 4 me
I just want a chance 2 play the part, the part of some1 truly free
Hey, hey oh

Burning slowly candle, handle careless they did
I'm barrellin' down 3 heartbreak boulevards
Like fashion statements, they lie
"U b lookin' so good 2night, kid"
I do my best 2 party
It's just that everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart

Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart (Except 4 me)
Everybody except 4 me (Just want a chance 2 play) (I wanna just play)
I just want a chance 2 play the part, the part of some1 truly free, free
I just wanna b free
Oh...

Oh
Slowly candle burns, where'd they learn hypnosis?
How'd they keep me under 4 so long?
Break the bread I earn, just keep me far from closest
I need their kind 2 illustrate what's wrong
What's wrong? Well, I'll tell U, uh
They just keep tryin' 2 break my heart
(Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart, everybody except 4 me)
They just keep tryin' 2 break my heart, ow!
(I just want a chance 2 play the part, the part of some1 truly free)
Oh! (Everybody)
Ooh
Ooh (Everybody)

Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart, everybody except 4 me
I just want a chance 2 play the part, the part of some1 truly free
But I can't let U break my heart
Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart
Slave! Slave! (Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart)
Slave! Slave! (Everybody keeps tryin' 2 break my heart)
