I gave my heart to you, the one that I trusted You brought it back to me all broken and busted So I sold my heart to the junkman And I'll never fall in love again You took my heart because you thought you could use it Just like a little toy you battered and bruised it So I sold my heart to the junkman And I'll never fall in love again Like a melodrama, in a simple manner Love played the leading part We had planned a happy ending Now I'm left with a broken heart Ohhh, I'll throw away my pride and say we'll be friends, dear Teardrops I just can't hide 'cause this is the end, dear I sold my heart to the junkman And I'll never fall in love again (Piano Solo) Like a melodrama, in a simple manner Love played the leading part We had planned a happy ending Now I'm left with a broken heart Ohhh, I'll throw away my pride and say we'll be friends, dear Teardrops I cannot hide 'cause this is the end, dear I sold my heart to the junkman And I'll never fall in love again No, I'll never fall in love again (Transcribed from the Bette Midler Recording by Mel Priddle - February 2009) ****** As recorded by Bruce Springsteen: Well I gave my heart to you, open, so open and trusting And you gave it back to me, it was broken up and busting (Sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman (Sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman I can never fall in love again Oh, and I know you took my heart You thought that you could use it When you gave it back like a toy You broke and bruised it (Sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman (I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman I can never fall in love again Now, it was a movie sad scene, I played my part Ooh, I wanted the happy ending But all I got was a broken heart (All he got was a broken heart) (I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman (I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman I can never fall in love again Now I swear it was a movie setting, baby I played my part And all I wanted was a happy ending But now I'm left with a broken heart (Now he's left with a broken heart) (I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman (I sold my heart) I sold my heart to the junkman I can never fall in love again I gave my heart to you, so open and trusting And you gave it back to me, it was broken up and busting (so I sold) I sold my heart to the junkman (yes I sold) I sold my heart to the junkman I can never fall in love again Yes I did sold my heart to the junkman Yes I did, yes I did Sold my heart to the junkman Now I can never fall in love again Since I sold my heart to the junkman (Contributed by =Ae= - February 2009)
