Hearts that are broken and love that's untrue,
These go with learning the game.
When you love her but she doesn't love you,
You're only learning the game.
When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love,
Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of
Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue
That's when you're learning the game
