No need to worry,
You'll get your turn to cry.
No need to hurry
And I'll tell you why.
You're always chasing a heartache,
You always catch it in spades.
Try playing it smart,
Take the love before it fades.

There's enough heartache for everyone,
I know that for sure.
Enough heartache for everyone,
You're gonna get yours.
There's enough heartache for everyone,
I know that for sure.
Enough heartache for everyone,

Like some kid in a toy store,
One thrill to the next.
You're sure you want that next boy more
Before the last one suspects.
When I think of the heartache,
The dreams I turned to sand,
The next time your heart aches
Maybe then you'll understand.


You like playing the fast games,
You hate keeping score.
You never bother with last names,
That's not what love is for.
It's gonna cut you right to the core.


Enough Heartache
