Round and Round

ROUND AND ROUND
I take back my heart
I take back my life
You tore it all up
You broke me in pieces
So I'll take my leave
Now I don't believe
Your punishment lies
And you proved deceitful

Chorus
I loved you then
You told me it would be better
When I asked when
You only gave me this broken old record
Going round and round and round and round again

I'll take back my arms
My body and soul
I carry the scars
Where I learned you hate me
And I'll leave the keys
You wouldn't let me
So I'm running away
‘Cos you won't believe me

Chorus
I loved you then
You told me it would be better
When I asked when
You only gave me this broken old record
Going round and round and round and round again

I'll take back myself
Whoever she is
Somebody will know
And you won't be part of it
Won't be too soon
If I never see you
Just leave me alone
The end of my world is

Chorus
I loved you then
You told me it would be better
When I asked when
You only gave me this broken old record
Going round and round and round and round again

Chorus
I loved you then
You told me it would be better
When I asked when
You only gave me this broken old record
Going round and round and round and round
round and round and round and round
round and round and round
This is the end
