Hunter Hayes – Heartbreak Lyrics

Heartbreak Lyrics by Hunter Hayes


[Hunter Hayes]
Another “almost perfect”
Didn’t work, but totally worth it
Better to have loved and lost my mind
Than lose the nerve to even try
Another conversation
Awkward, but the ice is breaking
I’ve been in some shit relationships
But I remain an optimist

[Hunter Hayes]
It’s not a game I’m playing
It’s not a thrill I’m chasing
More like a space I’m saving
And I don’t even know your name

[Hunter Hayes]
But if it gets me to you, then it ain’t wasted time
With every “so close,” I’m closer to the rest of my life
Another bad first date (Check)
Another “nothing left to say” (Check)
What I mean is, the way I see it
I’m one heartbreak closer to you, you

[Hunter Hayes]
Hey baby, can I call you “baby?” Is that okay?
I don’t even know you, but I can’t wait to know you someday
Imagine someday when we look back
I’ll thank my past for giving me my future better half

[Hunter Hayes]
I’m sorry for the the time it’s taking
But I’ma make it worth the waiting
And all the strong love that I learned from
Was just practice for the right one

[Hunter Hayes]
If it gets me to you, then it ain’t wasted time
With every “so close,” I’m closer to the rest of my life
Another “just got played” (Check)
A shot of bourbon for the pain (Check)
What I mean is, the way I see it
I’m one heartbreak closer to you, you

[Hunter Hayes]
It’s kinda strange to miss someone I haven’t met, yeah
Someone I haven’t kissed, yeah
But I will do it all

[Hunter Hayes]
If it gets me to you, then it ain’t wasted time
With every “so close,” I’m closer to the rest of my life
Another sad goodbye (Check)
Another sleepless night (Check)
What I mean is, the way I see it
I’m one heartbreak closer to you, you, you
One heartbreak closer to you
