“One More Heartache” Lyrics

One more heartache
I can’t take it
My heart is carryin’ such a heavy load
One more ache would break it

Like a camel, they say, with a, a heavy pack
A-one last straw, they say it was broke that camel’s back

(I, I, I, I) I, I, I, I can’t make it
I can’t take it

One more heartache
Turn me right around
First, you build my hopes up high
Then you tear me down

Like a house of matchsticks on a, a kitchen table
A-one last matchstick broke it down, the foundation was not able

(I, I, I, I) I, I, I, I can’t make it
I can’t take it

[break]

(I, I, I, I)

One more heartache
Just be too much load
I’m fed up with the heartache
One more, and I’ll explode

Like a toy balloon that’s filled up with as much as it can take
A-one last drop of air, and that balloon is bound to break

(I, I, I, I) I, I, I, I can’t make it
