Give Your Heart a Break

Demi Lovato

Give Your Heart a Break Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The day I first met you, you told me you never fall in love
But now that I get you, I know fear is what it really was
Now here we are
So close, yet so far
Haven't I passed the test?
When will you realize, baby, I'm not like the rest?

[Chorus 1]
Don't wanna break your heart
I wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to waste
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

[Verse 2]
On Sunday, you went home alone
There were tears in your eyes
I called your cell phone, my love, but you did not reply
The world is ours if we want it
We can take it, if you just take my hand
There's no turning back now
Baby, try to understand

[Chorus 1]
Don't wanna break your heart
I wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to waste
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break

[Post-Chorus]
There's just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

[Bridge]
When your lips are on my lips
Then our hearts beat as one
But you slip out of my fingertips
Every time you run, whoa

[Chorus 1]
Don't wanna break your heart
I wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to waste
So let me give your heart a break

(Let me give your heart a break)

[Chorus 2]
'Cause you've been hurt before
I can see it in your eyes
You try to smile it away
Some things you can't disguise

Don't wanna break your heart
Baby, I can ease the ache, the ache
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break

[Post-Chorus]
There's just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break (your heart)
Your heart a break (a break)
Oh yeah, yeah

[Outro]
The day I first met you, you told me you'd never fall in love

“Give Your Heart a Break” is the last single from Demi Lovato’s third album Unbroken.

The song was written & produced by Josh Alexander and Billy Steinberg.

According to MTV, Demi explained that despite the play on the word “heartbreak” in the title, the song is the exact opposite, saying:

Last year, I began working on a song about a different love. It’s a song about showing someone you love that you’re the one right in front of them. This is a song about faith.“

The song peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100, topped Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 chart, #16 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, #12 on Billboard’s Adult Top 40 chart and #38 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Songs chart.
