The Breakup

in LANY

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
I jump from heart to heart, and it's starting to wear me down
"Oh, he's a total dick" is my reputation now 'round town
My momma always said, "Hey take it slow."
But how the hell do you fall in love?
The last time I checked, you can't fall in slow mo

[Chorus]
You think you wanna be, you wanna be alone
Just wait until you're crying on the shower floor
It hits you in the chest, 'bout every day you're done
'Cause once you let it go, you better know it's gone
Ooh ooh
It's never the same, uh, yeah, after the breakup
Ooh ooh
It's never the same, love, don't try to make up
[Verse 2]
Middle of the day, middle of the road, I'm dead
They've got a pretty face
But they've got a pretty empty head
And I want to stick around, but damn I'm bored
How the hell do you stay in love?
You're at dinner looking down playing with your knife and fork

[Chorus]
You think you wanna be, you wanna be alone
Just wait until you're crying on the shower floor
It hits you in the chest, 'bout every day you're done
'Cause once you let it go, you better know it's gone
Ooh ooh
It's never the same, uh, yeah, after the breakup
Ooh ooh
It's never the same, love, don't try to make up

You think you wanna be, you wanna be alone
Just wait until you're crying on the shower floor
It hits you in the chest, 'bout every day you're done
'Cause once you let it go, you better know it's gone
Ooh ooh
It's never the same, uh, yeah after the breakup
Ooh ooh
It's never the same, love, don't try to make up

About "The Breakup"

“The Breakup” is the second track on LANY’s self-entitled album, and the 3rd song to be released before the album. This song very cleverly follows “Dumb Stuff,” serving as a contradiction to the previous song about love in its honeymoon stage.

During a concert, lead singer and songwriter Paul Klein mentioned that he wrote this very song while in Stockholm.
