lyrics

I don't know
how long I've been alone now
oh and I
I don't know, oh no
how it ended up this way

oh and I
I don't care
who will break my heart the next time around
oh and all I can say
is that this loneliness makes me scared

anyone will do for a heartache, hm
and if it's not you
let it be anyone but you

anyone will do fine for a heartache, yeah
and if it's not you
let it be someone, anyone but you

I don't see (I don't see) oh no no
what becomes of the broken hearted (no no)
no and I
I don't see (sometimes I don't see)
see them walking down the same old dead end street as me, no

oh and I
I'm so tired (I'm so tired)
just to wallow around in all of this sorrow
oh and all, all this time (all this time)
ain't enough time (no no no no) to ease the pain

anyone will do, oh for a heartache, mm
and if it's not you (if it's not you)
let it be anyone, anyone but you

anyone will do, oh for a heartache, mm
and if it's not you (if it's not you)
let it be someone, anyone, anyone

oh, no time waits for anyone
no it won't wait for anyone (no no no...)
who waits in vain

anyone will do, oh, for a heartache (for a heartache) baby
and if it's not you (hm)
let it be anyone, oh anyone but you

anyone will do, yes! for a heartache
and if it's not you (if it's not you)
let it be someone (someone)
anyone, anyone
let it be someone, anyone (someone), anyone (anyone)
but you (hm)
