Lyrics TONIGHT MY HEART IS BEATING LOW
AND MY HEAD IS BOWED,
YOU'VE BEEN SEEN WITH MY BEST FRIEND
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN.
I DON'T MIND THIS WAITING,
DON'T MIND THIS RUN AROUND,
BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA CHEAT ON ME,
DON'T CHEAT IN OUR HOMETOWN.

HOW CAN I STAND UP TO MY FRIENDS
AND LOOK 'EM IN THE EYE?
ADMIT THE QUESTION THAT I KNOW
WOULD BE NOTHING BUT LIES.
YOU SPEND ALL YOUR PAST TIME
MAKING ME A CLOWN,
BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA CHEAT ON ME,
DON'T CHEAT IN OUR HOME TOWN.

NOW THERE ARE NO SECRETS
IN THIS LITTLE COUNTRY TOWN,
EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE
FOR MILES AND MILES AROUND.
YOUR BRIGHT EYES AND YOUR SWEET SMILE
ARE DRIVING ME INSANE,
YOU THINK IT'S SMART
TO BREAK MY HEART
AND RUN DOWN MY NAME.

HOW CAN I STAND UP TO MY FRIENDS
AND LOOK 'EM IN THE EYE?
ADMIT THE QUESTION THAT I KNOW
WOULD BE NOTHING BUT LIES.
YOU SPEND ALL YOUR PAST TIME
MAKING ME A CLOWN,
BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA CHEAT ON ME,
DON'T CHEAT IN OUR HOME TOWN.

Lyrics THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
ONE HEART
WILL HAVE TO BREAK.

verse 1:
TONIGHT AS I SIT
BY MY WINDOW
WATCHING THE PEOPLE
GO BY,
I'M TRYING
TO REACH A DECISION
BUT I KNOW
I CAN'T DO
WHAT'S RIGHT.

Chorus:
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
SHOULD I TAKE?
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
WILL I BREAK?

verse 2:
IF I CHOOSE
THE ONE
THAT I SHOULD CHOOSE,
THEN THE OTHER HEART
WOULD BREAK.
BUT IF I LEAVE THEM BOTH
THEN I'D SUFFER,
WHICH HEART WILL PAY
FOR MY MISTAKE?

Chorus:
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
SHOULD I TAKE?
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
WILL I BREAK?

verse 3:
TO ONE OF THESE HEARTS
I'M TIED TO,
AND TO THE OTHER HEART
MY LOVE IS TRUE.
EITHER WAY I GO
I'LL BRING SORROW,
ONE HEART
WILL BE BROKEN
IN TWO.

Chorus:
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
SHOULD I TAKE?
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
WILL I BREAK?
