My baby buys me roses...
He writes me love notes too...
He tells me that I'm pretty...
And does everything he's supposed to do...
He spent all his money...
to buy me a diamond ring...
And I know deep down inside...
That he'd give me anything...
But my heart has been severed...
Damaged beyond repair...
It's not my baby's fault...
And it's really not fair...

I'm sorry I can't love me like you do...
And I'm sorry I can't let you love me too...
I love you with all of my heart,
but I can only give you a part-
'cuz the rest of it is broken and blue.

Broken and blue... Broken and blue...
Yeah, the best of me is broken and blue.
