Not that this ever happened to me, but . . .

Lyrics

I always figured if I kept my eyes open, I could steer around trouble in time.

I was so careful, so wary, absolutely cautionary; never driftin’ over the line.

Well, I must have been distracted; by the way that I reacted

You’d have thought I was asleep at the wheel.

Full-force, throttle stuck, Love hit me like a Mack truck.

You can’t guess how awful I feel!

 

Hit-and-Run Heartbreak has left me hurtin’;

She barreled in from out of the blue.

Hit-and-Run Heartbreak – it’s for certain

That my ego was left battered and bruised.

She put me out of commission; it was total demolition;

I’m disabled from my head to my toes.

Hit-and-Run Heartbreak – how much can one heart take?

I can’t risk another of those!

 

By the time I was aware that she was even there

The situation had spun out of control.

She had blinded me like high beams; scary like a bad dream;

I’d never met a woman so bold.

I still have memories of her eyes as they cruelly hypnotized

And persuaded me to let down my guard.

Then she suddenly disappeared before my vision cleared;

Didn’t realize she had hit me so hard.       

 

Well, Hit-and-Run Heartbreak has left me hurtin’ . . .

Has anybody seen her?  She sure took me to the cleaners!

I’ve got whiplash from my head to my toes . . .

 

She shattered my nerves; crumpled my cockiness;

Crippled any swagger I had.

Then she flattened my spirits, dented my confidence;

My heart got busted up bad!

But I really must admit even though I took a hit

I might be willing to forgive and forget

If I got a second chance to maneuver with romance

And return to the scene of the crash

 

Hit-and-Run Heartbreak has left me hurtin’;

She barreled in from out of the blue.

Hit-and-Run Heartbreak  -- maybe I was flirtin’ –

But my ego was left battered and bruised.

Can I buy some insurance – just a little reassurance --

This’ll never ever happen again?

Hit-and-Run Heartbreak -- how much can one heart take?

I never thought I’d get mine to mend!

Well, Hit-and-Run Heartbreak – how much can one heart take?

Do you think I should gamble again!
