Lyrics

Heartache breaks open at dawn

When you wake and he’s still really gone

And each hour you struggle the more

To find what drove him away

 

But he was no good for you dear

You were kind, he was cavalier

Face the truth, you were just his next score

He never intended to stay

 

Now you need some help to start a new direction

But before the healing grief must have its say

 

Love disappears, love disappears

Love fades away, drowned in margaritas and tears

 

Don’t think of the time that you’ve lost

How spring faded to love’s first frost

Friends tell you they’ve been there before

But you’re still frozen within

 

But the drink’s finally taking its hold

And the sting of the lime it makes you feel bold

It wasn’t love, just a little war

And you promise you won’t let him win

 

With dizzy eyes you look out for the next one

To come and take your bruised heart for a spin

 

Love disappears, love disappears

Love fades away, drowned in margaritas and tears

 

Now soon again you’ll dream about perfection

A lover who will comfort and erase

But you can’t avoid the risk to find connection

So now you climb into another a new embrace

 

Love disappears, love disappears

Love fades away, drowned in margaritas and tears
