Lee Ann Womack – Never Again, Again Lyrics

Never again, again.
Once more I’ll let you back in
I know how the story ends
But I can’t help myself
You’ll break my heart I know
Through my tears I watch you go
Then just like it’s always been
I’ll say never again, again

Each time you leave
I say I’ve had enough
But I must be addicted
To your kind of love
I swear to myself
I’m gonna stand my ground
But one look at you
Breaks my defenses down

And here comes never again, again
Once more I’ll let you back in
And just like it’s always been
I’ll say never again, again

And just like it’s always been
I’ll say never again, again
