Agnetha Faltskog – Once Burned, Twice Shy lyrics

(Dan Tyler / Richard Spady Brannan)

Once burned, twice shy

I’ve learned, I’ve cried

And I’m never gonna hurt that way again.

Once burned, twice shy

My heart, I’ll hide

If it’s ever gonna have a chance to mend.

Here he comes again, he wants to talk to me

And as he walks to me, I feel so empty inside.

Oh what can I say to him?

He’s the one who hurts me so

Tell him that he’ll have to go

I’ve got no more tears to cry.

Once burned, twice shy

I’ve learned, I’ve cried

And I’m never gonna hurt that way again.

Once burned, twice shy

My heart, I’ll hide

If it’s ever gonna have a chance to mend.

Someday he’ll learn,

Someday he’ll get burned,

And he’ll say:

Once burned, twice shy

I’ve learned, I’ve cried

And I’m never gonna hurt that way again.

Once burned, twice shy

My heart, I’ll hide

If it’s ever gonna have a chance to mend.

Once burned, twice shy

I’ve learned, I’ve cried

And I’m never gonna hurt that way again.

Once burned, twice shy

My heart, I’ll hide

If it’s ever gonna have a chance to mend.
