You come to me with teardrops in your eyes
Expecting me to listen to your lies
You want me to forget and to forgive
Enough, enough, this ain't no way to live

I know you wonder why I'd leave like this
After all the hurt I've put up with
This is the last time, this is the last straw
Too late, too late now it's your time to crawl

Chorus:

She's just the straw that broke the camel's heart
It's not her fault, it's yours we fell apart
No more, I'm done, I want a brand new start
(It's) She's just the straw that broke the camel's heart

I've been grasping at straws for much too long
This ain't the first time you have done me wrong
This time you drew the short end of the straw
The game is over, you have lost it all

Repeat Chorus

She's just the straw that broke the camel's heart
