1965 September 30-October 1: New York with Orace Hott orchestra
Breakdown and let it all out
Breakdown and let it all out

I've held back my tears just as long as I could
Now my eyes can see it's all over for you and me
And holding back ain't gonna do no good
So I'm gonna breakdown and let it all out
Breakdown and let it all out

I've hidden my heart too many times before
Now my aching heart knows that we're apart
I can't hide it anymore
So I'm gonna breakdown and let it all out
Breakdown and let it all out

I remember when you used to love me
And oh how sweet it was
But it's not enough just to remember cos
What good is the past
Once upon a time

Cos all those old memories
Can't set my heart at ease
So before I lose my mind yeah
I'm gonna breakdown and let it all out

My eyes are open and now I see
It's all over for you and me
Breakdown and let it all out
Breakdown and let it all out

Now my aching heart knows that we're apart
Breakdown and let it all out
Breakdown and let it all out
All those old memories
Can't set my heart at ease
Breakdown and let it all out
Breakdown and let it all out
