Heartbroke

Album: Highways & Heartaches (1982)
  • Well, who wouldn't notice the fire in your eyes?
    Or the bitter direction of impending goodbyes?
    I'm fallin', I'm folded, I'm welded in place,
    At the sight of you standin' with streaks down your face.

    You got your heart broke,
    Go runnin' from the reason.
    Get your heart broke,
    Don't give up on believin' in me.
    Heart broke, who kept me from leavin',
    With my heart broke?

    Well, cryin' when you're rich is a poor if you're lonely,
    Sheer madness prevails upon reason to yield.
    But all is not lost, it is only mistaken.
    A small consolation but I know just how you feel.

    You got your heart broke,
    Go runnin' from the reason.
    Get your heart broke,
    Don't give up on believin' in me.
    Heart broke, who kept me from leavin',
    With my heart broke?

    Well, nobody said it was goin' to be easy.
    We all have our weak sides and need soft good touchin'.
    Nobody said that it would not be worth it,
    But human conditions can give you as such.

    You got your heart broke,
    Go runnin' from the reason.
    Get your heart broke,
    Don't give up on believin' in me.
    Heart broke, who kept me from leavin',
    With my heart broke?

    You kept me from leavin',
    With my heart broke
    With my heart broke.
    With my heart broke.
    You got your heart broke. Writer/s: Guy Clark
