When A Heart Breaks

Album: Absolutely (1990)

  • An old song on the radio, a faded dream from long ago
    A phone is ringin' but the message can't get through
    A whisper on the wind as the sun goes down
    A teardrop crashes to the ground and

    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks
    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks

    Two people cryin' over broken vows
    A door slams shut on an empty house
    It echoes on down where the well is runnin' dry
    Words lost in sentences we can't understand
    A ring is slippin' off my fingers and slippin' through my hands, and

    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks
    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks

    Blue notes on an old guitar, the silent fire of a distant star
    The unforgiving rhythm of November rain
    Rivers that are runnin' down a broken windowpane

    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks
    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks
    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks
    That's the sound that a heart makes when a heart breaks
