Album: The Futurist (2004)
  • In love with a broken heart
    You fell in love with a broken heart

    Love in these modern times
    There'll be someone new every night
    With some other love yarn
    To wrap my harms around
    No one else can understand
    (Hold me) I can't hear you
    (Trust me) not about you

    In love with a broken heart
    Think I leave today, I cover it all this way
    You fell in love with a broken heart
    Every earthly breath, a lifeless testimony
    In love with a broken heart
    (Don't you know)

    Love in these modern times
    I'll become what your first class said
    I'm no light weight, I'll find time to throw us down
    You'd feel my medicine's side effect
    Fink I'll grab some magazine
    (I know you) never seen me
    (promised you) you believed me?

    In love with a broken heart
    -think I leave today, I cover it all this way-
    You fell in love with a broken heart
    -every earthly breath, a lifeless testimony-
    You fell in love with a broken heart
    -another lifeless testimony
    (and it shows)

    Oh please machine, let's keep this terminal clean
    I'll see your face in every cloud
    Down a Dewar's laugh out loud
    Fly girl shouts to keep it down
    Paddy's wagon draws a crowd

    (Save your days) I don't save days
    (Any way) I think...leave days

    God grant me the strength to accept the things I can change
    And change them
    (just for the last time)

    (Show me) I can't miss you

    In love with a broken heart
    Face in every cloud, makes me laugh out loud-
    You fell in love with a broken heart
    Shouts to keep it down, wagon draws a crowd-
    In love with a broken heart
    (Don't you know)
    Lifeless testimony

    You fell in love with a broken heart
    (And it shows)
    Lifeless testimony

    In love with a broken heart
    In these modern times, what your first class said,
    Time to throw us down, medicine's side effectWriter/s: SARAH THERESA HUDSON, TREY VITTETOE, SLOBODAN SVRDLAN, PAUL J. VAN RENSBURG
