Each Other's Broken Heart

Description
Soft Rock first draft mix with Mike Marrington. Apologies to all - I missed out the "s" for "dampness in the walls" so I felt obliged to sing "and just wait until it fall", instead of "falls" as it should be, not only grammatically but also in my own damn lyrics. Guess we're only human, eh? :)

Lyrics
EACH OTHER'S BROKEN HEART

Their love is like a candle
Should've burned out years ago
Yet somehow that flame keeps flickering
It's slow, low glow
She's a tragedy in progress
Eyes that stare into the night
Yet the dreams she knows are hopeless
With no wings to give them flight
He's a man who sees his future
As an open, gaping wound
With no stitch in time to suture
His own certainty he's doomed
They're surrounded by disaster
Like the dampness in the walls
That they cover up with plaster
And just wait until it falls
They have one thing they hold on to
While life's tearing them apart
They know deep down they belong to
Each other's broken heart

Beyond need of conversation
In an emptiness so wide
No required confirmation
For how each feels deep inside
One day something good may happen
They ain't countin' on it soon
Meanwhile, landlords come a-tapping
To that too familar tune
So it's out another back door
To another Greyhound bus
And with nothing to go back for
She no longer makes a fuss
There's a star she pins her dreams on
The star he once helped her choose
It stays with her like a theme song
The way angels sing the blues
And the one thing they hold on to
As they face one more fresh start
It's knowing deep down they belong to
Each other's broken heart

Surrounded like the dampness in the wall and angels singing the blues those are great lyrics. Nice whistling as well! Enjoyed. Cheers Mark

THANKS
Cheers, Stan. Glad you dropped by. I guess, due to the more sombre side of the lyrics, one could call it whistling in the dark. :)
