lyrics

Forty-Five

Can't find the poetry in pain for me, no beauty in the truth,
And now I'm drowning in the water that I walked on in my youth,
Twisted tongue, lips bee-stung.

When my favorite record
Skips on my favorite part
When a broken record
Feels like a broken heart

I was so frozen by tragedy, too angry, couldn't mend
In the years that burned like the letters that I always meant to send.
Had no choice; lost my voice.

When my favorite record
Skips on my favorite part
When a broken record
Feels like a broken heart

Wrote One-Note-Johnny's symphony
On the back of a postage stamp.
Forty-five French Revolutions
But the chords still come out damp.

When my favorite record
(Don't want this feeling to end)
Skips on my favorite part
(Don't want to lose you again)
When a broken record
(I don't know if I can mend)
Feels like a broken heart
