I put on a record
It was called “Sad Songs For Sullen Lovers”
I listened to it once
It took me all day to recover

I put on a record
It was called “Sad Songs for Savage Lovers”
Called you up, ed Told you what I thought
And then I ran for cover

I put on a record
Called “Dirty Songs For Sad Lovers”
It wasn’t long before you called
And said “Please, approved please come over
And tell me
Did your broken heart make you who you are?”

I put on a record
It said “Love me once, then leave forever”
We are so pure
We can learn both joy and rage together

You took off the record
And said “What’s your rush?
As if things won’t break in their own time
Without you there to push them

Forget about the record
Forget about the song
Let’s concentrate on what we got right
And what we’re still doing wrong.”

Did your broken heart make you who you are?

You are capable of anything, aren’t you?
You learned it from someone
Someone learned it from you
Cruelty is a virus
I know, it’s in my blood too
You think you know someone
But you never know what they will do

Did your broken heart make you who you are?
Can your broken heart tell me more about who you are?
Then tell me all about it
If your broken heart can tell me more about who you are
Then go ahead, tell me all about it.
