lyrics

Break Back My Heart
(words and music by Steve Towson)

(Chorus)
Break back my heart
Put it back in place
Leave me here
For somebody new
Break back my heart
Put it back in place
I can't handle this love anymore

No amount of gauze can fix me
You've broken me, broken me into
Many pieces
I cant find the start of me
Each time we're together
I become unglued so

(Chorus)

Some say all in love and war is far
But how can this possibly be true
For you've broken me beyond
All forms of recognition
Now all I wanna be is left alone so

(Chorus)

But through
All of these years and through
All of these times
We know the swallow can't survive the fall
But it will keep on trying
And it does its best
Knowing the answers always nevermore

Like Scott of the Antarctic
So close and yet so far away
And Hinkler and all of those before and after him
Knowing the birth of passion
Always ends in decay so

(Chorus)

But through
All of these years and through
All of these times
We know the swallow can't survive the fall
But it will keep on trying
And it does its best
Knowing the answer's always nevermore
Knowing the answer's always nevermore
Knowing the answer's always nevermore
