Heartbreaker

Ok, so the lyrics to this song by Whiskeytown really striks a chord with the whole situation that I have gone through with John. In fact it was the first song of the sappy mix CD that I made for him before he took off to Utah. To me, it's about getting into something that you know you probably shouldn't, but you do it anyway.


Excuse Me If I Break My Own Heart
Music and Lyrics by Ryan Adams


Well excuse me if I break my own heart
It was mine from the finish, I guess,
It was mine from the start.
The situation just don't seem so ***damn smart
The situation is tearing me apart
So, you'll have to excuse me if I break my own heart

Well excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
Some things aren't born too strong, have to learn how to fight.
Situation keeps me drinking every ***damn day and night.
The situation don't seem so right.

So excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
Well, excuse me if break my own heart tonight.
After all, it was mine.
After all, it was mine.
After all it was mine.
Can I have it back sometime?

So if the rain falls down on your Mississippi town
Let your eyes drift easy into mine
If the rains falls down on your Mississippi town
Let your eyes drift into mine
You're on the road but your diary entry reads blank
Is this some sort of joke to you?
Is this some sort of joke to you?

Well, excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
Well, excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
After all it was mine
After all it was mine
After all it was mine
Can I have it back sometime?
