Someone else can break my heart
by Steven Clotzman

You took the picture from the frame
And the letters from the drawer
Sometimes just to hear your name
Feels like I died in the war
But I am very much alive
And you, ready for a brand new start
And you can’t talk, you’ve got to run
You’re work here is all done
So someone else can break my heart

You said it’s best to let it go
Avoid the questions about what-if
‘Cause life is not a picture show
But a world of shattered myths
You say you've found your Cary Cooper
When I gave my very best Bogart
And it’s time that we’ve moved along
In fact, you’re already gone
Someone else can break my heart

I’ve taken time to think it through
I’ve done the best that I can do
I never planned to be so blue
Or this stuck on you

I tip toe through the neighborhood
But old friends catch me any way
They ask what anybody would
Though I’m still not sure what to say
The answer’s easy enough to find
I’ve put the horse before the cart
And ‘cause I think therefore I am
And you don’t give a damn
Someone else can break my heart

I’ve taken time to think it through
I’ve done the best that I can do
I never planned to be so blue
Or this stuck on you

You said that no one beats the rap
As you went walking out the door
And that love’s just a load of crap
Well, you could have told me that before
But if there’s so much that we don’t know
How’d you suddenly get so smart?
Though it don’t matter anyhow
The truth is with me now
And someone else can break my heart

And I look forward to the day
When you are far away
And someone can break my heart
