Talking to an old friend yesterday
She told me how her life’s gone astray
Her hubby has walked out the door
She tried to smile but her hearts still sore
What could I tell her what could I say
She’s not the only one ended up this way

Gonna meet her for a drink downtown
Talk about what goes up then crashes down
But I can’t change a damn thing
Just gonna sit back and listen to her heart sing
A song of tears a song of joy
All this pain for one stupid boy
Chorus
I can’t give you the answer your seeking
This world is full of people weeping
Just because I look like I don’t have a care
What makes you think I aint paid my fair share
I’ve learnt to except the past
Whatever pain it gives never lasts

Talking to an old flame the other day
She told me it’s a shame I went away
Had to remind her It was she who strayed
And life’s too short to throw it all away
Guess we both survived
To see another day

Everyone’s seeking for there own answers
Some go to church others to table dancers
If we could all see a road so clear
Would there be anything left to fear
Gotta take the smooth with the rough
It will all work out soon enough


Chorus
I can’t give you the answer your seeking
This world is full of people weeping
Just because I look like I don’t have a care
What makes you think I aint paid my fair share
I’ve learnt to except the past
Whatever pain it gives never lasts

Broken too

I can’t find the words you seek

My heart feels like an antique

Dusty and out of use

Torn and twisted from abuse

I know what I’ve put you through

But babe I’m broken too

Can you walk with me for a while

Maybe between us we can force a smile

As our lives crumble around us

And our dreams turn to dust

We’ve stuck together like glue

But babe I know your broken too

What’s our next move out of this trap

Six feet under laying on our back?

I can’t face my empty room

Could we find a brand new tune

Cos somehow we’ve gone askew

Broke each others heart clean in two

From lovers to friends

Too late to make amends

That sadness lingers in the air

It’s so hard to bare

Wish I learnt to say a prayer

Something to see us through

To ease the pain of being broken in two
