heart 

You were always brilliant in the morning 
Smoking your cigarettes, talking over coffee 
You philosophies on art, Baroque moved you, 
You loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones 
As I clumsily strummed my guitar 
You'd teach me of honest things 
Things that were daring, things that were clean 
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean 
So I hid my soiled hands behind my back 
Somewhere along the line I must've gone off track with you 
Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else 
Somebody who gave a damn, 
Somebody more like myself 

These foolish games are tearing me apart 
You thoughtless words are breaking my heart 
You're breaking my heart 

You took off your coat and stood in the rain 
You were always crazy like that
