Performances (111)

Mick came home late last night 
He drank enough beer to take the edge off a knife 
And she opened the door, looking older than before

He said, "Rosey, you're too good a girl" 
She let him in, he lifted up her dress 
Like an apology began to kiss her breast 
And he felt much relieved as the ceiling fan tapped out a broken melody

And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said, 
Making up was always your favorite part 
Well, I ain't young no more 
And I'm sorry will not mend a broken heart."

He came home threw his things on the floor 
She worked up the courage to say what she never had before 
But the words got lost inside 
He got that look in his eye as the sun went shining on

And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said, 
Making up was always your favorite part 
Well, I ain't young no more 
And I'm sorry will not mend a broken heart."

Well the judge knew well Mick was a violent man 
She got a few headlines, she got a slap on the hand 
And there ain't no villains and there ain't no heroes 
People on both sides of the tracks trying to add up a whole bunch of zeros 
And time marches on until it's all gone

And she said, "Do you remember when we were younger and angry words were said, 
Making up was always your favorite part 
Well, I ain't young no more 
And I'm sorry will not mend a broken, a broken heart."
