CRY OF THE BROKEN HEARTED

Judy Brown
took him down
to the Bowery
she said
give me back my heart

so they drive to a club
where they play, "Neo"

but Oh No
just a slow dance
and love comes and goes
you know they never had a chance..

it's the Cry of the broken hearted
that no tears can wash away
you're in love and now you've parted

so she talks to his friends
on the street, she says
"Joe used to sing to me"
out of love
out of tears
she wants to disappear

and now Joe's on the radio
he signed some new deal
before her heart could heal

hear the cry of the broken hearted
she's got nowhere to go
love is here and now departed

she wants to run away
she wants to hide...

it's the cry of the broken hearted
that no tears can wash away
it was over before it started

(Stephen Bishop)
