"It's A Heartache" as written by Steve Wolfe and Ronnie Scott....
It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late
Hits you when you're down

It's a fool's game
Nothing but a fools game
Standing in the cold rain
Feeling like a clown

It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Love him til your arms break
Then he lets you down

It ain't right with love to share
When you find he doesn't care for you
It ain't wise to need someone
As much as I depended on you

It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late
Hits you when you're down

It's a fool's game
Nothing but a fools game
Standing in the cold rain
Feeling like a clown

It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it's too late
Hits you when you're down

    General CommentVery good song. Basically I think it means that she really fell in love with somebody who just wouldn't love her back and it is, seriously, a heartache. You're in love with someone and then you find out that it will never work out because it was a game, nothing but a game...

    My InterpretationI'm a husband trapped in a big "Heartache,' and man, does this song HURT! I bleed all over the place when I hear this song.
    Forty years with my man, the last 25 falling apart. [Ya, I said "MAN" - gay couples ain't so different from breeder couples. If anything, our breakups are tougher, with all that testosterone roaring around, wreaking destruction X 2!! Two men can beat on one another real good.]

    I say I'm "trapped" because we're a prosperous professional couple with reputations and appearances to keep up. Being accustomed to having money and the comforts it brings, we just can't split our assets/finances in half. That would mean a major downgrade of Lifestyle for both of us. Can't do that, no way.

    "It ain't wise to need someone as much as I depended on you" < This really applies double-powered for men in our society. It's the old stereotype: "Man" as tough, rough and, especially, independent. Macho Man,ya know?

    F*k!
