"She Broke My Heart, So I Broke His Jaw" as written by and Steve Miller Jason Maffucci....
Take apart every piece of this machine,
Leave my broken body in the street,
Ill stammer drunk and hallow to your doorstep

You'll say
Don't even breath his name
You'll say
Don't you dare

One shot is all that I would need
Tonight Ill have you on your knees
I'll make you see
(I'll have you begging for his life tonight)
One shot is all I'd ever need
Tonight Ill have you on your knees
I'll make you believe

And now you'll see
Just how desperate we both can be
And now you'll see
That you could never live
Live without me

One shot is all I that I would need
Tonight Ill have you on your knees
I'll make you see
(I'll have you begging for his life tonight)
One shot is all I that I would need
Tonight Ill have you on your knees
I'll make you believe [x3]

    General Commentthis song is so great.


    i just think its about his exgirlfriend that he loved a lot moving on to another guy. and how he wants to kill him.
    "One shot is all I that I would need
    Tonight Ill have you on your knees
    I'll make you see
    (I'll have you begging for his life tonight)
    One shot is all I that I would need
    Tonight Ill have you on your knees
    I'll make you believe"

    To have her on her knees, begging for his life.


    "And now you'll see
    Just how desperate we both can be
    And now you'll see
    That you could never live
    Live without me"
    He's talking about how desperate he is to give her back, and by killing him he'll make her see that they should be together and that she cant live without him.

    General Commenti have 2 different perspectives on this song:

    the guys ex-girlfriend has been treated badly by her current boyfriend and the guy is still there for her and wants to protect her....OR...instead of being an ex-girlfriend, the 2 of them are just friends and the guy is protective of her and wants to kill the guy when he treats the girl wrong..

    i could see it either way

    General CommentGreat song, i can relate my ex's boyfriend decided to threaten me and she begged me not to do anything to him, 35 stiches in his head. Great song

    General Commentmmmmmm...drunken fighting makes me laugh sometimes. oh, and it sounds like hes going to SHOOT the other guy. "one shot is all i need" could mean either one chance or one bullet. im going to pretend that its just one chance.

    General Commenti have a slightly different take,
    the song is about one guy, but two sides of him.
    "Ill stammer drunk and hallow to your doorstep"
    shows one side,
    that's the side he's become now that they've broken up; desperate,
    and that's the side that's portrayed as he threatens to kill himself,
    "(I'll have you begging for his life tonight)"
    i'll have you begging for HIS life, as in 3rd person or just the other other side of him
    "And now you'll see
    That you could never live
    Live without me"
    that's how he'll show her

    i know, it's a little out there,
