"Break My Heart Slowly" as written by and Jones....
"It's scary to watch someone you love go into the center of himself and confront his fears...
Fear of failure, fear of death, fear of going insane
You have to fail a little, die a little, go insane a little to come out the other side."

Break my heart slowly
Dora Maar said to me
She came to me in a dream
Reaching out full up with fear

She said:
"Hold on, hold on, hold on to your gun"

It was cold, the night was black
You could feel her freezing hands
Exiting a life of chance
Painted dead a million times

She said:
"Hold on, hold on, hold on to your gun"

She said:
"If your life has changed
If it makes no sense
You can carry on if you still belong
If your life has changed
If it makes no sense
You can carry on
If you still belong

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on

Break my heart slowly
Break my heart slowly
So come one now etc
Break my heart slowly

    General CommentI think this is a brilliant song and an excellent choice of single. I think the quote at the beginning says it all. I believe it's Dora Maar talking about Pablo Picasso

    General CommentIn Nicky's own words on 6Music refering to the sample at the beginning (you can download the interview from nickywire.co.uk)
    "It's Francis Ford Capola's wife, on the documentary of making Apocalypse Now"

    General CommentI've got to agree with Kurtz - a fuller quote is "“Francis is making a film which is a metaphor for a journey into self He has made
    that journey and is still making it. It’s scary to watch someone you love go into
    the centre of himself and confront his fears: fear of failure, fear of death, fear of
    going insane. You have to fail a little; die a little; go insane a little.”
