"Heartbroke" as written by and Guy Clark....
Who wouldn't notic the fire in your eyes
Or the bitter direction of impending goodbyes
I'm fallen and folded and wilted in place
At the sight of you standing with streaks down your face

[Chorus]
Heartbroke and runnin' from the reason
Heartbroke Don't give up on believin' in me
Heartbroke Who kept me from leavin' with my
Heartbroke

Pride is a bitch and a bore when your lonely
Sheer madness prevails upon reason to yield
But all is not lost it is only mistaken
That's small consolation but I know just how you feel

[Chorus]

Nobody said it was goin' to be easy
We all have feelings that need a softer touch
But nobody said that it would not be worth it
The human condition continues as such

    General CommentUm, it's not a guest, it's Stefanie Drootin, she's always been in the band. She's an unbelivable bass guitarist, but she has such a beautiful voice that Kasher has her sing on quite a few tracks. I don't know if she's who you've heard sing with Bright Eyes, but she has both played bass and sung for them as a rotating member. Best thing about Saddle Creek bands is that they all know each other so well and they all play and sing on each other's albums; Drootin herself is in like four bands. Also, she is unbelievably hot!

    General CommentSome corrections:

    "you stop stopping by to say hello
    You started starting up each time I phone"

    "That being said I rarely do"

    "you like him he's a lot like you"


    Oh you'll always be Heartbroke.
