"When a Heart Breaks" as written by and Ed Cash Dave Barnes....
No one ever told me
It would come to this
What began with such a promise
Would end with such a twist

I lean into the whisper
But I don't hear a thing

It's a tear in the dark
All alone in the car
In pieces, in pieces
It's the sound of mistake
As I lie here awake
Sleepless, sleepless

This is the sound that made
When a heart breaks

Everybody's laughing
Maybe that's just me
Does something unrequited
Mean it will never be

I lean into the whisper
But I don't hear a thing

It's a tear in the dark
All alone in the car
In pieces, in pieces
It's the sound of mistake
As I lie here awake
Sleepless, sleepless

This is the sound that made
When a heart breaks

Please don't leave me here

Life, for now, I've come to fear
You've dropped me off and left me here
With nothing here to find my way
But the lights you take as you pull away

Far ahead the brush is moving
There's others here and good is proving
Nothing's wrong, it's in my mind
Nothing's wrong and I'll be find

It's a tear in the dark
All alone in the car
In pieces, in pieces
It's the sound of mistake
As I lie here awake
Sleepless, sleepless

    General Commentno one has ever painted a more serene and sadly, beautiful song to what a heart breaking is like. this song plays on in my mind as i lament the loss of my baby. this song is everything i am and feel... it describes every way i feel and vividly portrays the emotional horror of waking up and going through each day without her. come back to me baby.
