"Break Your Heart" as written by and Brian Fallon....
It would break your heart, if you knew me well.
See, I have run so far that I've lost myself.
And there are things I have seen that I never will tell.
They drove me out of my mind and inside of myself.

And oh, my my, it would break your heart,
If you knew how I loved you, if I showed you my scars,
If I played you my favorite song lying here, in the dark.
Oh my my, it would break your heart.

It would bring you to tears, if you knew what I know.
See, I spent all of my money on second hand love
But I trusted somebody way and back when.
And I loved her like fire until it drove me insane.

And oh, my my, it would break your heart,
If you knew how I loved you, if I showed you my scars,
If I played you my favorite song lying here in the dark.
Oh my my, it would break your heart.

And you can lean on me until your heart don't beat,
I'll leave you lying there on the floor.
You can lean on me until your heart don't beat,
I'll leave you spinning there on the floor.

And oh, my my, it would break your heart,
If you knew how I loved you, if I showed you my scars,
If I played you my favorite song lying here in the dark.
Oh my my, it would break your heart.

And oh, my my, it would break your heart,
If you knew how I loved you, if I showed you my scars,
If I played you my favorite song lying here in the dark.
Oh my my, it would break your heart.

Until it breaks your heart.

    General CommentThe beginning melody of this song reminds me of Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down." Even the phrasing at times is very Tom Petty-ish.

    General CommentI practiced "Casanova, Baby" on acoustic guitar for six months straight before revealing it to my love's true passion. It did not work out well, but I still drove her home.

    It drove me out of my mind, however, and so it also drove me deep inside of myself. The truth of love can sometimes become the most elusive thing in the most beautiful places imaginable. Love can be like fire sometimes, yes.

    Cleansing and destructive.

    Oh. My. My.
