Nights were made for adventures, the days for plans
Afternoons for temperature drops and that sickening landing
She hated him in spurts, and not just for his wandering loins
She never could trust that region, hell, he was still a smooth skinned boy
A good lookin boy's vicissitudes always left her mouth agape
So his cruelty was a dull surprise from which she could escape
To the image of his eyes well up to a Salvation Army band
Or go misty at Michael Parkinson
when the actor shaped his memories with his hands
Whoever said that broken hearts were, made to mend
Has never seen that girl fall apart,
as the band strikes up Amazing Grace again
The first year was rage, she bought a bike, and with each thrust of a leg
Broke his ribcage while in flagrante on a backpackers bed
In between oxycontin blackouts she'd, drain the tea
Leave it to go cold as she cried long, asleep between her knees
The second year was sadness, bought new bed clothing, new bed wear
the sweat was coagulating with that crap put in his hair
thought bout a dog, or a cat..maybe some wild life
my ventricles are calloused i need to trust a set of eyes
Whoever said that broken hearts were made to mend
Has never seen that girl fall apart,
as the band strikes up Amazing Grace again
Now she aint windswept, winsome an Austen, or a Bronte fair
Spends nights with cuddlin' a five string guitar and a bottle o' Courvoisier
But it's the ones you never expect, the ones you never planned
that'll plant their smirks in yer head..
while you tug at your undulating waistband
Yeh even this big tough ol' world is molten at the core
Volcanoes try to dispose what they can no longer hold
Whoever said that broken hearts were made to mend
Has never seen that girl fall apart, to Michael Parkinson again
yeh, as the band strikes up, Amazing Grace again
