"Another Nail For My Heart" as written by Christopher Henry Difford and Glenn Martin Tilbrook....
The case was pulled from under the bed
She made a call to a sympathetic friend
And made arrangements
The door was closed there was a note
I couldn't be bothered, maybe I'll choke
No more engagements

With where have you been's
And faraway frowns
Trying to be good
By not being 'round

And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart
And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart

That stupid old bug
That kills only love
I want to be good
Is that not enough

So play me the song
That makes it so tough
Another nail for my heart
Then play me that song
That makes it so tough
Another nail for my heart

I had excuses, those little boy lies
That she computed by watching my eyes
And told me firmly
She couldn't stand it, I'm bad on her heart
She dropped her makeup and I found the bar
Now it concerns me

I've had a bad time
Now love is resigned
I've been such a fool
I've loved and goodbyed

So here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart
And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart
And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart
And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart
And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart

    General CommentIt's about a bloke who ruined a relationship by going to the pub all the time. "trying to be good by not being round" suggests that he spent more time out of the house than in it. A common problem, sadly.

    General CommentBearhunter's idea fits with the video...it's mostly a bunch of guys at a bar.

    General CommentBearhunter's got it. He drove her out by not being there, though in his view he was trying to be "good" by keeping out of her way. She couldn't take that, and left, and now all he's got is the bar.

    General CommentI think that this is about of couple who have broken up because he messed up and she can't take anymore, but instead of trying to work it out he lets her go, and now he regrets it because it was all his fault and he acted like he didn't care, but he really did.
