"Broken Hearts" as written by and Reid....
I see the fragments of the dreams I used to have
And bits of aspiration lying in the sand
The stained glass wall of love that I cannot see through
Provides the only light here in my lonely room

A breeze reminds me of the changing time and place
A tear that takes forever rolls down your timeless face

I hear that they say that broken hearts will mend
But when they do they're never good as new
I wish right now I could change it back
I never meant to do the things I did to hurt you

I never really thought that it would come to this
Sometimes the things you lose are often the things you miss
I see the reason for things I used to do
They're all transparent now and so I see the truth
I hear they say that broken hearts will men
But when they do they're never good as new
I wish right now that I could change it back
I know you don't believe but I care about you
And I never meant to do those things I did to hurt you

    General CommentThe rhythm alone is worth a listen. The bass guitar carries the song along side a drummer playing deep in the pocket. When the breakdown comes, and the listener finally realizes what the drums have been saying throughout the song, there is nothing left to do but weep. Meanwhile, Vernon Reid manipulates the atmosphere with his guitar so subtly that when he finally does unleash his solo it's like the sun shining on the North Pole. Or something like that. Great f***ing song regardless.

    General CommentI'm glad to see other people enjoy and appreciate this song as much as I do. I've loved this song since I bought "Vivid" on cassette tape when the album was first released. I bought the album for the hits but gave it a listen through and this song has stuck with me from the first note I heard. It's heartbreaking every time I hear it.
