"Broken Heart" as written by and Jason Pierce....
Though I have a broken heart
I'm too busy to be heartbroken
There's a lot of things that need to be done
Lord I have a broken heart

Though I have a broken dream
I'm too busy to be dreaming of you
There's a lot of things that I gotta do
Lord I have a broken dream

And I'm wasted all the time
I've gotta drink you right off of my mind
I've been told that this will heal given time
Lord I have a broken heart

And I'm crying all the time
I have to keep it covered up with a smile
And I'll keep on moving on for a while
Lord I have a broken heart

    General CommentIt sounds like he's trying to keep himself busy so that he can forget her, but deep down he knows that he won't be able to. Possibly he's in denial.

    General CommentI love the fragility of this song. Jason Pierce sings it in such a soft, sensitive way, he really sounds like he means it. Makes the song really painful, but beautiful.

    General CommentHow does a heart heal?

    My favorite line:
    "And I'm wasted all the time/I got to drink you right off of my mind/I've been told that this will heal given time/But I have a broken heart."

    General CommentI agree with daffy - I think everyone can relate.

    we all get our hearts ripped in half at some point or another - and then we try to distract ourselves with other things (or substances). this song shows a person saying "yeah ... I'm really ok ... alright, maybe not." he's saying how he just can't be dwelling on this, but, you know, the heart will do what it will. great song.

    General CommentPierce really does mean it because the song (and the album) is about his break-up with Kate Radley, who was also a part of the band. She's shacked up with Richard Ashcroft now.
