Here Comes Heartache   Year: 2005 | Run Time: 5:25

Written by Bill Mallonee for CyBrenJoJosh (BMI)

one more lonely trail
one more busted guardrail
one more safety net shot to hell
you'd have thought after the last time
i'd have learned to read the road signs
maps they are of no use to the blind
your cab speeds away in the rain
but there's a guest that will soon be showing up again
i recognize her all-too-familiar face

here comes heartache

who knows how we got this far
a black leather jacket and a fast car
wasn't it always written in the stars
you'd have thought after such a common thing
the books and pills and the distractions
i'd have found a way back to the start
you delivered your goodbye with many a tear
academy awards await you dear
one for the best supporting fake

it was your movie from the very start
you needed a lead so i tried out for the part
forgot all my lines so i gave you my heart
i got a review that you wrote
i keep it in the pocket of an old coat
what am i supposed to do with any of this
and the whole thing hits like a tidal wave
the pain the shame the fear and the rage
when that wall hits the beach and we break

Did You Know?

The middle three lines of the second verse originally were as follows: "ah but having said all of that / pretty girl I can only fall back / on a love you said that would stand up forever."

Appeared On…
