Heartbreak

HEARTBREAK
words and music by Shellen Lubin

I thought Iíd finally given up that dream
I thought my heart was mended
Then you walk in and freedom is a word
That I just pretended

Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
Maybe the only way I know to live is falling apart
Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
ĎCause it seems like Iíve always got a broken heart

I know thereís some whoíd love to treat me right
Whoíd give me what I needed
When you wonít give me anything
No matter how much Iíve pleaded

Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
Maybe the only way I know to live is falling apart
Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
ĎCause it seems like Iíve always got a broken heart

Donít tell me youíre not good enough for me
ĎCause I will never hear you
Iíve given over every other dream
Just to be near you
Donít tell me that youíll never change your ways
I know it all too well
I had my chance for heaven
But Iíve chosen hell

Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
Maybe the only way I know to live is falling apart
Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
ĎCause it seems like Iíve always got a broken heart

Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
Maybe the only way I know to live is cut right in two
Maybe the only way I know to live is heartbreak
ĎCause no matter what I do, I canít get over, canít get over
Canít get over you

This song was not written about a person--not a romantic involvement, not a friend, not a family member . . . this song (yes, purposely deceptively) was written about being an artist in the world--about the music business, the theatre business, the arts in a world of capitalism and commercialism . . .

Now you know.
