I Know About Your Broken Heart      Susan Kane

 

Sometimes I wish I worked in a factory           

Used my hands all day long

Sometimes I wish I worked in a factory                       

Calm my mind with a metallic song               

I know about your broken heart

Nobody knows about my broken heart

 

Sometimes I wish I had my own secrets

I’d hold them close to my bones

Sometimes I wish I had my own secrets

Something deep to call my own

I know about your broken heart

Nobody knows about my broken heart

 

You don't know how dirty your hands are until you wash them

Pearly grey water leaves a black ring around your sink

If you took the time and care to repair everything you’d ever broken

Who would care or notice when it’s all gone in a blink?

 

 

Sometimes I wish I could go out in the wide world

Who would see me, who would call

Sometimes I wish I could go out in the wide world

One more pale flower, flower on the wall

But I know about your broken heart

Nobody knows about my broken heart

My broken heart, broken heart, heart
