and water will spring from my face

I took a gamble and put my heart on the table.

I lost.

Love hurts. Too much.

I don't remember feeling this desperately heartbroken and sad - ever. I thought I loved before, but I cannot remember ever feeling the way I do now; the way I have felt for months. This must be the first time I've experienced real, true love. And it blows my mind how intense the feelings are; I can't believe that not one person has ever died from a broken heart. It is physically painful.

I've always been annoyed with love/breakup songs/movies, but that was before I could identify with the feeling. I've been prepping for Rock N Roll Armageddon by listening to nonstop music and writing down songs that I might want to play on the air. Two pages of notes later, I notice the heartbreak theme.


I get it now.


Woe is You and Me



oh how bad its been
and how bad it will be
oh how thin things must seem
it's hard for me to say
but one day you'll see me break
and water
will spring from my face
crying how high must we rise
to build a memorial to tall to fall
because it is the ground

oh how bad it's been
and how bad it will be
oh how thin things must seem

i pet every dog i see
i say hello to every cat i meet
yet still i feel incomplete
but i guess that's the way it goes
and there's no reason to know
why no one will save you
when you jump off a boat

oh how bad it's been
and how bad it will be
woe is you and me

then the man sitting next to me
bought me a drink
said excuse me but i think
that you need this more than me
i said thank you sir
i surely do
and how was your voyage
and how 'bout you
he said

oh how bad it's been
and how bad it will be
woe is you and me.
