THE BROKENHEARTED

Live 19 May 1978 version


Well, darlin'
Well, then you'll come runnin', oh
I'm glad she found out
Yeah, well, neither one explained
At night I'm prayin'
That you won't say it's over
Because my love for you
Well, there ain't anything close
Now, I'm understanding
At least I said sorry
I feel I'm the brokenhearted
Oh, brokenhearted
Oh, brokenhearted

And tell me that you love me
Yeah, now, baby
The days we miss no longer
And though my love for you
Is just a-growin' stronger
And now I'm cryin'
Well, baby, on your plate
Little girl, right now, I know you
Well, you don't want to see me
Well, I don't understand
How these things get started
And leave us so brokenhearted
Oh, brokenhearted
Oh, brokenhearted

And tell me that you want me
Well, the things that I have done
Somewhere along my way
Ain't nobody there now, babe
The things that I have done
Somewhere along the way
Ain't nobody there now, babe
Ain't nobody there now, ain't none

Don't leave me to the brokenhearted, baby
Please hear me when I say
I love my pretty darling
Though things are wrong, and they're wrong
Believe me, my pretty babe
Ain't no one sayin' so
And knowin' my love for you
You kiss me real slow
And I don't even missing her now
And how these things get started
And leave us so broken hearted
Oh, brokenhearted
Oh, brokenhearted

And tell me that you love me
And tell me that you want me
And tell me that you want me
And tell me that you want
And tell me that you love
And tell me that you want

'Cause baby, it hurts
Baby, it hurts
Well, darling, it hurts
It just keeps on hurtin'
Baby, it hurts
Oh, it hurts
Baby, it hurts
Baby, it hurts
