Another Nail For My Heart  (Album Version)

Another Nail For My Heart (Album Version)

Patti Austin

The case was pulled from under the bed
She made a call to a sympathetic friend
And made arrangements

The door was closed, there was a note
I couldn't be bothered
Maybe I'll choke, no more engagements

With "where-have-you-beens?"
And far away frowns
Trying to be good by not being 'round
And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart

That stupid old bug
That kills only love
I want to be good
Is that not enough?

So play me the song
That makes it so tough
Another nail for my heart
Then play me the song
That makes it so tough
Another nail for my heart

I had excuses, those little boy lies
That she computed by watching my eyes
And told me firmly

She couldn't stand it, I'm bad on her heart
She dropped her make-up and I found the bar
Now it concerns me

I've had a bad time
Now love is resigned
I've been such a fool
I've loved and goodbyed

So here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart
And here in the bar
The piano man's found
Another nail for my heart
