Heartbreak Girl

Heartbreak Girl

Tom Cochrane

She says no one understands
No one sees that point of view
'Less you force them to
'Less you coerce them to
'Less you break their arm, then it's not real
It's so hard to communicate
So hard to relate
Unless you're someone else
Unless you've not come to
Dictate, to dictate to
To tell 'em what to do

I got my own mind
I want to have some fun
I want to be in the sun
I want to be somewhere, where I can be
Who I've got to be
Got to see, got to be real

Where I'm calling from
They can't desert you
Where you're calling from
They like to eat you but they can't hurt you
Don't you know you're just like me when you hurt

[Chorus:]
Heartbreak girl, it's your choice
Break outside, raise your voice
Like the Book of Esther, where she shows her colors
And lets down her hair
Heartbreak girl, if you knew, and if you dare
Don't you know you're just like me when you hurt?

Do the things you've got to do
All those things that come to you
When you hold your head all up and above
And the haze falls away like defenses fall
Write a letter to yourself, and
Do the things you've got to do
To no one else
Turn me upside down, you turn me upside down
You're boundless
Where I'm calling from, I won't desert you
Where you're calling from, they'd like to eat you
But they can't hurt you
Don't you know you're just like me when you hurt?

[Chorus]

Betty Page on a bad day
Dietrich's silent rage that prays
Don Juan's reckless daughter turns the page
To a Celestine, dumbstruck other stage
It's your world, all the time is on your side
Time to shrine, shake the world
Heartbreak girl

Don't you know you're just like me when you hurt?
Turn the world; it's upside down
You turn the world, it's upside down
You turn the world, it's upside down
You turn me upside down
You're boundless

Betty Page on a bad day
Dietrich's silent rage that prays
Don Juan's reckless daughter turns the page
To a Celestine, dumbstruck other stage
It's your world, all the time is on your side
Time to shrine, shake the world
Heartbreak girl
