lyrics

Heart
Break me wide open
This double life, double face, doublespeak will be the double-death of me
Heart
So much goes unspoken
He and I and you are somehow more than two, less than three

Is it polite not to cry?
Is it polite to quietly die
A thousand little unassuming deaths,
Forfeit my life to a lie?

Heart
I think I'm in trouble
I'm starting to crack from the strain of being what they think I should be
Heart
I'm bent nearly double
Bowing and scraping and scurrying and sorrying to every last man I see

I have been seen and not heard
Like a good child, a--what's the word?
Bent like a supplicant, living my life on my knees
Help me please

Oh, heart it began with such promise
But everything's falling apart
It's be loved or be honest
And I can't live up to the start

Heart
My mind is broken
So you're my only hope and if I'm yours, then I'm sorry, I've let you down too
Heart
Give me some token
Let me know I'm brave enough or sure enough or dumb enough to get through

Oh, heart it began with such promise
But everything's falling apart
It's be loved or be honest
And I can't live up to the start

Heart
Break me wide open
This double life, double face, doublespeak will be the double-death of me
Heart
Here's how it goes
Just nod and smile, no, I'm not upset at all, why should I be?
