about

Special double single (with Midway) for Record Store Day 2018

lyrics

Every blessed time I've tasted something sweet
It's yielded to a bitter aftertaste
Every time the sugar melted on my tongue
It dissolved into a weak acidic waste

For every lonely night, there's been a lovely prelude
Anticipation wantoning the blood
Every time I've wept at being alone
There's been a joyous wretched moment when I've known:

Here comes heartbreak
I know it by its step on the landing
I know it by its knock on the door
Here comes heartbreak
It wears the guise of understanding
But I've seen its face before

Sometimes it wears a freckled grin, a quick conspiracy
Sometimes it gazes long and looks away
Sometimes it makes me think, Oh, this is it, I bet
When we were saying goodbye from the moment we met

Here comes heartbreak
I know it by its step on the landing
I know it by its knock on the door
Here comes heartbreak
It wears the guise of understanding
But I've seen its face before

Oh, maybe this time will be special, though
Maybe this time things will change
Maybe this time is worth the hope
Maybe things won't turn out so strange

Here comes heartbreak
I know it by its step on the landing
I know it by its knock on the door
Here comes heartbreak
It wears the guise of understanding
Says it won't be too demanding
But it's like a stranger with candy, honey
I've seen its face before
