Rufus Wainwright – 14Th Street lyrics

You've got my lost brother's soul
My dear mother's eyes
A brown horse's mane
And my uncle's name
You walked me down 14th Street
With a doctor to meet after thoughts of the grave
In the home of the brave and of the weak

But why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a minor part

I could've clipped and saved and planted in the garden
Damn you, guess I'll have to get a new one

I love to sit and watch you drink
With the reins to the world, gripping a smoke
Vaguely missing link

Don't ever change, you hungry little bashful hounds
I've got the sheep, poor Little Bo Peep has lost and filed for grounds

But why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a minor part

I could've ripped apart and thrown it to the river
Wonder if there's hearts that will deliver

Don't ever change, don't ever worry
Because I'm coming back home tomorrow
To 14th Street where I won't hurry
Where I'll learn how to save not just borrow
And they'll be rainbows
And we will finally know

Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a minor part
(x2)
