Bruce Robison – Devil May Care lyrics

The coffee is cold, the story is old,
The letter lies in my hand
The names have been changed,
The words rearranged
My baby left me for another man
My heart should be broken,
My head should be smokin'
My big feet walkin' the floor but I can't find a tear
Now the devil may care but I don't

See I was just readin' 'bout the garden of Eden
Adam he was really in love
They had everything, you could ever dream
And Eve said somehow it just isn't enough
The apple it was picked and then they were evicted
And eve said I need some new clothes
And it's been downhill from there now,
The devil may care but I don't

I'm probably misdirected but a heart must be protected
When angels come down from above
It's highly overrated and it gets so complicated
And I've never been lucky in love

Here is the part where I open my heart,
And tell you where it all went wrong
Yes, there was this girl, she was my whole world
And life was like a silly love song

She said let's be friends, I said define friends
She said I never wanna see you again
And it's been downhill from there now
The devil may care but I don't

Anyone will tell you that a broken heart will kill you
When love comes apart at the seams
A girl will say she loves you and she puts no one above
And then drop you like a sack full of beans

Well, my friends all remind me that
Love will soon find me
And I hope to heaven it don't
A sad state of affairs now, the devil may care
I'm probably misdirected now, the devil may care
It's all downhill from there, the devil may care
But I don't
