David Byrne & St. Vincent – The One Who Broke Your Heart lyrics

All the beautiful people, they did some work on your face
And in that struggle for freedom, everyone looks the same (That's right)
And everybody is pregnant and everybody's in pain
We're all pushing and shoving to make those human beings
Although they say you're aristocracy (That's what they say) we all deserve to wear that crown
Sing along with the one who broke your heart (You know you do)
Sing it loud, it'll keep you safe and warm (That's right)

In the garden of Eden on a hot Summer day, we were totally naked outside that small cafe
Am I the one you imagined?
Am I heaven or hell?
But no one else can compare to the way you love yourself (You know you do)
I came to tell you on this bicycle
The trees and houses say, “Hello”
Sing along with the one who broke your heart
Sing it loud, it will keep you safe and warm (That's right)
After you dream in the middle of the night (I guess I did)
I sing along to open up those spirit eyes

Faster and faster, no one's holding the wheel
Interstate highway through those city and fields
Your friends and family, they tell your secrets to me
It's not so impressive until they all disappear

Sing along with the one who broke your heart (You know you'll do it)
After that dream where you got that man you love
