Squeeze – Heartbreaking World lyrics

(difford/holland)

The saddest thing I've ever seen
Was a starving face on my tv screen
The desperate face that I saw
Had my disbelief hanging from my jaw
Our harvest could be shared around
Instead it's buried in the ground
The saddest thing I've ever seen
Was a football fan dying for his team
The toughest thing I have ever known
Was a soldier boy who never made it home
It's fiction live before our eyes
It leaves me cold and my heart cries

The greatest thing I've ever seen
Was a newborn child looking up at me
The greatest sound I've ever heard
Was a baby's cry in this wicked world
The innocence of that cry
Leaves me cold and my heart cries

It's a heartbreaking world if you want it to be
It's a heartbreaking world if you want it to be
It's a heartbreaking world if you want it to be
And you're the one that breaks it for me
