Various Artists – Broken Heart lyrics

A broken heart be lovely
Broken on the ground
A knife stuck in the ribs of me
Would better than be found

Hanging tree blowing gently
A noose would be ignored
Than to stand upon the receiving end
Of the right hand of the Lord

Like a thirsty cowboy
In a lake his tongue does rest
Jumps in and he cannot swim
Drowns himself to death

Or a frozen mountaineer
He chugs up to a stop
Catching his boot heel in a rock
Two miles from the top

An Olympic super swimmer
Whose belly doesn't flop
A super race car driver
Whose pit, it can't be stopped

A honey dripping hipster
Whose bee cannot be bopped
It's better to be rolled in oats
Than from the roll be dropped

Broken heart would satisfy
Broken in a mess
A seven eye would gratify
My soul, I must confess

I'd rather have no eyes at all
Be blind upon the floor
Than to stand upon the receivin' end
Of the right hand of the Lord

Than to stand upon the receivin' end
Of the right hand of the Lord
