The Heartbreakers Spike

Oh, we got another one, just like the other ones

Another bad ass, another troublemaker

I’m scared, ain’t you boys scared?

I wonder if he’s gonna show us what bad is?

Boys, we gotta man with a dog collar on

You think we oughta’ trow ol’ Spike a bone?

Hey Spike what do you like?

Hey Spike what do you like?

Here’s another misfit, another Jimmy Dean

Bet be’s got a motorbike,

What’a y’all think?

Bet if we good we’ll get a ride on it

If be ain’t too mad about the future

Matbe we oughta help him see

The future ain’t what it used to be

Hey Spike, you’re scarin’ my wife

Hey Spike what do you like

Please Spike, tell us ’bout life

The Heartbreakers A One Story Town

I’m for standin’ up, I’m breakin’ free

I’m don’t want fate handed down to me

Yeah I’m for movin’ on, try another town

[Chorus:]

Oh, I’m lost in a one story town

Where everything’s close to the ground

Yeah the same shit goes down

Nothing turns around

It’s one story town

She was only severteen

But I held her to her word

‘Had to push her luck

Thought she couldn’t burn

No it didn’t hurt me

When she had to leave

She had a far away feeling

Wasn’t part of me

[Chorus]

The Heartbreakers Something Big

Well It didn’t feel like Sunday

Didn’t feel like June

When he met his silent partner in that lonely corner room

That over looked the marquee

Of the Plaza all-adult

And he was not lookin’ for romance

Just someone he could trust

[Chorus:]

And it wasn’t no way to carry on

It wasn’t no way to live

But he could put up with it for a little while

He was workin’ on something big

Speedball rang the night clerk

Said, “Send me up a drink”

The night clerk said “It’s Sunday man, …wait a minute

Let me think

There’s a little place outside of town that might

Still have some wine”

Speedball said, “Forget it, can I have an outside line?

[Chorus]

It was Monday when the daymaids

Found the still made bed

All except the pillows that lay stacked

Up at the head

And one said, “I know I’ve seen his face

I wonder who he is?

And the other said, “He’s probably just another clown

Workin’ on something big”

The Heartbreakers Takin’ My Time

Takin’ my time

I’m slowin’ down a little bit

Takin’ my time

Slowin’ down a little bit

Yeah when I was a young boy

Honey my fuse was lit

Yeah when I was a young boy

Honey my fuse was lit

Losin’ my way

To somethin’ stronger than me

Losin’ my way

To somethin’ stronger than me

Scares me to think about

What’s on the road after me

Yeah it scares me to think about

What’s on the road after me

The Heartbreakers Let Yourself Go

Rain on the river I’m soakin’ wet

Waitin’ on friend who ain’t come yet

And he might not get here for three or four days

Got to make a little bit go a long way

I’ve got a blond headed woman who likes to come around

Cute little hippy girl lives in town

Brings a bag a records and she plays ’em ’til dawn

Give me little lovin’ then she got to go home

When times are hard

When you start feelin’ low

Let yourself go

When the river’s risin’ and the world feels cold

Let yourself go

Let yourself go

I got a 442 sittin’ in the sun

Well it’s been ten years since she used to run

Man she was a beauty in ’69

But there ain’t no more comin’ down the line

When times are hard

And you start feelin’ low

Let yourself go

When the river’s risin’ and your world feels cold

Let yourself go

Honey let yourself go

The Heartbreakers Flirting With Time

A coyote ran across the road

On the move without a home.

A flash of light reminded me of you.

This could well be your last stand.

Hold the sunlight in your hand.

Spread your fingers, feel the sand fall through.

I’ve done all I can do. Now it’s up to you.

[Chorus:]

You’re flirting with time baby

Flirting with time, but maybe,

Time baby, is catching up with you.

Shadowmen talk a real good game.

Every punchline has your name.

You cried out and no one came to you.

I’ve done all I can do. Now it’s up to you.

[Chorus]

Should be more to learn from this.

Can’t say I know what it is.

No difference tween a hit or miss,

It’s true.

I’ve done all I can do. Now it’s up to you.

[Chorus 2x]

The Heartbreakers Won’t Last Long

You and me been over this ground

Over this ground before

I can’t explain

I can’t explain

I can’t explain anymore

Oh it’s hard to watch you go

I’m down but it won’t last long

I’m down but it won’t last long

Don’t let me down

Don’t let me down

Don’t let me down like this

It’s not the same

Over and over

Over and over again

Yeah, this is not my day

I’m down but it won’t last long

I’m down but it won’t last long

Half my brain has gone away

Half my brain has gone

So far away

Don’t let me down

Don’t let me down

Don’t let me down again

Don’t shake me up

Don’t burn me out

I’m hurt and you won’t let me in

Yeah, this is not my day

I’m down but it won’t last long

I’m down but it won’t last long

The Heartbreakers Dogs On The Run

Well we come with what was on our backs

Yeah, when the leaves had died and all turned black

Back when the wind was cold and blew them ’round

When we laid our blankets on the ground

Yeah and I woke up feelin’ hungry

Lookin’ straight into the sun, and left a cold night on the ground

Like a dog on the run

I fell overboard and washed up on the beach

Yes, let waves and sand roll over me

I was helped to be home of a young bleached blonde

Who said honey I discovered early in life there’s ways og getting

Anything I want, some of us are different

It’s just something in our blood, there’s no need for explanations

We’re just dogs on the run

The room was painted blue and grey

All my meals were served on a silver tray

Oh she would laugh, and light my cigaretts

She said honey ain’t it funny how a crowd gathers around

Anyone living life without a net?

And how they’ll beg you for the answer

But it won’t ever be enough, there’s no way you could ever tell ’em

It’s just dogs on the run
