    A Stoopid Broken Heart

    A day don’t pass me by that a perfect stranger doesn’t tell me

    That I remind them of someone that they once loved or knew that’s died

    I smile back at them as if to say 'Well, thank you'

    ‘Cause it’s good having been seen for having tried.

    Like you, I’m here to raise a glass to all my lonely foolish dreaming

    The cup spills over sometimes when the troubles start to swell

    No right minded no one wants to break down to a stranger

    So that’s why God made bars and girl bar singers and one-night cheap motels

    But hey you look like you’re just drunk enough that you might understand me

    Let me pull on your coat awhile 'til the night pulls us apart

    There ain’t nobody sober gonna talk to me tonight

    ‘Cause they’ve all heard this one already about me and the girl bar singer and

    A stoopid broken heart

    I know just why I came here but I know I won’t admit it

    At least not until I had a few more than a few

    I’m staring at the stage wondering when she’ll get started

    A few more and every song she sings will be about me, too

    She sings of loneliness like it’s something she invented

    She’s kicking at my head from the inside

    She shatters my illusions that I just might one day be happy

    Then she leaves smiling before I can drink up all I can’t hide

    But friend if you’re me friend you'd think you’d tell me

    But I’m too drunk to listen and the night’s torn me apart

    There ain’t nobody sober gonna talk to me tonight

    ‘Cause they’ve all heard this one already about me and the girl bar singer

    And a stoopid broken heart
