From the recording A Stoopid Broken Heart

Lyrics

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
