Heartbreaks

 

This life goes howling like a wind

Youd better get along if you can

We come in ringing like a mockingbird song

Crawling up the skies all night long

 

But those heartbreaks, they catch up with you.

You better check up on your lover

Better check up on your friends

Those heartbreaks gonna get you in the end

 

All these roads they lead to Rome

You spend all your money, and you come back home

I took from Peter just to pay back Paul

A little birdie told me shed take care of it all

 

But those heartbreaks, they catch up with you

Better look out where youre going

stead of liking where you been

Those heartbreaks gonna get you in the end

 

Im working for a season I can call my own

In the light of day I wanna rest my bones

Through farms and fields and fallen words

Im gonna keep on ringing like the mockingbird

 

Cause those heartbreaks, they catch up with you

You can tell it to the world

You can tell it to the wind

Those heartbreaks gonna get you

Those heartbreaks gonna get you in the end
