Story

Hey I won't lie to you--we all go through breakups and this was a song I really enjoyed writing--rather than soaking in my sorrows I chose this acerbic tongue-in-cheek blues romp to address my situation...and I think many can relate to it so play this one often when you're in the relationship doldrums!

Lyrics

THE BREAKUP BLUES Tryin' to get myself signed get this girl off my mind But nothin' works Doin' all that I can, find an alternate plan But nothin' works So I drown my sorrows right from the bottle Then I quote some Shakespeare and Aristotle Few more sips and now I'm starting to waddle I need to coddle... But no one is there, why don't she care We used to bare our souls truth or dare But no one is there... She used to be on my side, now I find that she lied No she don't care She used to sing all my songs, now she rights all my wrongs No she don't care There is nothing I can do that will please her Even when I quote from Julius Caesar Maybe I'll just try to tickle and tease her Try to unfreeze her... But she isn't there, why don't she care We used to bare our souls truth or dare But she isn't there So I think I'll take a drive to Manhattan Sing a verse or two from "Nights in White Satin" All I know is I'm in no mood for chattin' It's zero I'm battin'... But she isn't there, why don't she care We used to bare our souls truth or dare But she isn't there (repeat a few times)
