While waiting in line to get my busking permit I was joking with a fellow busker about "broken heart songs". We thought it would be a good idea to write a tune about a heart that is not that badly off, instead of the usual dreary heart smashed into pieces vibe. This is what happened!


The maimed heart rag

My heart ain't broke its just heavily maimed
My will ain't broke it's just effectively tamed
Has any body made a bandaid for a wounded pride?

It feels so sore but it could have been worse
Its like driving in a combi van instead of a herse
I'm lucky I'm alive cos a weaker man would have died

My hearts alive and its pumping because you aint gonna be jumping on it no more no no more
I know my heart is sore but it's ready for some more after I bandage it a little bit and pick it up off the floor.
