You Broke This Heart Of Mine

This song was originally written in February as part of the FAWM songwriting challenge. This song encompassed three sub challenges from FAWM. These were to write a song with just one chord, write a song with cowbell as the main instrument and to write an anti-valentine song. It was originally recorded as just an acoustic demo with cowbell for percussion. I decided to use Band in a Box to do a proper accompaniment for it and I plan to use it on my next album. My idea for this song was originally a song about heart break but somewhere along the way it took a dark turn and entered the realms of paranoia and insanity.

Lyrics:
You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.
You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.

I can’t put it back together.
I guess you thought you could do better.

You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.
You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.

Why would you go and do this baby?
Now I feel like I’m going crazy.
Why would you go and do this baby?
Now I feel like I’m going crazy.

You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.
You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.

If I can’t have you then no one can.
I’m gonna bury you out in my land.
If I can’t have you then no one can.
I’m gonna bury you out in my land

Dig a little hole in the dirt and throw you in.
Dig a little hole in the dirt and throw you in.
Dig a little hole in the dirt and throw you in.
Dig a little hole in the dirt and throw you in.
Dig a little hole in the dirt and throw you in.
Dig a little hole in the dirt and throw you in.

You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.
You broke this heart of mine
At least a thousand times.
