lyrics

Your Aching Heart
There aint nothing sadder
Than a Saturday on your own
Folk in the street,
They’re so careless, so cold
And lovers holding hands
Smile, then they pass away
Yeah you’d give the world
For the one that was gonna stay

You’re a stranger in this town
You’re a stranger to yourself
The hand holding your cigarette
Feels like it belongs to someone else
You let the smoke rise
Watch it fade away
Wishing you could hold it back
Longing to

And your achin heart
Your achin heart
Oh your achin heart
Goes on

You’re trynna hold on to something
A remnant of your past
But the old days are gone
And the new ones they slide by so fast, so fast
You scuff your feet
Drag your heels down the road
Oh if only she were here
You know she’d lighten up this heavy load

And your achin heart
Your achin heart
Oh your achin heart
Goes on
Goes on

She said ‘love comes and goes like the tide,’
Bloody mary in her hand as you watched her dancing by
She said ‘love comes and goes like the tide, goes like the tide’
She said ‘love comes and goes like the tide,’
Bloody mary in her hand as you watched her dancing by
She said ‘love comes and goes like the tide, goes like the tide’


The light it is fading now
There’s a silence in the streets
Darkness in your hotel room
And pity in everyone you meet
Ah to hell with them you're thinkin
What do they know about me and you?
Yeah they’re wasting their time
Trynna pity a fool
And your achin heart
Your achin heart
Oh your achin heart
Yeah your achin heart
Oh your achin heart
Oh your achin heart
Goes on
