Lyrics

STOP BREAKING MY HEART

As I was walking through the cool night wind
Miss Aviance waltzed right by
She didn't know me by the shape I'm in
I guess I can't wonder why
I've grown a little older, I got a little fatter
I show a little gray on top
I whispered how I miss her when I knew she wouldn't hear me
Prayed to God make her stop, make her stop, make her stop

(CHORUS)
Stop breaking my heart (I'll always love you more than he)
Stop breaking my heart (It's a pain I know too well)
Stop breaking my heart (I'll beg you to forever)
Stop breaking my heart

At a café' on the Riverwalk down in San Antonio
She takes a seat as she begins to talk
Charming her newfound beau
I listen to them talking, she notices I'm watching
Wonders where she's seen me before
Suddenly they're leaving, could it be she hears me
Praying God make her stop, make her stop, make her stop

(CHORUS)
(INSTRUMENTAL)

Ooh ooh ooh oooooh
Ooh ooh ooh oooooh

Stop breaking my heart (I'll always love you more than he)
Stop breaking my heart (It's a pain I know too well)
Stop breaking my heart (I'll beg you to forever)
Stop breaking my heart
Stop breaking my heart
Stop breaking my heart
Stop breaking my heart
Stop breaking my heart


The lyrics are telling the story in this song. The harmonic is a nice touch and the lead guitar adds a moanful sound to get the point across even further.

great song good idea........

What I like most--the drummer. Nothing here is bad, but the drummer is really clearly accomplished.

already like the laid back 1-2 tempo. nothing a good story. little flash of Niel Young

Has good rhythm,
