Song Description

A driving-away break-up song

Story Behind the Song

. If we don?t have enough room in our hearts for another person, can we grow another? Would having two hearts dilute the feelings, make them more tolerable? At which point in a break-up is the lover gone, the one a zero? When they say it?s over, or when their car?s driving away? Or never?


You got the car and your gear
'Though you're still standing here
You're all ready
Already gone

You say 'That's enough of your love for this girl
That's enough of your love
I grew a second heart for you
But now I say enough'
And you're already, already gone

So you said 'This is it'
And your beautiful head
Took its leave from my shoulder
I watched you recede to the end of our street
Indicate and turn away

'That's enough of your love for this girl
That's enough of your love
You tore apart my second heart
I said wasn't one enough for you?
I'm already, already gone'

Last night of the affair
Your skin, your sleep, your hair
You were still lying there

Yet already gone
Like an ice-sculpture-you in the sun
Disappearing before me
I watched you retreat, trickle into our street
Make your great escape

So you had a second heart
Did you feel half as bad
That you had me believing
That you were still here
With your car and your gear
When darling all along
You were gone
