Lyrics

There was an old man at the counter
He couldn't feed himself
No one seemed to make a move
To offer any help
The waitress didn't notice
She went about her day

Passed out at the Bus Stop
A bearded man did lay
No one got to close
To check if he was OK
He had a tattoo of Semper Fi
and God Bless The USA

This world will break your heart
This world will break your heart
This world will break your heart
In a thousand different ways

Ali lost her baby
In the final month
The room was painted blue
They had a named picked for their son
The husband said they'd try again
He didn't know what else to say

50 years of marriage
If he'd made it until July
The nurse gave back his clothes
As she began to cry
She told the Social Worker
She had nowhere else to stay

This world will break your heart
This world will break your heart
This world will break your heart
In a thousand different ways

There's fire on the hillside
Oil in the Sea
People hurting everywhere
As far as I can see
We're just castles made of sand
Someday we're gonna wash away

Romeo he stumbled in
With an unlit cigarette
Said he just got off the phone with Mr. Capulet
Who warned "Boy best be careful or there will be hell to pay."

Babe, we're getting older
Yeah this much is true
But each day is a gift that I get to spend with you
Babe, I'll always love you
Beyond my dying day

This world will break your heart
This world will break your heart
This world will break your heart
In a thousand different ways
