Everybody has a story to tell
Every detail they remember so well
And they tell it to anyone with and ear to hear
And heart to sympathize and care
These strangers are friends you haven’t met
So pull up a stool and light up a cigarette
And I’ll tell ya a story I’ll never forget
See, she wasn’t anything special
Just a girl that I used to know
I don’t care about the ring on her finger
It was just a hand that I used to hold
She was slicker than a sheet of ice
And roughly about twice as cold
She left me with a this on my tongue
But even I think it’s getting old
She was the craziest girl
That anyone could come across
She used to shop at Victoria’s Secret
And everything she got was half off
And I was standing there
Standing at attention, and full aware
That no matter how ready you think you are
There are times you will never be prepared
But I was so into her
And I found there is a heaven here on Earth
But paradises can be lost
And until then you can’t determine their worth
So I’m sitting here waiting
Cuz I’m bored and tired of being alone
Stuck in a bar that has no clocks
To let me know when its time to go home
And you may think this single life
Can get to you and begin to wear thin
But I think I love the pain or just knowing
But this heart just needs a little breaking in
Well this heart could use some breaking in
It’s the dead of winter with storm coming in
I find myself lost and lonely
Caught myself up in a sleet and wind
Wondering if you got all those letters I’ve sent
If there was misinterpretation in what you’ve read
I hate chocolates and this lame stuffed bear
Love’s a Valentine’s massacre waiting to happen
And maybe your heart could use a little breaking in
When you’re man is out of town on business again
And its Saturday night with no where to go
But you’re in love and always waiting on him
But that’s a story I don’t care to see how it ends
You're bored and lonely and in need of a friend
Did I mention that I’m not a preacher?
I’ve no concern for any of your sins
I’ve been in love many times before
And it’ll happen again and many times more
Live and learn they say
Don’t ask if I’m scared cuz I’d say I don’t think so
I've been waiting here for you
To get say it's time to begin cuz
My heart’s been already broken in
For you to come and fit right in

this is quite gorgeous.
i like the beat poetry like thing youve got going on before you start singing... its kinda like a prologue... gives the song more of a foundation [even though it stands well on its own]
i like the idea of a heart needing broken in. like a horse or a pair of shoes. and i think that its prolly an accurate idea in some ways coz even though there's willingness to love sometimes there are things we need to learn to love about the other...
i enjoyed the tension in this piece... the idea that she wasnt anything special, that she was someone elses and yet you had half a thing... trying to convince her [and perhaps yourself] that there could be more though telling her at the same time that she isnt "the one" exactly... there'll be many more loves after her...
i dont know... theres honesty in this song that is reinforced by ray lamontagne who is singing 'i could hold you in my arms/ i could hold you forever' right this moment in my ear...

it's so sad and heart-breaking,
and there is a kind of acceptance or
surrender to the fact that hearts have been
broken, and they will break again.
i wish so much that i could hear this.
