Suddenly

SUDDENLY

I'm walking by the sea and look
The sun is out today
I've got some clothes that I don't want
Except to give away
And suddenly a picture in the shop
My body turns to water and I stop
A horror film is running in me head
And I remember wishing I was dead

Chorus
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It brings you down, yer stood apart
And in the day it's always night
And in the sun there is no light
It breaks your heart

I'm wandering looking at a church
I got here on me bike
It's peaceful and the leaves are blowing
All the things I like
And then I see a couple walking by
Still very much in love, it's in their eyes
And I am down and crawling on my knees
When I remember no-one's loving me

Chorus
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It brings you down, yer stood apart
And in the day it's always night
And in the sun there is no light
It breaks your heart

I start the day, I'm worried
It's the way it's always been
I cannot do right for the wrong
And now I don't believe
I'm always thinking forward in me head
Where everything has happened that I dread
And when I get to where I'm going, someday
I hope somebody smiles at me in someday

Chorus
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It brings you down, yer stood apart
And in the day it's always night
And in the sun there is no light
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart

I'm riding on a bus
To where I study when I can
This is not me country, not who I really am
I see a man who's talking on the phone
He's laughing, you can see he's not alone
And I don't know how many years I've cried
Living where I don't belong and I'm not wanted

Chorus
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It brings you down, yer stood apart
And in the day it's always night
And in the sun there is no light
It breaks your heart

It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It brings you down, you're stood apart
And in the day it's always night
And in the sun there is no light
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It breaks your heart, it breaks your heart
It breaks your heart
