Song of the day



Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart Tonight

Well excuse me if I break my own heart
it's mine from the finish I guess
it was mine from the start
this situation just don't seem so goddamn smart
this situation is tearing me apart

so you'll have to excuse me
I break my own heart

well excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
some things aren't born too strong
have to learn how to fight
this situation keeps me drinking every goddamn day and night
this situation don't seem so right

so excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
well excuse me if I break my own heart tonight

after all it was mine
after all it was mine
after all it was mine
can I have it back sometime?

so if the rain falls down on your Mississippi town
let your eyes drift easy into mine
if the rain falls down on your Mississippi town
let your eyes drift into mine
you're on the road but your diary entry reads blank(it reads blank)
is this some sort of joke to you?
is this some sort of joke to you?

well excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
well excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
after all it was mine
after all it was mine
after all it was mine
can I have it back sometime?

I just love this song and every other one on this album. Whiskeytown was one of those bands that should have been ridiculously famous. Frontman Ryan Adams went on to have a very successful solo career and his work is clearly reminiscent of his former band. I remember listening to Stranger's Almanac on a flight to New York many years ago. I played it over and over for hours, getting lost in the lyrics and wanting desperately to be the object of Ryan's affections.

Enjoy this one, it's a great one!
