Song Lyric Sunday: Human Connections – ‘Heartbreaker’

‘Information’ and ‘communication’ could summarise the prompts for Song Lyric Sunday this week. That first of all made me think of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Communication Breakdown’, but then I recalled this acceptable alternative, as Robert Plant has information to impart.

Hey fellas, have you heard the news?
You know that Annie’s back in town
It won’t take long, just watch and see
How the fellas lay their money down

Her style is new, but the face the same
As it was so long ago
But from her eyes, a different smile
Like that of one who knows

Well, it’s been ten years or maybe more
Since I first set eyes on you
The best years of my life gone by
Here I am alone and blue

Some people cry and some people die
By the wicked ways of love
But I’ll just keep on rolling along
With the grace of the Lord above

People talking all around
About the way you left me flat
I don’t care what the people say
I know where their jive is at

One thing I do have on my mind
If you can clarify, please do
It’s the way you call me by another guy’s name
When I try to make love to you, yeah

I try to make love but it ain’t no use
Give it to me, give it

Work so hard I couldn’t unwind
Get some money saved
Abuse my love a thousand times
However hard I tried

Heartbreaker, your time has come
Can’t take your evil way
Go away, heartbreaker
Heartbreaker!
Heartbreaker!
Heart!

Written by John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant
