Musical Monday: Break Your Heart

I have always loved Natalie Merchant, and this is one of my faves that she did. OK, I danced a little while I recorded it!   Enjoy.  Click on the song title to hear my recording.

Break Your Heart

People downcast, is despair
See the disillusion everywhere
Hoping their bad luck will change
Gets a little harder every day

People struggle, people fight
For the simple pleasures in their lives
But trouble comes from everywhere
It's a little more than you can bear

I know that it will hurt
I know that it will break your heart
The way things are
And the way they've been
And the way they've always been

People shallow, self-absorbed
See the push and shove for their rewards
I, me, my is on their minds
You can read about it in their eyes

People ruthless, people cruel
See the damage that some people do
Full of hatred, full of pride
It's enough to make you loose your mind

I know that it will hurt
I know that it will break your heart
The way things are
And the way they've been

I know that it will hurt
I know that it will break your heart
The way things are
And the way they've been

Don't spread the discontent
Don't spread the lies
Don't make the same mistakes
With your own life
You never will let love survive

I know that it will hurt
I know that it will break your heart
The way things are
And the way they've been

Don't spread the discontent
Don't spread the lies
Don't make the same mistakes
With your own life
Don't disrespect yourself
Don't loose your pride
And don't think that
Everybody's gonna choose your side

I just ADORE Natalie Merchant and this a particular favourite of mine. It suits your voice beautifully. The harmonizing gave me chills - the good kind!

Have you done a video of you dancing to this song? Some songs are just like that, aren't they, you just cannot sit still, you have to dance.
