Before the night comes, before the city sleeps
I walk a lonely mile
I know you're out there
I know you're waiting for me to make a sign

I know you'd like me to go and crumble
Reveal myself to you
I lost a wing and grew a shell on the wound
Oh so soon

And heartbreak no you can't catch me
Hot on my heels but I move too fast
I know you think that I would make good company, at last

You always come 'round after your good friend love
Has gone and run aground
A heart in shambles oh well it's just what you need
Your purpose found

You turn the lights down and draw the curtains
You put the kettle on
Come over here, sit down tell me your troubles
You sing the saddest song

And heartbreak no you can't catch me
Hot on my heals but I move too fast
I know you think that I would make good company, at last

I'm free to wander so get up off of your knees
And find some other fool
Someone who'll hold you when you've got no one to tease
It won't be me
