Broken hearts are not so bad
Look at me, hey, I've been had
A broken heart's what I have tonight

Painted nails will rip your shirt
Will make you scream, hey, make you hurt
Broken hearts and painted nails tonight

Rusty keys and old motels
Nothing new, hey, no thrills
Rusty keys and old motels tonight

And staring at the phone, hoping it'll ring
Friday night, yeah, no big thing
I'm staring at the phone in my old motel tonight

I could just watch you seriously
Like a science project curiously
All alone I am the walking dead
Would you soothe my aching head?
C'mon, soothe my aching head

Telegrams and old love letters
I got your scent on all my sweaters
Telegrams and clothes that smell like you tonight

'cause broken hearts are not so bad
Look at me, hey, I've been had
A broken heart's what I have tonight
Yeah, a broken heart's not so bad tonight
