There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

Truth #2

Five years ago, I left a (up to that point) 5 year relationship with someone that I loved heart and soul. BUT, he broke my nose, gave me a black eye, permanently disfigured one of my fingers, and denies his son. I woke up one day and realized that I didn't have to be a door mat. When the line in this song says, I looked at my reflection in the window walking past And I saw a stranger I KNOW what this means. I have lived it. I promise you I will post this song with me singing it this weekend. This womans lyrics have always made me feel in touch. Click on the link to the play.

Truth #2 - Patty Griffin

You don't like the sound of the truth
Coming from my mouth
You say that I lack the proof
Well baby that might be so
I might get to the end of my life
Find out everyone was lying
I don't think that I’m afraid anymore
Say that I would rather die trying

Chorus:
Who-oh
Swing me way down south
Sing me something brave from your mouth
And I'll bring you pearls of water on my hips
And the love in my lips
All the love from my lips

This time when he swung the bat
And I found myself laying flat I wondered
What a way to spend a dime
What a way to use the time, ain't it baby?
I looked at my reflection in the window walking past
And I saw a stranger
Just so scared all the time it makes me one more reason
Why the world's dangerous

Chorus:
Who-oh
Swing me way down south
Sing me something brave from your mouth
And I'll bring you pearls of water on my hips
And the love in my lips
All the love from my lips

You don't like the sound of the truth
Coming from my mouth
You say that I lack the proof
Well baby thats just not so
Tell me what's wrong with having a little faith
In what you're feeling in your heart
Why must we be so afraid
And always so far apart

Chorus:
Who-oh
Swing me way down south
Sing me something brave from your mouth
And I'll bring you pearls of water on my hips
And the love in my lips
All the love from my lips

  3. Men who hit Women are sick, pathetic, despicable losers. Everyone always wants to focus on Her, to say "why don't You just leave?" The proper question ought to be, "Why do we allow this sack of crap to keep on hitting Her? Why is his sorry a$$ not being tossed into jail and left there to rot until he's too old and weak to hit a housefly?"
