SLAID CLEAVES


Broke Down Lyrics

Sherry had a pawnshop band of gold
A sink full of dishes and a love grown cold
'Long came a boy pretty as the devil
She took his hand, the whole thing unraveled
There's no turnin' round
It's Brokedown

Billy took the ring and jammed it in his pocket
Drove downtown and tried to hock it
Down to the bottom of Lake Ponchetrain
There's a love note carved inside a wedding ring

Brokedown, cracked and shattered
Left in Pieces like it never even mattered
Brokedown, torn and frayed
Ain't nothin' left you could give away
There's no turnin' round
It's Brokedown

Ain't no tellin' where love goes
Maybe down where the Black River flows
Won't be comin' back round
It's Brokedown

Baby in the backseat and another on the way
Sherry thinks of Billy and at the end of every day
Spends her nights waitin' for real life to start
List'nin' to the sound of her double-crossed heart

Brokedown, cracked and shattered
Left in Pieces like it never even mattered
There's no turnin' round
It's Brokedown

On the other side of town two lovers lie still
Cigarette smokin' on a window sill
There's a picture locked up in an old suitcase
Billy closes his eyes, but he still sees her face

Brokedown, cracked and shattered
Left in Pieces like it never even mattered
Brokedown, torn and frayed
Ain't nothin' left you could give away
There's no turnin' round
It's Brokedown
Brokedown
