Rufus Wainwright - 14th Street lyrics

You got my lost brother's soul
My dear mother's eyes
A brown horse's mane
And my uncle's name

You walked me down 14th Street
With a doctor to meet
After thoughts of the grave
In the home of the brave
And of the weak
But

Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a minor part
I could have clipped and saved and planted in the garden
Damn you guess I'll have to get a new one

I'd love to sit and watch you drink
With the reins to the world
Gripping a smoke
Vaguely missing link

Don't ever change
You hungry little bashful hound
I got the sheep poor Little Bo Peep has lost
And filed for grounds
But

Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a minor part
I could have ripped apart and thrown into the river
Wonder if there're hearts that will deliver

Don't ever change don't ever worry
Because I'm coming back home tomorrow
To 14th Street where I won't hurry
And where I'll learn how to save not just borrow
And they'll be rainbows
And we will finally know

Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a minor part of it

Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a minor part of it

Why'd you have to break all my heart
Couldn't you have saved a little bit of it
Why'd you have to break all my heart
