Here I Sit, Broken-Hearted

They say the saddest things in life
Are the dreams that don't come true.
They build you up, they let you down,
They break your heart in two.

Some men are more sensitive,
Disappointment takes its toll.
It challenges their heart
And then it drains life from their soul.

I read the words of one such man
So many years ago.
They sent a shiver down my spine
Of which you'll never know.

On a men's room wall in Philly
Where he scrawled his anguished note,
I could feel his heartache rising
As I read the words he wrote.


"Here I sit,
Broken-hearted.
Came to shit,
But only farted.

As I write these words in sorrow
And I think what might have been,
I can't face one more tomorrow,
Can't go through this all again."


Those aching words have stayed with me
Through the miles and the years.
And sometimes when I think of them
It's hard to hold back tears.

For a man whose dreams were shattered,
For a man drowned in despair,
For a man who'd reached his limit,
And had no one left to care, he said,


"Here I sit,
Broken-hearted.
Came to shit,
But only farted.

As I write these words in sorrow
And I think what might have been,
I can't face one more tomorrow,
Can't go through this all again.

Here I sit,
Broken-hearted.
Came to shit,
But only farted.

As I write these words in sorrow
And I think what might have been,
I can't face one more tomorrow,
Can't go through this all again.

I can't face one more tomorrow,
Can't go through this all again."
