lyrics

I'd hoped you'd got out with that joy you had
'Cause things were looking like things went bad
And all them boys that you held in your hands
Did your beauty ever break their hearts
Did your beauty ever break their hearts
Did your beauty ever

I'm came in at the tale end of that boomer crew
They were off in their communes getting screwed
Or maybe making porn with some German dudes
But did your beauty ever break their hearts?

They followed the Dead until Jerry died
They sang "Let's pass around the women like a bottle of wine."
And I know sometimes you didn't mind
But did your beauty ever break their hearts?

I remember the night I was first on the floor
Of the legendary Studio 54
There was sex and there was cocaine on the bathroom floor
But did your beauty ever break their hearts.

So I fall on my knees in the semblance of prayer
And send out my petitions to who knows where
I cry "You demand that I never despair
But Your beauty just breaks my heart."

And I know you're a beauty but you're not all right
I can tell by your eyes that you miss the light
And if I could shine, I would shine tonight
Your beauty just breaks my heart
Your beauty just breaks my heart
Your beauty

I hope you get out with that joy you had
'Cause things were looking like things were bad
But all them boys that you held in your hands
Did your beauty ever break their hearts?
Did your beauty ever break their hearts?
Did your beauty ever
