Happy Hearts - Okkervil River

Why must happy hearts break so hard
Leave you curled up in the back seat of a car
Staring up at the windshield
When will broken hearts learn how to heal

This boy I knew was five years older than me
His daddy left him when he was three
After we went walking by a stream
He held me down and made me feel as bad as he

Why must happy hearts break so hard
Leave you standing in the darkness of the barn
Staring at those rusty wheels,
When will broken hearts learn how to heal

And everybody's searching for a place to put their love
See the people on the street,
they go home, and what do you think they dream of
Unconditional love
Why did you leave me

Mother, oh, why do you sleep with him
He says he's smothering, then he comes back again
In our house for the weekend
Why must people's breaking hearts pretend

Why must happy hearts break so hard
Leave you staring in the mirror of a bar
Leave you talking to yourself
Cause you can't talk to anybody else
