Suzy Bogguss — I Wish Hearts Would Break lyrics

He was a giant
Swung a heavy hammer in the bottom of a mine
But he always came up smiling, a light within his eyes
Now there is a skeleton that I don't recognize
But it is not the coal that has him fading fast
It's a love gone forever that he thought would last
That he can't get past

I wish hearts would break
It wouldn't be quite such a beating to take
Why don't they give in
Instead of coming back over and over again
Oh I wish hearts would break
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/suzy-bogguss-i-wish-hearts-would-break-lyrics.html ]
She was an angel
Arms open wide, never met a stranger
Now she withdraws at the slightest touch
Like an animal that's beaten one time too much
But it was not an angry hand that hurt her so
It was a gentle one that she used to hold
That let her go

I wish hearts would break
It wouldn't be quite such a beating to take
Why don't they give in
Instead of coming back over and over again
Oh I wish hearts would break

I wish hearts would break
It wouldn't be quite such a beating to take
Why don't they give in
Instead of coming back over and over again
Oh I wish hearts would break
