Cruising For A Broken Heart

from Romantic Music For Perverts by Black Hay



I must be crazy, must be out of my mind
To hope this high
But you get the strangest ideas in the night sometimes
That you just have to try

I've been falling a long time, into your trap
My heart goes sailing, into your lap

To lay it all out from the start
Is just cruising for a broken heart

In some of your sweeter moments
For no reason, you feel so sure
None so brave as fools
They don’t care, what might be in store

You never know what she's thinking
You never know who she's seeing (when you're not around)
and You never can tell (makes you wanna check it out)
Who's wearing her smell right now

Cos you're just like them in the dark
Your hopes held high beneath the stars
Still reaching out with arms wide apart
Is just cruising for a broken heart

And Maybe I'll find it's not so smart
The fall back down can leave you scarred
But You can’t let fear blow out the spark
It’s not worth falling unless you fall hard

So go Cruising for a broken heart

Black Hay London, UK

Black Hay is the project of London-born Gideon K and a motley crew of collaborators.

Previously described as "Worse than Leonard Cohen", Black Hay's music has gone from noirish garage rock, to grungey alt-country low-rock, via DIY house-bound balladry, to a current incarnation of cold-hearted post-punk indie synth-tronica.

The new single 'Always Be Mine' is out now.
