Are You Ready to Be Heartbroken?
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


Looking like a born again
Living like a heretic
Listening to arthur lee records
Making all your friends feel so guilty
About their cynicism
And the rest of their generation
Not even the government are gonna stop you now
But are you ready to be heartbroken?
Are you ready to be heartbroken?

Pumped up full of vitamins
On account of all the seriousness
You say you're so happy now
You can hardly stand
Lean over on the bookcase
If you really want to get straight
Read norman mailer
Or get a new tailor
Are you ready to be heartbroken?
Are you ready to be heartbroken?
Are you ready to bleed?

What would it take
What would it take to wipe that smile off of your face?
Are you ready to be, are you ready to bleed?

Are you ready to be heartbroken?
Are you ready to bleed? (heartbroken)
Well you better get ready now baby
Are you ready to bleed? , ready to bleed?

hey lloyd, a quick letter to you

i love camera obscura and trust tracyanne with all my heart but after this part i always break down crying

"Looking like a born again
Living like a heretic
Listening to arthur lee records
Making all your friends feel so guilty
About their cynicism
And the rest of their generation
Not even the government are gonna stop you now
But are you ready to be heartbroken?
Are you ready to be heartbroken?"

Lloyd coles songs really bring me back in time. It really captures a certain time and feelings related to that time in history. British music always has that power, its really magical and along with the music great voices with great spiritual essence.

This album blew me away when it came out - still love it to bits, probably even more now.

David Pegg

Defo.... I had it on a TDK AD90 when it first came out. It really stands the test of time.

Amy Wall

Not a bad song on it!

Lloyd Cole is amazing. I have liked soo many bands/artists over the years and he is one of the few that i go back to over and over again. Brilliant. Hope he can see this.

STEVWATSON

The best song from one of my 10 favourite albums ever made.

Rachael Forrest

I've just realised that this is about a lover getting ready to let someone go.
