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?

Makes me cry. What a talent has walked this earth...


I dunno. I'm hardcore old fan, and I found this very poignant for that reason. ugly cried a little.

Mark Doidge

This is a classic for sure,
But us hard core fans will harp back to 84/85. This song was constructed for that Lloyd.

Mark Dowding

Once described as the "English Elvis" for me that is an insult, he's much better than that


I loved him then n I still love him today, so hey...


Lloyd with silver in his hair -- be still my heart! Still has that gorgeous voice, and as handsome as ever. *sigh*

Has anyone seen Jimmy Carr and Lloyd Cole in the same room together?

Hi. I misse the time when I was a young boy and listened to this and other songs of this gentleman. The years passed, he grew old and me also ... but the music continues to remind me the good things that I have lived. Thank you. A big hug and friendship for everyone!

Ricardo Dantas

I wish was there too! Genius! Greetings from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
