Broken Hearted Blues
T. Rex Lyrics

This is a song, that I wrote when I was young
And I call it the broken-hearted blues
The air on that night was tempered like a knife
And the people wore the face masks of a clown
Don he was long, mis-shapen and forlorn
And his woman ran away without a smile
Days of the earth are unbroken changeless turf
But the faces of the men are something else
Jason Wind, as a boy, was a spacious sexual toy
But baby now he's a toothless baggy man
When the hills of the sun
Make you feel that you are young
Get good now and face your face into the wind
This is a song that I wrote when I was young
And I called it the Broken Hearted Blues

Wish he had written more songs like this. Instead of chasing the 3 minute pop hits. He was much more talented than he gave himself credit for. Tank has some amazing songs on. But after this he just seemed to lose his way. Too many drugs and breaking up with June did him no favours. Still we love you though Marc 💗 KALMIYH

William Gibson

If you take off the sax this could have appeared on Beard of Stars which I think was his finest moment.
