What a Broken Heart Can Do
Takako Mamiya Lyrics


I′m just a freak here at the sideshow
Where all the people can look at me
Between the strong man and the tattooed lady
I'm here to look at, not to see
They pay their 50′second and walk on through
They quickly glance and look away
And through my glass wools I can watch them
Hold, there's the children cross to say
That's what a broken heart can do
It′s why the angels ignore her
That′s what a broken heart can do
There is no wire or strings
She lost everything
But I promise that it won't happen to you
I see all the young couples passing by
And watch them catch each other tight
Then one will whisper to the other
Please, won′t you stay with me tonight?
I've seen the hard looks and the empty stares
I′ve heard the sighs and silent screams
I've felt the pain that comes when no ones cares
Know the ache of your worst dreams
This is what a broken heart can do
It′s why the angels ignore me
This is what a broken heart can do
There is no wire or strings
I've lost everything
Don't be sure that it won′t happen to you

i've always been confused about this song - because its the same music as love trip, just different vocals, and its not just a translation as some might think.

Randy Velasquez

Barley found out today too

Amethyst Starseeker

yes same music, but totally different lyric, love trip as the beginning of the album, the lyric as the title, about a girl begin her trip to love, pink rose, blink glass...dream of love, something like that. yet all through the album, from Chinese restaurant, to midnight joke, to All or Nothing, to One more Night, and last to this What A Broken Heart Can Do, she end with a broken heart...btw, this song is indeed lyric in English. btw again, just like a prophecy, Takako Mamiya begin with this album and this is also her last album, then she disappear totally from the music industry, no anyone even Japanese know where she gone or where she's now, even whether she still alive...sadly miss her 40 years, yet I just hope she's living well somewhere in the world...

@Dare DICKY a broken heart makes you feel like a freak at a circus show... they just stare at you but don't care about you. you're a brief amusement soon forgotten and left alone
