Jason Riggs: La Musica

"My Heart's Not Broken Anymore" from the album "Pawn Shop Special"

(words and music by Jason Riggs)
Lyrics

Took a little while, but I think I’m healed.
No other explanation for how I feel.
It’s like it’s okay, if I laugh or smile.
Like I won’t forget if I’m happy for a while.


Chorus:

I know it aint over yet.
There will be days you can bet.
But I feel like I’m staring at an open door.
My heart’s not broken anymore.


Aint it amazing what a woman can do.
When she’s got her love wrapped all over you.
She’ll make you believe it’s gonna be all right.
Hold her close and the beast rests tonight.


(Chorus)


Took a little while, but I think I’m cured.
Be a few years, before I know for sure.
All I wanna do, is get some sleep.
So someone shut me up if I get too deep.


(Chorus)
The Story

"I had written quite a few heartbreak songs over the years. I was informed by a certain special someone in no uncertain terms that my heart was no longer broken, and I could probably dispense with the sad songs for a while lest people get the wrong idea about our relationship. I do not believe in censorship, but sometimes you got to do what you're told to avoid rocking the boat."

-Jason Riggs, 2006
