I Am Trying To Break Your Heart
Artist: Wilco
Album: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot



I am an american aquarium drinker
I assassin down the avenue
I'm hiding out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you?

Let's forget about the tongue-tied lightning
Let's undress just like cross-eyed strangers
This is not a joke so please stop smiling
What was I thinking when I said it didn't hurt?

I want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming
Take from the inside, baby hold on tight
You were so right when you said I'd been drinking
What was I thinking when we said goodnight?

I want to hold you in the bible-black pre-dawn
You're quite a quiet domino, bury me now
Take off your bandaid 'cause I don't believe in touchdowns
What was I thinking when we said hello?

I always thought that if I held you tightly
You would always love me like you did back then
Then I fell asleep and the city kept blinking
What was I thinking when I let you back in?

I am trying to break your heart
I am trying to break your heart
But still, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't easy
I am trying to break your heart

Disposable dixie cup drinking
I assassin down the avenue
I'm running out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you?

I'm the man who loves you.
