lyrics

You broke my heart, late one night in Blaker's Park -
Tore it in half, devoured it whole.
Coldly you spoke and betrayed a promise made -
Your heart and mine, together always.

So, I cut out your heart
In Blaker's Park -
Blackness smothers the stars.

Lovely and young, we sat underneath a tree -
Night drawing in, you said to me -
'I want our love carved in wood for all to see.
Your name and mine, together always'.

So, that tree bore our heart
In Blaker's Park -
Under cover of stars.

Silver flashing, sharper, slicing
Deeper, harder
Heartbreak coming fast -
And your heart bleeds at last.

Lovers so young won't lie near a tree so scarred -
Lonely it stands, grows older.
Often I watch and when they leave I share its shade -
That tree and I, together always.

Cos that tree wears my scars
In Blaker's Park -
Wounded, we curse the stars.
