      About "Broke Down"

      Lyrics for Slaid Cleaves - "Broke Down"

      Sherry had a pawn shop band of gold
      A sink full of dishes and a love grown cold
      Along came a boy, pretty as the devil
      She took his hand, the whole thing unravelled

      There's no turnin' round, it's broke down

      Billy took the ring, jammed it in his pocket
      Drove down town and tried to hock it
      Down at the bottom of Lake Ponchartrain
      There's a love not carved inside a wedding ring

      Broke down, cracked and shattered
      Left in pieces like it never even mattered
      Broke down, torn and frayed, ain't nothin' left you could give away
      There's no turnin' round, it's broke down

      Ain't no tellin where love goes
      Maybe down where the black river flows
      Won't be comin' back round, it's broke down

      Baby in the back seat, and another on the way
      Sherry thinks of Billy at the end of every day
      Spends her nights waiting for real life to start
      Listening to the sound of her double crossed heart

      Broke down, cracked and shattered
      Left in pieces like it never even mattered
      There's no turnin' round, it's broke down

      On the other side of town, two lovers lie still
      Cigarette smokin' on a window sill
      There's a picture locked up in an old suitcase
      Billy closes his eyes but he still sees her face

      Broke down, cracked and shattered
      Left in pieces like it never even mattered
      Broke down, torn and frayed, ain't nothin' left you could give away
      There's no turnin' round, it's broke down, broke down
