The first single out of the album "A Record".


I was born with an over-sized heart
Pathologically prone to be parted
I couldn't see --
Who would take my breath from me?
No, I couldn't find --
Who would give his heart for mine?

I had walked down the narrowest roads
My over-sized heart kept bruising on the walls
I was laughed at and banned
No hand shall touch my hand
But I could understand
So my heart grew even larger then.

I had died of an over-sized heart
As my lover sat by my side
I had loved him so
That my heart could no more grow
No room was left then inside
So with my heart I died.
