Broken Toenails
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Broken toenails and my car won't start; tore my sock and now I'm gonna be late
Add to that my brand new broken heart; it's pretty clear I must've lost the debate
I guess we had a helluva night; anyway, got my day started off just right

CHORUS
Now I had counted on you as the one thing in my life
That I wouldn't have to fight; everything always be all right
But I guess I was wrong; broken toenails

VERSE
Head feelin' bad, late to work; don't have no pills, got fired
World closin' in, everything hurts; no turnin' back, I guess love has expired
Is there anything I can do? Heart of my soul, I'm still in love with you

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
I guess I should not have kicked that door -- broken toenails
