lyrics

Act 1, curtain up
a little girl falls off the back of a truck
14, she's on the run
chip in her teeth, but she ain't judging her luck
a polaroid at 21
she's just a kid
she's just a kid with a kid!

There's a point in every story where it all falls apart
oh, it's raining in the winter and the car won't start
anybody else would have to fold their cards
but it ain't nothing for Big,
Big Unbreakable Heart

Act 2, his gentle hands
hey play guitar
in a rock n' roll band
one kiss, they dream a dream
bring home a dog
and buy a washing machine
he drinks, they start to scream
she loads her girl into the backseat

There's a point in every story where it all falls apart
oh it's raining in the winter and the car won't start
anybody else would have to fold their cards
but it ain't nothing for Big,
Big Unbreakable Heart

Oh but wasn't it something?
When he held her she was home
And wasn't it something?
When she had to let him go

There's a point in every story where it all falls apart
oh, it's raining in the winter and the car won't start
Anybody else would have to fold their cards,
but it ain't nothing for Big,
Big Unbreakable Heart
