about

Tony has taken 'Heartache', written more than thirty years ago by Frank Collins of Kokomo, and rearranged it into a beautiful song with heartfelt lyrics and haunting melody.

lyrics

I’VE NEVER FELT THIS LONELY IN ALL MY LIFE
I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SINK DOWN SO LOW
I NEVER IMAGINED IT WOULD COME TO THIS
I’M DEVASTATED BEYOND REPAIR
WHERE ARE THE FRIENDS WHO PROMISED THEY’D BE THERE
WHEN I NEEDED HELP
NOW THERE’S NO ONE CAN TELL HOW I FEEL

CHORUS
THERE’S NO WAY THAT I CAN TAKE THIS HEARTACHE
JUST CAN’T TAKE THIS HEARTACHE
I CAN’T TAKE THIS HEARTACHE
JUST CAN’T TAKE THIS HEARTACHE

VERSE 2
THOUGH PEOPLE HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS
IT’S NOT QUITE ENOUGH
COS WHEN YOU’VE LOST A LOVE SO DEEP
YOU NEED A HELPING HAND TO LIFT YOU UP
SO LONG I’VE WAITED BUT I DON’T HEAR
NO WORD FROM THOSE WHO SAY THEY CARE
OH, WHERE ARE YOU NOW
I HOW I NEED YOU NOW
I GOT NO ONE

CHORUS

INST (VOC AD LIBS – SO LONG I’VE WAITED, WHERE ARE YOU NOW)

HALF VERSE 3
I’M DEVASTATED BEYOND REPAIR
WHERE ARE THE FRIENDS WHO PROMISED THEY’D BE THERE
WHEN I NEED HELP
NOW THERE’S NO ONE CAN TELL HOW I FEEL

MODULATION
CHORUS & OUTRO TO FADE
I CAN’T TAKE IT NO MORE, KEEPS BRINGING ME DOWN – AD LIBBED
