NOTHING BREAKS BUT THE HEART From the London Show "Zip Goes A Million" (1951) (George Posford / Eric Maschwitz) Warde Donovan - 1951 Andrew Halliday - 2001 Nothing breaks, nothing breaks but the heart When the love of your life Is away or alone in the park When the evening begins And the lamp starts to glitter and glow There's the whole of the town at your feet But you've nowhere to go No romance, not a table for two There's a guy with a gal in the dark But the guy isn't you When the stars tumble down And you wait for the sun's rays to start When the love of your life is away Nothing breaks but the heart Then you hate the sound of the city And the distant song of the street And you envy the laughter of lovers Going somewhere with someone to meet But for you no step on the stairway Nor an eager voice on the phone And the tick of the clock seems to whisper "You're alone, empty heart, all alone" No romance, not a table for two There's a guy with a gal in the dark But the guy isn't you When the stars tumble down And you wait for the sun's rays to start When the love of your life is away Nothing breaks but the heart (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2006)
