Atlas Sound - Only Love Can Break Your Heart (N. Young / Psychic TV Cover)


Stayed up late as usual. Patrik suggested we cover this song by Psychic TV so I went to solarseek to download it, having never heard it before. All I got was results for Neil Young. Then I heard Psychic TV's version on Myspace. I immediately fell in love with the song but got busy. This morning I could not sleep so I thought I'd listen to it again. It actually made me cry. So I got out of bed and recorded it as the sun started coming through my blinds. I read this song was written for Nash after he split with Joni Mitchell. To me, the song captures the solitude you feel when your a kid, and how it can be comforting... then you get older and solitude loses its magic.

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Someone should call him and see if he can come out
Try to lose the down that he's found
But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart?

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Yes only love can break your heart
(Repeat to fade)

Two down.. a thousand more to go....
