    My Favorite Deja Vu shows what Raggedy Edge can be as a quartet, with Dutch Workman filling in on drums and percussion and John Huston stepping in with bass and keyboards. These two experienced sidemen from Utah bring unplumbed levels of musicianship to the songs of Lynn and Bob, not only a sweet sensation for them, but for listeners as well. The CD starts with another self-analysis by Bob about life from the beginning to the day he met Lynn and looking on into the future of days that promise to be more favorite days to look back on. A little Hawaii rock slides into hardcore country that segues into the irony of Good Woman Blues. Traveling Song showcases Raggedy Edge's propensity to write in the American Standards style, followed by the gentle ode to youth Playground Swings. It's back to the blues and the rocking Push and Pull of Time's acoustic power lead as only Bob can do it to bring this strongest set yet to a close.

about

Break My Heart is a blues sort of song, with its three verses exploring different aspects of unrequited love.

lyrics

Break My Heart
(Farley and Perdzock)
I wish I could love you, I wish I could say
That I'm all about you, but baby that ain't the way
I feel in my heart, I feel in my soul
Baby, there's somebody else I've got in control
I don't want to hurt you, I don't want you to cry
But if that's what it takes to make you say good-bye
Go ahead and break your heart
Go ahead and tear it all apart
Go ahead and break your heart, and toss it away

I wish you could love me, I wish you could say
That you're all about me, And that would be the way
You feel in your heart, you feel in your soul
Why you looking right through me like that? You don’t have to be so cold
I don't want hurt, I sure don't want to cry
But if that's what it takes to keep you by my side
Go ahead and break my heart
Go ahead and tear it all apart
Go ahead and break my heart, and toss it away

When somebody takes your love and tears it all apart
Clean it up, wrap it up, let the healing start
Don't be too concerned, you’re gonna feel a little smart
When you rip the bandage off your unrequited broken heart
And toss it away

I wish I could love you, I wish you could love me
Wish that we could hurry up and get where we want to be
Feel it in our hearts, feel it in our souls
Feel like we can live without somebody else in control
We don't want to hurt, and we don't want to cry
But if we got to get on the spot and give it another try
Let's go ahead and break some hearts
Go ahead and tear them all apart
All at once or a la carte
And toss'em away
