"Only Love Can Break Your Heart"

When you were young
and on your own
How did it feel
to be alone?
I was always thinking
of games that I was playing.
Trying to make
the best of my time.

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
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
Yes, only love
can break your heart

songwriter: Neil Young

performed by: Neil Young

date released: 1970 by Neil Young

Neil Young supposedly wrote this song for his former bandmember, Graham Nash (of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young), who had recently broken up with his girlfriend, Joni Mitchell. Its simple lyrics belie its considerable attention to detail in the orchestration of instruments.
