Diary Of A Heartless Man

he was only seventeen, sitting at the table
writing out poetry fast as he was able
she looked around the dining room, said her name was rachel
he looked up with half a smile, said i’ll write you in my fable

oh de oh de oh how the words they ran
oh de oh de oh from the diary of a heartless man

they hitched up to auckland city, a playground in spring
he chased her round the flower bed, caught her at the swing
by the time that they got home they couldn’t live apart
he gave her a starry night, she gave him her heart

oh de oh de oh how the words they ran
oh de oh de oh from the diary of a heartless man

then one day he crashed his bike & broke his leg in two
before she left his side she asked “is there something i can do?”
well he asked for his diary from the drawer in their room
before she brought it back to him she read a page or two

oh de oh de oh how the words they ran
oh de oh de oh from the diary of a heartless man

well love is blind, love is deaf, love is downright dumb
she stormed around the dining room & cursed that two-time bum
she’d never fallen in love before, she’ll never fall again
poets you can count her out, she’ll take her pick of men

oh de oh de oh how the words they ran
oh de oh de oh from the diary of a heartless man
