BEFORE (THE NEXT HEARTACHE FALLS) (6:37)

Before (The Next Heartache Falls) - 1991

"Word of Mouth's" finale, is a rather understated piece. Soft beats and a rather - against the grain - melody, mix well with it's keyboard heavy roots. Again, I found this song lacks enough character of it's own to really distinguish it.

Lyrics

A freezing cold December brings a chill into my heart
And fills me with an emptiness now we're so far apart
A Lost in my confusion now through everything I see
Oh won't you come on back I need you here with me

Before
Before
Before the next heartache falls
Before
Before the next heartache falls

Lonely as the darkness casts a spell upon the night
I'm past the point of caring if I'm wrong or I am right
I wonder if you realise oh just what it means to me
Listen to me darlin' I'm just let you see

Before
Before
Before the next heartache falls
Before
Before the next heartache falls

Early morning finds me at the house upon the hill
Everywhere the laughter reminds me of you still
I'm haunted by the memories all too easy to recall
I would dare to mention there's a lesson for us all

Before
Before
Before the next heartache falls
Before
Before the next heartache falls

Tears already falling like the rain upon the ground
When the storm is over no trace of it is found
Never will I understand how you vanished like the rain
Tell me that you'll come back and let me live again

Before
Before
Before the next heartache falls
Before
Before the next heartache falls
