Story behind the song
I wrote this song to/about a friend who was going through a painful break-up. Since I have been in a stable marriage myself for 25 years, I wrote the song from the perspective of a mutual friend who's been through the same thing several times.
Lyrics
Heartache Refugee Hello my friend why you lookin’ down I’ve grown accustomed to your smile But now you mope around and wear a frown And spend your nights in self-exile All these years I’ve seen your life go up and down You’ve seen the best and worst of me And now I see you’re looking through the lost and found Another heartache refugee You know I’ve been there once or twice before I know exactly how you feel If I may use a well-worn metaphor I think you got a dirty deal All these years I’ve seen your life go round and round And you have seen both sides of me And now I see that this has turned you upside down Another heartache refugee I know you’ve tried I know you’ve cried I’ve seen with it my own two eyes I’m on your side I know she lied Still I hate to see you agonize But don’t you worry now my dear old friend You know like all things this shall pass It doesn’t mean that you have reached the end Your time will come to you at last All these years I’ve seen your life go up and down You’ve seen the best and worst of me And now I see that this has turned you upside down Another heartache refugee And now I see you lying in the lost and found Another heartache refugee Another refugee like me
