Heartbreak in Silhouette - Jim Reeves (吉姆·裏夫斯)

I listened to an old friend

Describe the girl he'd met

In memory I could see her

Heartbreak in silhouette

He said her hair was golden

Her eyes were violet

It surely had to be her

Hearbreak in silhouette


He said that when he kissed her

Her kisses were like wine

And suddenly I wondered

If she'd break his heart like mine

But I sat there in silence

And smoked my cigarette

His heart would soon discover

Heartbreak in silhouette


With shining eyes he told me

About the night they'd met

My own heart kept remembering

Heartbreak in silhouette


Outside the rain kept falling

Recalling old regrets

Then she stood in the doorway

Heartbreak in silhouette

At first she didn't see us

Because the lights were dim

As she chetted with her new love

She had eyes for only him

My friend sat that there in silence

And not one word was said


Two broken hearts were sharing

Heartbreak in silhouette
