Sometimes song lyrics seem written just for you. Here is one that I think works on multiple levels. Broke by Modest Mouse.

Broke account so I broke a sweat
I bought some things that I sort of regret about now.
Broke your glasses but it broke the ice
you said that I was an asshole and I paid the price.

Broken hearts want broken necks
I've done some things that I want to forget but I can't.
Broke my pace and ran out of time
Sometimes I'm so full of $#!# it should be a crime.

Broke a promise cause my car broke down
Such a classic excuse it should be bronze by now

Broke up and I'm relieved somehow
it's the end of the discussions that just go round and round
and round, and round, and round, and round,
and round, and round, it shouldn't have been anyway
No way, no way, that's right, that's right
uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh,
uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh,

It was like everthing was evidence of broken time
your livin on fancy wine
you'll drink it like turepentime
you're starting conversations
you don't even know the topic

Yeah, the song reminds me of a relationship I once had. Nevermind the fact that I certainly have spent money I haven't had. Of course, I've broken a promise or two in my day as well. I'm not sure that any of this has to do with anything...but there you have it. Some thoughts floating into the upper regions of my mind....
