​Five Hearts Breaking

This song is by Alejandro Escovedo and appears on the album Gravity (1992).

The sky is black, Billy feels bad
Today he thinks that he'd be better off dead
He hears the pain roaring in his head
He'll close his eyes
And the world turns red

Her name was Hope
Her hair was blacker than the sky
She had a smile that made the devil cry
She held is hands, looked him in the eye
And I said "Believe, believe
And everything will be fine
Everything will be all right"

Today's the day you can bet on that
I heard her close the door
She ain't looking back
A twist of fate or a stroke of luck
Well, the answer's over there
Beyond the wishing well
Everything will be all right

Take the fire in your hands
And place it at her feet
Walk upon the mountain
Then you'll sail across the sea
Her eyes are taken from the stars above
Her voice is five hearts breakin'
Her voice is five hearts breakin'

The sky's a fire waiting to die
And his heart's as empty as a dead man's eye
She held his hands looked him in the eye
And said "Believe, believe"
And everything will be fine
Everything will be all right
