Old Dominion, “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart” lyrics:
I wonder if Jack and Diane ever made it / After the drums and the guitars all faded / Was the best they could do good enough / Or did the heartland just swallow ’em up / How did my mom and my dad ever do it / If there were troubles then we never knew it / I guess they had each other and that was enough.
You know you can’t keep the ground from shaking / No matter how hard you try / You can’t keep the sunsets from fading, you gotta treat your love like / You’re jumping off a rope swing maybe ’cause the whole thing is really just a shot in the dark / You gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart / You gotta love like there’s no such thing as a broken heart.
What am I gonna tell my kids when they see / All of this bulls–t that goes down on TV / When the whole world is down on its luck / I gotta make sure they keep that chin up / Cry when it hurts, laugh when it’s funny / Chase after the dream don’t chase after the money / And know we got each other, that’s whats’ up.
