Cowboy Junkies - Damaged From The Start Lyrics




Here's a man of sorrows, children
As constant as the sea
Searching for a heart
That's lost it's stone.

She moves like a serpent, baby
Through time she drags her tail
Of all the broken hearted
Left behind.

Let's just sit here a little bit longer
With these bruised and battered hearts
Let's just say they were damaged
From the start.

There they go like shadows, darling
Between this world and that
Never knowing where the light
Will shine.

But I can tell you one thing, sweetheart
We share a place in time
Nothing more is needed
'cause you're mine.

Let's just sit here a little bit longer
With these bruised and battered hearts
Let's just say they were damaged
From the start.

Such a perfect pairing, dear one,
The Pacific and it's rock
A battle weighed on scales
We can not know.

Let's just sit here a little bit longer
Oh how we broke each others hearts
Let's just say they were damaged
From the start.

Let's just sit here a little bit longer
These scarred and healing hearts
Let's just say they were damaged
From the start.

    To Richard Lucas, this listener is also 73, also loves the Cowboy Junkies. I would urge you, if you haven't already, to listen to The Trinity Sessions.

    Stunningly beautiful.

  4. Renato Vieira

    Love from Portugal, great, great concert at the CCB, thank you all Timmings brothers, and specialy Margo, whos voice has been enchanting me since the late 80´s

  5. Richard Lucas

    Wow! I'm 73 and just now discovering Cowboy Junkies...the sound is a perfect mix- a beautiful voice, a mellow band and words of feeling. I shall be adding Cowboy cuts rto my iPod. Thank you, Margo

    How fortunate you are ! When you find "your album" it will be the sweetest balm you could hope for. Michael Timmins is one of my favorite songwriters & coupled with Margo's voice... perfection!

    Great song. While searching for Canadian artist I found this group on CMT.ca. I don't know if CMT stands for Canadian Music Television or Country Music Television but if it is the latter than this group for sure does not belong there. I found other artist who were nowhere near country on that site and it is disturbing. It is almost as bad in the states with groups like Little Big Town and Lady Antebellum as well as artist like Taylor Swift..etc..etc. It would be nice to have country be country.

  7. Magnus Larsson

    I am totally addicted to the voice of Margo Timmins and I love the sound of the band. And so it has been from teh first time i heard them in late 80´s. I will buy this record...too.

  8. Tony Young

    Always been a Junkies fan from way back when.
