I'm ridin' round this cheater's town
Every place I go just bringing me down
I don't know when, I don't know if
I'm ever coming home

I got a broken heart torn all in two
'Cause every place I look I picture him and you
Don't know when, don't know if
I'm ever coming home
Yeah baby you lied to me, you lied to me
You stood there, you smiled, you opened your heart and you lied

And I don't know when, I don't know if
I'm ever coming home, never coming home

I'm drivin' slow, don't know where I'm goin'
I thought you loved me too, but I was always alone
I don't know when, I don't know if
I'm ever coming home - coming home

I got a broken heart torn all in two
'Cause everything I had I gave it all to you
And I don't know when, I don't know if
I'm ever coming home - coming home coming home

Oh baby you lied to me, you lied to me
You opened up your little black heart, you smiled and you lied

I don't know when, I don't know if
I'm ever coming home
Oh I don't know when, I don't know if
I'm ever coming home
Oh I don't know when, I don't know if
I'm ever coming home
coming home

I like this song. It's quite different from his early work, stronger and better. Yeah, his voice remembers Roy Orbison but I see no problem in it. Elvis? I don't think so.
if he ever meets a nice girl his career is so over.

Ooh. Thanks for the head's up. I can't stand the guy, but I'll just keep it between me and the guys. {#Whisper}
Wow, ya know, it occurs to me that this guy deserves some kind of award for maintaining a depressive style of songwriting for SOOO long. Unlike most artists, who eventually find love and either write great love songs or are no longer interesting (Melissa Etheridge? Elton John?) THIS guy has apparently never ever ever been dun right. He's good-looking, talented, intelligent... He shoulda hooked up with Phoebe!! (Obscure reference to his guest appearance on Friends)  {#Cry}

This late?

No disrespect intended to the estimable Mr. Issac*

His voice isn't as silky and sexy in this song as it normally it. I like the silky, sexy stuff but I like this too.

Unexpectedly good!  Wouldn't normally expect to rate Mr Isaak with an 8 but I reckon this deserves it.

Did someone say "cheetah's town"?
I think he's channeling Roy Orbison.

Heck, Chris Isaak could sing the phone book and it would sound good...


He has a great voice, and the echo effect on the guitar makes it a haunting song...  I dig it...


Thanks Bill. This album has really grown on me, especially the last few tracks.
