Only Another Broken Heart.
Copyright, 1894, by Jas. N. Brennan.
Words and Music by Jas. N. Brennan.

"You must give your lover up," a doting father said
To his only daughter. Nellie, who for her lover plead.
"Listen well, my darling. I'll tell the reason why-
Oh. cheer up, I can't consent-ah, there now, do not cry.
Once there was a maiden, like you, both pure and true,
Married 'midst the roses while her heart so sorrow knew;
But one day a sad blow fell, and with its cruel dart,
Left a broken home and, oh, so sad, another broken heart.

'Only another broken heart,' we heard her sadly say,
As firmly but gently loving friends led this fair maid away.
How fondly she loved him, tho' now far apart-
Wide oceans roll between-another bright future blighted evermore,
Another broken heart.

"At a railroad station, one day stood a maiden fair,
Watching every new arrival with a sad and eager stare;
Just then the prison van drove quickly to the yard,
And from it came a young man between the prison guard.
With a cry of anguish she rushed unto his side,
Threw her arms around his neck and kissed his tears aside.
Speculation's fever led him from honor to depart-
Left him a convict and she so sad-another broken heart.- Chorus.

"In a quiet churchyard now that little maiden sleep,
And the myrtle and the ivy vines o'er her grave they creep,
And she was your mother, my own darling wife,
It was I who broke her heart-one so young in life.
I see her sad face as she kissed me o'er again,
Crying, 'Though you go to prison my love remains the same;'
This is why I ask you from your lover to depart­I've caused another hope to vanish-another broken heart." - Chorus.
