Radio XII, side B, track 4: “Edge Of A Broken Heart” by Vixen

Oh, Vixen, you wanna know what’s better than rock and roll?  Rock and roll played by hot chicks.  Was that sexist?  I would guess yeah, but rock and roll is not known for necessarily being respectful to women.  It’s a double-edge sword, Vixen, because on one hand you’ve got all these rock and roll songs celebrating love and glorifying women, and at the same time the women in those songs are treated like mere toys or sex objects.  There’s a reason that beer commercials don’t generally have classical music playing over them.  So it’s always refreshing when a group of women swoops in and takes the spotlight in a pretty male-dominated genre and rocks just as hard as the boys.  And let’s be honest, Vixen, it doesn’t hurt that you’re all gorgeous.  I’m just saying, I’d much rather watch you perform than, say, Axl Rose.  Much easier on the eyes.

“Edge Of A Broken Heart”

I can’t believe I could have been so blind, but love is strange

I thought about it for a long long time, but the truth remains

I don’t need another lonely night
To dry my tears

The answer’s plain as black an’ white
And I can see the picture very clear

I’ve been livin’ on the edge of a broken heart
I don’t wanna fall
I don’t wanna crawl
I’ve been livin’ on the edge of a broken heart
Don’t you wonder why
I gotta say goodbye

It isn’t like ya never had the chance to change your tune

Did ya think that I’m a dime a dance, well the dance is through

I’ve been doin’ things for way too long
But, baby, that’s over (baby, that’s over)
It won’t be easy but I gotta be strong
And if I wanna cry I don’t need your shoulder

I’ve been livin’ on the edge of a broken heart
I don’t wanna fall
I don’t wanna crawl
I’ve been livin’ on the edge of a broken heart
Don’t you wonder why
I gotta say goodbye

I’ll find someone else
Who’s nothin’ like you

Two can play the game as well

And you’re gonna be sorry, baby
When it’s over

<awesome Vixen jam>

I’ve been doin’ things for way too long
Baby, that’s over (baby, that’s over)
It won’t be easy but I got to be strong
And if I wanna cry I don’t need your shoulder

I’ve been livin’ on the edge of a broken heart
I don’t wanna fall
I don’t wanna crawl
I’ve been livin’ on the edge of a broken heart
Don’t you wonder why
I gotta say goodbye

I’ve been livin’ on the eeeeedge of a broken heart
