Liner Notes: 

It is pouring rain and as I heard the rain on the window sill I and watched a car go up the hill I thought ... hmmm ... Haven't done a country tune for a bit...

Lyrics: 

V1
I hear the rain fall
so fast and hard on
the window sill

I see your tail lights
go slow and steady
up heartbreak hill

PC1
and I know this is not
just another break-up drill

C
sometimes I don't know why
I say or do the things I do
especially when they only
hurt me and anger you

sometimes I don't know why
I can't be a better friend
especially times like right now
when we face the end

oh sometimes I don't know
why I let you go...

V2
I feel the cool draft like
a prelude to frost
of winter's chill

I'm an expert witness of
false testimony
and stubborn will

PC2
because I know the truth
and it is that I love you still

C
sometimes I don't know why
I say or do the things I do
especially when they only
hurt me and anger you

sometimes I don't know why
I can't be a better friend
especially times like right now
when we face the end

oh sometimes I don't know
why I let you go...

B
maybe one clear night
we'll both see the moon rise
and remember those stars
that once shone in our eyes
maybe then we will
finally realize that love is
stronger and more important
than any words said tonight

PC2
because there is nothing
more powerful than love that is right

C
sometimes I don't know why
I say or do the things I do
especially when they only
hurt me and anger you

sometimes I don't know why
I can't be a better friend
especially times like right now
when we face the end

oh sometimes I don't know
why I let you go...

Very true, breakups are sometimes so confusing and sad. Many people can relate to this one. Nice write, especially like the reference to going up heartbreak hill.

Beautiful and heart breaking words here Kahlo. Its been such a great ride with you this year, enjoyed all your songs and interactions. If I had more time I would want to adapt this one for a collab.
