The Hardest of Hearts

This song… is so Rico. He’s the one with the supposedly hard heart.

This part:

There is love in your body but you can’t get it out
It gets stuck in your head, won’t come out of your mouth
Sticks to your tongue and shows on your face
That the sweetest of words have the bitterest taste

He has hidden depths of kindness, is surprisingly sympathetic and empathetic, but he’s been so closed off and shut off for so long that he can’t seem to acknowledge how he feels or anything.

Darling heart, I loved you from the start
But you’ll never know what a fool I’ve been
Darling heart, I loved you from the start
But that’s no excuse for the state I’m in

And that part, too, that’s him, though the sweetest of words and bitterest taste are the main ones.

Frankie, of course, being his undoing, she makes this part true:

Tenderest touch leaves the darkest of marks
And the kindest of kisses break the hardest of hearts

Kabobbles Sing Along is just what I think when I hear songs. I sometimes see images when I hear lyrics, pictures or movies in my head. Sometimes I relate it to stories. My interpretation of the songs and lyrics are probably nothing like their original intent.
