Heartbeat

Written 1986

Verse 1:
listen to my heart beat
listen to the rain
your last words I repeat
but it's all in vain
the meaning's the same
my heart is beating slowly
barely a snail's pace
without you I'm so lonely
the memory of your face I can't erase
the memory of your face I can't erase

Refrain:
at one time my heart would beat
and echo like a lion's roar
at one time when I'd hear her feet
dance across the floor
I'd feel complete but it's no more
I'd feel complete but it's no more

Verse 2:
hear the beat of my heart
it sounds so far away
our lives are forever apart
her love is yesterday
and there to stay
my heart is barely beating
any moment it might be still
watch my life retreating
buried in a hill leave her my will
buried in a hill leave her my will

Refrain.

Verse 3:
hear my heart if you listen
it's beating stronger now
all it took was one person
she knows more than I'd allow
and I don't know how
my heart is beating faster
could this be love
every time I see her
speaking's not enough
she's all I think of
speaking's not enough
she's all I think of

Refrain variation (last time):
once again my heart would beat
and echo like a lion's roar
once again when I'd hear her feet
dance across the floor
I'd feel complete for evermore
I'd feel complete for evermore
I'd feel complete for evermore
I'd feel complete for evermore
