HEARTBEAT

I heard her screaming like a train whistle, Let's off steam and she never rolls back, Picking up speed like a black missile, Dropping hot tears on the cold steel tracks. 

And I don't mind if you knock on my window, I've been lonesome and you've been in my dreams, When you're here I don't feel quite so low 

When you're gone it ain't as bad as it seems. 

chorus, Hold me, oh hold me 

Squeeze me so hard feel that beat, Heartbeat, oh heartbeat, 

Back to back won’t you feel my heat 

Feel my heat 

I finally found her at the top of the stairs, I plead with her to take a ride, those watery eyes had lost all care, She said I'll meet you at the Great Divide. 

chorus, Hold me, oh hold me 

Squeeze me so hard feel my beat, Heartbeat, oh heartbeat, 

Back to back won’t you feel my heat. 

One of us had better find an anchor, we've been drifting far too long, When she's here I must remember to thank her, Everyone else is long, long gone 

If we keep on floating without a fight 

Waves will keep us in constant motion Find an anchor and hold on tight 

Or float alone across the vast, grey ocean. 

chorus, Hold me, oh hold me 

Squeeze me so hard you can feel my heat, Heartbeat, oh heartbeat, 

Back to back won’t you feel my heat, feel my heat, 

Hold me, baby hold me 

Baby hold me so hard feel my heat. 

I said just one time, baby just one time, baby just one time.

 

NO ONE AT YOUR DOOR 

Is it me or is it him, I don't know the score, This game is wearing thin, You don't need me anymore. 

chorus, There's no looking back, No one’s at your door, Standing back to back, You don't need me anymore. Veil from your face, Get on off the floor, I've already been replaced, You don't call me anymore. 

chorus There's no looking back, No one’s at your door, When we’re standing back to back, You don't need me anymore. Anymore, any, any, anymore baby anymore 

With her finger on my lips, Asking me to hush, But her hands and her hips, Saying Joey what's the rush? 

chorus No, no there's no looking back, No one’s at your door, And when we’re standing back to back, You don't need me anymore. Anymore, baby anymore, baby anymore 

Baby anymore, baby anymore 

 

WORLD GONE CRAZY In a world gone crazy, In a world of sin, Cyclone ripping me out of my shoes, Whirlpool sucks me in, Teardrops on my alarm clock, Fun never ends till the ringing stops, Rotted fruit on your family tree, broken branches right on top of me. 

chorus 

I hear your voice, I hear the rumble, Baby, I'm trouble. Personalities, I haven't met, Gonna do things I'm gonna live to regret, World grinding to a halt, Friend of a friend who said it ain’t your fault. In a boat adrift at sea, Don't know what's come over me, See the world in a wine bottle haze, Sure know how to turn a phrase 

chorus I hear your voice, I hear the rumble, Baby when I'm with you, trouble. 

Gone crazy, world of sin, 

World gone crazy, world of sin 

Personalities, I haven't met, Gonna do things I'm gonna live to regret, World grinding to a halt, Friend of a friend who said it ain’t my fault. On a boat in adrift at sea, I don't know what's come over me, See the world in a wine bottle haze, Sure know how to turn a phrase, 

chorus I hear the rumble, Baby when I'm with you, 

I’m in a world of trouble, I’m in a world of trouble. 

 

IF TEARS WERE DIRT 

If tears were dirt, I’d need a shovel, get me outta here. 

I ain’t gonna live with this broken heart. 

And I know you're hurt, hasn't been the best of years. We ain’t gonna live a day apart, day apart. 

Lessons learned sure can bring a flood of tear. I'm gonna sleep in this box of pine. I raised my fist I told you I didn't mean it dear. I was trying to make you mine. When you see red, you surely went and made it clear. I'm gonna sleep in the backyard long. And the air is thick, mixing with my tears. In a few more hours I’d be long, long gone.

 

SHOW ME YOUR SCARS Show me your scars, what's your concern, I won't turn away, they've all been earned. They're not your flaws, rest head on chest, Their noble cause, is laid to rest. 

chorus When your thoughts run like rivers, I will slow them down, When you lose your way, I'll turn you back around, When you drift away from shore, You'll be lost and found, in my arms, baby in my arms, Show me your scars. 

Vanish those scars, They’re just skin deep, Let down your guard, Not yours to keep. 

chorus When your thoughts run like rivers, I will slow them down, When you lose your way, I'll turn you back around, When you drift away from shore, You'll be lost and found, in my arms, baby in my arms, Show me your scars. Show me your scars. 

Show me your scars. Show me your scars. 

PASSION TIPPED ARROW 

So, one last question, I’ll ask of you, I'll let you get some rest. Has my passion tipped arrow, been removed from your chest? Did you break it in a thousand, did you let it turn to dust. And when you're smiling, deep in your sleep, you don't think of us? You mumble names, I do not know, sounds that tear me apart. And your passion tipped arrow has fallen from my heart. Pale moon glow, alabaster skin, your breathing so sublime. Your lips, love, and future dreams, I once thought were mine. Desires just a waiting game, needs a flame to ignite. Silence save her stifled cries as you sleep through our last night. 

So, one last question, I’ll ask of you, then I'll let you get some rest. Has my passion tipped arrow, been removed from your chest
