In A Heartbeat (4min41)

Here we stand before you
Holding out our hands
Putting on a show for each
Woman child and man

We make a mockery of these proceedings
As nothing we say will last
And someday all these promises
Will get buried in the past

You speak with true conviction
But your intentions are not true
But I am blinded by reality
Because all I see is you

Past the dreams of a broken mind
Beyond the doors you will find
A lonely place a prison cell
A place to wait that’s a lot like hell

You never cared and you never tried
Evil games and foolish pride
You’ll never reach where you belong
Because in a heartbeat you’ll be gone


You’re the one that’s cold at night
You’re the one that’s dying in side
You’re the one that’s lost it all
You’re the one that’s losing your mind
You’re the one that’s going through hell
You’re the one with a cross to bear
The way you treated me was very wrong
And in a heartbeat you’ll be gone

And when I said I love you
For sure you said it back
But I know you never meant it
I want to take it back

You’re screaming in the after glow
You’re crying but no nobody knows
You’re trying but nobody cares
Because no one you love is there
You’re acting your tough as nails
But life has caught up with your tales
And making out on your own
Means making it out all alone for you

And when I said I trust you
With every part of me
You learned which ways to hurt me
You learned which ways to burn me

I want to take you to your new place
The one you’ll call your home
It’s dark its cold it’s lonely
And like me you’ll be alone

Your hear whispers in the coldest night
That’s you conscience breaking through
But you have used up all your chances
And I’m forever done with you

Burn up all the memories
Close the coffin door
Moving into days of new
A future without you
