James Blunt – Heartbeat Lyrics

Heartbeat by James Blunt
Album : The Afterlove
Released : 2017
Genre : Pop
Label : Atlantic Records UK
Let it slide
All the choices I made
Let it burn
As it rolls down my face
Let it fall
Just to be the one again
But if I want
I won’t be loved by you at all
Let it slip
Every promise I break
Let it burn
All the blows that we trade
Let it fall
‘Cause this place has been condemned
And we both know
That we can’t be here anymore

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard
Should’ve run, run a hundred miles, never look back Jack
‘Cause now we can’t backtrack
And yeah, I know what you’ll say
Nothing can change, no one to blame
It’s on the tip of my tongue, here it comes, this is crazy
You should know that I would go back in a heartbeat
Just to make your heart beat

Let it fail
It’s too late to be saved
Let it roll
The rock across this grave
Let it blaze
There’s a darkness in the flame
And it’s lost
And we can’t bare it anymore
Let it slide
I can’t start it again
Let it burn
While it’s held in my hand
Let it fall
‘Cause this journey’s at its end
It’s only luck
That I was loved by you at all

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard
Should’ve run, run a hundred miles, never look back Jack
‘Cause now we can’t backtrack
And yeah, I know what you’ll say
Nothing can change, no one to blame
It’s on the tip of my tongue, here it comes, this is crazy
You should know that I would go back in a heartbeat
Just to make your heart beat

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard
Should’ve run, run a hundred miles, never look back Jack
‘Cause now we can’t backtrack
And yeah, I know what you’ll say
Nothing can change, no one to blame
It’s on the tip of my tongue, here it comes, this is crazy
You should know that I would go back in a heartbeat
Just to make your heart beat
