Graham Parker & The Rumour - The Beating Of Another Heart lyrics

She comes from the hardest town
they build you up to let you down and
leave you with an armour hard as steel

It's not the chaos or the heat
or the noises from the street but
something inside she has to beat that
shoots out a nerve
causes judgements to swerve
and makes her feel that something must be wrong

She'll attempt to resist
and pretend it don't exist when it does

But if ever her defence drop
love takes a shot pop
Baby you can't stop
The beating of another heart
The beating of another heart
yeah
Sometimes she needs the beating of another heart

All the steps we seem to take
are sometimes stairways to escape from
All the things that were supposed to come
And there's a threat when letting go
Showing things she'll never show but
I won't give in now I know
as I ask a friend
how on earth can I send
a little bit of me to her

She'll attempt to resist
and pretend I don't exist when I do

But if ever her defence drop
love takes a shot pop
Baby you can't stop
The beating of another heart
The beating of another heart
yeah
Sometimes she needs the beating of another heart

The pounding goes on forever
at night when we are here together
They say that people get too clever for love
but I know

But if ever her defence drop
love takes a shot pop
Baby you can't stop
The beating of another heart
The beating of another heart
yeah
Sometimes she needs the beating of another heart
She needs the beating of another heart
She needs the beating of another heart
