HEART IS A DRUM Sign in or register

 
Free as a turning wheel
Circling around your iron will
See only what you feel
Keeps you turning when you're standing still

You try to run from trouble when it comes
You follow the drum
Keeping time with everyone

High as the light of day
Falling down across your lost highway
Why does it hurt this way
To come so far to find they've closed the gates

You've lost your tongue
And you fall from the pendulum
Your heart is a drum
Keeping time with everyone

Everyone
Hear the drum from the undertow
I need to find someone
To show me how to play it slow
And just let it go

Your eyes get stung
By the rays of the sinking sun
You follow the drum
Keeping time with everyone

Going beat beat beat
It's beating me down
Beat beat beat beat
It's beating me down
Day after day
It's turning around
Till all my days are drowning out
