Melt My Heart to Stone

Play Video
  • Right under my feet there's air made of bricks
    Pulls me down turns me weak for you
    I find myself repeating like a broken tune
    And I'm forever excusing your intentions
    That I give in to my pretendings
    Which forgive you each time
    Without me knowing
    They melt my heart to stone

    And I hear your words that I made up
    You say my name like there could be an us
    I best tidy up my head I'm the only one in love
    I'm the only one in love

    Each and every time I turn around to leave
    I feel my heart begin to burst and bleed
    So desperately I try to link it with my head
    But instead I fall back to my knees
    As you tear your way right through me
    I forgive you once again
    Without me knowing
    You've burnt my heart to stone

    And I hear your words that I made up
    You say my name like there could be an us
    I best tidy up my head I'm the only one in love
    I'm the only one in love

    Why do you steal my hand
    Whenever I'm standing my own ground
    You build me up, then leave me dead

    I hear your words you made up
    I say your name like there should be an us
    I best tidy up my head I'm the only one, in love
    I'm the only one in love Writer/s: Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, Francis Eg White
