Heart Explodes

Album: Easter Is Cancelled (2019)
  • I'm standing on a cliff top
    And I'm looking out to sea
    The sirens of the Netherlands
    Are beckoning me
    I'm trying to write a ballad
    That makes you want to stay
    They're easy to come up with
    But they're difficult to play
    'Cause I know what I'm supposed to do
    But I don't know if I can
    Sell the world a story
    'Bout a woman and a man
    Who meet at the beginning
    Together they belong
    It feels like they are winning
    Until everything goes wrong

    Take me to the open road
    I'll run until my heart explodes
    Take me to the open road
    Or give me back the love I'm owed
    'Til my heart explodes
    'Til my heart explodes

    I'm standing in the weather
    And I can't open the door
    Then suddenly it hits me
    This isn't my house any more
    I knew you wouldn't listen
    So I've given you carte blanche
    To build a clown asylum
    On the Neverland Ranch
    I can't believe it's over
    I can't believe I'm free
    To sleep with anybody
    Who wants to sleep with me
    I never wrote that ballad
    There isn't such a song
    I tried to make you happy
    And then everything went wrong

    Take me to the open road
    I'll run until my heart explodes
    Take me to the open road
    Or give me back the love I'm owed
    'Til my heart explodes
    'Til my heart explodes

    Freedom
    Freedom
    Free to love again
    Like the love you never showed
    Love 'til our hearts explode
    'Til my heart explodes
    'Til my heart explodes Writer/s: Daniel Hawkins, Francis Patterson, Justin Hawkins, Rufus Taylor
