Dr. Feelgood — Heartbeat lyrics

(peter staines)

Night has fallen
All is still
The room is empty
I miss you so bad
Sitting in the moonlight
I think of times gone by
Painful memories
Bringing tears to my eyes

I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here

I thought I heard a heartbeat

Temperature's rising
The walls are closing in
I can't stand the feeling
Here it comes again

I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here

I thought I heard a heartbeat

Night sounds like silence
Sorrow(? ) in the air
I hear something breathing
But there ain't no-one there

I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here

Close my eyes and a face appears
Faded picture rolling back the years
Holding on to a memory
Same sweet sound - coming back to me

- harmonica solo -

Temperature's rising
The walls are closing in
I can't stand that feeling
Here it comes again

I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here
I thought I heard a heartbeat
But you ain't here

I thought I heard a heartbeat
I thought I heard a heartbeat
I thought I heard a heartbeat...
