Graham Parker — The Beating Of Another Heart lyrics

Intro G Em Bm G C D

G D
She comes from the hardest town
Em Bm C
They build you up to let you down and
D Em G Bm D
Leave you with an armour hard as steel

G D
It's not the chaos or the heat
Em Bm C
Or the noises from the street but
D
Something inside she has to beat that

Em Bm Em Bm
Shoots out a nerve causes judgements to swerve
C G D
And makes her feel that something must be wrong

Em Bm
She'll attempt to resist
C G D
And pretend it don't exist when it does

C D
But if ever her defence drop
C D
Love takes a shot pop
C D
Baby you can't stop

G
The beating of another heart
Em C
The beating of another heart yeah
D Em D G
Sometimes she needs the beating of another heart

Em Bm G C D
(just chords)

G D
All the steps we seem to take
Em Bm C D
Are sometimes stairways to escape from
Em G Bm D
all the things that were supposed to come

G D
And there's a threat when letting go
Em Bm C
Showing things she'll never show but
D
I won't give in now I know

Em Bm Em Bm
As I ask friend how on earth can I send
C G D
A little bit of me to her

Em Bm
She'll attempt to resist
C G D
And pretend I don't exist when I do

C D
But if ever her defence drop
C D
Love takes a shot pop
C D
Baby you can't stop

G
The beating of another heart
Em C
The beating of another heart yeah
D Em D Em D
Sometimes she needs the beating of another heart

C# D A
The pounding goes on forever
C# D A
at night when we are here together
C# D A D
They say that people get too clever for love

Em C
but I know

Solo

C D
But if ever her defence drop
C D
Love takes a shot pop
C D
Baby you can't stop

G
The beating of another heart
Em C
The beating of another heart yeah
D Em D G
Sometimes she needs the beating of another heart
D G D C
She needs the beating of another heart
D G D Em Bm G C D
She needs the beating of another h-e-a-are-t

Fade on Em G
