had a map
had a chance left in a stolen car
the cruise sure looked like heaven
but we knew we'd never make it that far
the sea fields and the poor towns flew by in the dark
and our plan my dear, there she slept, with one single shot
to the heart full of strings
heart full of finer things
there is salvation out there
there are reasons for us to care
hands on the wheel
tried to breathe and feel
cuz going out's the easy part
and if the devil was a poet, I doubt that he would know it
and I doubt that he could win your heart with simple words of flamelike love is just a prison if there is
no one there to listen
and the truth is shallow water if you learn nothing when it came

found a cause had a chance dream with a cheap guitar
I know that she'd believe me but she knew I'd never make it that far
she said they'd follow me down if I didn't give myself away
so you just hold on tight and close your eyes
and try damn hard not to think about yesterday
she said her father was a holy man who hid her from the world
like a puppet in an evening dress with plastic friends and pearls
and I was never much for dancing so I was leader of the band
and I played revolutionary waltzes with a revolver in my
hand over strings
a hand full of finer things
there is salvation in here
reasons for us to care
hands on the wheel
tried to breathe and feel
cuz going out's the easy part

and if the devil was a poet, I doubt that he would know it
and I doubt that he could win your heart with simple words of flame
like love is just a meaning of someone else's dreaming
and Heather's like Sunday

and if the devil was a poet, I doubt that he would know it
and I doubt that he could win your heart with simple words of flame
like love is just a meaning of someone else's dreaming
and Heather's like Sunday

    General CommentThis song is from before the time of Matthew Good Band - I believe it was released as just Matthew Good as the artist on a demo CD - Euphony in 1995

    General CommentWeird...I tried to find this song to download, but could only find it under the filename "Heaven's Like a Sunday", but when it plays in my media player it's called "Heather's Like Sunday". :/

    It's a good song though, it sounds more folky than most of MGB's stuff.
