I left your heartbeat in this town
I left your heartbeat in the ground
& when there's nothing for us now
You let me down I let you down
When your Grandfathers in the ground

We live in this old aching town
Our creaking bones won't make a sound
You felt the old bridge weigh us down
Let's try to turn our love around
& take the Dethbridge out of town


I left your cold heart in this town
With family headstones all around
& when there's nothing for us now
You let me down I let you down
with your Grandfather in the ground

    General CommentThe Dethbridge in Lethbridge is an actual place. There is this massive railroad bridge that goes over coulees and creeks that is right in the city of Lethbridge. The bridge is ridiculously tall and long, it's where a ton of people go to commit suicide. It's pretty infamous in the area.

    General CommentTwo lovers, one of the wants to get out of the town they've both grown up in and the other wishes to stay.
    Bitterness ensues.
    "You let me down. I let you down." perfectly sums up how these two people are moving in opposite directions.

    General CommentI think it's about a breakup instead. Over the death of the girl's grandfather. He wants to keep it going, but she is adamant. So he has to get out of the small town they both live in to avoid "her cold heart."
