In a Heartbeat
In the smallest movement of your hand
In a silence
In the wonderful cover of night

Under blankets and sheets where I sat at your feet in that intoxicating place
Where desired unspoken and speak
with the dull hear the blue off the muted TV
lines we've drawn and let down
as we adjust our boundaries
In this moment
With a force-field of brazen uncertainty
In a friend’s house
In the living room by shaky candlelight
Waiting on a friend to leave

Now your legs splay across my lap
My hands rest on your knees
Pendulum pulse in my ears like a drunken timpany
On a fence stumbling beside you to reunite this task and treaty
with courage and clumsiness with bravery and stupidity

Woah! You better watch your step!
You’re breaking a heart that you haven't won yet

Woah! You better watch your step!
As your moving past moments that I cannot forget

So bade your actions and holding your debts
Under time that we sold between loss and regret!

There’s an album in my head of the songs that we sang
I can’t quite get the verse and the chorus seems tame
Every other day or so I google image search your name
But there’s only one picture and it’s always the same

I haven't memorized the lyrics
I’ve downloaded the sound .mp3
Printed out the bass tabs
Faked my way around the key
I’m working on a version to jog your memory
Although, maybe a jog seems ambitious,
Maybe we should crawl,

Woah! You better watch your step!
You’re breaking a heart that you haven't won yet

Woah! You better watch your step!
As your moving past moments that I cannot forget,

Woah! You better watch your step!
You better watch your step!
