Lift your tired heart now darling
Lift it up into the air
And I will notice you in this crowded room
Whisper in your ears

Lift your tired head now darling
Lift it up into the air
And I will float to you in this crowded room
Let's get us out of here

I'm running out of love now darling
I really don't care
Ain't got no paper in my pockets now
But I will, I swear

Honey, I know you're tired of losing
It's a million to one, I know
Put your lily hand in mine
This is the ballad of a patient man

Lift your heart!

Lift your tired eyes now darling
Pull back your pretty hair
As long as my heart keeps pumping blood
Ain't gonna disappear

Running out of luck now darling
I really don't care
Ain't got no paper in my pockets now
But I will, I swear

Honey I know you're tired of losing
It's a million to one, I know
Put your lily hand in mine
This is the ballad of a patient man

Honey I ain't no lucky man
But I do all I can
I can buy you a diamond ring
Cause now these sad songs ain't gonna sting
I can buy you a ballroom gown and
Twirl you around, somewhere downtown
This is the ballad of a patient man

Lift your heart, Lift your heart
Lift your heart

As long as my heart keeps pumping blood
As long as my heart keeps pumping blood
As long as my heart keeps pumping blood
As long as my heart keeps pumping blood
Pumping blood
Pumping blood
Pumping blood
Pumping blood
Pumping blood
Pumping blood
Pumping blood
Pumping blood
Blood
Blood
Blood
Blood
Blood
Blood
Blood
Blood
