"Heart of Stone" as written by and Tim Brantley....
Ran into an old friend, I was caught by surprise
But not by the situation, by the look in his eyes
Stopped me after a double-take, said, "Man, where have you been?"
And I could tell that his years had been long and been hard and feel pain he was in

And if I wasn't me
Well, who would I have become?
And I could just as easily be a man
With a heart of stone
I could have married a different girl
I could've made a mistake
Now, I've rushed a million things
It was worth the wait
It was worth the wait

I told him sometimes I play in the bars on Saturday nights
And I've been back and forth between here and New York a couple of times
He said he married this girl from our class, really gave it his all
But that her daddy was rich and that girl was a bitch and they split in the fall

And if I wasn't me
Well, who would I have become?
And I could have just as easily be a man
With a heart of stone
I could've married a different girl
I could've made a mistake
Now I've rushed a million things
It was worth the wait
It was worth the wait

And if I wasn't me
Well, who would I have become?
And I could have just as easily be a man
With a heart of stone
I could've married a different girl
I could've made a mistake
Now I've rushed a million things
It was worth the wait
It was worth the wait

I fell in love on these streets, man, and I had a reason to stay
But this place is a hole you might never get out if you don't look for a way
Funny, what seemed important then doesn't matter at all
You can run for it now
You can run for it now
