"Heart of Nowhere" as written by and Charles Fink....
(Verse)
Your parents hide, they live in fear,
They're lying restless as the dawn gets near.
But you wanna live, you wanna try
You hear the whisper of the world outside.

So take a chance and leave tonight
Sarah's waiting in the car outside.
About the door your father wakes
You let your anger and your sadness break.

(Chorus)
And when you turn around, he's laid down on the ground
And now you're standing with your finger on the pulse.
And then an open door, two footsteps on the floor
And now you're standing with your finger on the pulse.

(Verse)
It's Sarah's face, her worried eyes
Pulls back the door and gently steps inside.
The nighttime with a charcoal grin
The fuzzing diamonds on her pallid skin.

(Chorus)
And when she turns around, he's laid down on the ground
And now you're standing with your finger on the pulse.
And then an open door, two footsteps on the floor
And now you're standing with your finger on the pulse.

(Bridge)
If I don't belong by you
I don't belong anywhere.
You know I'd follow you
To the heart of nowhere.
It's just too kinds of people
God fearing and the godless, cowards and the faithless
And I would stand by you.

    Song MeaningGreat Song, can't believe no-one's commented on this yet.

    I think it's about two people who are in love and want to make a break at life on their own but their respective parents forbid it. It's possibly also about growing up and wanting to be your own person.

    Also, there's maybe a pessimistic view of religion in there as well. Perhaps the 'God fearing' and the 'cowards' are the religious ones and the 'godless' and 'faithless' are atheists?

    Song MeaningThe adolescent boy's parents are constantly worried for their son, and scared he'll do something stupid. The boy, however, sees them as overbearing and protective as a result and just wants to explore the world around him free from control. Sarah is involved in a more romantic than lustful relationship with this kid. He's planning an escape with her.
