"William's Heart" as written by and Tracyanne Campbell....
A postcard of Byron by the bed
It's a reminder of every word that he said
To die in the arms of a twenty year old
A figure of porcelain with moves so bold
You'd love to have a heart of gold
You would have to have come from a better mould
To die in the arms of a twenty year old, twenty year old

Ending the shift of a sleepless night
Tossing and turning and holding on tight
To die in the arms of a twenty year old, twenty year old

Want to know about William's heart?
Is it broken in two? Who's feeling bad?
Is there enough of a spark to sparkle again?
Is he lost?
Does he need a friend?

Lying to those who know you the best
Keeping a secret close to your chest
To die in the arms of a twenty year old, twenty year old
The agony of the late night pub
Talking too much, old age is a curse
Want to know about William's heart?
Is it broken in two? Who's feeling bad?
Is there enough of a spark to sparkle again?

Is he lost? Does he need a friend?
William where have you gone?
Will you return to me?
William where have you gone?
Please return to me

If it's a single man or a single malt
That I take in my arms when I'm feeling low
You'll say honesty has made me cruel
I say you're soft and you're made of wool
You are made of wool

    My OpinionIt sounds like Tracyanne sings this with such ease, but she still manages to inject so much emotion into the song - I can't listen to this when I'm sad without tearing up.
