"Heartstrings" as written by John Buckner Crawford, Robert P. Brill, Terri Kathleen Nunn and Matt Reid....
Watching as you sleep so easy, wonder why
I'm wide awake and left alone shaken
Satisfied my need and desire, still I cry
Paralyzed, our love tearing me apart

I love you more each day
I love the music you play on my heartstrings
I feel you in every way
Reach for touch, you play on my heartstrings

We used to awake into morning, time stood still
I slept in your arms, content to go on dreaming
A nightmare too real to imagine, losing you
Paralyzed tonight, tearing me apart

I love you more each day
I love the music, you play on my heartstrings
I feel you in every way
Reach for touch, you play on my heartstrings

You wake to the sound of another day, smile at me
And I hate that I want you
But nobody ever made me feel
Feel the way I do now

Now, I love you more each day
I love the music, you play on my heartstrings
I feel you in every way
Reach for touch, you play on my heartstrings, you play on

    My InterpretationVery powerful, underrated and overlooked song. Terry Nunn's voice is in top top form and the instrumentation is 80's perfect with a wonderful guitar hook. AND I am intrigued by the ambiguous lyrics that imply a strong passionate love but negate the bliss by having undercurrents of despair and looming loss. No reason for the deep misgivings either. The clue is in the "I hate that I want you" line. It would seem that there is a resentment that one is so vulnerable to another.
