lyrics

ALWAYS THE LAST TO KNOW

You gave me a fever before the war was over
I tried not to deceive you, such a regimented soldier
Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart
Always gets the best of me

But time was a bandit and silence was his ally
Oh heck I couldn’t stand it, so I became the bad guy
Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart
Always gets the best of me

Oh just let it beat
Beat the same old rhythm
Beat to the same old rhyme
Oh I’m always the last to know
Got a mind of it’s own
Fought this war all alone
I’m always the last to know

And now the battle’s over the wind moves like your slave
Wounds have healed and disappeared but I’ll take mine to the grave
Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart
Always gets the best of me

Oh just let it beat
Beat the same old rhythm
Beat to the same old rhyme
Oh I’m always the last to know
Got a mind of it’s own
Fought this war all alone
I’m always the last to know
Beat the same old time so I can count to four
And catch my breath before I hit the floor
If you’ve been blown apart just please arrest my heart
Oh I’m always the last to know

(middle tribal section...the war!!!)

Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart

Oh just let it beat
beat the same old rhythm
Beat to the same old rhyme
Oh I’m always the last to know
Got a mind of it’s own
Fought this war all alone
I’m always the last to know
Beat the same old time so I can count to four
And catch my breath before I hit the floor
If you’ve been blown apart just please arrest my heart
Oh I’m always the last to know
If you’ve been blown apart just please arrest my heart
Oh I’m always the last to know
