“Trading Heartbeats”- Lyrics

 

Verse 1:
Wait, this will only take a moment of your time.
And watch as I trade your dying heartbeat for mine.
I found you crying for me alone you wait in the dark.
I know you’re shaking but everything is all right now.
Hold on, just hold on.

Chorus:
I’ll brush away the hair from your face that falls across your lovely eyes.
And all the fig leaves that still remain in the places that you try to hide.
So lay against me as I heal what is broken inside and what was taken away.
Feel your heart beat returning, I took your place.

Verse 2:
Let go of your memories from a love that he stole.
My touch is taking all your scars as my own.
I know this ash and the dirt feels like the place you belong.
I came to lay next to you so you can stand once again.

Bridge:
My lips to yours, I breath out, you breath in.
My life for yours, I breath out, you breath in.
So close to my chest you fall, go on breath out and breath in.
These arms will enfold you, breath out and breath in.
Let my heart beat with yours, just breath out just breath in.

Can you feel it beating?
Wait, this will only take a moment of your time.
