A Summer Serenade (Heartbeats)

lyrics

You can run your mouth, scream out loud, but you can't take my passion
You've murdered my heart in some ill mannered fashion
In times of despair you'll always need a distraction
Today is the day I turn my thoughts into action
But I don't know how.

Today is the day I turn my thoughts into action
I'd hoped to stay clear or regret and distraction.
Today is the day I turn my thoughts into action
I'd hoped to stay clear of regret and distraction.

My plan for a summer serenade isn't too far from reach
Blood on my hands and a secret to keep
If I could just close my eyes I could get some sleep
Rid my head of the terror that you bring
To touch your skin is an infectious disease
That I can't get rid of
It's killing me
A life time of agony.

The truth and true love was never enough
To quench your thirst of my blood and guts
You promised you'd change
You turned love into hate
blah blah blah...
To rid you of that plague that let your beauty fade
The death and destruction each time you say my name
You killed this romance.

You can't fool me
Accept your fate
You screamed my name
You plant your seeds far too deep
You knew they'd be the death of me.

Death has been calling
Can't say that you're sorry
The future's apparent
There's no place to hide.
I wish that I could have stopped that curse
But now I know I'll never escape this hell on earth.
I'm caught in these flames
Your face is to blame
Your actions spoke louder
So what could I say.
I swear I'll show these demons I'm not here to stay
Redefining pride and glory until I get my way.
GOOD GOD.

It is finally here
My summer serenade
I'll count down the days
I'll make my esacape
Cast out with the tide
And lost in the sea.

Tim:
I swear I'll change
I swear I'll change things
I swear I'll change
So sick of feeling angry
I swear I'll change
I swear I'll change things
I swear I'll change
Work so hard to kill these feelings
So that I can finally breath
Rest my head and get some sleep
I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it
I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it I need it
So I can just fucking sleep.

Mike:
Not now, not ever. (x16)

Ben: For now, forever. (x16)
