The Last Beat Of My Heart

The Last Beat Of My Heart

Siouxsie and the Banshees

In the sharp gust of love my memory stirred
When time wreathed a rose a garland of shame
It's thorn my only delight war torn
Afraid to speak, we dare to breathe

Majestic, imperial a bridge of sighs
Solitude sails in a wave of forgiveness
On angels wings

Reach out your hands, don't turn your back
Don't walk away
How in the world, can I wish for this?
Never to be torn apart
Close to you 'till the last beat of my heart

At the close of day the sunset cloaks
These words in shadow play
Here and now, long and loud
My heart cries out
And the naked bone of an echo says
Don't walk away

Reach out your hands I'm just a step away
How in the world can I wish for this?
Never to be torn apart
Close to you till the last beat of my heart

How in the world can I wish for this?
Never to be torn apart till the last beat
Till the last fleeting beat of my heart
