Graham Parker The Beating of Another Heart Lyrics

Last updated:

Intro G Em Bm G C D

G D
She comes from the hardest town
Em Bm C
they build you up to let you down and
D Em G Bm D
leave you with an armour hard as steel

G D
It's not the chaos or the heat
Em Bm C
or the noises from the street but
D
something inside she has to beat that

Em Bm Em Bm
shoots out a nerve causes judgements to swerve
C G D
and makes her feel that something must be wrong

Em Bm
She'll attempt to resist
C G D
and pretend it don't exist when it does

C D
But if ever her defence drop
C D
love takes a shot pop
C D
Baby you can't stop

G
the beating of another heart
Em C
the beating of another heart yeah
D Em D G
sometimes she needs the beating of another heart

Em Bm G C D
(just chords)

G D
All the steps we seem to take
Em Bm C D
are sometimes stairways to escape from
Em G Bm D
all the things that were supposed to come

G D
And there's a threat when letting go
Em Bm C
Showing things she'll never show but
D
I won't give in now I know

Em Bm Em Bm
as I ask friend how on earth can I send
C G D
a little bit of me to her

Em Bm
She'll attempt to resist
C G D
and pretend I don't exist when I do

C D
But if ever her defence drop
C D
love takes a shot pop
C D
Baby you can't stop

G
the beating of another heart
Em C
the beating of another heart yeah
D Em D Em D
sometimes she needs the beating of another heart

C# D A
The pounding goes on forever
C# D A
at night when we are here together
C# D A D
They say that people get too clever for love

Em C
but I know

Solo

C D
But if ever her defence drop
C D
love takes a shot pop
C D
Baby you can't stop

G
the beating of another heart
Em C
the beating of another heart yeah
D Em D G
sometimes she needs the beating of another heart
D G D C
she needs the beating of another heart
D G D Em Bm G C D
she needs the beating of another h-e-a-r-t

fade on Em G
