  1. Racing Heart

From the recording On My Way

My first complete song. When I hear the song and read the words today, it makes me realize how much I've changed, and how little.

Lyrics

Welcome, son, now the best of luck
fighting a war that I fight too
If you enjoy the sights too much
they'll get the best of you

It happens so fast
Another impossible battle all over again
My heart's taken over my mind for so long
When will it end?

I promised myself never again
to let my racing heart steer me wrong
when she walks, that pretty stranger
my heart knows all along

Although my mind may disagree
My forgetful heart'll begin to race
I tell myself this just can't be,
But, man, didn't you see that look on her face?
(Something they never teach you)

Never let your racing heart c-catch up and pass your mind
That's a lesson that I never learn
You tell yourself you've got the will, but then your racing heart
speeds up and takes another wrong turn

Well last night the stranger walked up to me
and when she looked in my eyes, well I knew she could tell
the state I was in 'cause she invited me in
to her casual lies, I said, Well...

Sure! She said well then listen to me
and never mind your mind, you think too much
Bodies were fusing, thoughts confusing my mind...
Imaging her touch...

Never let your racing heart c-catch up and pass your mind
That's a lesson that I never learn
You tell yourself you've got the will, but then your racing heart
speeds up and takes another wrong turn

Never let your racing heart c-catch up and pass your mind
That's a lesson that I never learn
Welcome, son, now that best of luck
fighting the war that I fight too
Enjoy the sights 'cause they are gonna burn
right through you
