Track Name: The Violence of Your Heart
The Violence of Your Heart
© January, 2011 David Nyro
Verse 1: Stop! Think what you
re doing Wait! Take a moment to reflect
Stop! we're on the road to ruin
In your eyes I see storm clouds brewin
I know I should be runnin away - yet still I stay,
Still I stay.
Verse 2: Words can be an awful weapon
In the hands of a practiced pro
Cuts that slice, slice me open Seems I spend my days and nights in a state of confusion
I don't want to believe that my baby is bad but he is . . .
but he is O o o o o o o o
Chorus: The Violence of your heart
The Violence of your heart, has left me shaken
The Violence of your heart took me by surprise
The Violence of your heart has brought me low. . .
Useless tears fill my eyes
Verse 3: Stop! Think what you're doing. Wait!
It doesn't have to end this way.
Please - If there's any love left for usIs there anything that I can say . . .to turn the tide?
I know we're past the point of no return
When will I learn? When will I learn?
Chorus: O o o o o o o The Violence of your heart took a painful toll
The Violence of your heart has left me broken
The Silence of your heart has crushed my soul.
Useless tears fill my eyes Useless tears cloud my eyes.
Bridge:
I always tried - tried to see your soft side, baby. The one you tried - Tried so hard to hide
Cause I know, you too have cried.
Cause I know, you too have cried
Chorus: The Violence of your heart has left its mark
The Violence of your heart has been such a blow
The Silence of your heart, left me in the dark
The Violence of your heart, the Violence of your heart, the Violence of your heart - has brought me low.
Useless tears fill my eyes
Useless years, rolling by Useless tears cloud my eyes Useless tears cloud my e yes
