My Last Heartbeat

(Rick Springfield/Matt Bissonette)

Heal my broken soul

There’s a hole in my soul where the love leaks out
A shadow in my heart that’s filled with doubt
A devil on my back I can hear him shout
“Let Me In, Let Me In”

I went looking for your city of Kingdom Come
On the way I hit a road side bomb
It’s always darkest before the dawn
Lift me up, Lift me up

Heal my broken soul
Take Me…

I’m down to my last heartbeat
Last ounce of wasted pride
You know I’d walk on water
To bridge this Great Divide
My last heartbeat
Waits for the wrecking crew
The Calvary’s not coming
There is no one but you

Heal my broken soul

I watch your eyes light up like lightning strikes
You shield your heart with railroad spikes
Battle scarred from the firefights
Shelter me, shelter me

I live lost in the city of eternal lights
On the 100th floor with a fear of heights
Only with your touch the fire ignites
Light me up, Light me up

Heal my broken soul
Take Me…

I’m down to my last heartbeat
Last ounce of wasted pride
You know I’d walk on water
To bridge this Great Divide
My last heartbeat waits for the wrecking crew
The calvary’s not coming, there is no one but you
Take Me…

I’m down to my last heartbeat
All bridges have been burned
I can’t give back what you gave me
Cause love can’t be returned
My last heartbeat, still thinks that dreams come true
There is no one can heal me, there is no one but you

My last heartbeat
Last ounce of wasted pride
You know I’d walk on water
To bridge this Great Divide
My last heartbeat waits for the wrecking crew
The calvary’s not coming, there is no one but you

Heal my broken soul
Heal my broken soul

 

 

According to US

I just read the words for this, with no music, and it really is quite the poetic song. I listened to the regular version and the acoustic version and I'm not in love with the music on this one, and don't love the screaming parts.

There are so many good lines, that if I started listing them, I'd just be posting the whole song.

I did notice that "wrecking crew" and "let me in" make a repeat appearance. I don't feel like this song has a deep emotional connection, but more just a well written song with some really good lines about a recurring theme. - rlh
