Can't You Hear The Beating Of My Heart?

guitar tabI'm staggering along the avenue
Doing all the things I like to do
Dodging cars and spitting in the wind
Impatient for the nighttime to begin

And then I think of you

Chorus
Can't you hear the beating of my heart?
Can't you hear the beating of my heart?
Can't you hear the beating of my heart?
Beats for you

Since you left, I haven't wasted time
I've got so many lovers, it's a crime
There's a steady stream outside my living room
There taking numbers in the living room

But none of them is you

Chorus

From where I stand out here on the brink
Is it useless to think
You'd come back to me

Chorus

Now the only thing that I can do
Is free myself from memories of you
Shut out all external stimuli
'Cause everything around here makes me cry

I'll find somewhere to hide myself away
Before you know it, I'll be old and gray
I'll sit there in the dark, stare straight ahead
And people will assume that I am dead

And I'll blame it all on you

Chorus
