Song Description

The lively and catchy melody provides a backdrop for the words, which are humorous and ironic describing the irrational behaviour of a pleading, drunken and jilted lover. The instrumental is bar room, with a gospel organ, and beach boy style backing vocals to add humour. Bleeding Heart Yard is a small tradesman's yard in central London.


Sweetheart, I'm on my way again
Don't know how it's gonna end
I'm so tired and I feel like I want to hired
This foolish heart I cannot lose
I was born for smoke and tears and booze
I go anywhere as long as the road is wide

I look to the earth but the soil is all broken
I listen for signs but the words are all spoken
Laying at the bottom of a bar things don't seem so hard
You turn off your phone if you know I'll be listening
I howl at you stay but you leave me here singing
these face down cobble kissing blues on bleeding heart yard

One day I hope you're gonna find
The complicated perfections that your mind
has manufactured in the bleak and empty night
I know his face won't look like mine
I know his laugh won't sound like mine
I wish you well and I hope it's gonna turn out right


Farewell I'll sever every tie
I'll be my own man 'til I die
and I don't feel so I don't care what the hell you do
But if you ever change your mind
Don't let a single second wind
Give me the sign and I'll sober up and come back to you.
