Heavy Hearts

He looked ahead towards fading lights
A young man’s hope shot down like moving targets
As he runs off far from home in the darkness all alone
She looks behind to see fading years
Distant dreams are crawling to catch up with her
Held back by oncoming tears as the darkness draws near

But he persists
And she resists
So hard to enlist
A heavy heart
She tries to smile
He walks with style
But all the while
A heavy heart

Some walk alone without a single touch
No soft caress no sweet voice whispering life it can
Make loneliness too much

We might persist
We may resist
So hard to predict
A heavy heart
So try to smile
And walk with style
Even if all the while
You got a heavy heart

A heart must soar
