What Kind of Heart

Your name tattooed in a heart on my sleeve
You were the candle to my flame
The air I breathe
You were everything to me
Shared lives all framed and frozen under glass
These rooms so full of memories
You call the past
They meant so much more to me
Then you packed that carpet bag,
pale blue Moroccan leather
A suitcase and a smile and you were gone … forever

Chorus:
What kind of heart never looks back
What kind of heart moves on long before it’s gone
What kind of heart
What kind of heart feels no regret
What kind of heart finds it easy to forget
What kind of heart?

These days all I hear are songs of love and loss
You were the gamble made for love
My heart the cost
Did I mean nothing to you?
Your words ring false and hollow now I guess
All the sweet talk and promises
All meaningless
Do you ever think of me?
The Summer day we first met,
On the Avenue Bijou?
Cape Jasmine in the breeze or was it always … about you

Chorus:
What kind of heart never looks back
What kind of heart moves on long before it’s gone
What kind of heart
What kind of heart feels no regret
What kind of heart finds it easy to forget
What kind of heart?

Bridge:
There must have been a time between the loving and the leaving
You stopped believing in you and me
There must have been a time you were going through the motions
Drifting along oceans apart
What kind of heart?

Chorus:
What kind of heart never looks back
What kind of heart moves on long before it’s gone
What kind of heart
What kind of heart feels no regret
What kind of heart finds it easy to forget
What kind of heart?

Chorus:
What kind of heart never looks back
What kind of heart moves on long before it’s gone
What kind of heart
What kind of heart feels no regret
What kind of heart finds it easy to forget
What kind of heart?
