Track Name: Heart On the Wall
Heart On the Wall

There’s a well-lit heart on the wall the color of knowledge;
an old dark sign with a story to tell.
This road’s too deep for walking; the sky gets darker still.
The sign on the street gets harder to read,
those shoes get harder to fill.

A stout horse pulls the surf boat to the sea;
my father passed all his worries on to me.

Heart on the wall, please, please help me.
Don’t leave me hang like some - art down the hall
that no one will ever see.

A stout horse pulls the surfboat to the sea;
my father passed all his worries on to me.

INSTR ( verse + chorus )

There’s a well on the hill from which any fool can drink
but there are thoughts that haunt me,
no matter what I think.

When it became apparent,
(and) that he had a son called mirror
Once he revealed himself transparent;
now everything is clearer...

A stout horse pulls the surfboat to the sea;
my father passed all his courage on to me.

Heart on the wall, please, please help me.
Don’t leave me hang like some - art down the hall
that no one will ever see.

A stout horse pulls the surfboat to the sea;
my father passed all his worries on to me.
