Heartbeat Away

(Tom Kozlowski)
I won’t go away I will cling to your heart

I am closer than breath like your thoughts of death

Very few know when I am here most turn and run when I appear

Children know me by name open hearts know the same

Listen at the close of the day

I am a heartbeat away


I live in your room I don’t take any space

We share the time like the lines on your face

Some let me in when I’m at the door others pretend I don’t live here no more

Someday I know we will meet in the looking glass or we’ll pass on the street

No place to hide at the end of the day

I am a heartbeat away
