♪♫The Last Beat Of My Heart Lyrics♫♪

In the sharp gust of love, my memory stirred When time wreathed a rose, a garland of shame Its thorn my only delight, war torn afraid to speak We dare to breathe

Majestic, imperial, a bridge of sighs Solitude sails, in a wave of forgiveness On angels' wings

Reach out your hands, don't turn your back Don't walk away How in the world, can I wish for this? Never to be torn apart

Close to you 'til the last beat, of my heart

At the close of day, the sunset cloaks These words in shadowplay Here and now, long and loud, my heart cries out

And the naked bone of an echo says Don't walk away

Reach out your hands, I'm just a step away How in the world, can I wish for this? Never to be torn apart

Close to you, 'til the last beat, of my heart

How in the world, can I wish for this? Never to be torn apart

'Til the last beat 'Til the last fleeting beat Of my heart
