lyrics

ONE HEARTBEAT AT A TIME
(Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music/BMI)

Everybody says the way to heal a broken heart
Is just to take things one day at a time
But when each day's an eternity, a long unbroken line
I get a little lost inside my mind

Well-intentioned friends, they want to offer me advice
They're just tryin' to help me get along
But none of them can tell me how to speed the hands of time
And without you, these days are too damned long

The leaves have started turning and the frost is on the breeze
And I don't want to think about you if you do not think of me
So I will go through this my own way
And take this thing one heartbeat at a time

And I can only wonder where you might be tonight
Who you're with and how you spend your time
Does any word I ever said remain with you inside
To toss and turn away a sleepless night?

So I will go into the darkness if your heart is through with me
And I know that winter's comin' and your warmth is gone from me
So I will go through this my own way
And take this thing one heartbeat at a time
One heartbeat at a time
One heartbeat at a time
