James Blunt - Heartbeat Lyrics




Let it slide
All the choices I made
Let it burn
As it rolls down my face
Let it fall
Just to be the one again
But if I want
I won't be loved by you at all
Let it slip
Every promise I break
Let it burn
All the blows that we trade
Let it fall
'Cause this place has been condemned
And we both know
That we can't be here anymore

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard
Should've run, run a hundred miles, never look back Jack
'Cause now we can't backtrack
And yeah, I know what you'll say
Nothing can change, no one to blame
It's on the tip of my tongue, here it comes, this is crazy
You should know that I would go back in a heartbeat
Just to make your heart beat

Let it fail
It's too late to be saved
Let it roll
The rock across this grave
Let it blaze
There's a darkness in the flame
And it's lost
And we can't bare it anymore
Let it slide
I can't start it again
Let it burn
While it's held in my hand
Let it fall
'Cause this journey's at its end
It's only luck
That I was loved by you at all

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard
Should've run, run a hundred miles, never look back Jack
'Cause now we can't backtrack
And yeah, I know what you'll say
Nothing can change, no one to blame
It's on the tip of my tongue, here it comes, this is crazy
You should know that I would go back in a heartbeat
Just to make your heart beat

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard
Should've run, run a hundred miles, never look back Jack
'Cause now we can't backtrack
And yeah, I know what you'll say
Nothing can change, no one to blame
It's on the tip of my tongue, here it comes, this is crazy
You should know that I would go back in a heartbeat
Just to make your heart beat

  25. Alys 3344

    hey my name is Alyssa Dimech i 'm 13 years old and i love James so much. i am a huge fan. i have been listening to him since i was born. my mom loved him to she got to meet him once and then sadly a year after she passed away. we had goodbye my lover played at her funeral. i was only 8 when she passed away. the first year i didn't know what to do with my self. i missed her so much i just wanted to be with her. the only time that i felt like i was with her was when i would listen to James. it was the best feeling in the world. a couple years ago i got to meet you at an Ed Sheeran concert in Toronto. that was the best night of my life i still can't believe that i got to him. when i meet him i told him about my mom i was trying not to cry. when we finished talking and taking pictures. i walked away and started crying. i was so happy. i tried writing him letters but i don't have the courage to send them. but ya i guess i just hope he sees this. SO ANYONE WHO READS THIS PLS LIKE AND COMMENT. I REALLY WOULD LIKE HIM TO SEE THIS. i love you James. PS thank you James for changing and saving my life.

    Jody Knight

    Omg you dear sweet girl, I cried my eyes out reading your comment and I hope you are well and happy where ever you are in the world. It must have been so cool to meet James when he means so much to you. I think he's an amazing singer/songwriter that is able to infuse his music with so much emotion. What do you think of his new song "Cold"? I love the live version from the pool the ending is fantastic as he harmonises with the other singers. Good luck Alyssa I hope life is kind to you forever more.

    Malea Rodziczak

    Alyssa I hope James reads your post. I so sorry you lost your mom at such an early time in your life. I agree with you about Jame's music. I love it too. I'm so happy it brought you comfort when you needed it so bad. I too like your mom listen to his music everyday. Now I will think of you when i listen. Your story has touched my heart. God bless you.

  44. Milowfan321

    äme in 150 years - when you (but only the g'd ones!) are all free and me sitting in whole - or even killed by Clint Eastwood driven by GWB - I saw myself jumping in front of my child - it saved her life, but he shot me between my eyes :(

  45. Lachie Dazdarian

    pal m

    Down on a thin ice
    In to hot ashes landing on white hard floor with a face full of wind
    People should just jog more instead of running
    But I guess it is not always that easy especially with diamond heart lighten up from titanium fumes :-)

  63. Roger Mymm

    James Blunt is the GOAT in terms of song writing and singing. Love you.

  64. Keenan Pitzini

    i have loved all the singers like James Blunt since for ever. And he delivers more than tears in our eyes. More than words that can't be explained. More than any strong feeling anyone has ever felt before. He gives chances in our lives (mainly in this song), to maybe go back and change what we thought was over. When actually if we give a chance to the one we love for ever, we could end being with the ultimate person u felt you were destined to be with this hole time.

    P.S. : i said all this, cause i really felt all those emotions and all those beautiful happy and sad thoughts in my heart beat.

  65. carmen vargas

    If you want to sing along in time, but don't know the words:
    Let it slide
    All the choices I made
    Let it burn
    As it rolls down my face
    Let it fall
    Just to be the one again
    But if I want
    I won't be loved by you at all
    Let it slip
    Every promise I break
    Let it burn
    All the blows that we trade
    Let it fall
