If Hearts, Minds and People


If hearts really did sink down in holes
Mine would have skydived down to my toes
Tumbling and tumbling till it escapes to my holed shoes

Traveling away from my mind, I wouldn’t mind
So long as some kinds of trouble didn’t rewind

If people really did fall in love
I would break my ribs down that fall from above
For I would leap like it’s the last chance I have
