Little Dark Heart
(Michael Timmins)

It’s a funny start,
but I have no home,
I have no name,
I have no one.
Except this little dark heart,
fate playing her part,
I have no one.

And I’m not one to say,
but she has a way
of winding that thread.
She has a way.
Now there’s this little dark heart,
fate playing her part,
she has her ways.

One is left in a ditch by the highway
the other ‘neath the Tax Bureau Gate.
Wherever you come from that’s where you go.
They lie gazing at the stars and they wait.
They lie gazing at the stars and they wait.

I’ve read all the books
and they go away.
They turn their backs.
They go away.

The long journey starts
for that little dark heart.
She has no one.
I make a fresh start
you fall apart
and they go away.
