50 Nights (Relentless Heart) *2009 Bedroom Track*

from 13 North & South EP by Pelican Johnny



I grab my bike and I head out into the fog
My conscience would kill me if I stayed
Alone, so I called - do you still care at all?
I’m reaching out for help on my birthday

“Don’t try and fight” is what they tell me
But I can’t keep it all inside
Lay down to rest this memory today
I’m hoping that this soul will survive

I’ve spent been fifty nights crying
That pretty ghost won’t let me get no sleep
A relentless heart will never stop from trying
To get back what was taken from me
To get back my sanity

In the cool autumn air when I combed up my hair
And I was looking like the day when we first met
I plead and I beg to take me back again
A night ensued I won’t soon forget

On that very last night when you held me
And I fell asleep squeezing you tight
Please don’t tell me that this is the end
Let me down easy if you can

I’ve got a missed connection with myself
Chances blown and a controversy made
I can’t seem to help myself
Gone too far and now it’s too late
Please don’t let today be too late

Seven months and a million letters later
I’m looking back to see how far I’ve come
Driving five states now to make myself feel better
I’ve sought and found a little bit of fun

But don’t get me wrong, something’s missing
Like a child who’s been taken from his home
An endless soundtrack that keeps me coming back
To the one I love: this heart will never roam
