The beating of my heart is a drumand it's lost and it's looking for a rhythm like you
You can take the darkness from the pit of the night and turn into a beacon burning endlessly bright
I've got to follow it
'cause ev'rything I know
Well it's nothing till I give it to you
I can make the run or stumble
I can make the final block
And I can make every tackle
at the sound of the whistle
I can make all the stadiums rock
have you ever in your life seen lyrics better than these? no way. he can make every tackle at the sound of the whistle! who doesn't want a lover like that? the beating of his heart is a drum and it's lost and it's looking for a rhythm like you! so smooth! swoon.
the last verse is a little guilt-trippy so we'll just skip over that for now. learn this song. and then belt it out. your life will never be the same.
