HEARTS OF STONE

Live 19 May 1978 version


You stare in the mirror at the lines in your face
And you try so hard to see
The way things were when we were at your place
Everyday was just you and me
And you cry because things ain't like before
Well don't you know it can't be that way anymore
But don't worry baby

'Cause I can't talk now, I'm not alone
So put your ear close to the phone
'Cause this is the last dance, the last chance for hearts of stone

If there was something, baby, that I could do
Something that would last, honey, I would
But you should know better than to think that you can return to the past
So close your eyes and I'll be there
Hold you once more and not go anywhere
I wish I could babe

But I can't talk now, I'm not alone
So put your ear close to the phone
'Cause this is the last dance, the last chance for hearts of stone

And you cry because things get so strange, so fast
And you cry because nothing good ever lasts
Well I know babe

But I can't talk now, I'm not alone
So put your ear close to the phone
'Cause this is the last dance, the last chance for hearts of stone

I can't talk now, I'm not alone
So put your ear close to the phone
'Cause this is the last dance, the last chance for hearts of stone


The above lyrics are for the live 19 May 1978 performance of HEARTS OF STONE with Southside Johnny at Paramount Theatre, Asbury Park, NJ, during the Darkness On The Edge Of Town tour rehearsals.
