HEARTS OF STONE

Unofficial studio version


Two, three, four

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

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

If there was something, baby, that I could do
Something that would last, honey, I would
But we all know, girl, especially you do
How you can't return to your past, no
So girl close your eyes and I'll be there
Hold me once more and we can go anywhere
Ah, we could babe

??? I can't talk now, I'm not alone
Just put your ear close to the phone
This is the last dance, the last chance for hearts of stone
Whoa well, Big Man

??? I can't talk now, I'm not alone
So put your ear close to the phone
Baby this is the last chance, the last dance for hearts of stone
Whoa yes it is babe

You stare in your mirror at the lines in your face
And now you try once again to see
The way it was, the way it was when it was you and me
And you cry because things get so strange, so fast
And you cry because times change and you lived in the past
Well I know babe

If there was something I could do
Well baby I promise I would
But this is the last dance, the last chance for hearts of stone
This the last dance, the last chance for hearts of stone
Hmmm


The above lyrics are for an unofficial studio version that can be found on The Definitive Darkness Outtakes Collection, Son You May Kiss The Bride, and The Way bootlegs. The last two verses are different from the offical studio version.
