Every Beat Of My Heart

Every beat of my heart,

Every pulse of my thumb,

Every flick of an eyelash,

Every call to my Mum.

You were the talk of the town.

Every breath I breathed at all,

Every poster I stuck on the wall,

Every new shoe I bought,

And every letter I brought.

You were the talk of the town.

Every tick of my clock,

Every hole in my sock,

Every minute of every day,

There was only one thing I could say,

You were the talk of the town.

Every time I took a sip,

Even on holiday, every time I took a dip,

Every dollar that I spent,

Every time I came and went.

You were the talk of the town.

Every wave of my left hand,

Every thing I didn’t understand,

Every passage of every book,

Every taste of tea I took.

You were the talk of the town.

And through all this,

I seem to recall,

That on every beat, you were centre of it all.
