Heart Is Healing

from Love Keeps Kicking by Martha



The phone was ringing for an hour or so,
When I heard your voice, in Tokyo, say,
“Promise you won’t do this anymore”,
You’ve always given sound advice,
And tried not to catastrophise,
Honestly I couldn’t face the thought,

Of that familiar feeling,
When your heart is healing, Theodore,
I just keep on running from it all,

I think I’ll work from home today,
Feel like quitting anyway,
Give me nothing ventured, nothing gained,
This year blew my world apart,
Admin with a broken heart,
Last orders at a Kōenji station bar,

It takes a lifetime to begin to forget,
I don’t think I’m ready, I don’t think I’m ready,
So painful to be back at the start,
The stillness of a lonely healing heart.
