This heart it waits like a lion in the grass
Just outside an ancient little town
Near an ancient little thatch roofed hut
The colour of your hair
It licks its little lips and pauses like the air

I’ve counted seven diamonds on your raincoat
And listened for a message in your sighs
As every little winsome twit’ling bird throat
Is wracked upon the hunger in my eyes
I’m not so bloody awesome at goodbyes

This heart is waits in the bare savannah dried of rain
Hearing thunder rolling cross the plain
I’d take just one pink keepsake
That I’d set against the sky
I’d squeeze out all the peppermint and put it in a pie

I’ve counted seven hours til your sailboat
You’re beautiful you re lethal and you re wise
As every little longing word that I wrote
Is hanging from the garden of your eyes
I m not so bloody awesome at goodbyes

So I’ll put a little powder on my old heart
And count the dancing minutes
While it lies like a lion on the still edge of your body
It s got these teeth you see and that is why
I’m not so bloody awesome at goodbye
