Amy England Summertown: Listen

Heart Like Mine

(Amy England)
I wrote this about an island in Maine where I used to live. Much like Nantucket it was very close-knit & everyone knows what's going on next door.
Saturday you walked by, all decked out in your blue jean button fly.
You ain't hard to look at, my friends they want to talk me out of that,
But I ain't got the time to talk, I've got to catch my heart.

Chorus:
How can I deny, that crooked smile, those black eyes?
How can I get by?
Oh heart come back, what a waste of time,
There ain't no use talking to a heart like mine.

Sun is coming down. I'm at the crossroad on the edge of town.
You'll be coming soon, 'round the bend & with the moon,
Bringing me stars and luck and dust & wanderlust.

How can I deny, that crooked smile, those black eyes?
How can I get by?
Oh heart come back, what a waste of time,
There ain't no use talking to a heart like mine.

Sunday down in town, everyone's talking and throwing your name around.
Mamma wants to know all the facts, why you run off with a boy like that.
But I ain't got the time to talk, I've got to catch my heart.

How can I deny, that crooked smile, those black eyes?
How can I get by?
Oh heart come back, what a waste of time,
There ain't no use talking to a heart like mine.
No, there ain't no use talking to a heart like mine.
