New song – In A Heartbeat

Make sure you grab your free download from my website.

True story:

I wrote this song after a drive through Northern France, past the former battlefields of The Somme.

We passed an elderly man leaning on a farm gate. He was dressed in old-fashioned clothes from another era.

The whole scene was slightly unsettling and incongruous; He looked out of place, out of context. A weird juxtaposition!  It was rarer eerie. It stimulated my imagination: Perhaps this was a soldier who never returned home?

The story is of a man lost on in battle. Not realising he had died, he can’t understand why he has been left behind amongst the fallen.

He tries in vain to somehow return home.

LYRICS © Andy Mitchell 2013

I sleep alone in the garden of eden
the seeds are sown in this withering field
my breath is blown on a wind of unreason
I lost may way back home

I’m calling out in the valley of silence
a quiet voice in the whispering blades
of the green green grass that were kissed by the rain
I’m screaming out your name

In a heartbeat
I lost my way back home
in a heartbeat
And here we were waiting for time…
to turn us back around again

I walk alone in the shadow of sunrise
their hearts are stone
they don’t feel what i feel
This frozen field sings a song to the morning
I lost my way back home

In a heartbeat
I lost my way back home
in a heartbeat
And here we were waiting for time…
to turn us back around again

we hope these things have passed
yeah we walk the other way
But all these memories remain
In a place that we call home

… in your heartbeat

V

I come back here to the solace of summer
the trees are grown in this flourishing field
my words are woven with a rhyme and a reason
finding my way back home
Finding my way back home
cos I lost my way back home
I lost my way back home
