Heart Skip Too Many Beats

Janis Ian/Dan Hartmann

When a heart skip too many beats
When a heart skip too many beats
When a heart skip too many beats
I can't sleep, I can't sleep

You say you love me and the truth takes time
Think I need some time away
What kind of truth comes out of lies?
What kind of love comes out of pain?
And now my heart's too hot
I can't start, can't stop
I got no spark, no shot
I can't breath, I can't breath

When a heart skip too many beats
When a heart skip too many beats
When a heart skip too many beats
I can't sleep, I can't sleep

Never knowing
How you're feeling
How much loving
How much wheeler-dealing

You say you want to be a friend of mine
I think I have too many friends
You say you want to make it last this time
You know on whom it all depends
And now my heart's too hot
I can't start, I can't stop

Need to know just where you're living
What you're taking, how much you'll be giving
I think I need a doctor, 'cause my heart keeps
Skipping a beat

Truth and passion melt with time
Faith and reason on the firing line
No more treason, no more lies
Help me trust you
Let me love you tonight

When a heart skip too many beats
When a heart skip too many beats
When a heart skip too many beats
I can't sleep, I can't sleep
