Restless Heart
by Natalie Ducey

She cries herself to sleep, through misty eyes she dreams
Another promise of love has caught the midnight train
Bound for a stranger’s touch, a restless heart or two
There will be no conciliation prize; his game of love is void of rules

He is a player and a thief, with no bounty in hand
Broken hearts are no reward for the boy disguised as a man
He rides the rails with an empty soul, like a man on the run
He can’t bear his own reflection, piercing eyes of a motherless son

He has never known love; there are scars that claim this truth
No father to guide him, he survived by his own rules
When living is not dying, it’s absent of simple joys
Who are we to scorn, we anxious mortal fools

He left her alone, escaping the curse of goodbye
He was certain she would leave, just a matter of time
But her eyes can’t escape him, her tiny picture in hand
Is this the love they speak of, when a boy becomes a man

He strums his haggard guitar, every note frees his soul
His voice carries on the wind; travellers welcome this one man show
The dawn now close as a whisper, his fears have parted ways
A one way ticket back to her arms will be the last card he plays
