Original demo sent to Dean Wareham for consideration. He recorded his wonderful version on "Dean Wareham".


The air you breathe
land and seas
ruled by heartless people
wars are fought
lovers caught
all by heartless people

but you
you and I
hate to see a flower die
somebody tell me
which way the power lies

I looked at you
and knew you were for me
among them heartless people
and when we met
the hard times just left
along with heartless people

but you
you and I
hate to hear a baby cry
somebody tell me
which way the power lies

No one ever really knew
the trouble in my heart
she had a way with me
right from the very start
before I take my last breath
before they call me home
you can hope for the best
of what is written in stone

I'd stay with you
but I know we could be through
we're both just heartless people
with our needs
and plans to succeed
both just heartless people

But you
You and I
love to take in an evening sky
somebody tell me
which way the power lies

Did you see the way
she looked at me?
It caught me by surprise
She had a look
that could cut you down to size
but I loved her them
and even more
I love her to this day
only my heart will be left of me
as her memory fades away

But until that day
we could sail away
far from heartless people
far from heartless people
