Heart Of Stone (Great Big Sea)

If the last thing I see is your face,
The last thing I feel is your warm embrace,
I would not be afraid;
I would go to a happy grave,
If the last thing I see is you.

Should I suddenly disappear,
Or linger on for a hundred years,
I would know no fear;
I would taste no bitter tears,
If the last thing I see is you.

Old heart of stone, help me forget it.
Old heart of stone, you think she meant it?
Old heart of stone, somehow I've always known,
That I'd regret it.

If I could have one wish,
It would be that you remember this,
Know that I did not stray;
For you were there to guide my way,
You and your beautiful face.

Old heart of stone, help me forget it.
Old heart of stone, you think she meant it?
Old heart of stone, somehow I've always known,
That I'd regret it.

If I should fall, would you give chase,
Would you follow me?
Or find someone to fill my space,
And keep you company?

If the sun refused to shine,
And it called for rain till the end of time,
Still I would not lose faith;
I'd sail my soul to a warmer place,
For you and your beautiful face.

Old heart of stone, help me forget it.
Old heart of stone, you think she meant it?
Old heart of stone, somehow I've always known,
That I'd regret it.

Old heart of stone, old heart of stone,
Old heart of stone, old heart of stone,
[Fade To End]
Old heart of stone, old heart of stone....

Recorded by Great Big Sea of St John's, NL (Fortune's Favour, trk#13, 2008, Warner Music Canada, Scarborough, Ontario).

Liner Notes: Another Séan song born of despair and regret. It is actually the marriage of two entirely different pieces. Kalem had submitted a tune called Heart Of Stone and when Jeen heard the chorus she realized it would work better here. She was right. And then Bob played the pipes.....
