Lyrics

Don’t Fail Me Now, My Heart

A headful of fancies is fine in itself
Don’t fail me now, my heart
Ruthless reality’s quite something else
Don’t fail me now, my heart
Cos I’m now on the cliff top and not nearly so bold
I’m shaking and hoping that this rope will hold, but...

Chorus:
A faint heart never won fair love
Don’t fail me now, my heart
No, a faint heart never won fair love
Don’t fail me now, my heart
Don’t fail me now, my heart

This could be the crossroads where life takes a turn
Don’t fail me now my heart
Or it could be the point where I crash and I burn
Don’t fail me now my heart
But I don’t want regrets cos I’d stayed on the ground
Thinking why didn’t I fly when the chance came around?
(Repeat chorus)

Well, there’s time still to turn back, but time doesn’t help
Don’t fail me now, my heart
Cos I’d hesitate up here forever, left to myself
Don’t fail me now, my heart
So I’ll block out that hammering there in my chest
And keep telling myself that it’s all for the best, and that...
(Repeat chorus)

Cos I don’t want to leave with just a headful of fancies
Don’t fail me now, my heart
And I don’t want to be just a headful of fancies
Don’t fail me now
