Please, Don't Hide Your Heart Away. Hide Your Heart Away

This song is my sorta sappy, kinda broken-hearted, maybe cry-in-your-beer kinda/sorta, old-fashioned country waltz number. Jeez.

So, yeah, I suppose if you're ever jonesin' to embrace, validate and emancipate your own inner-George-Jones, you can get nasal and get down on this simple itty-bitty C&W ditty.

Although I can't say with absolute certainty now, I believe that Martha might've provided a majority of the muse behind the creation of this particular song. If so, and if then included for consideration alongside Martha's Cartharsis Waltz, it would seem that for some cosmic reason heretofore unimagined Miss Martha tended to bring out the three-quarter rhythm in me. How 'bout them apples?

Thin Line


Hide Your Heart Away
Words and Music by David R. Lister

So your Don Juan has come and gone
Now it's so hard to keep on keepin' on
Well, it's true time heals
But the healin' takes real long
When you try to deny what you feel

Dreams turned to dust, and so did trust
He called it love, but it was just lust
When you got burned
You learned you must
Hide your heart away

So you hide your heart away, and pray
True love will find you for good, someday
When you got burned
You learned it pays
To hide your heart away

Please don't hide your heart away


HIDE YOUR HEART AWAY.MP3
