Love this track, it has a sort of innocent 70's feel to it. May be up there with my favourites on this album.

I can picture a couple walking through the streets of Paris as he sings this, or a cute historical French village Don't know why?

I don't get the lyrics, but I like the music

I interpret the lyrics as someone saying they know that they destroyed the relationship and really hurt the other person. However, when that person let their guard down they wanted to take advantage of that guard being down and get them back....but is warning them to run from the relationship. Saying in a variety of ways to let the relationship go, yet wishing they could go back to the moments before they destroyed the relationship.

Anyone else have a take on it?

"Heartbeat"

Let it slide, all the choices I made.
Let it burn, as it rolls down my face.
Let it fall, just to be the one again.
But if I want, I won't be loved by you at all.

Let it slip, every promise I break.
Let it burn, all that blows that we trade.
Let it fall, 'cause this place has been condemned.
And we both know that we can't be here anymore.

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart,
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard,
Should have run, run a hundred miles,
Never look back, Jack, 'cause now we can't backtrack.
And yeah, I know what you'll say,
Nothing can change, no one to blame,
It's on the tip of my tongue, here it comes,
this is crazy you should know that,
I would go back in a heartbeat,
Just to make your heart beat.

Let it fail, it's too late to be saved.
Let it roll, the rock across this grave.
Let it blaze, there's a darkness in the flame,
And it's lost and we can't bear it anymore.

Let it slide, I can't start it again.
Let it burn, while it's held in my hand.
Let it fall, 'cause this journey is at its end.
It's only luck that I was loved by you at all.

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart,
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard,
Should have run, run a hundred miles,
Never look back, Jack, 'cause now we can't backtrack.
And yeah, I know what you'll say,
Nothing can change, no one to blame,
It's on the tip of my tongue, here it comes,
this is crazy you should know that,
I would go back in a heartbeat,
Just to make your heart beat.

Yeah, I know I pulled a pin on your heart,
But I lost sight of the target when you let down your guard,
Should have run, run a hundred miles,
Never look back, Jack, 'cause now we can't backtrack.
And yeah, I know what you'll say,
Nothing can change, no one to blame,
It's on the tip of my tongue, here it comes,
this is crazy you should know that,
I would go back in a heartbeat,
Just to make your heart beat.


Written by James Blunt, Steve Robson and Dewain Whitmore






For me, it's about grieving a failed relationship. Looking back at how they've hurt each other, recognizing that the relationship was doomed. He admits he hurt her, and they can't go back to what they once were. He regrets the relationship, and think it's crazy that he is still drawn to her. But in finality, he knows the journey is at its end.


I lurve this song. This is the song that makes this album complete and satisfying for me. While the other songs are great (awesome even), they are a new sound. To me, this is quintessential Blunt, slightly evolved, can't get this fix anywhere else. Thank you James, for putting this track on the album.

Favourite line: Let it roll, the rock across this grave.

This song feels like it has a dark thread running through it. Strangely I get inages of the wild west going through my mind listening to it
