1. She was swinging by the bangles in a main street store,

C

a while before we met,

G D G

the most dangerous angles that you ever saw,

she spied her amulet.

G D G

And she took a loop of leather all around her neck,

C

that was then the start,

G D G

the most dangerous lady on a quarter deck,

- C D - G - C D G

she found a golden hea....rt, found your golden heart.

2. Then we swirled around each other and the thread was spun

C

to some arcadian band,

G D G

I would stop it from swinging like a pendulum,

C D

hold time in my hand.

G D G

And you shot me with a cannonball of history,

C

a long forgotten art,

G D G

Id be turning it over as the words run free,

- C D - G - C D G

Id hold your golden hea.....rt, hold your golden heart.

Nothing in the world prepared me for your heart, your heart,

and all the time I sleep,

I will have a reminder that my baby wore,

a part of you to keep.

And Ill send you all my promises across the sea,

and while we are apart,

I will carry the wonder that you gave to me,
