My phantom heart wants you to know

That it stopped beating years ago

No pulsating rhythm

No vibrating anthem

Its chambers now echo

With sighs and cries

And howls and screams

What beat does the heart keep

When the cymbals crash

It throbs instead

It quivers instead

My phantom heart wants you to know

That it lost its rhythm years ago
