The Heart Juggler

from Death By Sunset by Dave McPherson



This is one of my favourite songs on 'Death By Sunset'. It is about a girl juggling between two men & one of the men eventually walking away. A lot of people like this song, possibly because of the subject matter! Most of us have been there!


It can’t be saved, this love is beyond repair my dear but at least I’m twice the man that I once was.
All things end & now I will only call you ‘friend’.
My heart will not allow the words up through my throat.

‘Cause you walked away, my best wasn’t good enough for you.
I pulled most of the shrapnel from my heart but I left a piece to remind me that…

She is the heart juggler but I don’t wear clown makeup or big shoes.
Fire me from the cannon far away from her tightrope.
She promised to never close the door on us but she opens & she slams it as she pleases.
Juggling hearts is a messy business mistress…

A trojan horse couldn’t breach the perimeter, do you think people deserve a second chance?
I’ve set a new course, these arms will hold somebody new, it’s a grand ocean that only invites bold sailors.

’Cause you sailed away, you went to Antarctica via the Bermuda Triangle,
He followed you into the abyss for the sake of an icy kiss like a dog with his tongue hanging out…

It’s cruel to say you love me, my heart is all or nothing.
Put your head upon my chest, The beating has no soul left.
There is so much truth in the space between our words.
It clings to bubbles & rises to the surface,
On an island there’s a circus where she resides…

1 the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

Music is my life. An oft-used cliché yet nonetheless true for me. I've devoted most of my existence to exploring it in every way & in turn it has enabled me to travel the world & meet new friends all over.

Hope you like my sounds!
