The Farallons: Here, the music

In A Heartbeat

(The Farallons)
Words & Music by Tom Richardson

If I were the King of the Oceans

And you were sailing on a stormy sea

Would I command the waves and the winds to behave,

And move you with a warm gentle breeze?

 

In a heartbeat, in a heartbeat.

 

If you were a damsel in your castle

Fending off a million enemies

Would I grab my sword and armor to defend your honor?

Would I join you to bring them to their knees?

 

In a heartbeat, in a heartbeat.

 

Circumstances will reveal what a heart can take,

It can be strong and true, but we know that they break.

My only guarantee is I will do my best,

To see that my heart is equal to the test.

 

Well, I am just a simple, peaceful man,

Trying to be the best that I can be.

I’m no hero but I promise you that I will do what I must do,

To keep my people safe and free.

 

In a heartbeat, in a heartbeat.

If I were the King of the Oceans

And you were sailing on a stormy sea

Would I command the waves and the winds to behave,

And move you with a warm gentle breeze?

 

In a heartbeat.

 

If you were a damsel in your castle

Fending off a million enemies

Would I grab my sword and armor to defend your honor?

Would I join you to bring them to their knees?

 

In a heartbeat.

 

Circumstances will reveal what a heart can take,

It can be strong and true, but we know that they break.

My only guarantee is I will do my best,

To see that my heart is equal to the test.

 

Well, I am just a simple, peaceful man,

Trying to be the best that I can be.

I’m no hero but I promise you that I will do what I must do,

To keep my people safe and free.

 

In a heartbeat.
