The Fray – Heartbeat lyrics

[Verse 1]
We're on an open bed truck on the highway
Rain is coming down and we're on the run.
Think I can feel the breath in your body.
We gotta keep on running til' we see the sun.

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh you gotta fire and it's burnin' in the rain.
Thought that it went out, but it's burnin' just the same.
And you don't look back, not for anything.
'Cause love someone, love them all the same.
If you love someone, love them all the same.

[Chorus]
Oh I feel your heartbeat.
And oh, you're comin' around, comin' around, comin' around
If you can love somebody, love them all the same.
You gotta love somebody, love them all the same.
I'm Singing, Oh, I'm Feeling Your Heartbeat.

[Verse 2]
I'm tryin' to put it all back together.
I've got a story and I'm tryin' to tell it right.
I've got the kerosene and the desire.
I'm trying to start a flame in the heart of the night

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh you gotta fire and it's burnin' in the rain.
Thought that it went out, but it's burnin' just the same.
And you don't look back, not for anything.
'Cause you love someone, you love them all the same.
If you love someone, you love them all the same.

[Chorus]
Oh I feel your heartbeat.
And oh, you're comin' around, comin' around, comin' around
If you can love somebody, love them all the same.
You gotta love somebody, love them all the same.
I'm singing, Oh, I feel your heartbeat.

[Bridge]
Ooh, ooh
I know the memories are rushing into mind
I wanna kiss your scars tonight, baby
'Cause you gotta try
You gotta let me in
Let me in

[Outro]
Oh, I feel your heartbeat
And you're coming around, coming around, coming around
You gotta love somebody
You got, you gotta love somebody
You got, you got
Oh, I feel your heartbeat

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Heartbeat

    I feel that heartbeat is about a couple who have lost eachother because of something that has happened in their relationship but no matter what has happened they can't stop loving eachother as much as they've always have and the girl is finally coming around to forgive him for what has happened in their past and their love is strong enough to overcome their hardships. The only thing harder than forgiving and being together is not being together. Been there done that.

    This song reminds me of when my mom fell ill and had a severe heart attach, just before my wedding. I kept hearing the song on the radio and the chorus stood out for me "i can feel your heartbeat". I stay in a different town and it was very difficult when I got the news. She is much better now and was present at our wedding! This song will always remind me of her and how much she fought!

    If you love someone you have to accept all of them, and love is not a compromise but a blessing. The writer is saying he has to listen to his heart, and at first he thought this girl wasnt the one for him but maybe he was wrong. It's about loving people for everything, the little things they do, the things they say, their quirks, anything and everything about them.

    I think that's its a love song. But at the part where it say "oh you gotta fire and it's burnin' in the rain. Thought that it went out, but it's burnin' just the same" it means don't stop and don't give up on what your believe in because you will always have that and believe in it. I don't think this song is just a love song, its a love song with a meaning and purpose.

    This is a song inspired by the band's visit to south africa, and isaac got told a story from a woman who 'had escaped a horrible situation in the middle of the night and had came back to life' which inspired them with the verses and chorus; especially with the genocides in rwanda. He said the story of the woman was so moving, he didn't know if he could feel his pulse or hers when she held his hand.
