Poe – Terrified Heart lyrics

Second phone call to mother

Mother's answering machine: hello. Nobody's
Home. Please leave A message
after the beep, and somebody'll get back to you.

Mom? You there? Are you sleeping? I'm so bummed.
I'll sing a little song and maybe... You'll pick up:

Sometimes, I'm terrified of my heart
Of it's constant hunger
For whatever it is it wants
(speaking) The way it stops...

[The line below is actually at the beginning of Track 7, "Wild".]
... And starts.
