Collective Heartbeat - Howard Jones

There's a person I know ok its you and me keeps coming up against a brick wall
Always blaming complaining but sustaining a reluctance to change at all
Obstacles and ridicule are common in his head
Does he even listen to the collective heartbeat

Here's the card that you've been given it's not marked but it's neatly written
Here's the life that you are living come on and choose a role that you feel happy in

You get hurt end up leaving but to stay is most revealing
Take the knocks get the meaning before moving on up to lift the imaginary ceiling
Beyond that firewall is a devastating view
Take the time to listen to the collective heartbeat

Here's the card that you've been given it's not marked but it's neatly written
Here's the life that you are living come on and choose a role that you feel happy in

You can't go round it or under it or over it or back away
Face on, Head to head, Eye to eye, not tomorrow but today

Here's the card that you've been given it's not marked but it's neatly written
Here's the life that you are living come on and choose a role that you feel happy in
