about

Cheating Heart is the second single from the bands third studio album ‘Aurora' set for release in 2017. A tale of falling in and out of love with a cheater, and how you can easily lose your own sense of identity by trying to live in a situation where they hurt you but won’t let you go.

Bluesy and sultry, it takes the listener on a journey through heartbreak, with an instrumental breakdown which comes to a crashing crescendo.

lyrics

Lyrics

Well you captured me, with those pretty eyes
How could I not see, see through all your lies
Then you stole my heart and bound it close to you
All that charm and guile; what else could I do?

You’ve got a cheating heart but you won’t let me go, no
I’ve gotta get away

I hear you creeping in while I’m feigning sleep
All this pretending, how could I not see?
I’ve gotta leave this place before I lose myself
Gotta get away before I’m just a shell

You’ve got a cheating heart but you won’t let me go, no
I’ve gotta get away
And I just can’t lie to myself when you tell me you love me
And pretend I’m OK

So I’ve packed my bags, leaving on the next train
No I won’t look back, won’t be back again

You’ve got a cheating heart but you won’t let me go, no
I’ve gotta get away
And I just can’t lie to myself when you tell me you love me
And pretend I’m OK
I can’t pretend I’m OK
With your cheating heart
