The Disappearing Heart!

I've a little trick
I suggest you learn it quick
before you even start
practice every night
till you're sure you've got it right
The Disappearing Heart!
entertain your friends
with insults and amends
watch their jaws drop
immerse yourself with care
leaving just enough room to spare
you'll have them screaming "Stop!"
that way, when everything
you know comes
barrelling down from above
you'll look wonderful
that way,
when everyone you've
ever dared to trust
gives you a shove
you'll look wonderful
you never loved
at the end of the night
give your heart away
but put it on a string
it's a quick cheap laugh
but it goes over well
sends them off smiling
that way, when everything you know comes
barrelling down from above
you'll look wonderful
you never really loved
