Heart He Handed Down

His father found a gun Shot the man, who hurt his son And packed his bag so he could run And save us all There's an anchor and a rope Wrapped around faith and hope That he got tattooed on his chest in Istanbul If you feel running in your blood And the dream's not big enough And ya' just can't give it up Once it's found If your feet can't stand still Between the thunder and the thrill Let 'em fly-y-y-y-y-y Never touch the ground I tell you this Inside your chest Beats the heart he handed down Alex sure put up a fight He stood helpless in the night Lost his baby and his wife At the same time So he just started moving Through the jails of country's left in ruin Shovelled coal, on a boat Scared his dreams would go up in smoke If you feel running in your blood And the dream's not big enough And ya' just can't give it up Once it's found If your feet can't stand still Between the thunder and the thrill Let 'em fly-y-y-y-y-y Never touch the ground I tell you this Inside your chest Beats the heart he handed down Everytime you take a breath Oh it's like he never left No matter how far that you run The leaving's just a part of being home If you feel running in your blood And the dream's not big enough And ya' just can't give it up Once it's found If your feet can't stand still Between the thunder and the thrill Let 'em fly-y-y-y-y-y Never touch the ground I tell you this Inside your chest Beats the heart he handed down I tell you this Inside your chest Beats the heart he handed down
