Slow Healing Heart Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I left, I left walkin' wounded
And made my escape from the rain
Still a prisoner of hurt

I had months worth the work
Freein' my mind of the pain
I had hours to sit alone in the dark

Listenin' to sad songs and comin' apart
Lord knows I made cryin' an art
We give a slow healing heart

Slow healing heart, dyin' to mend
It's longing for love lonely again
When a spirit is broken and the memories start
Nothing moves slower than a slow healing heart

How I prayed for blind faith to lead me
To places where I'm not afraid
Now I'm doing fine
Both in body and mind

Some hurts take longer to fade
There's a part of my feelings
Ever on guard against looks that are tender

Words that are hard
I still remember those cutting remarks
We give a slow healing heart

A slow healing heart is dying to mend
Longing for love lonely again
When the spirit is broken and the memories start
Nothing moves slower than a slow healing heart
Nothing moves slower than a slow healing heart
