It was a perfect day, when I called to say
‘I’m on the way to you, tomorrow’
I’d escaped my hell, and later at The Roosevelt
You took away all my sorrow

Then I disappeared on you, flew into the blue
Your silver screen end of scene come true
And I left you hanging on, as out time slipped away
What a mistake

So please, don’t pull my heartstrings
From a thousand miles away
Please, don’t pull my heartstrings,
Cos they’re already strained

It was a perfect day, when I called to say
‘I’m on the way to you, tomorrow’

Now I love to hear from you, and how you’re getting on
But I breathe a sigh when no letters come
Cos getting on with getting on, still feels so wrong
And I ain’t that strong

So please, don’t pull my heartstrings
From a thousand miles away
Please, don’t pull my heartstrings

We’d be dancing round in small circles,
To your favourite song
Drinking whiskey ’til the morning light led us home
I don’t wanna know

So please, don’t pull my heartstrings
From a thousand miles away
Please, don’t pull my heartstrings,
Cos they’re already strained
