Day 3

Hello and welcome back!  We’re into the thick of it now and already halfway through your exclusive Lawless Luke EP journey, time fly’s when you’re having fun.  Today’s track is called ‘Heart of Gold’ and was one of the first tracks that I wrote for this EP. 

It always amazes me how tracks start life as one thing and then metamorphosise into something completely different in the studio, like a beautiful butterfly spreading its wings for the first time.  I always wanted to include some crazy ass breakbeat hip hop drum beats in this song, but what materialised in the studio really was something special.  When I came up with the drum beat I was like WHOOOAAAHHH NELLY!  Hold onto your, nipple tassels, things just got funky. 

Anyway I hope you enjoy the song, and I will be in contact tomorrow for day 4 of your exclusive Lawless Luke tour.

Demo Video...

Here’s a live demo video I recorded of this song, a couple of years back. Once again, as with ‘While You’re Gone’, you can really hear how this song has developed in the studio.


Verse 1

Can’t you see, you’re hurting her before,

Didn’t you realise, before you walked out the door,

I don’t mind, I’ll let them take your soul,

It won’t be long till you lose…


Don’t you ever let her go,

You know, she’s got a heart of gold.

Verse 2

The Worlds unkind, broken and deformed,

Mother nature, will be forever mourned,

We don’t care, what you say,

Won’t be long till the…


Don’t you ever let her go,

You know, she’s got a heart of gold.


Don’t you ever let her go,

Don’t let them take your soul.

Verse 3

Time will show,

Just what you know,

Time will tell,

If you’re in hell!


Don’t you ever let her go,

You know, she’s got a heart of gold.
