In A Heartbeat

A life flashes, a life fades
A life goes off like a hand grenade
A life is broken, a life is made
In a heartbeat

In a heartbeat I knew
There was no forgetting you
But if you want I’ll pretend to
In a heartbeat

In a heartbeat I’ll make
The unforgivable mistake
Give me your hopes and watch them break
In a heartbeat

In a heartbeat lives turn
Inside out, crash and burn
All these twists can’t be unturned
In a heartbeat

You know my heart as well as me
You know how soft this thing can be
You know I’d give it to you free
In a heartbeat

There’s a place in there for you
No matter what you do
You just looked at me and knew
In a heartbeat

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
