The Heart’s Tremolo

he couldn’t bear to be so careless
hiding a knife behind the lust
couldn’t bear to see the first scratches
on a polished perfect face of total trust

this is no time to be tentative
I raise me lips to the task
but I am not sure that I can afford
the honesty of the outcast

– Jenny Toomey, from the lyrics of The Heart’s Tremolo by Toomey’s 1990’s band Tsunami.
