Music Monday: Hearts of Stone by Southside Johnny

Last night, Rex and I went out to see Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes at Martell's Tiki Bar in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. He's probably been performing there the last week of the summer for the past 25 or 30 years, and I've been going since I was in high school in the '80s.

Southside closed the show with a classic... Hearts of Stone:

You stare in the mirror at the lines in your face
And you try to see, girl
The way things were when we were at your place
In the days it was just you and me, girl
And you cry because things ain't like before
Well don't you know they can't be that way anymore
But don't worry baby


I can't talk now, I'm not alone
So put your ear close to the phone
'Cause this is the last dance
This is the last chance for hearts of stone

If there was something, baby, that I could do
Something that would last, honey, I would
But we all know, girl, especially you do
How you can't return to your past, no
So girl close your eyes and I'll be there
Hold me once more and we can go anywhere
Ah, we could


And you cry because things ain't like before
Well don't you know they can't be like that anymore
