This about missing the one you love. As they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I've heard that absinthe can make the hearty grow fonder still. Recorded by Jeremy P Martin, who also plays guitar and bass. We recorded the keyboard parts at his Walpole St studio in Kew in 2007, the drums at Whitehorse Music on April 25, 2008 and the vocals in 2012 at Jeremy's new facility in Brunswick. So it took a little while, however we did put out the Forget Me Nots album in between, in 2010.


Kickstart My Heart
(Bruce Pumpa)

Kickstart my heart
I couldn’t take another day being apart
Can’t wait till you’re here with me
I really miss your company

Didn’t know how much I loved you, till I thought that I could lose you
Of all the girls I know, you know I’d always choose you
It’s been bubbling under for a while
I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t see your smile


There’s something I should tell you, there’s something I should say
I really love to love you, really love it if you’d stay
It’s been disconcerting ever since you went away
I want to be together, forever and a day


(Piano Solo)

When we are together it’s hard to quantify
The feeling is electric and the sparks begin to fly
When we are together and it’s only you and me
I know that sweet love feeling is the way it's meant to be

(Chorus x 2)
Kickstart my heart (X4)
