 Lyrics

I poured my heart into a song
And when you hear it, please remember from the start
You won’t be hearing just the words and tune of a song
You will be listening to my heart

I poured my heart into a song
And I’m afraid the words I chose are not so smart
I couldn’t think of clever things to say in my song
I had to say it with my heart

If it’s never played
On the hit parade
It will still contain a heart that is beating true
If it’s not a hit
I won’t mind a bit
Long as it conveys the love that I bear for you

Here is my heart wrapped in a song
And if you take it, please don’t tear my song apart
For if you do you won’t be just destroying a song
You will be tearing up my heart
