This Heart

Nanci Griffith


This heart was almost taken
This heart had a love of it's own
This heart was reawakened
When you came along

This heart was born feet runnin'
This heart saw your porch light on
This heart hit the sidewalk wonderin'
Why you left it on

(chorus)

This heart was stranded in the winter
Was stuck out in a blizzard in it's summer clothes
This heart knows
When the love comes
And when it goes

This heart hears the telephone ringin'
This heart's gonna let it go
'Cuz this heart knows the bells she's hearin'
Aren't the telephone
This heart has heard your laughter
This heart has learned how to smile
This heart'll be your true believer
If you'll stay awhile

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)

This heart... This heart... This heart
This heart... This heart... This heart

(repeat chorus)

This heart was almost taken
This heart was born feet runnin'
This heart hears the telephone ringin'
Gonna let it go
This heart... This heart... This heart
This heart... This heart... This heart
This heart... This heart... This heart
With this ticket for this outbound plane
Oh, I've been here before
Somehow this doesn't feel the same
Talk is cheap
So we could talk all night long
And we may never figure out just
where your love went wrong

(chorus)

'Cuz I don't wanna be standin' here
Don't wanna be talkin' here
And I don't really care who's to blame
'Cuz if love won't fly on it's own
free will
It's gonna catch that outbound plane

The old folks say
That love's not forever anymore
Because these young people walk
away from love alone
To pace the floor
Young or old I say that love is still the same
You may walk away from love but
you'll fall head and heels again

(repeat chorus)

Two lonely hearts in this airport
knowing
Neither cares where that other
heart is going
But, if love won't fly on it's own
free will... it's gonna catch that
outbound plane

That frown you're wearing's
Just you're halo turned upside down
Where is the laughter we once
shared back in the lost and found?
These broken wings are gonna leave
me here to stand my ground
You can have this ticket for that
lonely plane that's flying out

(repeat chorus)
