A Good Heart

4:26

I hear a lot of stories, I suppose they could be true
All about love, and what it can do to you
Highest risk of striking out, the risk of getting hurt
And still, I have so much to learn

I know, ’cause I think about it all the time
I know that real love is quite a price

And a good heart these days is hard to find (A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind
A good heart these days is hard to find
So, please, be gentle with this heart of mine

My expectations may be high, I blame it on my youth
Soon enough I’ll learn the painful truth
I’ll face it like a fighter, then boast of how I’ve grown
Anything is better than being alone

I know ’cause I learn a little every day
I know ’cause I listen when the experts say

That a good heart these days is hard to find (A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind
A good heart these days is hard to find
So, please, be gentle with this heart of mine, yeah!

Yes, I’m reflecting all my childhood dreams
My ideas of love weren’t as foolish as they seemed
If I don’t start looking now, I’ll be left behind
And a good heart these days, it’s hard to find

I know it’s a dream I’m willing to defend
I know it will all be worth it in the end

And a good heart these days is hard to find (A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind
A good heart these days is hard to find
So, please, be gentle with this heart of mine

And a good heart these days is hard to find (A good heart)
True love, the lasting kind
A good heart these days is hard to find
So, please, be gentle with this heart (With this heart) of mine

Ohohohoho
(A good heart) Baby, baby
(A good heart) Ohohohoho
(A good heart) Ah, ah, aha

(A good heart) Keep it up, keep it up, keep it up, keep it up
(A good heart) Baby, baby
(A good heart) Ohohohoho
