From the recording All You Can Love

Lyrics

VERSE
There’s the matter of us falling in love
And there’s the matter of us falling out
I say there’s nothing love can’t rise above
But I don’t always know what I’m talkin’ about

PRE-CHORUS
On the subject (though) (now) of how I feel
I know I know what’s real

CHORUS
At the heart of the matter is my heart
Served on a silver platter just to you
But I heard it clatter as it fell apart
When you broke my heart in two
At the heart of the matter is my heart

VERSE
All the love you brought when you arrived
Has vanished in the air
I thought the love we had could be revived
But about my heart you didn’t care

Repeat PRE-CHORUS

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
I gave my heart to you so completely
But you treated my gift with contempt
And you didn’t even do it discreetly
You didn’t even make an attempt

Repeat PRE-CHORUS

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
I don’t think hearts are meant to be broken
But, Lord knows, you broke mine

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
At the heart of the matter is my heart
