I only had one heart to give away & I gave it away in youthful exuberance.
Now I lean forward into a short future & a long past passing from remembrance.
I only had one heart to give away I’ve spent a long time “in love” & I’m weary.
Now I still wait for him to sit by me cause that’s all you want in your life when life’s dreary
I only had one heart to give and I shouldn’t have given it to him in Springtime.
I sit chilly in Fall facing winter & my lover/friend is lagging his way behind my Time.
I only had one heart to give & I gave it away to carrying friendship instead of a love I wanted.
Yet I still hold out hope that he might one day see that it’s better to be loved than flaunted.
