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

CHORUS

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

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
