"A Good Heart" as written by and Maria Louisa Mckee....
I hear a lot of stories, I suppose they could be true
All about love and what it can do for you
High is the risk of striking out, the risk of getting hurt
And still I have so much to learn

Well I know 'cause I think about it all the time
I know that real love is hard to find

And a good heart these days is hard to find
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 how I've grown
Anything is better than being alone

Well I know 'cause I learn a little every day
I know 'cause I listen when the experts say that

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

As I reflect on 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 be worth it in the end

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

A good heart these days is hard to find
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
I find it hard
(baby, baby)
I find it hard
I find it hard
I find it hard
I find it hard (baby, baby)
I find it hard
I find it hard

    General CommentWritten by Maria McKee about the end of her relationship with Benmont Tench (a member of Tom Petty's Band). Tench responded by writing "You Little thief" also recorded by Fergal. So Sharkey recorded two singles about the breakup of a relationship each written from the opposing viewpoint. Kinda cool
