"Only Heart" as written by and John Mayer....
Do not waste this evening
Baby I'm begging you
Your big imagination's playing its tricks on you
If you think my up and leavings something I'm gonna do
Feel my chest when I look at you
Baby you

You got my only heart
Yea, you got my only heart
Yea, you got my only
Only heart

It's so hard to be so far out
Living our separate lives
Your phone was really broken
I tried your number twice
And if you need confirmation, baby I understand
It's alright if you want me to
Tell you you

You got my only heart
Yea, you got my only heart
Yea, you got my only
Only heart

And you live like your hand's on the horn, baby
I adore you, but there's a hole in the cup that should hold my love
Hold my love
If you let, if you let, if you let me leave
I swear, I never will
Remember, now you

You got my only heart
Yea, you got my only heart
Yea, you got my only heart
Yea, you got my only heart
Yea, you got my only heart

    General CommentNo one's commented? wild.

    This song is, I think, about a guy who has to leave his girl for a period of time but he plans to come back. We all know how emotional and insecure girls can get. Basically, he's just reassuring her. The line where he says "If you let me leave, I swear I never will", I think he's saying "just let me go do this thing, don't make a big deal out if it, I will like you more if you just chill and I promise I'll come back"

    I guess its easy for me to relate to this song because my fiance and I are about 200 miles apart in our last year of college.

    General CommentAdorable. John refers to it as his "80s pop song". :) It is very pop-py, but cute nontheless. I love the "feel my chest when I look at you" line. Adorable.

    General CommentI love this song! This and Split Screen Sadness, and New Deep are the best songs on the LP. Anyway, I think that this song is about trying to convince someone that they are the only one for you. This person has abandonment issues. ("If you let me leave, I swear I never will..)

    General CommentHow come no one's commented on Only Heart? This is one of the best songs on HT! Even with the cutesy lyrics, I love the guitar playing. Very retro like the album sleeve says.

    General CommentOne of my instant favourites, perhaps because of the obvious sweetness ("Feel my chest when I look at you", awwwww!). But beyond it, you find a deeper meaning, like in any John's song, a woman's insecurity and he being totally open about the way he sees her behaviour: "you live like your hand's on the horn, baby" (light criticism). "There's a hole in the cup that should hold my love": in my opinion, a sweet way of saying "don't you see you're losing me that way?" . I wish I had that way of being assertive making my points...

    Without being totally related to this one, I enjoy it very much, mainly because of its positivity at the end(unlike most of other's John's ones).

    General Commentcorrection: it is "And you live like your hand's on the horn baby" (and NOT "You live like you hedge on the whole thing").
