"Heart of Mine" as written by and Bob Dylan....
Heart of mine be still
You can play with fire but you'll get the bill
Don't let her know
Don't let her know that you love her
Don't be a fool, don't be blind
Heart of mine

Heart of mine go back home
You got no reason to wander, no reason to roam
Don't let her see
Don't let her see where you're going
Don't put yourself over the line
Heart of mine

Heart of mine go back where you have been
It'll be only trouble for you if you let her in
Don't let her know
Don't let her know that you love her
Don't be a fool, don't be blind
Heart of mine

Hear of mine so malicious and so full of guile
Give you an inch and you'll take a mile
Don't let yourself fall
Don't let yourself stumble
If you can't do the time, don't do the crime
Heart of mine

    General Commentthe song really is beautiful BD writes a m a z i n g lyrics. However, in terms of the situation, it's all about people's foolish pride. Life's way too short to use force to make ur heart be still ya know...

    General CommentI love this song. Seems to be about his longing for a girl he knows doesn't want him. He tells himself not to show his hand so to speak. Don't declare your love for her because she isn't interested. Makes me think of a girl I love right now. So sad.

    General Commenti always get the feeling his heart is the excited jovial music because the lyrics are trying to persuade his heart not to open up to this girl but love cant be tamed and i think the music is so mirthful compared to the lyrics.

    what a poet though

    General Commenti sort of got the feeling that he's already in a relationship but his heart is wondering off

    My InterpretationTo me, it's about the anxiety that comes with love. The music is celebratory and upbeat which juxtapose with the melancholy lyrics of repression. "Don't let her know..." Falling in love brings back memories of failures and heartbreak so, although his heart is filled with the euphoria of love's bliss, his head tells him not to let on how he feels so as to avoid more pain. Great song on an over-looked album. (There's also a fantastic live version on Biograph.)
