"Sentimental Heart" as written by and Zooey Deschanel....
Cried all night until there was nothing more
What use am I as a heap on the floor?
Heaving devotion but it's just no good
Taking it hard just like you knew I would

Old habits die hard
When you got, when you got a sentimental heart
Piece of the puzzle and you're my missing part
Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?

Cried all night until there was nothing more
What use am I as a heap on the floor?
Heaving devotion but it's just no good
Taking it hard just like you knew I would

Old habits die hard
When you got, when you got a sentimental heart
Piece of the puzzle and you're my missing part
Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?

    General CommentI thought it changed to "I'm your missing part" at some point.

    General CommentI thought it was "heathen devotion", but "heaving" makes more sense.

    Lyric CorrectionFrom the official website:

    Cried all night ‘til there was nothing more
    What use am I as a heap on the floor?
    Heaving devotion but it’s just no good
    Taking it hard just like you knew I would

    Old habits die hard
    When you’ve got
    When you’ve got a sentimental heart
    Piece of the puzzle you’re my missing part
    Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?
    Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?

    Cried all night ‘til there was nothing more
    What use am I as a heap on the floor?
    Heaving devotion but it’s just no good
    Taking it hard just like you knew I would

    Old habits die hard
    When you’ve got When you’ve got a sentimental heart
    Piece of the puzzle, I’m your missing part
    Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?
    Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?
