"Whatever's Written in Your Heart" as written by and Gerry Rafferty....
Wakin' up here on a rainy day
I swore last time that I would stay away
I came down here to talk to you
I said this time I might get through.
I heard us speak but all the words were dead
We talked all night and left it all unsaid
So we agree to disagree
At least we got our memory.

Whatever's written in your heart, that's all that matters
You'll find a way to say it all someday (yeah)
Whatever's written in your heart, that's all that matters
Yeah, night and day, night and day.

You've got your secrets yeah and I've got mine
We've played this game now for a long long time
You don't lean on anyone
You never had no place to run.

You never wanted me to get too close
We love and hate the ones we need the most
I tried to find a way to you
One thing I could say to you.

Whatever's written in your heart, that's all that matters
You'll find a way to say it all someday (yeah)
Whatever's written in your heart, that's all that matters
Yeah, night and day, night and day.

Maybe I've always set my sights too high
You take the easy way and still get by
I know there ain't no special way
We all get there anyway.

I heard us speak but all the words were dead
Talked all night and left it all unsaid
So we agree to disagree
At least we got our memory.

Whatever's written in your heart, that's all that matters
You'll find a way to say it all someday (yeah)
Whatever's written in your heart, that's all that matters
Yeah, night and day, night and day.

Yeah, night and day and day
Yeah, night and day and day (whatever's written in your heart)

    General CommentA fantastic song that captures the mood of a break up / disfunctional relationship perfectly (both musically and lyrically).

    The song took on a new deeper meaning during my divorce, particularly "I heard us speak but all the words were dead, We talked all night and left it all unsaid" which captured the imagery of countless (pointless) late night discussions.

    Pure mastery.

    General CommentA wonderful song... sung by an a capella chorus made up of family members for the documentary made after his death...available on youtube, of course.
