"It's Called A Heart" as written by and Martin Gore....
There's something beating here inside my body
And it's called a heart
You know how easy it is to tear it apart
If I lend it to you, would you keep it safe for me
I'll lend it to you, will you treat it tenderly
There's something beating here inside my body
And it's called a heart
There's a sun shining in the sky
But that's not the reason why I'm feeling warm inside
The answer isn't classified- it's my heart
From the moment I started
I tried to be good about it
Yes I've tried my best
And more or less, I spoke from my heart
There's a lot to be learned
And you learn when your heart gets burned
There's something beating here inside my body
And it's called a heart
You know how easy it is to tear it apart
If I lend it to you, would you keep it safe for me
I'll lend it to you, will you treat it tenderly
There's something beating here inside my body
And it's called a heart
Hearts can never be owned
Hearts only come on loan
If I want it back
I will take it back
I'll take my heart
But I will try my best
And more or less
I will speak from my heart
Yes, I will speak from my heart
Speak from my heart
There's a lot to be learned
And you learn when your heart gets burned
There's something beating here inside my body
And it's called a heart
You know how easy it is to tear it apart
If I lend it to you, would you keep it safe for me
I'll lend it to you, will you treat it tenderly
There's something beating here inside my body
And it's called a heart

    General CommentThis song is such a masterpiece, I can't even begin to start...

    When I listen to it, I see it as a negative song about relationship abuse by females in a partnership. I know its poppy as hell, but look at the title: Its called a Heart. That implies that whoever the narrator is speaking to, has NO IDEA what on earth this passion-center is! "You know how easy it is to tear it apart". Obviously the girl is no stranger to hurting men when they show their feelings towards her. The narrator was honest and "spoke from his heart" and yet he got hurt by his lover. Such a powerful and completely relatable tune.

    Maybe this is just my interpretation with my experiences as a bias, but I really found solace from the words to this song. If I ever met Martin Gore, I'd tell him how happy I am that he wrote a song that I can so greatly relate to. I absolutely adore womankind, but many do have the ability to hurt us men emotionally. = [
    (This can just as easily happen in reverse. Men can also hurt women emotionally, I just found it the way I did because it was written by a male with a male singing)

    General CommentAlan Wilder's less favourite song.

    It's a bit too synth-poppy for that period, between Some Great Reward and Black Celebration, way out of what they were doing, IMHO.
