"The Heart Won't Lie (Duet with Reba McEntire)" as written by and Donna Terry Weiss Kim Carnes....
Looking back over the years
Of all the things I've always meant to say
But the words didn't come easily
So many times through empty fears
Of all the nights I tried to pick up the phone
So scared of who might be answering

You try to live your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

[Chorus]
Cause the heart won't lie
Sometimes life gets in the way
But there's one thing that won't change
I know I've tried
The heart won't lie
You can live your alibi
Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise
The heart won't lie

Long after tonight
Will you still hear my voice through the radio
Old desires make us act carelessly
Long after tonight, after the fire
After the scattered ashes fly
Through the four winds blown and gone
Will you come back to me

You try to love your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

[Chorus]

    General Commentthis is about a woman who is still deeply in love with a man and she has tried to go on with her life. Seeing him again just brings all of the feelings to the surface and she feels that he can see through her attempts to disguise them.

    General CommentTo me, this song means that some things are matters of the heart, plain and simple. Others are matters of the head, and the two shouldn't be confused with one another.
